Cerberus Audio has announced Epoch, a dynamic comb filter effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Unlike ordinary equalizers, Epoch applies its effect according to the dynamics of the program material, similar to how a compressor/gate works.
Compared with ordinary compressors: Epoch provides a greater range of tonal color, and Epoch is more reactive to its input signal than a typical static filter or equalizer.
The heart of Epoch is a high-precision comb filter employing a multi-resolution FFT phase rotator and a fractional sample delay. Epoch’s effect is regulated by a dynamics section which has been specifically designed for Epoch.
Epoch achieves unique dynamic tonal shifts, and is an alternative to conventional signal processors, such as equalizers and compressors.
Comb Filter Section:
360° Phase Rotator.
Multiple Envelope Detectors.
Program Dependent Release.
External Side Chain.
Undo/Redo with Unlimited Steps.
4 Persistent Memory Banks.
Double Precision Signal Path.
Epoch will be available for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU). Pricing and release date TBA.
Axis Plugins has announced the release of Track EQ, a precision equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
The Track EQ is not another native software simulated tube instrument. We believe that simulating fantastic classic or retro analog hardware will degrade the sound of a whole generation. A software simulated plug-in is not able to cover the sound of an unique classic hardware where every single unit has had its own unique sound because every building part used is an unique real-world-physical-piece with great unique flaws. These flaws imprint. These flaws make the unique sound.
All those software simulations that are available will always and only be able to copy one unique classic or retro hardware unit. So in the end using a hardware simulation plug-in will make everybody using the same unit over and over again. And all uniqueness is gone.
That is why we think buying the classic or retro analog hardware is the choice to do. And after you bought this hardware and have recorded your sound on to the digital domain. That is where the Track EQ comes in. The Track EQ will not color your sound. The Track EQ lets you edit your digital data surgically.
Track EQ features
8 individual filter blocks, up to 16 filter blocks in split mode.
Every filter block can select from up to 11 different filter types.
Full solo and mute for one filter block or a group of filter blocks together.
Automation for all Digital Audio Workstations.
FFT Analysis and Spectrograph Display before or after the processed signal.
Track EQ is available for Windows and Mac (AU/VST/RTAS). A 12-month license is available to purchase for 39 EUR, which includes all current and future plugins.
Voxengo has released version 2.5 of SPAN, a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plugin 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.
SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your spectrum analyzer preferences. You may specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum’s visual slope. Beside that you can choose to display secondary spectrum of a desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum). Spectrum can be smoothed out visually for an easier examination.
Changes in SPAN v2.5
Crash issue reported in Apple Logic Pro fixed.
If secondary spectrum is active, the delta between primary and secondary spectrums at cursor position is now displayed.
A crash related to UI resizing function fixed.
SPAN for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to download as freeware.
