R_WARE PORT OF AIRWINDOWS CLIPSOFTLY
AW_ClipSoftly is a port of the Airwindows ClipSoftly. The algorithms have been refined for the VM environment.
TL;DW: ClipSoftly is ClipOnly2 but as a softclipper: a very handy building block.
Special R_Ware treatment with added HQ mode that enables 4x oversampling!
- patch your signal into modules' inputs to apply soft clipping
- patch the modules' outputs to your outputs
- optional: turn on 4x oversampling by clicking the HQ toggle button.
ClipSoftly is ultimate softclipping, using the techniques used on ClipOnly2 for softening the edge of the hard clipping, but on the softest possible clipping. Where ClipOnly2 manipulates the onsets of the brightest transients to give you pure hard-clipping without digital grit, ClipSoftly is doing that without even hardclipping. So what we have here, basically, is a control-less safety clipper, but it’s a saturation effect.
