ADClip2

ADClip2Demo was an experiment, to see how ADClip would be if it had loads of parameters you could alter. Input Gain was a boost, as you’d expect. Edge Smooth is part of the basic ADClip code. It’s letting you scale back the edge softening on clipping: less means harsher edges. Highs Restore is from 3DClip, and […]

ADClip

The original ADClip was invented to deal with an issue with clipping: you get a hard, fatiguing sound. Soft clipping reduces this problem, but makes things sound more trashy and grungey. What ADClip did to fix this was, keeping track of the surroundings of a clipped sample. If it’s in the middle of a batch […]
