By in Music Creation

Avid is again hosting a Connectivity Partner Pavilion booth # 719 opposite the Avid booth #718 at this year’s AES show in New York from Oct 30th to Nov 1st featuring 13 top Avid partners showcasing products that integrate with Pro Tools in Music and Audio Post workflows. Be sure to check out what’s new and get to connect with our partners first hand to find out how their products can take your creativity to the next level.


Audionamix will be presenting its revolutionary ADX Vocal Volume Control plug-in inside of the Avid Partner Pavilion at the 139th AES Convention in NY. Stop by to see how Avid users can separate a lead vocal or solo instrument from any mixed stem and then take control of its volume level and pan position like never before.

The Vocal Volume Control plug-in is not a traditional dynamics processor or phase-based, center channel manipulator; it is true audio source separation at its finest, all inside a simple-to-use AAX plug-in.

Mastering engineers can now make subtle volume adjustments to any lead vocal or solo instrument to highlight these elements or tuck them back into the mix as desired.

With VVC in their arsenal, re-recording mixers have unprecedented and independent control over clashing vocal elements within cues, without any external dependencies.

With +/- 9dB of gain adjustment and plenty of control over the pan position of the separated elements within your mix, you’ll find the Vocal Volume Control plug-in to be an amazing tool that is on the cutting edge of audio technology. Learn how this first-of-its-kind AAX Plug-in can do things never before possible for your music and post-production workflow.

Improvements in VVC version 2.0 debuting at AES include long-awaited Windows compatibility, a significant increase in separation speed, and an additional separation algorithm that expands the available processing combinations to provide the maximum control over your separated content.
