FabFilter releases Pro-Q 2 equalizer plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

FabFilter has released Pro-Q 2, an updated version of its equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2
New features — such as Full Screen mode, unique Natural Phase processing, Auto Gain, Spectrum Grab, Gain-Q interaction, and slope support for all filter types — make Pro-Q 2 a cut above its predecessor in every way, while staying true to the original vision of combining high sound quality with unsurpassed interface workflow.

Completely redesigned EQ engine

For Pro-Q 2, FabFilter has completely redesigned the internal filter engine from the ground up — not only improving the existing Zero Latency and Linear Phase processing modes, but also introducing a unique Natural Phase mode. Besides perfectly matching the magnitude response of analog EQ’ing, Natural Phase also closely matches the analog phase response, without introducing noticeable pre-ring or a long latency. Last but not least, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is more than twice as CPU-efficient as its predecessor.

Universal filter slope support

Very steep filter slopes of up to 96 dB/octave are now available, and, uniquely, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 lets users change the slope of any filter type — not just the usual Low/High Cut filters. This makes it possible to create super-narrow bell filters, very steep or gently sloping shelves, and more. In addition to the existing Bell, Low/High Shelf, Low/High Cut, and Notch filters, Pro-Q 2 also features new Band-Pass and Tilt Shelf filter types.

More interface innovations

Furthermore, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is boosted by an abundance of user interface innovations. Spectrum Grab enables users to directly adjust peaks in the real-time spectrum analyzer display. Pro-Q 2 offers flexible interface resizing, in addition to a Full Screen mode that makes it easier than ever to do ultra-precise adjustments. EQ Match lets users match the spectrum of another track in just a few seconds. All this power is neatly integrated into a gorgeous, uncluttered interface that lets users focus freely on music and workflow.

Original and trailblazing

Of course, Pro-Q 2 features everything that was great about the original Pro-Q — up to 24 EQ bands, innovative interface with unsurpassed workflow and multi-band selection, per-channel EQ’ing in L/R or M/S mode, real-time spectrum analyzer, intelligent solo mode, double-click text entry, stereo/mono plug-ins, Pro Tools hardware surface support — as well as all the trailblazing FabFilter bells and whistles that users have come to expect and love — perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, GPU-powered graphics acceleration, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample-accurate automation, advanced optimization, and more.

New in Pro-Q 2

  • Different interface sizes and additional Full Screen mode.
  • Operates in zero latency mode, linear phase mode with adjustable latency or the unique Natural Phase mode.
  • Spectrum Grab: just grab and adjust a peak in the real-time spectrum analyzer right away!.
  • Filter shapes: Bell, Notch, High/Low Shelf, High/Low Cut, Band Pass, Tilt Shelf.
  • Universal filter slope support for all filter types, up to 96 dB/oct.
  • EQ Match feature to automatically match the spectrum of another track via the side-chain input.
  • Phase Invert option to change polarity.
  • Highly improved CPU optimization: Pro-Q 2 uses less memory and is more than twice as efficient as its predecessor!.
  • Optional Gain-Q interaction.
  • Auto Gain and Gain Scale.
  • Built-in spectrum analyzer with Pre-EQ, Post-EQ and SC modes, adjustable range, speed, resolution, tilt and freeze.
  • Optional piano roll display to quantize EQ frequencies to musical notes.
  • Large output level meter with peak level readout.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for 149 EUR/$199 USD/£124 GBP. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-Q 2 and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. Existing FabFilter customers can purchase or upgrade to Pro-Q 2 with a discount from their online user accounts.

Zynaptiq releases UNCHIRP Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Zynaptiq has announced the release of UNCHIRP, a codec artifact removal and transient retrieval effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Zynaptiq UNCHIRP

UNCHIRP is a plug-in for removing the most obnoxious artifacts associated with lossy audio encoding and other FFT based processes, such as spectral de-noising.

Reduce musical noise, suppress high frequency chirping (also known as underwater sound, warbling or the tweeties), fix transient smearing, and restore lost high frequencies – UNCHIRP does it all in one go.

If you need to salvage poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a low bit rate uplink, material that has been de-noised too strongly, or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices – or if you simply want to add contour and vibrance to already great sounding recordings – UNCHIRP is your (only) friend.

UNCHIRP features

  • Suppression of high frequency “chirping” artifacts.
  • Reduction of “musical noise” artifacts.
  • Transient Synthesis to augment or replace smeared, over-limited or otherwise compromised transients.
  • Psycho-Acoustically optimized Treble Boost circuit with Enhance and Excite modes.
  • Break-Point Curve Editor based frequency-dependent processing.
  • Side-only algorithm mode for working with joint-stereo encoded material.
  • HD algorithm mode for increased quality processing with higher CPU load (off-line processing recommended).
  • SYNC parameter allows processing to be synchronized to signal transients for increasing clarity.
  • Output limiter for unsupervised use in batch processing applications.
  • Highly time-efficient workflow and UI.

UNCHIRP for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for $399 USD / 369 EUR (incl. VAT in EU).

Nugen Audio releases SEQ-S equalizer plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Nugen Audio has announced the release of SEQ-S, a high-fidelity, linear-phase equalizer ideal for music production and mastering as well as film and post-production applications.

Nugen Audio SEQ-S

With support for mono, stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 surround, SEQ-S provides sonic sculpting and precision EQ matching including stereo mid-side operation, automated spectrum analysis, curve smoothing, and a direct-draw spline interface for corrective applications.

“With SEQ-S, we’re providing the industry’s most advanced linear-phase spline-match EQ — enabling sound professionals to massage and correct any audio with incredible resolution and precision that is far beyond what’s possible with a traditional parametric interface,” said Jon Schorah, creative director, NUGEN Audio. “Unlike many digital EQs, SEQ-S features a phase profile that is linear across the frequency spectrum, which results in natural-sounding EQ changes and produces minimal phase artifacts. SEQ-S also includes a unique resolution setting that can be used with high precision in the low frequencies, allowing for highly transparent adjustments without muddying the mix.”

Through SEQ-S’s direct-draw interface and detailed spectrum analysis, users can quickly identify and specifically fine-tune their audio with ease. When coupled with EQ matching via sonic fingerprinting, the solution offers powerful creative possibilities for audio professionals. For instance, they can match one recording to another to capture the “flavor” of a piece of source audio and then transfer it to the current project — a technique that can be used on individual tracks to unify different takes and microphone positions.

In addition, SEQ-S’s EQ invert button provides a minimally invasive technique for creating space in a complex mix, a task that is typically too cumbersome with a traditional EQ. In a typical music project, by “sampling” the vocal and then using the EQ invert button to apply the inverted curve to the backing, users can gently create specific space without unnecessarily damaging the original tonality of the underlying audio.

SEQ-S for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for MSRP $249 USD.
