Acustica Audio has announced the release of Blue Eq, an equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Acustica Audio Blue Eq

Blue Eq is a detailed emulation of vintage-revisited semiconductor equalizer, inspired by legendary British devices. For the first time ever, this well known EQ will be available in-the-box, and with a gorgeous original GUI.

Originally equipped with germanium, this EQ sounds thick & huge with its beefy bottom, musical mid-range and “expensive” air. Modeled after an incredible EQ heard on many hit records, this unit has both passive and active signal paths. This meticulously created VST version will help you transform your tracks from near-perfect to amazing.

Blue Eq for Windows and Mac (VST) is available for purchase for 89 EUR.

Universal Audio releases Tonelux Tilt EQ & Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-Ins

Universal Audio has released the Tonelux Tilt EQ and Valley People Dyna-mite, two plug-ins developed by Softube for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

Tonelux Tilt EQ

Designed to speed up EQ workflow and enhance creativity, the Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In allows for quick, simple, and effective broad-stroke EQ moves.

Softube Tonelux Tilt EQ

With the single Tilt control, engineers and producers can quickly mix as they go. Turn it to the right to cut lows and boost highs, turn it to the left to cut highs and boost lows. The Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In also models the transformer found in the Tonelux hardware, adding a subtle distortion for bass frequencies, fattening up the low end of a track.

The included Tilt Live EQ plug-in skips the transformer modeling, freeing up even more instances for live mixing. It also replaces the Gain control with a Boost Ceiling control, which keeps the output gain of the plug-in from being boosted no matter how much EQ boost is applied.

Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In features

  • A one knob equalizer that quickly gets your mix in shape.
  • Speeds up your workflow and makes mixing more intuitive.
  • Models the entire Tonelux Tilt circuit designed by Paul Wolff.
  • Smooth high and low pass filters.
  • Two plug-ins included —Tilt EQ with transformer modeling, Tilt Live optimized for live mixing.

Valley People Dyna-mite

The Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In is an exacting emulation of the classic limiter/expander/gate designed by the legendary Paul Buff, who founded the historic PAL studio in southern California.

Valley People Dany-mite

The Dyna-mite has enjoyed a fanatical cult following for over three decades and is considered a “secret weapon” by top engineers and producers. Although it can be used as a traditional limiter or expander, the Dyna-mite is also a creative tool capable of extreme, yet musical effects on a variety of sound sources.

The Valley People Dyna-mite plug-in offers the exact features and sonics of the famed hardware unit and can transform instruments with dynamic gating textures. It can be used for nearly anything from gently limiting and de-essing vocals, to demolishing the transients of any sound.

Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In features

  • An exacting emulation of the original legendary 80s dynamics processor.
  • Use it to limit, expand, gate or de-ess, with a wide range of uses.
  • Limiter goes from abusively squashing to transient-enhancing spikiness.
  • Expander/gate goes from strict and tight to subtly expanding by softening the soft sounds and bringing the louder sounds forward.

The Tonelux Tilt EQ and Valley People Dyna-mite plug-ins are available for purchase for $99 USD and $199 USD, respectively.

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 07, 2014 - comment 0 comments

VST Zone has launched Amplio 2, a free effect plug-in for Windows.

VST Zone Amplio 2

Amplio is a way to enhance boring and dull sound. It’s 3 band Equalizer with adjustable bands and additional multiband effect modules.

Plugin is originally designed to enhance drum patterns but it is powerfull enough to be used on any type of sound. Reverb effect routable to any of three bands will add more space to mix and Soft Limiter will prevent any clipping on final output.

Changes in Amplio v2.0

  • New multiband Noise gate with envelope controls will help you totally change your beat and create something new.
  • Total overhaul of user interface, faster load and smaller filesize. Improved controls. You can now use rigth mouse click to set deafult values and double right mouse click to set value to zero on all controls. Holding shift while draging will increase sensitivity for better value settings.
  • No more overlapping band control points on Frequency splitter.
  • Improved Reverb and fixed wet/dry mix.
  • Low band saturation now working correctly.
  • Improved soft limiter to work better with distortion module.
  • Control the stereo field with new multiband stereo balance module. Handy gadget for centering bass frequencies.
  • Assembly optimization of all modules in order to save as much cycles as possible. Even with new noise gate CPU usage is same or even better than in previous version.
  • Adjusted all existing presets and added new 14 new presets. Total 66 presets including Amplio presets that use Distortion module.

The plug-in is available as freeware for Windows (VST).

Youlean releases Freq-Balancer effect plugin

Youlean has released Freq-Balancer, a frequency analysis/equalizer effect plug-in designed for mastering.

Youlean Freq-Balancer
The Freq-Balancer is mainly designed for mastering, but it can be used when mixing down songs, as well on the separate tracks.

Freq-Balancer analyzes the frequency content of an audio signal and automatically applies an equalizer that evens out the frequency balance towards a curve found on many commercial tracks.

When Freq-Balancer analyses audio, it measures the audios frequency content over a period of time. It splits the incoming audio signal into 7 frequency bands. Then it measures and compares the audio levels within each band. Finally it applies EQ to compensate for any uneven frequency balance.

The plug-in is available for Windows (32-bit VST) as donationware.

de la Mancha sets free GTO, GTX, QB-3 & ClipStar plugins

de la Mancha has announced that its GTO, GTX, QB-3 and ClipStar plug-ins are now available as freeware.

de la Mancha GTX

GTO and GTX are a pair of vintage style ‘character’ compressors, designed like their muscle car name-sakes for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise. They have everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but are tuned for maximum control and ease of use, each with their own unique vintage colouring on top.

GTO is a peak compressor, designed for raw power and lightning response. GTX has a smoother RMS delivery with further refinement in the shape of a knee control.

de la Mancha QB-3

QB3 is a vintage-style, 3-band EQ plug-in, with its own unique colouring and a few tricks up its sleeve. For each band you can adjust the centre frequency and gain.

For the low and high shelving bands you can adjust the steepness of the slope, whilst for the mid peaking band you can adjust the bandwidth. This allows a range of sounds from steep, sharp cuts to smooth and gentle boosts.

de la Mancha ClipStar

ClipStar is a soft clipper effect plugin, designed to prevent peaks in a subtler way than hard clipping, increase loudness and add pleasing saturation.

Where ClipStar differs from other clippers is that it can leave the low frequencies untouched, where distortion is more evident, and allow a greater boost in gain without noticeably degrading the signal. You can use ClipStar for peak protection, for loudness gain or for sympathetic distortion depending on your mood and the phase of the moon.

The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST). Donations to Cancer Research UK are appreciated.

Boz Digital Labs releases T-Bone tilt EQ plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 01, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Boz Digital Labs has released T-Bone, a tilt EQ effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Boz Digital Labs T-Bone

While a tilt EQ is a very handy filter to have, we have added a few features that make it even easier to dial in the sound you need. We included a high pass filter with resonance control (think Bark of Dog) and low pass filter with resonance (henceforth to be known as Meow of Cat).

We also came up with this super hand feature called Boom and Harsh Control. Sometimes adding extreme amounts of tilt EQ can have some nasty side effects. If tilted too far to the left, you can end up with a lot of low end build up. Tilt too far to the right and you can get too much harsh high end. The Boom and Harsh Control lets you add massive amounts of tilt without getting harsh or boomy. It’s really an essential part of what makes this plugin so easy to use.

We also added mid/side mode and an analog mode that adds subtle distortion and compression to your sound. Enable that for some grit, or disable for super clean tone shaping.

T-Bone for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for the introductory price of $25 USD until July 7th, 2014 (regular $49 USD).
