REQ: Impact Soundworks - Peak Rider 2 screenshot
Peak Rider 2 is a supremely powerful dynamics plugin in VST, AU, AAX, and RTAS formats. Unlike any other kind of dynamics processor, Peak Rider 2 is like a whole arsenal of FX and mix plugins combined into one, with a totally new approach to handling any kind of audio material.

At its heart, Peak Rider 2 uses three detection modes to analyzes a sidechain signal and creates a smooth, continuous 'envelope' from it. This envelope can be split into stereo or frequency bands, EQed, and used to control your main input with 5 unique processing modes. The sidechain can be anything at all, and PR2 can even generate its own signal using a built-in synth.

Whether PR2 uses boost or attenuation totally depends on the sidechain and input material, allowing for endless creative possibilities. Here are just a few uses:

Make huge boosts and cuts without affecting volume or loudness
Use a drum track's own envelope and adjust it, effectively becoming a very powerful multi-band transient designer
Match the peaks of a rhythmic track to a static synth, creating an all-new part full of life and motion
Level the volume of an unruly vocal by matching it to a set volume
Saturate and distort any instrument without losing any dynamics at all
Seamlessly remove mic bleed from a noisy isolated track
Processing Modes
Exact: The classic, core feature of Peak Rider 2. The sidechain dynamics are applied to the main input, with full control over range and envelope.

Noboost: Similar to Exact, but does not apply any gain. Instead, the plugin only rides the main input downward as needed.

Duck: Rides the main input up or down depending on band gain and the ratio of sidechain envelope level to main input level.

Expand: Similar to a mastering limiter, with a variable output ceiling based on the sidechain's envelope.

EQ: Fully featured, super precise parametric EQ with up to 12 bands that compensates for volume changes!

Additionally, there are three detection algorithms which impact how the envelope is generated and analyzed.

Peak: A real-time, fast peak-meter style envelop designed for controlling transient-heavy material.

RMS: A real-time smooth envelope designer that is ideal for tonal and elongated material, leaving transients less affected.

Smooth: A windowed-average envelope generator that uses a variable lookahead, introducing some latency but offering time-accurate detection. This algorithm is very effective on tonal instruments.

This soft was 2 weeks ago here, I don't remember who was published (it was for Mac), but it was only an hour and then it was retired. The user and the password, when authorizing it, were correct, however, the time-bomb appeared. I gave time to download and try it, and the truth is that it is a real wonder. I hope that someone can upload a functional version again to try it some more time. Thanks!

I posted the initial request for it on 9/22/2018. For some reason even the request for it was removed a couple weeks ago in addition to that release that didn't work. Hope to see a working version of it as well. Seems like it would be a walk in the park for R2R or V.R if they go at this one.

I'm agree with you... The release a few weeks ago I downloaded it, but in 2 hours was remove, the user ID and the key didn't work... What do you think about this plugin? I think is a really good tool...
