Synapse Audio has launched the GQ-7, a equalizer effect for Propellerhead Reason.
The Synapse GQ-7 rack extension is designed as a professional mixing and mastering equalizer, offering five bands with high-quality parametric and shelving EQs, plus two additional low- and high cut filters with variable slopes. The GQ-7 is suitable for a broad spectrum of tasks — whether you need an equalizer to mix instrument tracks, remove problem frequencies in your master with surgical precision, or get rid of the mic rumble in recordings, the GQ-7 does it all, while delivering superior results.
All filters in the GQ-7 are designed to handle modulation without artefacts, such that the EQ can be used for creative purposes too, well outside the realm of traditional EQ applications. Especially the low- and high cut filters are well suited for creative purposes- their unique sound offers a great alternative to the typical sound of standard low- and high pass filters.
With Auto-gain compensation (AGC), Phase Inversion and Send Mode on board, the GQ-7 surpasses most equalizers in terms of flexibility.
The GQ-7 was designed with low CPU usage in mind, allowing to use a large number of instances simultaneously on modern computers. Unused bands are not processed, furthermore the EQ requires no CPU power when idle.
The GQ-7 Rack Extension is available for purchase for 65 EUR.

Voxengo has updated its SPAN and Overtone GEQ free effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac, providing minor fixes and adding VST3 support.
SPAN is a real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plug-in for professional music and audio production applications.
For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.
Overtone GEQ is 7-band harmonic (overtone) graphic equalizer AU and VST plugin with multi-channel operation support (supporting up to 8 input/output channels, host setup-dependent). Overtone GEQ offers extensive internal channel routing capabilities, and supports mid/side channel processing. Beside equalizing, Overtone GEQ applies harmonic enhancement processing: it uses 7 harmonic enhancement modules, one for each EQ band. This generates a complex harmonic coloration you will probably like a lot.
These updated and other pro audio plug-ins can be downloaded at the Voxengo web site.

J1000 has announced the release of BTQ2, a free bass/treble equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.
BTQ2 is simple equalizer that twists bass and treble using two interlocked pairs of shelf and peak filters. Some famous studio equalizers use this method to achieve deep bass and sparkling treble while simultaneously reducing muddiness and harshness. Main advantage of BTQ2 is that it allows you to get desired results quickly.
- Independent bass and treble equalization modules.
- Each module consists of interlocked pair of shelf and peak filters.
- Filter slope is adjusted with span control instead of standard Q factors.
- 32-bit internal precision with zero latency and low CPU consumption.
- No introduced harmonic or dynamic distortion, no hidden signal processing.
The CH4D chorus plug-in was updated to version 1.1.
Changes in CH4D v1.1
- Improved sound quality of modulated signal.
- Broader delay time range, now from 3 to 15 ms.
- Different dry/wet knob reaction with more noticeable effect at start and end positions.
- New correlation meter.
Both plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST).
