Free DSP plug-ins for Breakaway Broadcast, Breakaway Live, and other software with Winamp plug-in support.
Bass! Is there ever enough of it? We didn't think so either. This brand new innovative bass enhancer adds an unthinkable thud / slam to your music, and gives you a very round, full bass, previously unattainable. It is not an equalizer. It does not boost the bass, and it is not a subharmonic syntherizer, but rather it intelligently restructures and realigns the components of the bass waveform for maximum impact.
ITU BS.1770 loudness-based automatic L/R level balancer! Automatically Eliminates L/R channel balance errors. Adjustable speed and adjustment range.
Phase Rotation is a commonly used techique in audio processing -- but there are many different ways to do it.
Purposefully, Phase Rotation is usually done to remove asymmetry in voices, or to spread out the peaks of harmonic-rich instruments such as saxophone, so that they can better survive the final peak control stage. It can also be used to add slam / thud.
Unintentionally, Phase Rotation happens in non-phase-linear crossovers in audio processors -- especially those with overly sharp filters, or overly many bands (or both). Nonetheless, the impulse response (=phase response) of any processor, is part of the "sound" of the processor.
Breakaway Broadcast contains a Phase Scrambler -- different from traditional Phase Rotators in that it rotates phase alternately forward and backwards for different frequencies. This enables it to do an effective job with minimal audible impact. Nevertheless, some people may want to use a traditional Phase Rotator as an effect. So, here are a few!
(a' la Leif)
A traditional phase rotator, optimized to improve both voices, saxophones and sharp synth leads, with minimal sonic degradation.
A phase rotator designed to emulate the "Slam" and "Impact" of a very popular brand of Broadcast Processors.
It also recreates the characteristic "Clunk" these processors make on snare drums, which some people love.
Made to model the extreme phase-nonlinearity of a particular 31-band audio processor. It (thankfully) does not emulate the distortion of this processor, but does emulate the extremely long, poppy transient sound of that particular processor. Phase Tornado brings the "unique" sound of that processor to any processor!

Attenuation / Gain
Any kind of processing tends to add peaks, and can thus cause plug-in chain clipping. Breakaway warns you of this clipping by red flashing meters. This package contains 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6dB attenuators. Place one first in the plug-in chain to avoid clipping down the line.
If you're feeding a professional sound card from a consumer source, levels may be too low. This package contains plug-ins that apply 3 and 6dB of gain. We do not recommend more than 9dB of total gain, as this may raise the noise floor excessively.
LiveLink DSP for Breakaway Broadcast
Allows using Breakaway Broadcast with a DSP plug-in host (such as SpacialAudio SAM Broadcaster), without using Breakaway Pipelines. Useful when running a web stream from a Windows 2003 server, to circumvent the Microsoft RDP Audio Driver. Supports a steady stream of audio only -- does not work properly from Winamp.
LiveLink DSP for Breakaway Live
Allows using Breakaway Live with a DSP plug-in host (such as SpacialAudio SAM Broadcaster), without using Breakaway Pipelines. Useful when running a web stream from a Windows 2003 server, to circumvent the Microsoft RDP Audio Driver. Supports a steady stream of audio only -- does not work properly from Winamp.
