BTE Audio releases TS’ Secret 2.0, vintage overdrive effect

BTE Audio TS’ Secret

BTE Audio has released version 2.0 of TS’ Secret, a free vintage overdrive effect plug-in for Windows.

Soft clipping alone is not sufficient to emulate the elusive creamy character of a legendary vintage overdrive pedal. In order to explore the secret ingredients of legendary sound and feel, every subtlety throughout the entire signal path should be meticulously analyzed and documented. Only this ensures authentic recreation of the exact sound and feel of the legend in the digital domain. TS’ Secret is the result of this keen but painful philosophy.

Just like its legendary role model, TS’ Secret preserves the original dynamics of its input signal, which avoids muddiness and vastly improves clarity and responsiveness (see the accompanying article for details). Regardless of the overdrive amount, it stays in focus and delivers the ultimate touch sensitive dynamic punch.

TS’ Secret for Windows (VST) is available to download at no cost.

BTE Audio AEQ2

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.

The AEQ1 Algorithm accurately and efficiently simulates the earlier version of these modules in the digital domain with its meticulously designed topology.

AEQ1 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.

  • Clearly and concisely implemented in pure C++: portable to any platform that is supported by a C++ compiler.

There seems to be a demo VST plug-in of AEQ1 (which requires a WIBU Systems CodeMeter Stick), but I couldn’t find a link on the BTE page, so perhaps you need to email them for more info.
