Welcome to this week’s edition of Plugin Picks where we showcase plug-ins by lesser-known developers! We always have some deals on offer, too! This week, we have Techivation T-Puncher, Excite Audio KSHMR Chain, and 3 exclusive deals. Have fun and see you next week!
Developer Techivation introduced a brand new plug-in called T-Puncher. It’s a tool meant to make drums sound punchy and powerful, in the most musical way possible.
To that, T-Puncher seems to primarily be a clipper with a big Punchiness dial and controls for Stereo link, Soft/Hard Clip, and Input/Output gain. Techivation likes to keep its plug-ins tidy and focused. This one is no exception.
The clipping algorithm makes drums punchy and powerful. Techivation also makes a big point about the plug-in sounding musical rather than artificial. So there’s that.
There is no demo for T-Puncher, but the plug-in is on sale for USD 39 (down from USD 79). The developer provides a 14-day money-back guarantee, so if you don’t like the plug-in, you can simply return it.
Excite Audio KSHMR Chain
KSHMR Chain is an utility that instantly copies your plugin chain from one track to countless others. So no more copy and pasting instances of the same plug-in. Moreover, you can adjust the settings of multiple tracks from a single window and hear the accumulative effect in real-time.
The plug-in comes in two instances: a Leader and a Follower. Add the Leader on one track to load plug-ins, then add a Follower on a different track and link them. Once linked, the Follower will automatically copy all plug-ins and their settings from the Leader.
