MDrumLeveler is a unique tool specially designed for drums and percussive materials. It will improve the drum performances, stabilize drum hit levels, remove leakage and ambience and let you control the drum hits better than you ever could with traditional tools.
Truly transparent event-based processing:
Traditional dynamic processors (compressors, expanders, gates...) detect levels of input samples and transform them depending on the transfer curve. This means that the gain is changing on every sample. This can be very well used to shape the sound itself, but it is hard to make it transparent if you want to level individual drum hits.
MDrumLeveler on the other hand analyzes the incoming audio, detects events (drum hits for example) in it and transforms them. This means it adjusts the level of each event, but does not alter the actual sound or color, so the results are unbelievably transparent.
Improves drum performances:
No drummer's performance is perfect, each hit has a different velocity, and difference in levels are even exaggerated by the recording equipment. This plug-in can even out drum hit levels, so the performance will just sound perfect even if, well, it is not.
Removes leakage and ambience:
Traditionally you use gates to attenuate the audio in between separate hits in order to remove ambience and leakage from other instruments. That is necessary for modern tight mixes and is very hard to accomplish with standard tools. MDrumLeveler can do it with unbelievable ease and provides unbelievable results thanks to the advanced event-based processing.
Drum envelope shaping:
MDrumLeveler lets you shape the envelope of each drum hit. Whether you want a longer body or a faster release, it is no problem for MDrumLeveler. And you don't need to spend hours experimenting, MDrumLeveler gives you direct control of these parameters.
Adjustable to any audio material:
Drum recordings are rarely flawless, usually contain lots of leakage, ambience, artifacts... MDrumLeveler's event detector is highly adjustable. Among other settings, you can use 2 parallel resonant band-pass filters to target the dominant frequencies of the drum in which you are interested.
Can be used live:
MDrumLeveler's job cannot be done without looking "into the future". By default it looks 20ms ahead, which provides 100% accuracy for all standard drums. But you can get much lower - in most cases look-ahead below 5ms still works perfectly, good enough for using it live. MDrumLeveler can know how hard you hit the drum just a few milliseconds after you do it.

System Requirements & Compatibility :
- Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- VST / VST3 / AAX compatible host (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support
Always use 32-bit plug-ins in 32-bit hosts, or 64-bit plug-ins in 64-bit hosts!
64-bit plug-ins can't work in 32-bit hosts even if the operating system is 64-bit. Do NOT use 32-bit plug-ins in 64-bit hosts. They would have to be bridged and can become slow and unstable. Please check your product PDF documentation (available directly from its web page) for more information and installation instructions.
- macOS 10.14 and newer (64-bit)
- VST / VST3 / AU / AAX compatible host)
- Intel/AMD/M1 processor with SSE2 support
- M1 (native Apple Silicon ARM CPU) support
But even when your computer is below the minimum requirements, the plugins may work just fine. Please use the trial period to find out.
Please check your product PDF documentation (available directly from its web page) for more information and installation instructions.
Linux is not directly supported, but it is apparently possible to run the plug-ins via Wine. Before installing, you have to make sure that your ".wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/" directory is populated with Microsoft True Type Fonts (which is generally available as a package on Linux distributions).
