Help me name this plugin

I love this game, so I’m playing again. I hate trying to come up with names for plugins, so I’m putting the burden on you to help me.

How to Play

Just leave a comment on this page with your name suggestions. You can leave as many comments as you like, and you can submit as many names in a single comment as you like. I will pick a name, and whoever suggested the name gets a free copy when the plugin is released.

Contest is over. The name will be “Big Clipper.”

Also, there will be a light version called “Little Clipper.”

Rules

  1. You can have conversations through replies, but please have conversations through replies to existing comments only. Leave root level comments for name submissions only. We’ll remove any conversational posts that aren’t replies. It’s not that we don’t like you, it’s just that we need to keep in clean.
  2. Do not edit your posts. If you messed up and need to change a submission, just make a new post. In the case where multiple people suggest a name, I will be choosing the first to submit the name. If you edit your post, you will lose the tie breaker.

About the Plugin

Story time. Over the past few years, I’ve found myself reaching for clipping plugins more than I expected I would. When used correctly, they can have a huge effect on the overall cohesiveness of your mix, they make compressors sound better downstream and make reverbs sound more natural, especially on percussion. But there are a couple things about clippers have always bothered me:

  1. They get nasty when you push them too hard, and it’s really easy to push them too hard.
  2. Low frequencies tend to dominate the distortion

Clippy Wippy solves these two issues with a couple of super handy features. Instead of being just a clipper, Clippy Wippy is sort of a hybrid clipper/limiter.  It lets you dial in the clipping and limiting flavors in just the right way to match your content.

We added a couple of features that take this plugin beyond just simple clipping too. Aside from the standard controls (Input Gain, Ceiling, Hard/Soft clipping, mix, etc.) we added a few features that are not so standard that really makes turns this thing from a one trick pony to a super handy tone shaping toolbox.

  • Stereo, Mid/Side, Mid Only, Side Only operation – When using this on a bus, I have found that putting it in Mid/Side mode almost always gives it a more natural sound, causing it to apply distortion in a way that our brains just like it more.
  • Blend Control – Blending the clipper and the compressor in just the right way gives you all sorts of options for dialing in your sound. From heavy distortion to super smooth limiting and everything in between. Set it up in blend mode or multiband mode without making it hard to dial in.
  • Frequency Sensitivity – This section really is gold. It lets you say “You know what? I want to drive this clipper hard, but I don’t want to distort the low end so much.” Just turn down the low end sensitivity, and it’s done. Or maybe you want to distort the midrange a bit more. Just give it a boost in the mids.
