Features

Extract tight and unique samples from noisy loops

From 0% to 100%, move from subtle effects, to tight and controlled sounds, and finally into click and transient sound design territory. This controls screams to be automated! Use automation on it to thin out loops in certain sections of your song and bring them back fully when increasing intensity. Doing this will be a game changer in your workflow.

In sync with your music

Use Transient mode to extract specific hits or tighten up complex synth and percussive patterns. Use Beats mode to be time locked with your DAW and, for example, only keep the kick drum in an otherwise busy loop.

Single and
Multi Band algorithm

Extractor uses the power of mulitband processing to smartly extract and tighten sounds troughout the frequency spectrum. For example, you can extract a kick drum with only a short click at the top end but a long bassy tone at the bottom end from an otherwise noisy and complex loop. The Detail control in Single Band is in “Frequency Bias” mode and controls how tightly the different frequency bands are decaying.

2 x 2 Modes

From precise sound extraction to full on beat transformation

Use Transient mode to extract specific hits or tighten up complex synth and percussive patterns. Use Beats mode to be time locked with your DAW and, for example, only keep the kick drum in an otherwise busy loop.

For both modes, choose between Single and Multi Band processing. Use Single Band processing for high and instant transparency. Use the Multi Band option for added intelligent frequency-based processing which extracts the shorter high end while keeping the longer bass frequencies intact.

The best part? Everything can be automated! This plugin is a secret weapon to supercharge your beat productions and mixes adding more intensity and variation to otherwise constant and stale loops.
