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.

Bootsy epicVerb v1.0

Bootsy has released version 1.0 of epicVerb, a digital reverberation simulator plug-in for Windows PC.

The “epicVerb” reverberation device aims at both: Tight small room and ambience effect simulation well suited to modern drum and vocal productions up to large “epic” halls as known from high quality outboard gear. This reverbs sound ranges from rather concrete or even edgy up to smooth, transparent and artifact free reverb tails. It is designed for maximum flexibility and usability and to take place as a true high quality stereo main reverb.

epicVerb features

  • PC / VST compatible
  • SSE and Assembler optimized sound engine
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing
  • Smooth reverb tail processing without any ringing or metallic sounding artifacts
  • Different reverb and early reflection modes for maximum flexibility

epicVerb is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

It offers different reverb time handling for high and low frequencies as well as a musical sounding EQ section containing two “BootEQ” equalizers and additional high- and lowpass filtering.

Plug-in specification

  • PC / VST compatible.
  • SSE and Assembler optimized sound engine.
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing.

Bootsy updates the Nasty Series to v1.2

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Sep 18, 2008 - comment 0 comments

Bootsy has released version 1.2 of the Nasty Series, a collection of freeware effect VST plug-ins for Windows PC.

Version 1.2 adds two plug-ins to the Nasty Series.

Bootsy NastyVSD
NastyVSD – virtual summing device

NastyVSD is a kind of “summing device” effects simulator and features some of the effects which can appear while going outboard (out of a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)) and receiving a analog summed stereo mix back into the DAW. When doing this, “safety limiting” or even AD clipping is performed, so this is included in this simulation as well. When driven hard (aka abused), this could be used for maximising purposes as well.

Bootsy NastyCS
NastyCS – character channelstrip

NastyCS features the very best “nasty” things coming from this Plug-In series and additionally two mid frequency EQ’s originally developed for the BootEQ Plug-In as well as high- and low-pass filtering.

Nasty Series v1.2 still includes the NastyLF, NastyHF and NASTYtableTop plug-ins from version 1.x.

Download Nasty Series v1.2 here.
