J1000 updates QX24 plug-in to v1.1

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on May 23, 2012 - comment 0 comments

J1000 has updated its QX24 equalizer/exciter effect plug-in for Windows to version 1.1.

J1000 QX24

QX24 is one half equalizer, other half exciter. It is authentic design and there are just few other plugins that offer comparable functions without getting too complicated.

Using it properly you’ll be able to accent parts of spectrum where instrument’s character resides making it more prominent, while gently reducing remaining frequencies that often clutter the mix. Sound gets harmonically enhanced mostly with first two harmonics, but if you push it past moderate drive levels it gets much brighter – experiment and find the best way to utilize it.

Changes in QX24 v1.1

  • Boost mode which extends drive ranges for both filters for more drastic effect (click on logo).
  • Filters’ on/off switches for separate monitoring of each one.
  • Real Q factor values.
  • New knob design.

QX24 is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows.

Sound Magic releases Neo Harmonic

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Apr 19, 2012 - comment 2 comments

Sound Magic has released Neo Harmonic, an equalizer/exciter hybrid effect plug-in for Windows featuring a custom shaped filter response curve.

Sound Magic Neo Harmonic

There’s an EQ theory called “Yin and Yang” which says that adjusting one band will automatically influence the others. Neo Harmonic takes this theory to a new level by not only boosting/cutting the selected frequency, but also exciting the harmonic partials of that frequency, extending changes throughout the whole audible frequency band. The result is a unique sound which traditional parametric EQs would be hard pressed to achieve.

Neo Harmonic will give you a fuller sound, with more detail and clarity than is possible with a traditional parametric EQ.

Neo Harmonic features

  • Innovative Harmonic Excite Technology.
  • Innovative Custom Curve Shape enables users the define their own harmonic curve to achieve unique sound.
  • Super Wide Bandwith adjusting range gives users more controls on final sound.
  • Sample and hold fuction enables users to analyze an audio signal first, then hold its harmonic information and apply to another audio track.
  • Up to 32Bit/384KHz resolution.

Neo Harmonic for Windows (VST/Supreme Piano 2 add-on) is available to purchase for 49 EUR.
