Eventide/Newfangled Audio Elevate Bundle 1.5Eventide and Newfangled Audio have announced Elevate Bundle 1.5, adding the new Saturate and Punctuate plug-ins and making improvements to EQuivocate and Elevate itself.

Saturate is a spectral clipper plug-in, useful for mixing or mastering. As such, it adds up to 24dB of drive with a variable Clipper Shape parameter that moves from a soft curve to hard clipping. Spectral processing maintains the tonal balance of the distorted signal, no matter how hard it is pushed. Saturate automatically compensates output level based on the Drive control or, alternatively, allows this to be controlled manually.

As a transient emphasis plug-in, Punctuate is useful for mixing or mastering. Musically speaking, it offers up to 26 auditory bands of Transient Emphasis or suppression while its unique Adaptive Transient and Adaptive Length controls allow algorithms to tailor each band’s transient shaper. Customisable parameters for each band also allow users to tweak the result, if needed.

The update also brings feature improvements to the original pairing of EQuivocate, an Auditory Graphic EQ based on the critical bands of the human ear, and its Elevate namesake, a unique multi-band limiter, human ear EQ, and audio maximiser, released in 2017 as ‘the most advanced mastering plug-in ever created’.

EQuivocate benefits from a new Range feature, allowing users to scale or invert the total dB range for the EQ in order to change the total amount of EQ applied after setting the individual bands. This also allows users to scale the range of the Match EQ before and after it has been set. Additionally, each band benefits from enable buttons to easily turn bands on and off for better workflow with improvements implemented elsewhere also assisting.

Elevate Bundle 1.5 (comprising the Elevate, EQuivocate, Punctuate, and Saturate AAX/AU/VST plug-ins for Mac OS-X 10.7+ and Windows 7+) is available at a promo price of US$139 until 5 September 2018, with a regular price of US$199 afterward. Owners of EQuivocate can upgrade to Elevate Bundle 1.5 for US$149, while wners of Elevate can upgrade to Elevate Bundle 1.5 free at any time.
