Overview

From subtle warmth to extreme drive and compression, PUNISH injects character and edge into any mix or instrument track. It’s the same PUNISH effect that you know and love, as featured in Heavyocity’s award-winning line of virtual instruments, now in VST/AU/AAX plug-in format. Modeled after Heavyocity’s custom analog signal chains, PUNISH gives you control over Compression, Saturation, Transients, EQ, and Limiting. Chain the modules together to get that signature PUNISH sound, or isolate them to experience each dynamic effect on its own. And at the heart of it all is the global PUNISH Knob. Simply set your ranges, and use the one knob to dial in the devastation.

Compression / Saturation
With three distinct compression models, the PUNISH Compressor offers a wide dynamic range, topped off with that classic analog warmth. The plugin features a smooth Class A-style Buss Compressor (Console), an aggressive, fat sound with a classic “knee” (Modern), and a warm vintage limiting amplifier-style (Classic). The PUNISH Saturation module also features three different models, all with their own unique brand of warmth, drive, and character. With a classic broadcast mic-pre (Vintage), a chunky harmonic saturation (Modern), and a fat tube saturation (Tube), the PUNISH Saturation module can add a bit of grit to a track, or drive the whole thing into overload.

Transients / EQ / Limiting
Providing control over the attack, sustain, and output gain, PUNISH’s Transient shaping module brings stronger transients back into the signal after saturating the sound. The module also features Hold control to determine length of the attack. The EQ module is basic but powerful, offering lift of the high and low frequencies. Set the EQ to Pre or Post to affect highs and lows before the Comp, Sat, and Transient...or after. To prevent clipping, PUNISH also features a Limiter at the end of the chain. Soft clip amount and release time controls are key, when that Saturation starts to get things truly hairy.

Global PUNISH Knob
At the core of the plugin is the central Punish Knob. Heavyocity has designed an intuitive way to modulate all of the parameters, quickly and easily bringing life and movement into your sounds. By simply clicking the “edit” button, and setting the halo values, the central PUNISH knob becomes a highly-dynamic tool, capable of any and every degree of PUNISHment. Start off clean and warm and go punchy -- or expand the ranges to really let ‘er rip. When your track really kicks in, a twist of that center knob is all you need.

Analog Signal Chain
Heavyocity has been using their in-house custom analog chains to mangle and manipulate sound sources for years. From epic percussion to cinematic pads and stings, their line of award-winning VI’s always get touched up by their stable of Bus Compressors, Tube Saturation, and Limiting Amplifiers. It’s part of what has made instruments like GRAVITY, Vocalise, and AEON so compelling, and now they’re placing those custom signal chains into your hands. Meticulously modeled from the best in classic and analog units, PUNISH brings together a studios-worth of gear in one dynamic new FX plugin.

Crafted Presets
To get you up and running quickly, PUNISH is stocked full of crafted presets, laid out over six categories. This is where the versatility of PUNISH really shines. From Bass to Drums to Mixing/Mastering, PUNISH has a wide range of applications. With over 90 presets arranged by instrument type, and a bonus folder of some HY staff favorites. They’re a great starting point, though an option to save your own presets is also available.
