PreSonus teamed up with Waves to offer the OneKnob Louder plugin ($49 value) as a free download until March 15th, 2021.
OneKnob Louder is a loudness booster by Waves, available in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for DAW applications on PC and Mac. It combines limiting and dynamic range compression with auto makeup gain to boost the loudness of the processed audio signal.
Like the rest of the OneKnob product range, OneKnob Louder features a single control knob. It applies compression and limiting at the same time while increasing the gain to match the peak volume of the unprocessed signal.
This kind of streamlined workflow is a double-edged sword. OneKnob Louder isn’t something you’ll want to use for high-precision limiting, in situations like mastering. But, it’s a handy tool for boosting the loudness of a single mix element that needs to stand out.
OneKnob Louder normally costs $49 (it’s currently on a 40% OFF sale when you apply the coupon CREATE40 over at Waves), but you can get it completely free of charge this weekend. You’ll need to visit the giveaway page and fill out a short questionnaire (six questions in total).
The questions are all about your music production skills and your favorite music production software, so it’s easy to complete in a matter of minutes.
On a related note, Waves is currently running a sitewide 40% OFF sale on all products and bundles. Visit their online store and use the coupon code CREATE40 at checkout the get the discount.
Visit the giveaway page linked below to get OneKnob Louder for free. The free download offer expires on March 15th (but the plugin license is yours to keep forever if you grab it until the time runs out).
