Boz Digital Labs and RecordingSoftware.com are giving away 2,500 FREE copies of the Little Clipper ($49 regular price) effect in VST, VST3, AU, AAX, and RTAS plugin formats for PC and Mac.
The free licenses are being given away on a first-come, first-served basis, so hurry up and check if you’re among the 2,500 fastest users to claim their freebie at RecordingSoftware.com. The news was first announced exclusively right here on BPB, so chances are you can still grab a free copy of the plugin. Once the first 2,500 licenses are gone, the plugin will be available at a special launch price for a limited time only. After that, the regular list price of $49 will come into effect.
Little Clipper is exactly what its name suggests – an audio clipping tool with a simple and intuitive user interface. It features two clipping modes (soft clipping and hard clipping) with Pull/Push control parameters to adjust the input gain and ceiling. The plugin also features a dry/wet control for easy parallel processing and adjustable stereo configurations for use on stereo buses.
Despite its simple-looking user interface, Little Clipper is more than just a plain old clipping tool on the inside. The developers at Boz Digital Labs describe it as being “sort of a hybrid clipper/limiter” as it lets the user dial in the clipping and limiting flavors in any ratio required to match the characteristics of the audio signal on the input. This is achieved with the Blend Control parameter which covers a range of settings from “heavy distortion to super smooth limiting and everything in between.”
Little Clipper also doesn’t tend to distort and overpower the bass frequencies as regular clippers do, thanks to the adjustable Frequency Sensitivity parameter. To avoid low-end distortion, simply increase the Frequency Sensitivity control to the desired value. CORRECTION: The Frequency Sensitivity feature will be included in the forthcoming Big Clipper plugin. As for use on buses and the master channel, Little Clipper can operate in Stereo, Mid/Side, Mid Only, and Side Only modes to handle all sorts of stereo sources.
On a related note, Boz Digital Labs is running a 55% OFF deal on their Imperial Delay and Manic Compressor plugins which are currently priced at $67.05 instead of the regular $149 price tags. The offer ends on March 10th, 2018.
