Let's play with plugin analysis tool Plugindoctor!
Plugindoctor is software for analyzing audio plugins. It runs as a standalone application, itself a VST/AU host that loads instrumented plugins. (If AAX users also have the VST version of the same product installed, they can measure it with Plugindoctor and use the knowledge gained.)
Plug-ins and effects used in music production can of course be handled by ear and sensibility alone. However, you may be wondering what the plugin actually does. Especially among modeling plug-ins, there are many that distort the sound (for better or worse) just by passing the signal through, some that cut the low end or high end with a filter, and some that involve other changes. When you thought that the sound improved when you plug it into the master bus, in reality, the output was only increased by 2dB with the default setting. Using Plugindctor's various measurement functions, these characteristics become apparent at a glance.
Plugindoctor's regular selling price isn't too high either. By investing in Plugindoctor instead of buying new effects and getting a better inside look at the plugins you already own, you may discover new uses for them.
In this book, I will introduce examples of how to use Plugindoctor and what I learned by actually measuring the plug-ins I own.
