Pure Expander 3
Clean up your mix
Pure Expander 3 is within its field a truly versatile processor, which with ease can be used for soft downward expansion in order to clean up spillage issues on (live) recordings, remove noise or reverberation, or leakage from drum sessions. Designed to automatically reduce the gain below the threshold, providing full control over the general behaviour and performance characteristics of how it responds to the incoming audio signal, Pure Expander 3 is offering a wide range of expansion processing capable of anything from mild expansion to hard noise-gating. In addition to the more common dynamics processing controls (ratio, attack, release, etc). Pure Expander 3 provide control over the essential dynamics profile it uses, all in order to offer the user full control over the processing even in the most demanding situations.
Two parameters are provided that are kind of unique to dynamics processing; Dynamics Ratio and Level Independent Detection (L.I.D), using the dynamic range content of the signal and not just the signal levels as standard processors do. Dynamic Ratio is controlling the amount of auto-ratio determined by the signal dynamics and the manual-ratio setting. L.I.D. (Level Independent Detector) controls the amount of auto-threshold determined by the signal dynamics and the manual threshold value, providing processing of the audio signal independently of the sound level and instead in regards to the signal dynamic range.
Pure Expander 3 is available in both 32- and 64- bits, sample rates up to 384 kHz are supported and processing of up to 8 channels for surround/multichannel work is provided. When operating on a multi-channel bus all channels are processed by default, but the processing can be disengaged for any number of channels leaving the material unprocessed and bypassing the original sound. By doing this in combination with serial instances the material on any number of channels can be processed with individual settings.
