Bootsy announces NastyXTC

Bootsy has announced NastyXTC, an Xciting Transient Controller plug-in for Windows.

NastyXTC features four separate transient controllers plus an additional ‘warmth’ tape like processor and is aimed to enhance the sonic perception of any kind of audio material without that much digital artifacts known from some traditional exciters or enhancers.

Bootsy NastyXTC

NastyXTC features

  • Four transient controllers, basically frequency and transient controlled EQ’s where just the actual dialed in frequency gets saturated depending on the transient information of the actual audio content. The EQ’s audio content (and nothing else) gets saturated but just depending on the transient information of the incoming audio.
  • Sophisticated M/S processing per band allows for stereo field processing and the overall stereo imaging can be controlled by increasing the side signal processing of the audio content which then occurs frequency dependent.
  • ‘Warmth’ processor, which is basically an ultra-fast tape style high frequency compressor. The HF level loss is compensated by “filling in” some K2 harmonic audio content. The result is a very subtle HF smoothing which is able to polish some uneven artifacts such as too much pronounced hihats or sibilant vocals.
  • Works as an unobtrusive de-esser easily as well.
  • Capable of finishing uneven mixes as well as polishing individual recordings/tracks in any mixing situation.

NastyXTC will be available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC in Q2/2009.

Bootsy TesslaPRO teaser

Bootsy has revealed more information on TesslaPRO, a signal saturation modeling audio processor VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

The TesslaPRO audio processor is aimed to take the critically acclaimed TesslaSE signal saturator on to the next level.

Changes in TesslaPRO

  • The amount of untouched transient information can be dialed in variable. This way one is able to obtain full control on where signal saturation is going to happen and how such effects appear into a mix sonic wise.
  • Core algorithm re-written in assembler, further optimized and runs now 4 times oversampled.
  • DRIVE amount is now output level compensated and in addition there is more precise and detailed control on the reworked transformer style bass distortion.
  • Completely redesigned user interface.
  • Some bugfixes, e.g. the slow loading time issue which occured in some system configurations.

TesslaPRO will be available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC, in Q2/2009.

Bootsy has announced the TesslaPRO, an audio processor which brings the critically acclaimed TesslaSE signal saturator on to the next level.

Beside the implementation of some popular feature requests TesslaPRO will feature some really exciting new and unique approach on signal saturation modeling.

More details will be unveiled during April on varietyofsound.wordpress.com and the release is targeted to Q2/2009.

Bootsy epicVerb v1.0

Bootsy has released version 1.0.1 of epicVerb, a freeware digital reverberation simulator VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

The 1.0.1 maintenance release for epicVerb is out now. It covers a couple of bugfixes, improvements and is now fully SSE compatible (running on older SSE1 machines now too).

Changes in epicVerb v1.0.1

  • bugfix: grainyness in the modulation algorithm
  • bugfix: some knobs disappeared under certain circumstances
  • bugfix: some GUI handling jitters due to overlapping mouse regions
  • change: extended focus of VOLUME knob to LED display below
  • bugfix: zipping noises on DRY/WET and VOLUME knob
  • change: some user presets added
  • change: MOD amount re-calibrated
  • bugfix: DC offset issues
  • bugfix: proper SSE1 support (older AMD Athlon systems support)
  • change: improved memory management (less memory consumption, faster loading)
  • change: updated manual

Beside the smoother modulation this is soundwise identical and the update should be safe to install in existing projects. The reverb tail at larger settings appears slightly darker due to improved delay line algorithms but this is really subtle.

Boosty 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.
