Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
NovoNotes has released Ambience Enhancer Lite; a free sound field plugin for macOS that can transform the mood of your recording while leaving the direct sound untouched.
It's a common desire to alter the atmosphere of a recording, especially if you're looking to make your song sound much grander than the location in which you recorded it. A common technique to achieve this would be the use of delay and reverb to simulate the desired location, but this comes with caveats to the sound of your audio.
With Ambience Enhancer it takes just three parameter controls; Ambience Gain, Ambience Low Pass and Ambience Delay to start altering the mood and atmosphere of your track. The ambient content is isolated, so any effects you add will only affect those elements.
As well as being useful for changing the atmosphere of a song, mixed media composers can also use this to make the audio match the location in the picture they're working to for a more immersive mix.
Ambience Enhancer Lite is currently only available for macOS 11 Big Sur or higher (VST3/AU) and can be downloaded for free using the link below.
