Manufacturer's Description from FLUX

The Solera v3 dynamic processor combines the power of a compressor, expander, de-compressor and de-expander, all four available direct through the user interface, processing in parallel.
 
To provide the best means for the analysis of the material, a side chain section featuring a three-band equalizer to generate frequency sensitive processing, as well as input options for an external side-chain signal, is provided.
 
In order to further enhance the workflow, three release modes are presented; manual, auto, and advanced (with minimum and maximum release values fully adjustable), as well as an auto delay function allowing for zero attack times by introducing a delay line in the processed signal.
 
The user interface in Solera v3 is designed for simplicity. In addition to the dynamic processing section a vast range of functions are provided to simplify the workflow and to facilitate the achievement of exceptional results. Some of the key functions are:
  • Generous -/+ 48 dB input/output gain range
  • Phase invert of the processed signal
  • Dry/wet control offering true parallel dynamics processing
  • Discrete peak-limiter rounding peaks off in a smooth and musically fashion
  • True bypass control routing the incoming signal direct to the output for a smooth transition between clean and processed signal
  • Morphing slider for seamless transition between two explicit full parameter-sets

Solera v3 is unique in its kind as it offers two different methods to analyze the signal-processing base. Either by using a straightforward detection process that generates an RMS detection value based on the signal level, the foundation of dynamic processing. Or by using a more complex detection algorithm that generates a dynamic detection value based entirely on the signal's dynamic complexity and not on traditional peak or RMS detection schemes, generating a dynamic value instead of relying on the signal level alone.

Solera v3 presents two parameters that are kind of unique to dynamic processing, Dynamics Ratio and Level Independent Detection (L.I.D), using the dynamic range content of the signal and not just the signal levels as standard processors do. 

Dynamics Ratio is controlling the amount of auto-ratio determined by the signal dynamics and the manual ratio setting.

Level Independent Detection (L.I.D) controls the amount of auto-threshold determined by the signal dynamics and the manual threshold value. A Maximum mode can be engaged on the L.I.D control, allowing for processing that accounts for the maximum values of both the standard and the L.I.D detection schemes. 

As all Flux:: processors Solera v3 provide up to eight channels of simultaneous processing for multichannel/surround operations. 

 

Signal Processing Features

  • Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.
  • Phase invert of the processed signal.
  • Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original "peak" into the processed signal.
  • Clipper, a discrete peak limiter at the very last stage of the processing chain rounding off the peaks smooth and musically.
  • Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal.

 

Preset and Parameter Handling

To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider", can be saved.

The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.

FLUX Pro Audio and Picture Development

About Manufacturer

Flux:: sound and picture development is a French company involved in pro audio and picture development. We're a new player in the plug-in business. Why founding a new company into this over-crowded domain? We, Flux:: people, believe there is always a place for excellence. Our design is focused on the human element. Senses are bridges between reality and consciousness, between the real world and the imaginary one. We have chosen the best for ears and eyes to free your creativity. We are also aware of the productions short time demand, that's why, every Flux:: plug-in feature a morphing slider between presets that allows users an ultra-fast operation even for plug-ins including many parameters. We haven't chosen between simplicity and sophistication. We think, you need both.
