Blue Cat Audio has released version 5.0 of Blue Cat’s Liny EQ, a complete rewrite of the low latency linear phase EQ plug-in.
Blue Cat’s Liny EQ is an 8 bands linear phase graphic equalizer with very low latency and comprehensive visual feedback: it processes audio signals without phase distortion, with an unusually short latency (less than 3 milliseconds).
Version 5.0 has now a brand new, fully customizable user interface, and includes many new features and enhancements: premium visual feedback with EQ curves, spectrum and spectrogram displays, new EQ shapes, single and dual channels modes, a new presets manager, Windows AAX support, multiple display sizes, new MIDI and automation mapping capabilities, and much more.
Blue Cat’s Liny EQ is available to purchase at a 25% introductory discount until June 15th, 2013. The Blue Cat’s Master Pack (which also includes Liny EQ) is 15% off.
Customers who recently purchased the software (in the past 3 months) will receive the upgrade for free, and others can upgrade to the new version for a small fee. Other Blue Cat Audio customers can purchase the plug-in with 40% discount.
HUE-X is perfect EQ for those who trust their ears or just love to experiment with sound. It is designed to let you bring out what you want in the sound instantly and with much ease. Now you can control different characteristics of the sound without having to deal with the obscurity of traditional EQ’s.
HUE-X breaks it down to ten faders: Boom, Depth, Fullness, Body, Warmth, Clarity, Sheen, Brightness, Sparkle, Punch. These faders are divided into two groups: Warm Tones (red strip) and Cool Tones (blue strip).
M4GIQ is a 4-band multi-fx plugin that lets you apply Gain, Panning, and Delay to each frequency band. This is extremely useful for spreading frequencies across the stereo image, making it easier for the sound to cut through.
You can shape the sound further with the Gain controls and High-pass/Low-pass filters. Delay can also be added to make an interesting effect, or to emphasize the spreading of frequencies.
Both are available to download as a bundle for Windows (VST) at no cost.
Voxengo has updates its CurveEQ spline equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac to version 3.2.
CurveEQ implements spectrum matching technology that allows you to transfer spectrum’s shape of one recording to another. In other words, this allows you to “copy” frequency balance of existing time-proven mixes so that other mixes that are still in the works may have a chance to sound better. This technology also greatly helps in music mastering since using it allows you to easily lessen any dramatic differences in the area of frequency balance between various tracks.
Changes in CurveEQ v3.2
Routing is now configured automatically in most cases.
Crash when a control point was close to the maximal or minimal frequency fixed.
Now static spectrum can be loaded from a WAV file directly.
CurveEQ for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) costs $89.95 USD.
A.O.M. has announced the release of its tranQuilizr equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
tranQuilizr is the most transparent equalizer ever. The sound is clean and transparent, even if you are working on very high or low frequencies.
It offers six equalizer bands and Lo/Hi cut filters, and supports both paragraphic (equalizer points) and parametric (knobs) operations. Every equalizer and filter can be put on LR(Stereo), L, R, M and S channel independently. This will be great for M/S equalizing on mastering and mixing.

Six equalizer bands and Lo-/Hi-Cut filters.
All equalizer bands and filters can be put on a channel in Stereo (LR), Left, Right, Mid and Side.
Equalizer supports 20Hz to 30kHz center frequency, -24 to +24dB gain and 0.05 to 10 octave bandwidth.
Three equalizer types of different sound characters.
Filters support 1Hz-10kHz for Lo-Cut and 100Hz-30kHz for Hi-Cut.
On/off and solo switch for every band.
Automatic Gain Compensation (AGC).

Monitoring channels is selectable from Stereo (LR), Left, Right, Mid and Side.
64-bit floating point internal precision.
Supports 44.1kHz to 192kHz project sample rate.
Small plug-in latency (64 samples).
tranQuilizr for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $25 USD (1 year license) / $99 USD (lifetime license).
A.O.M. has also updated its Invisible Limiter, Stereo Imager D and Wave Shredder plug-ins to version 1.5.0.
Changes in v1.5.0
All plug-ins support direct value input from keyboard.
Invisible Limiter supports 0.01dB step for controls.
Invisible Limiter supports plug-in latency control. (it was once removed in 1.4.0.).
Waves has announced the release of GEQ, a full-featured graphic equalizer with both Classic and Modern mono and stereo components, featuring 30 ISO bands plus high and low pass filters, a high precision floating parametric EQ bell filter, and a real-time analyzer.
GEQ Classic components use traditional proportional Q filters inspired by the renowned DN series 1/3 octave equalizers, which narrow the filter width as you increase a band’s gain; GEQ Modern components utilize special Flat-Top filters which eliminate the artifacts associated with band interaction, and provide perfect plateau and stair-stepped responses.
Set band gains one-by-one, or draw your curve via touch-screen or mouse. Finally, GEQ’s integrated real-time analyzer lets you compare the difference between two sources. Created for live sound but equally useful in the studio as well, GEQ is powerful proof that all equalizers are not created equal.
30 ISO bands with selectable 6 ,12 & 18 dB scales.
Independent HPF, LPF and parametric bells per side.
Classic component with Proportional Q filters.
Modern component with non-interactive Flat-Top filters.
GEQ is now available for the introductory price of $99 USD (regular $200 USD). GEQ is Native and SoundGrid compatible, and included in Mercury, SoundGrid Pro and SoundGrid SD7 Pro bundles.
