Cytomic The Glue Dynamics Processor 1.5.1 [Mac & PC]
Cytomic The Glue is a high-quality model, the emulation of which is based on a hybrid of the bus compressors of the series SSL 4000 E and G, but with the addition of some additional functions. It uses the same high-quality algorithms that are used in the original schemes but optimized for real-time use. The plugin is fast and easy to use and has an uncluttered interface.
Additional features include a superfast attack time of 0.01 ms and a Range knob that slows down the compression to create incredibly natural attacks and limits the maximum compression level. Also included is support for the sidechain and a configurable sidechain high-pass filter.
For computers connected to the Internet, you can authorize directly via the plugin. . For other computers, you can download an authorization file from your cytomic the glue-download mac account once you have entered a computer ID. Each license automatically receives three authorizations per year. However, it’s easy to request an additional one if you need more. Just inform the support of the circumstances and we will help you.
Once a computer is authorized, it can no longer be safely authorized. For this reason, three authorizations are granted per year and per license, in cytomic the glue mac. The term “analog modeling” is quite broad. Everything can be called a model for something, no matter how serious the model is. You can say that a straight line models a circle under certain conditions, but if you really wanted a circle and had a straight line, you wouldn’t be happy! So we don’t hold it against you if you think the analog modeling plugins are a lot of BS, because some of the things you tried were likely.
Cytomic the glue-download mac models circuits by maintaining the position and connection of all the critical components they contain. We use the same methods as in circuit simulators, but we are optimized for fast operation. The equations of the continuous circuit are discretized using modified nodal analysis (MNA), then solved to use the iterations of Quasi-Newton-Raphson to converge towards a solution. Equivalent circuits from groups of linear components are precomputed to save the processor, along with a number of other optimizations so that the model can run hundreds of thousands of times per second. A normal circuit simulator may take 5 minutes or more to process a second of audio. Our plugins do this in a fraction of a second, otherwise, your CPU will be!

Overview of Cytomic The Glue Latest:
The Glue Vst is based on the highly acclaimed SSL bus compressor. Schematics from the SSL E‑series bus compressor have been used to build the digital model, but instead of modeling the non‑linearity of the VCAs, a ‘perfect’ VCA has been modeled, which makes The Glue Mac sound more like the modern SSL XLogic G‑series compressor. During the process of creation, an XLogic hardware unit was used to compare and tweak the performance of the plug‑in. The two pretty much share the same settings except that there are additional attack and release settings in the plug‑in, along with a high‑pass sidechain filter, Dry/Wet control, and compression Range control.
The classic three‑step ratio knob is positioned in the middle of the interface, and at its 2:1 setting, a relatively subtle soft‑knee compression is applied. At 4:1, the compression becomes more obvious, and at 10:1, The Glue is basically a peak limiter. The attack settings range from 0.01 to 30 milliseconds (the fastest setting is not present in the original hardware). As for the release settings, they range from 0.1 to 1.2 seconds, with the classic auto‑release at the clockwise extreme. Threshold and make‑up gain is represented by two knobs but, more interestingly, there is a compression range knob, which limits the maximum amount of compression applied, regardless of the other settings.
The side‑chain EQ is a gentle 6dB/octave filter with a cutoff frequency that can be set from zero to 2000Hz, and it can be applied to the internal signal or an external side‑chain signal. When you press the external side‑chain button, the plug‑in reports one or two extra inputs — depending on whether it is set up for mono or stereo processing — making it possible to use any signal to control the compressor. Unfortunately, the VST3 standard is not yet supported, so the success of setting up an external side‑chain very much depends on the DAW host and its ability to route audio in a flexible way. To catch overshooting transient peaks, there is a peak clipper available with zero attacks and release time, and with a fixed infinite ratio and medium knee. It’s basically a fixed waveshaper that is linear up to ‑2dB, has a smooth curve to ‑0.5dB, and is then horizontal. The topmost compression meter displays the depth of compression in an RMS-level fashion, and clicking the display will show the amount of peak compression too.
