KeyToSound releases Production Pack public beta

KeyToSound has released a public beta of the Production Pack, including Dynamic EQ, Essential Compressor, Precision EQ and Vintage EQ.

KeyToSound Dynamic EQ

The Dynamic EQ is a 64 bit, zero latency signal processor that combines the functions of a compressor with the results of an equalizer. The combination of these features gives the Dynamic EQ an advantage over “static” equalizers in that it can respond in real time to signal input, applying equalization when it is needed, rather than all the time.

Dynamic EQ features

  • 4 bands with solo feature and individual metering
  • Threshold, ratio, attack, and release settings per band
  • Frequency, bandwidth, and gain settings per band
  • Global metering
  • +12db gain output
  • A/B setting switching
  • MIDI CC learn
KeyToSound Essential Compressor

The Essential Compressor is an extremely versatile and transparent compressor, designed for the discerning engineer who does not want any coloration or character added to the signal. The Essential Compressor lends itself perfectly for instruments ranging from classical instruments to rock bass and drums.

Essential Compressor features

  • 64 bit
  • responsive VU level indicator for input and output signal
  • A/B preset switching capable of automated setting changes
  • MIDI CC learn
  • +/- 24db headroom
KeyToSound Precision EQ

The Precision EQ is your next go to EQ for precise equalization. Featuring a FFT representation of either the input or output signal, you can see your equalization results, even if your ears deceive you.

Precision EQ features

  • 64 bit precision
  • 7 bands with Gain, Frequency, and “Q” settings
  • 7 different filter types per band
  • graphical drag and drop curve setting
  • global output metering
KeyToSound Vintage EQ

The Vintage EQ gets its name from the warmth and character you hear when passing a signal through this EQ. Any seasoned mastering or recording engineer will know that when using a “standard” digital EQ, the frequency reponse appraches 0dB as the signal frequency approaches the Nyquist frequency.

This is obviously not the way analogue equalizers behave and the Vintage EQ solves this problem by using an advanced filter algorithm that produces a curve that is not 100% symmetrical, producing a desired “vintage” sound. Another very important element to this powerful EQ is that unlike it’s competitors, the Vintage EQ does not use oversampling, since that would require downsampling and pre-filtering (to avoid aliasing) which in turn would ruin the sound.

Vintage EQ features

  • FFT display of incoming and outgoing signal – 64 bit precision
  • 7 bands with Gain, Frequency, and “Q” settings
  • 7 different filter types per band
  • graphical drag and drop curve setting
  • global output metering

The Production Pack public beta is fully operational for 30 days from their installation date and is available for Windows and Mac OSX (UB) 10.3.9 and above. VST, AU and RTAS formats are supported.
