Turning the central button to the sweet side decreases the transients amplitude. To the bitter side, the transients amplitude is magnified. BitterSweet also features a control for processing the signal. When the main position is selected, the process affects the stereo signal. If Center is selected, only the M signal of the internal MS matrix is processed. If stereo is selected, only the S signal from the MS matrix is processed. Three transient detection modes can be selected. Varying periods of integration for transients can be accessed. A Link function is available to compensate the output gain with respect to the transient processing setting. Like all Flux:: plug-ins, it features 64 bit floating point processing, up to 8 channels and up to 8 FS (384 KHz). Center and Stereo Modes are only available in stereo processing (2 channels). We hope you will enjoy this new toy and make your Mix Sweeter or Bitterer. BitterSweet II is only available in native version for AU, RTAS and VST. Neither Flux or iLok dongle, nor registration are required.
Signal Processing Features Output Gain, controlling the gain at the end of the processing. Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal. Three different transient processing modes: Main, using a regular stereo signal scheme for the processing. Center, processing the Mid channel only, very efficient for snare and kick drums. Stereo, processing the Side channel only, very efficient for panned rhythmic/transient instruments.
Processing Specifications BitterSweet, as all Flux:: plug-ins, provide Up to 8 channels Input/Output.* 64-bits internal floating point processing. Sampling rate up to 384 kHz DXD (Pyramix DSP based). Sampling rate up to 384 kHz for native (AU/RTAS/VST). *Not when using Center and Stereo mode, as they are M/S modes requiring stereo operation. Compatibility All major native formats are supported Windows - XP, Vista, 7 all in both 32 and 64 bits. VST (2.4) RTAS* Mac OS X (Intel) - 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 in 32 bits. VST (2.4) AU RTAS* *The RTAS version requires ProTools 8 or later.
