Bootsy releases BootEQmkII
Bootsy has released BootEQmkII, a freeware equalizer/pre-amp simulator VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
BootEQ mkII is basically the further improved and reworked successor of the already known and popular musical mixing EQ.
Beside some enhancements in the EQ department BootEQ mkII features a detailed modelled pre-amp section including finest transformer and tube style saturation emulation and audio coloring capabilities.
Changes in BootEQ mkII
- New EQ improvements are affecting the LF frequency range where now more control is given due to selectable frequencies and a switchable low-cut or peak mode. All other filters and curves remain unchanged. Details here.
- New modelled pre-amp simulator section offers some detailed control on non-linear behaviour such as saturation (volume compensated) and sonic color alterings of the audio signal.
- The soundengine was developed around a further improved and reworked TesslaSE transformer algorithm, runs now in 4x oversampling mode and also contains massive SSE and assembler optimizations.
- Supported sampling rates are 44.1 and 48kHz.
BootEQ mkII is available now as a VST effect plug-in for Windows (SSE compatible) PC. Check here for the latest downloads.
