Phoenixinflight has released Optron 3A and Solid4010, two free effect plug-ins for Windows.

Unlike standard compressors with adjustable parameters (attack, release, ratio, threshold etc.), Optron’s behaviour ist program dependent and adapts to the processed signal. Its mainly designed for processing solo tracks such as vocals, guitars, drums or other instruments, due to its specific nature it is not very suitable as a bus- or mastering compressor.

Solid4010 is a VST equalizer plugin featuring four parametric EQ bands and a filter section. Its layout and parameters derive from the SSL 4000 console, which is well-known for its sound and ease of use. Solid4010 contains 14 presets, which provide useful starting values for further adjustments.

Optron 3A & Solid4010 are available to download as freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.

Phoenixinflight 10EQ Graphic Equalizer

Phoenixinflight has released 10EQ, a free graphic equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

10EQ is a VST plugin based on the API 560 Graphic Equalizer. Originally developed in the 60′s, it was used in many API consoles in the 70′s and 80′s.

Just like its hardware counterpart, 10EQ is a very versatile tool and can be used for many mixing and mastering purposes. It features 10 bands of equalization with a special “Proportional Q” design, which automatically narrows or widens the filter bandwidth. The CPU usage of the plugin is very low, so it can be used in large quantities at the same time. 10EQ contains 20 presets, which provide useful starting values for further adjustments.

10EQ Graphic Equalizer features

  • 10 EQ bands: 16 kHz/8 kHz/4 kHz/2 kHz/1 kHz/500 Hz/250 Hz/125 Hz/63 Hz/31 Hz.
  • Every band has a boost/cut range of 12 dB.
  • Instead of constant Q values, the filter bandwidth widens at lower boost/cut levels and narrows at higher settings.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • 20 presets included.

10EQ is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

Phoenixinflight updates ThrillerEQ to v1.3

Phoenixinflight ThrillerEQ

Phoenixinflight has released version 1.3 of ThrillerEQ, a free equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

ThrillerEQ is a VST Plugin based on the GREAT RIVER HARRISON 32 EQ Equalizer. These equalizers were used in Harrison 32 Consoles, on which countless hit records were produced, including Abba, Queen and Michael Jackson. It was used by Bruce Swedien in the recording and mixing of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the best-selling album of all time! Since ThrillerEQ does not exactly reproduces every detail of its hardware counterpart (non-linearities, harmonics etc.), it is not an exact emulation. However, this plugin features EQ parameters which are very close to the original device.

Changes in ThrillerEQ v1.3

  • Switchable filter characteristics on the high and low ranges (shelving or peaking).
  • Additional output section includes a level control knob, a brickwall limiter and a phase inversion switch.
  • ThrillerEQ Classic, an alternate version without output section, is also included.
  • New set of presets.
  • CPU performance has been improved.

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

Phoenixinflight Chief Graphic Equalizer

Phoenixinflight has released Chief Graphic Equalizer, a free equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

It’s an emulation of the BOSS GE-7 Equalizer. It is the most popular guitar pedal equalizer. But despite of the fact that it is a pedal effect, it can be also used for other purposes.

Since the plugin version does not generate noise, humming or other unwanted sound artefacts small pedal effects usually do, it can be even used for certain mixing or mastering purposes, especially when no surgical precision is needed (For example, when you just want to quickly cut the mids or boost high or low frequencies)

Chief Graphic Equalizer features

  • 7 bands of adjustable EQ sliders.
  • Allows for boost/cut of up to +/- 15dB per band.
  • 100Hz band and 6.4kHz band have shelving curves, the other bands are peaking.
  • Level control.

Chief Graphic Equalizer is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

These equalizers were used in Harrison 32 Consoles, on which countless hit records were produced, including Abba, Queen and Michael Jackson. It was used by Bruce Swedien in the recording and mixing of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the best-selling album of all time!

ThrillerEQ is not an exact copy of the actual gear. Frequency distribution on the peak bands is somewhat different. Originally, Hi and Lo bands had switchable characteristics: peaking or shelving. These switches had been removed, the Hi band has a shelving filter and the Lo band a peaking one. However, besides of these minor changes almost all parameters of the plugin are the same.

ThrillerEQ features

  • 3 Peak EQ-bands with Gain and Frequency controls (Low, Low-Mid, Hi-Mid).
  • Hi Shelf Band.
  • High- and Low-pass filters with sweepable frequency.
