A Consequential Update
Today we update our plug-ins to:
- Graillon v2.2
- Panagement v1.4
- Couture v1.2
Let's describe what changed in that update. Reading time: 3 min.
NEW in all Auburn Sounds plug-ins
We added support for the VST3 format.
Our plug-ins were difficult to install on Mac. You would copy the right bundle into the right plug-in folder.
Now you just click on the
-40% CPU reduction from an open UI
An open GUI now uses less CPU. The updated plug-ins also play nicer with multiple instances, by launching less threads.
ALT + click to reset parameters
All controls now accept ALT + click as a way to reset a parameter. Most also accept double-click.
Fix OBS Studio and Audio Hijack compatibility
Removed Mac 32-bit support
We do not provide 32-bit plug-ins for Mac anymore. 32-bit builds are still provided for Windows. If you do need 32-bit Mac builds, please see in the FAQ the "older downloads" page.
NEW in Graillon v2.2
Stereo support in Graillon
A popular request!
Graillon will now act as a mono or stereo effect depending on the track. In stereo mode, operation is internally dual-mono apart from the pitch detection, which has linked behaviour.
What's the consequence on CPU consumption? Well we optimized Graillon further.
- Graillon v2.2 in mono uses 25% less CPU than Graillon v2.1 in mono.
- Graillon v2.2 in stereo uses 25% more CPU than Graillon v2.1 in mono.
So you should still be able to afford many instances.
Visualize input MIDI notes
Many users don't realize Graillon can ingest MIDI input. We made it more visual with the MIDI view. The active MIDI note is displayed in green. We also display a small text on the pitch wheel when Pitch Correction is doing something.
MIDI input still need the Pitch Correction to be enabled in order to have an effect, and that's why we...
Invert Correction Amount and Inertia knob
Many users did not understand whether Pitch Correction were enabled. We swapped the "Inertia" and "Correction Amount" knob, to make that parameter more visually close to the section title. "Correction Amount" is now named "Enable".
Fixed noise burst after silence
Graillon's silence detection was broken: it would make illogical noises after inaudible input. Now fixed.
Fixed buffering bug in FLStudio
Occasionally Graillon's output would become wrong in FLStudio after tweaking buffer size. Now fixed.
NEW in Panagement v1.4
The Panagement Cheat Sheet
Like our other plug-ins, Panagement now has a Cheat Sheet.
Zooming in Panagement
A common complaint with Panagement was that Far is too Far, and small Distance values were most useful. Thus recording automation was too blunt.
To solve that, you can now zoom in Panagement using the Mouse Wheel.
Default zoom level is
x4 zoom level, you can set a source precisely inside the listener's head.
You can set from 0% to 200% the level panning within Panagement, which was previously hidden.
This just scales interaural level difference; as such it is the most mono-compatible panning mode. Useful if you disagree with the default pan tuning in Panagement!
More readable Phase Display
- Left-click on the Phase Display doubles its intensity.
- Right-click on the Phase Display disables it.
This was already available before, but with no visual feedback.
NEW in Couture v1.2
A more solid peak detection
Couture transient detection was made more systematic with respect to short events.
The difference is usually subtle, but is easiest to hear with the shortest attack times. You'll find that the gain change feels more "solid", as the peaks are processed more evenly.
If you are a Couture FULL customer you can change the oversampling in Couture, for an extra-edge:
x1oversampling can be useful to have a very dry transient shaping,
x2is the default oversampling in Couture,
x4is an intermediate which is more CPU-conscious than
x8is a bit expensive CPU-wise but makes aliasing disappear.
x8 are a bit darker and analog-sounding than other oversampling rates. This is on purpose!
This parameter is only available in the FULL Edition of Couture. The FREE Edition is always oversampled
This oversampling applies to both saturation and transient shaping.
Dry Mix knob
You can now mix Dry unprocessed input alongside with the Wet signal.
Such Dry input will not have the phase change caused by the oversampling stage and/or distortion filters: as such it can be used as a kind of "New York transient shaping".
Faster audio processing
x2 oversampling, Couture v1.2 goes 40% faster than Couture v1.1.
Fix volume spikes at startup
Couture used to have long and wild volume spikes on instantiation. Sonic outbursts will now stabilize faster at startup.

This is a backwards-compatible, free update. Unless you were using 32-bit plug-ins on macOS, your sessions should keep working as intended, and you can safely overwrite the older plug-ins with the new ones.
