Empirical Labs Arousor v2.1.0-R2R screenshot
Team R2R | 12 Feb 2018 | 7.6MB
It’s been 20 years since Empirical Labs released its first compressor, The Distressor. From those early days on, Empirical Labs has been bombarded with requests for a great compressor plugin for those working in the box… and it had to be one with the creamy sound and ease-of-use of our own award winning hardware compressors. We are sure you will find the 20-year wait worth it!

For many years, processing speed, sample rates and copy protection were limiting. Things have changed. Digital Technology can now come very close to having all the wonderful non-linearity and “warts” of the best analog gear. We say “close” because most of Empirical Labs’ analog gear will pass 150KHz easily, and that is something that is impossible with current digital technology. But hey, who hears above 20KHz? ::Spock Eyebrow Raise:: But it is difficult getting everything right up to that 20KHz, especially at sample rates of 48KHz and below.



As this plug-in does all kinds of non-linear stuff, we had to employ a variety of techniques to minimize common digital artifacts found in almost all digital compressors/limiters etc. Unfortunately, these techniques are costly as far as processing, and one has to streamline certain DSP processes for less CPU load without sacrificing any audio quality. Ironically, sometimes stuff that is hard in Analog is easy in Digital, and sometimes stuff that is hard (or impossible) in Digital is easy in Analog.

AROUSOR FEATURES
• Empirical Labs Classic Knee Compression in a plug-in… Finally!

• Foolproof operation – It is almost impossible to get a bad sound.

• Empirical Labs Famous White Knobs, with parameter readout and direct entry.

• Proprietary Empirical Labs Detector modeling. High resolution.

• Broadband Saturator, controllable by user.

A novel approach was used to allow amazing control over peaks.

• Unique AtMod™ Attack Modification Control. Changes the shape of the initial attack, and can lengthen attack times in a different manner than the ATTACK control.

• HP Sidechain EQ

• BP Sidechain EQ

• Rivet, a brick wall ratio great on room mics, and for skimming peaks.

• Linkable with the stereo version.

• BLEND Control – Mix in the dry signal with the compressed one.

• 18 Lock n Load Presets, finely tuned and named intuitively. More coming down the line.

• More backwards compatible features coming.

PLATFORM : WiN32/64 - VST/VST3/AAX(MODiFiED)
LANGUAGE : ENGLiSH
PROTECTiON : WRAPWARDEN/iLOK2 (v4.0.3)

HAPPY NATiONAL FOUNDATiON DAY!

* Includes 32bit version which orinal does not have.
* No iLok driver is required to run.
* Our release loads faster and uses less RAM than original one.

Thanks for your understanding, HOSTS block is really working well for those
fake R2R websites. They had to move their new adderss....

Thank you so much. What a nice surprise.
Come here just to try the software and buy it afterwards.
If I don't like the software I will just DELETE it.

Can't seem to find an actual changelog for Rev2, but as far as I can tell it's mostly a GUI update and a "dry level trim" knob has been added.

It's way more than that. It's on their website, mac uses have been on 'rev2' for ages. It's a great improvement.

Whats New in REV 2:

o AAX-DSP for the MAC. Windows version to follow shortly, pending copy protection repair.
o Greater efficiency, especially in Pro Tools AAX. 1/3rd of the CPU usage!
o Greatly increased Bargraph accuracy. You will find it makes matching a Distressor sound much easier.
o Preset Sharing Function - Works across all platforms and makes it easy to share, even with emails.
o Backwards Compatible with Rev 1.0. Won't "break" your past mixes.
o Graphic and Interface Improvements - New colors, and 3d Depth
o Our first "Expert" Button appears for the BLEND Section. See below. These hidden Expert panels are going to thrill AROUSOR users many times, over the next few years.
o The BLEND section now has an Expert Panel that brings up a panel with a new control to allow perfect matching of levels between Compressed and Dry (un-compressed) signals.
o New Presets from Famous Engineers
o New markings for matching Distressor Detector settings. New Blue Marks on Det HP Freq, Det BP Gain
o Higher resolution readout on Det BP BW. Reads to .01 places.
o Better support for Control Surfaces, including the older Avid D-Command
o Many bug fixes for various DAWs, and operational improvements
o MAC only for now, Windows support coming soon, when copy protection is re-established.

MANY THANKS Team R2R and DECiBELLE ++
..have all a good launch in the new week ....

Damn!!!

I did consider buying this plug-in but to be honest I got really annoyed when Dave Derr (ELI) decided to intentionally delay the updates to the Windows version until the copy protection was "fixed". Creating a situation where Windows users were left in the lurch while Mac users could enjoy bugfixes and feature updates.

The fact that he finally released the Windows update and it's been cracked already just goes to show how pointless the intentional delay was and that it served no purpose but to 1) Annoy and frustrate Windows customers who had paid an absolute premium price, and 2) Deter potential future Windows customers.

Never punish your paying customers for things they have no control over...

You just described the epitome of most piracy protection: it only punishes honest customers and those who were never going to pay for it in the first place won't even notice/care.

quote by FabulousMasterSkillsYep, again let the Mac users pay for development so the windows guys can njoy for free... And even than they still complain about it, strange world it is...

Which Win guys are complaining about this post, where?
