After years of creating professional audio tools used by some of the worlds most prolific and successful producers, the SoundSpot team have decided to introduce a series of artist plugins that will bring the workflow of these world-renowned professionals into the hands of music creators worldwide.
The first in our range kicks off with KINETIK, a plugin we have closely developed with STANDERWICK, who in just 5 years has become one of the top-selling global electronic dance music producers with multiple No.1 selling tracks and remixes for Armin Van Buuren and Tiesto to name a few.
This plugin encapsulates and represents STANDERWICK”s production workflow and is a unique tool that bridges across all music genres. We have created something that we are confident will find its way into your production workflow and become a definite reach-to plugin you will use on all of your projects.
KINETIK is a Compressor, EQ and Overdrive in one single easy to use plugin that you’re going to find very useful indeed!
Below is an overview of the plugin’s parameters and how to use the Kinetik to achieve results that will transform your mixes.
The signal chain runs from left to right, starting with the Reduction Parameter.
As an optical style compressor, there is no need for attack and release parameters. You simply pull back the rotary slide to begin the signal reduction. Attached to the reduction function is an option to select between, Transparent (Circles Icon), Analog (Flame Icon) & Optimised (Transient Icon). Each of these settings introduce a different character to the sound allowing you to achieve the best results based on your source material.
Next is the EQ section. This is a 4 band parametric EQ that included high & low shelf/cut options, and also a bell filter for notching or boosting select frequencies. The bandwidth is set to a permanent 12dB oct which after extensive testing has proved to deliver the most natural results. Each EQ can be selected by clicking one of the slide icons.
The final parameter in the chain is the Drive section, which allows you to increase additional harmonics to the sound. The drive function also has the option to select between, Transparent (Circles Icon), Analog (Flame Icon) & Optimised (Transient Icon) the same as found on the Reduction parameter.
