Sweet V. 3.0 “Optimized” plug-in has been completely re-worked from the ground up to be compatible with AAX and Pro Tools 11. The new BBE Sound bundle has also been fully tested on the latest operating systems including Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) and Windows 8. It includes Sonic Maximizer, Harmonic Maximizer, Loudness Maximizer, and the new Mach 3 Bass mode.
The BBE Sonic Sweet “Optimized” is a complete rewrite of the plug-ins included in the original “Sonic Sweet” plug-ins bundle. Designed to make your mixes clearer and louder like its forerunner, it adds a new fourth plug-in to the collection, the Mach 3 Bass. At the heart of the bundle there is still the software version of BBE Sound’s famous Sonic Maximiser hardware range, which is an emulation of its exclusive processing technologies that has set the benchmark for sound enhancement.
BBE Sound’s Sonic Sweet “Optimized” will add clarity to the top end and fatness to the bottom, just like its famous hardware processors do without the “fizz” or digital “sizzle” common to most other sonic enhancers. Refinements in the new version extend to a new optimised GUI and improved controls for fine-tuning sound.
A slight nuisance is the fact that, because Sonic Sweet “Optimized” was completely rebuilt. It is NOT compatible with previous versions of BBE Sonic Sweet Plug-ins. Any sessions with a previous version of Sonic Sweet loaded into it must continue to use the old versions of the plug-ins.
The new version runs on any Windows 7 & 8 PC or Apple Mac with Mac OS 10.6 and above (including 10.10 Yosemite) and supports VST, AU, RTAS and AAX Native in 32 e 64-bit. Each licence enables authorization of up to five computers.
BBE Sound also announced it has partnered with DontCrack.com to offer a special introductory price of $69 instead of the regular $149. Previous Sonic Sweet owners can upgrade to the new Sonic Sweet V. 3.0 with the new “Mach 3 Bass” for only $29. The promo is available only during July 2014.
