If you're having trouble with the stuffit files, be sure you have a current version of stuffit expander. The chorus and phaser work best as insert effects. The delay works best as a send effect. Chorusifier The current version of the Chorusifier is 1.09. This version is optimized for the G4/Altivec vector processor. The chorus includes presets for chorus, leslie, flanger, doubler, and sitar. Check these out by selecting programs 1 through 5. Note that the feedback setting may be set to negative or positive feedback. The center position has no feedback. All the way to the left is maximum negative feedback, and all the way to the righ is maximum positive feedback. Phaserifier The Phaserifier is a phase shifter effect. Delayifier The Delayifier is a 4-tap delay and includes tape rolloff and tape flutter for vintage-type effects. It also includes a ducking feature which suppresses the delay while there is input signal, thus permitting you to use lush delays without cluttering up your sound too much. The current version of the Delayifier is 2.1. Spectrafier Spectrafier is a real time analyzer. Use it as a channel insert or as a master effect to show the levels of various frequency bands. This can be used with an equalizer to adjust a mix. Click on a band in the display to hear just that band. This can be useful when trying to determine what equalizer setting can be used to fix a problem. Press the "All" button to return to monitoring the input sound when you are done with band monitoring. The slider adjusts the gain of the display. The current version of the Spectrafier is 2.02. Excitifier Excitifier is a harmonic exciter. Use it as an insert effect. Current version: 1.06. Excitifier details: An exciter works by adding upper harmonics. These are harmonics that are often lost in a mix, even though the individual tracks sound fine, so the exciter can be used to "un-muddy" a mix. This often works better than an eq to remedy this problem since if you simply boost high frequencies as an eq does, you can end up with excessive noise. The harmonics are added by taking selected high frequency ranges of the input and adding a distinctive type of distortion. The trick is that the distortion must be related to the input signal so that the harmonics sound like they belong. A pleasant side effect of this process is that the stereo image of the mix appears to widen. In addition, this exciter includes a low frequency boost control. The result is that you can use this plugin as a quick way to achieve a popular type of eq mix. You can use the Excitifier on individual tracks to add sparkle, but it generally works best on mixes to add clarity. In either case use it as an insert effect in Cubase. One note of caution: it's always a good idea to frequently listen to a reference track (a track you feel is well mixed) during a mixing session. This is especially true when using an exciter since ear fatigue can lead you to overuse it. Parameters: Depth: this controls the level at which distortion is added. Warmth: adds a tube-like warmth to the distortion. Amount: gain control for the distortion. Range: controls the high frequency range to which the distortion is applied. LowBoost: The amount of low frequency boost to add. Mix: controls dry/wet mix. Low Freq: controls the center frequency of the lows controlled by the Low Boost. LowBW: controls the bandwidth of the low freqency range. OddHarm: adds odd harmonics, generally a harsher sound.
