OverTone DSP has announced the release of the 500-Series XL plug-in bundle, comprising EQ, dynamics and reverb plug-ins for Windows, Mac & Linux.
The RVB500 provides a stereo plate reverb capable of a rich variety of effects, with intuitive controls and low demands on CPU and system resources.
The DYN500 provides soft-knee compression, and a gentle ‘tape saturation’ style overdrive when driven at high levels.
The EQ500 provides a versatile three band parametric EQ, using Analogue Filter Modelling algorithms to accurately replicate a natural sounding analogue filter response without requiring high sample rates or CPU intensive upsampling, allowing more plugin instances in a typical DAW.
The DYN4000 emulates the world-famous SSL G-series channel dynamics, providing versatile compressor and expander / gate sections with variable hysterisis, switchable fast attack and hard / soft knee options.
All plugins are capable of mono or stereo operation, providing professional console grade processing while being economical with CPU and system resources.
The bundle is available for purchase at an introductory discount of 25% until March 1st, 2015 (£45 GBP).

Sequent has seven individual effect blocks: a Beat Looper; two Filters, both switchable between lowpass, bandpass, and highpass modes and capable of self oscillation even without an audio input; an oversampled Distortion unit; a Gate with variable depth and slew; a Panner; and a Delay unit capable of sub millisecond delay times, great for creating everything for from dub, slapback, and bouncing ball style echoes, to metallic comb filters or flanger effects.
Changes in Sequent v1.3.11
(fix: Mac OS X) Cables between effect modules can now be removed using a single button mouse.
(fix: Mac OS X) Fixed issue which could cause Sequent to be skipped by Kore or Maschine’s plug-in scan.
(fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Space key-presses will now always be passed through to Logic, ensuring that Logic’s transport can be started and stopped.
(fix: Mac OS X) Gatekeeper signed installers now install correctly on Mac OS X 10.5.
(improvement: Windows) The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one(s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
(fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed issue which caused Reaper to host new instances of Sequent as a mono plug-in.
(fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed minor memory leak in parameter names.
(improvement) Clearer UI fonts in various places.
