Stillwell Audio vibeEQ

Stillwell Audio has released version 1.04 of vibeEQ, a character equalizer VST plug-in for Windows PC.

From the product page:

This is one of those mythical plugins that makes things sound better just by plugging it in. Really. Unlike 1973, which is a very pristine EQ plugin (but a VERY good EQ, all the same), Vibe-EQ is all about color. The more boost or cut you dial in, the more color and funk you get. This may not be your go-to EQ every time, but you’ll wind up using it more often than you’d expect.

vibeEQ costs $39 USD. A REAPER-only, non-commercial use license is available for $25 USD.

Visit Stillwell Audio for more information, and a link to download an evaluation version of vibeEQ.

    I’ve been meaning to try these Stillwell plug-ins, they seem quite interesting indeed. Will try to post some demos of vibeEQ later today.

    Quick loop with vibeEQ on the mix (2 measures dry, 2 measures with EQ on), the coloration comes out this way but you best try it on individual sounds.
    I only cut everything to -6dB (110Hz, 820Hz, 3.2KHz) and boosted gain with 6dB. When using boost gain on the frequencies you get more color, but also more distortion I guess.
    vibeEQ loop (1.83MB 24-bit .wav).

    (The drum sounds are from Goldbaby’s MPC60 Vol.1, and the lead sound is TB4005).

    thanks Ronnie, sounds interesting but dirty :) lot’s of phasing, but that can be cool of course.

    Here’s another one, 2 parts guitar mixed (4 bars dry, 4 bars vibeEQ).

    vibeEQ on guitar (3.97MB 24-bit .wav)

    This time I boosted everything and lowered the gain 8.5 dB.
    Low shelf: 60Hz, 20.0dB
    Mid 1: 180Hz, 8.5dB
    Mid 2: 6Khz, 6.0dB
    High shelf: 11.9dB

    Sounds pretty nice to me.

    Note: you can only set the frequencies to the amounts you see on the GUI, it snaps to them if you try to finetune.
