Acustica Audio Cooltec EQP-1

Acustica Audio has launched the Cooltec EQP-1 Program Equalizer Plug-In Suite, a bundle of 7 effect plug-ins in collaboration with CD Sound Master.

This suite is created to provide you with a rare piece of American Music History. This is a world-class, world-famous, original “Cooltec” designed as the very first in the “EQP” line, using the original transformers and vacuum tubes.

It uses vacuum tubes to provide the proper gain staging and an inductor for the amazing input frequency processing.

Cooltec EQP-1 Suite features

  • High Attenuation: Fixed Frequency Shelf Cut Equalization in 1/2dB steps from 0dB to 11dB. Increasing the “Attenuation” control reduces the wide shelf high frequencies.
  • High Boost: High Bell Boost Equalization in 1/2dB steps from 0dB to 11dB. Five “Q” Bandwidth options. Frequencies for High Boost: 3kHz, 5kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, and 12kHz (designated as KCS, meaning KiloCycles per Second). The High Boost Plug-In has a “Q” Width” control. These 5 buttons control the width of the bell-shaped frequency. Clicking button 1 activates the most narrow “Q” width. Clicking button 5 activates the widest “Q” shape.
  • High Boost/Cut: Simultaneous Boost and Cut on a single controller from 0dB to 11dB in 1dB steps. Five “Q” Bandwidth options. Fixed Shelf Cut Frequency with Simultaneous Bell Boost Frequencies: 3kHz, 5kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, and 12kHz (designated as KCS, meaning KiloCycles per Second). The High Boost/Cut Plug-In has a “Q” Width” control. These 5 buttons control the width of the bell-shaped frequency. Clicking button 1 activates the most narrow “Q” width.

  • Low Attenuation: Low Shelf Frequency Cut Equalization in 1/2dB steps from 0dB to 11dB. Frequencies for Cut: 30Hz, 60Hz, and 100Hz (designated as CPS, meaning Cycles per Second).
  • Low Boost: Low Shelf Frequency Boost Equalization in 1/2dB steps from 0dB to 11dB. Frequencies for Boost: 30Hz, 60Hz, and 100Hz (designated as CPS, meaning Cycles per Second).
  • Low Boost/Cut: Low Shelf Simultaneous Boost and Cut Equalization in 1/2dB steps from 0dB to 11dB. Frequencies for Simultaneous Boost and Cut: 30Hz, 60Hz, and 100Hz (designated as CPS, meaning Cycles per Second).
  • Preamp EQ In/EQ Out: Dynamic Signal Path of the EQP-1 with program selection between EQ In and EQ Out. Drive – warmth/harmonic distortion control. Click the “EQ On” button to use the sound of the electronics of the Cooltec with the EQ set to 0dB and engaged in the signal path. Click the “EQ Off” button to use the sound of the electronics of the Cooltec with the EQ removed from the signal path.

The suite is available for Windows (VST), priced at 89 EUR.

CDSoundMaster APEX Tape Collection

CD Sound Master has announced the release of its APEX Tape Collection suite of audio software plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

These audio plug-ins allow the user to transform their digital audio workstation into a classic vintage studio with the lineage of the “APEX” tape machine. Included are classic 2” multi-track reel to reels, vintage tube classics, and everything in between.

These Audio Plug-Ins are created with ultra-realistic, 3D Rendered Graphical User Interfaces, or GUI’s, that allow the user to enjoy the look and feel of the original consoles they are using.

“Our vintage tape machines look, sound, and operate like the real analog reel to reels they represent” says Michael Angel, CDSoundMaster, “… because they are created by recording through the actual original machines.”

CDS has worked with a process called “V.V.K.T.”, or Vectorial Volterra Kernels Technology for several years now, and when used with an excellence in procedure, signal integrity, and editing, it provides the user with a nearly identical result to using the original devices.

The APEX Tape Collection for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $149 USD. A free, fully functional APEX 440B Program from the collection is available to download from the product page.

CD Sound Master releases Vintage Tube Collection & Tube Booster

CDSoundMaster has announced the release Vintage Tube Collection and Tube Booster, two new tube effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

CDSoundMaster Vintage Tube Collection & Tube Booster
Vintage Tube Collection & Tube Booster effect plugins powered by Acustica Audio’s Nebula.

With the Vintage Tube Collection, everyone can afford to be a collector of rare vintage vacuum tubes. Included are prized tubes from Mullard, Amperex, Brimar, and Radiotechnique. There are a total of nine different tube programs in this collection.

CDSoundMaster states that “most modern producers have not had a lot of hands-on time with expensive, vintage tube gear, so their experience in the software market has largely been with overly-distorted, fake sounding tube drive. As a result, their expectations of what real tubes are supposed to sound like are anywhere from fizzy and distorted, to saggy and lacking in dimension. What we are doing is providing the real sound without overemphasizing the qualities. We actually built the hardware device to play the tubes. The result is the tube’s behavior at all volumes, also known as dynamic range, the frequency spectrum, and the harmonic distortion.”

The Tube Booster plug-in allows the user to add higher gain natural tube harmonic saturation. This is a process that has been emulated in many forms over the years, but because of its subjectivity, it is often implemented poorly and over-emphasized.

CDSoundMaster states that “… our technology allows us to recreate the purity of the analog signal with great detail, and in multiple dimensions.” This technology, called V.V.K.T., or Vectorial Volterra Kernels Technology, has been developed by Acustica Audio over many years, and CDSoundMaster has maintained close ties as beta tester and official 3rd Party Developer.

CDSoundMaster’s attention to detail does not end at the excellent sonic capabilities of these plug-ins, but they have also designed some of the most realistic Graphic Interfaces to date. Even more amazing is that these GUI’s, created by Vincent at GravityLinks, are completely unique to the software, and were designed from scratch.

The Vintage Tube Collection and Tube Booster for Windows and Mac (VST) are available to purchase for $79 USD and $49 USD respectively.
