BTE Audio releases AEQ2 American Console Equalizer Algorithm
BTE Audio has released AEQ2, American Console Equalizer Algorithm, a high performance digital equalization algorithm that simulates the sound and feel of the world-renowned American Mixing Consoles of the late 1960s.
With their symmetrical curves and smooth proportional Q characteristics, the secret ingredient of the legendary LA sound is the discrete channel equalizer modules designed in the late 1960s. The AEQ2 Algorithm accurately and efficiently simulates the latest version of these modules in the digital domain with its meticulously designed topology.
AEQ2 key features
- Extremely High Processing Efficiency.
- Supports sampling frequencies up to 384 kHz.
- Clickless parameter update.
- Proprietary topology which is optimized for low latency, low noise and high dynamic range.
- Supports both 32 bit (single precision) and 64 bit (double precision) floating-point processing.
- Built-in reference-quality upsampling algorithm which can be enabled at sampling frequencies 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz to achieve bell shape symmetry at high frequencies.
- Clearly and concisely implemented in pure C++: portable to any platform that is supported by a C++ compiler.
Although the AEQ2 algorithm is available in a VST plug-in, it is not targeted towards end-users. It will enable third-parties to incorporate the highly revered American EQ sound into their products.