Why Can Use Cytomic The Glue Download:
During the test period, I used The Glue on a bunch of different instruments and group channels, with great success. One of my mixing projects had four different bass guitar tracks mixed into one mono group channel, and The Glue helped me to even out the levels of the different bass tones without introducing any compression artifacts. On the same project, I was able to tighten up the lead dubs and choirs without losing any punch, which was a nice surprise. Normally I would resort to softer limiting to even things out, but that requires great care and tweaking in order to avoid losing some impact. The Glue made it easy because of its ability to handle both transients and prolonged energy bursts with transparency and clarity. Just a tad of drum bus compression made the drums sit together without losing the thud of the kick or the smack of the snare, and I was able to mix the cymbals and hi‑hat louder in the mix without them taking over the show. Sometimes I just needed a gentle touch of compression, and the Range control made it possible by limiting the compression to a few decibels.
Using the Mix control, it’s possible to blend the uncompressed and compressed signals, thus producing parallel compression — a very effective way of adding energy without squashing the transients. I find it useful on drums and acoustic guitars when they need some extra energy, but it’s actually useful on most instruments: it’s just a matter of finding the right compression and balance between the compressed and uncompressed sounds.
During the test period, my only complaint was that browsing and loading of presets could be made better because when the preset screen was open, the whole DAW interface locked up.

- The glue is based on the popular SSL bus compressor. The SSL E bus bus compressor circuit diagrams were used to create the digital model. However, instead of modeling the non-linearity of the VCAs, a “perfect” VCA was modeled, which makes
- The Cytomic The Glue look like the modern XLogic SSL compressor of the G series. An XLogic hardware unit was used during the construction process to compare and optimize the performance of the plug-in. Both have almost the same settings, except that the plug-in includes additional attack and release settings,
- as well as a high-pass side chain filter, wet / dry control, and compression range control .
The classic three-step report button is in the middle of the user interface,
- and its 2: 1 setting uses relatively subtle soft knee compression.
- At 4: 1, compression becomes more evident, and at 10: 1, The Glue is essentially a peak limiter. Attack settings range from 0.01 to 30 milliseconds (the fastest setting is not available in the original hardware).
- The release parameters vary from 0.1 to 1.2 seconds, the classic automatic release being extreme clockwise.
- In comparison, I found them quite similar at first, but The Glue was not authentic and the transients didn’t sound so good.
- Andrew noted that no oversampling was used during processing and therefore a low level aliasing existed which gave the transients a slight hardness and spread out the finer details of the source. So I asked if he could create an oversampled version of the plug-in,
- and Cytomic The Glue license key arrived in the mail a few days later. When I tried it, I found that it looked a lot like hardware audio clips, at the expense of increased CPU usage and around 2 ms latency.
- To analyze in more detail the advantages of using oversampling when applying dynamic processing, I did a quick shooting session between the two versions of The Glue.
- In comparison, the oversampled processing maintained better stereo width, more transients, and a slightly greater depth in the middle.
- I must emphasize that the differences were small and for some sources, I preferred a non-oversampled treatment because of the color of the transients.
- Oversampling will be available as an option in a future update of The Glue, and if you read this, it will likely be implemented.
- The first test was a drum loop already heavily processed with a lot of low end. I used my army of SSL clones to break them down even more in a 10: 1 ratio with an attack of 3 ms and release times of 0.1 s. The threshold has been set so that the counter displays compression of approximately 15 dB. Although the differences are minimal, the oversampled glue seemed a bit more lively than the non-oversampled one.
- The UAD plug-in had a nice release curve that the compression pump did with the drums, and it added mid-range, but at the same time, the hi-hats were a bit removed.
- The Cytomic The Glue Waves plug-in seemed flat and grainy compared to the other plug-ins and had no definition.
- The BC1 showed the best stereo width and definition and sounded a little softer than The Glue, while the GSSL had its own raw pumping sound which was excellent for effect compression.
