VST Wrapper and Virtual Instrument Host
The P&M Chainer is a great new way to use your P&M Plug-ins and other VST software inside of your DAW.
The P&M Chainer is a "FREE" plugin that natively hosts ALL V.I.P. series plug-ins and can therefore be used to "chain" up to 32 P&M effects within a patch. But once AUTHORISED, the P&M Chainer acts as a host application that can also load and "Chain" any VST effects and/or VSTi virtual instruments.
Users can therefore use the Chainer to save great effect presets or any VSTi virtual instrument patches that can be recalled from any DAW at anytime needed.
For example, let's say you are a guitarist and want to save typical sound patches. The Chainer enables you to load up to 32 effects in series or parallel. So you may want to load and save a compressor, an EQ, an Amp sim, a delay, a reverb, a chorus, etc, and save the whole thing within a patch that can be loaded in other sessions or even other DAWs. The same concept can be applied to vocal patches, drum patches, or any other typical effect chains that you want to recall in future sessions. A time saver !
Drag and Drop functionalities enables users to conveniently change the order of the effects and/or virtual instruments they load within the Chainer. A mixer section enables users to solo, mute and control the level, Mix and Pan of each effects or instruments loaded in the chainer. The chainer also provides convenient Spectrum, 1/3 Octave Graphic EQ, Phase and audio Waveform visualisation to control the audio signals processed within the Chainer...
The chainer natively contains all of the 50 P&M V.I.P. Series plug-ins making it easy to save/load chained presets of your favourite P&M Plug-ins. The Chainer is FREE for all REGISTERED P&M Plug-in owners. Therefore, the Chainer will automatically detect any authorised P&M plug-ins, ready to use. They can be chained in series or parallel to save/load presets that can be used in other sessions or even other DAWs.
When AUTHORISED, the Chainer works as a VST Wrapper utility that can load and "Chain" any VST effects or VSTi virtual instruments. The Chainer loads as a plug-in within all major recording host applications including Pro Tools and can open up many creative sound layering and effects chaining options.
The Chainer was also made with Pro Tools users in mind, as it includes AAX 64bit format plug-in versions that allow you to wrap any VST instruments or effects inside of Pro Tools.
In addition to being a versatile audio effect rack, the P&M Chainer plug-in also doubles as virtual instrument host that can be inserted on any MIDI /Instrument track. With P&M Chainer, you can merge all of the best production tools in one easy to use plug-in.
A standalone version is available. It enables users to conveniently chain effects or synth patches for live performances.
