At AES 2019, Nugen Audio unveiled the latest update for its Sigmod software plugin. The update allows Sigmod to host multiple instances of the Insert module and incorporates hosting support for third-party VST2 and AU plugins. This enables users to access a wider pool of plugins – particularly in DAWs that support limited plugin formats – and increases access for creative routing options such as mid/side processing for any stereo or multi-mono plugin.
The company has also implemented a wet/dry control for the Insert module. This provides even further flexibility, allowing users to blend their effected signal with the original sound without the use of an AUX send. Improved navigation controls for third-party plugins, including search bar functionality, enable users to filter by name and increase efficiency and ease of use.
Nugen’s Sigmod software provides custom, simple signal architecture with 12 single-process modules to enhance plugin and DAW functionality. It offers creative new ways to work by allowing users to easily insert, swap and move modules to fit to the correction, conversion and tweaking of audio. Included among the available modules are Mid/side, Protect, Tap, Crossover, Insert (now with VST2/3 and AU), Mute/Solo, Trim, Switch, DC Off-Set, Mono, Phase and Delay.
Several of these modules offer easy access to functionality that is often either missing or difficult to access in certain DAWs. The software is available in AAX, VST2/3, AU and AudioSuite formats in both 32- and 64-bit versions and is available on both Mac and Windows OS.
