rs-met EngineersFilter

rs-met has released updated versions of EasyQ and EngineersFilter, two free effect plug-ins for Windows.

after some beta testing and bugfixing (thx to all who participated), it’s now done. updated versions for EasyQ and EngineersFilter have been released. for EasyQ, it’s only a maintenence update with a little bugfix related to colorscheme handling.

EngineersFilter now includes two new approximation methods: Bessel and Papoulis. The Bessel design approximates a linear phase response in its passband and the Papoulis design achieves the maximum negative slope at the cutoff frequency when a monotonically decreasing magnitude response is assumed.

EasyQ and EngineersFilter are available as freeware VST plugins for Windows.

rs-met releases EngineersFilter, free filter effect plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 23, 2010 - comment 0 comments

rs-met has announced the release of EngineersFilter, a freeware filter effect plugin for Windows.

Engineers Filter is a filter plugin that allows for extremely steep filtering.

It achieves this by implementing high order IIR filter design methods that are commonly used in science and engineering, namely Butterworth, Chebychev, inverse Chebychev and elliptic (aka Cauer) filters. Each of these filter design methods can be applied to create lowpass, highpass, bandpass, bandreject, high/low shelving and peak/dip filters of orders up to 20.

EngineersFilter is available as a free download for Windows PC (VST) from Robin Schmidt’s website.

Changes in Straightliner v10.03

  • A 3rd envelope generator (for the pitch, amount adjustable for each oscillator separately).
  • More waveform manipulation facilities.
  • New color scheme handling (custom color schemes can quickly be created parametrically).
  • Several little improvements in details.
  • More presets.

Straightliner is available to purchase as a VST instrument for Windows PC, priced at 89 EUR.

rs-met releases CrossOver

rs-met CrossOver

rs-met has released CrossOver, an updated version of the Linkwitz/Riley based band-splitting plug-in Crossover 3-Way.

CrossOver is a plugin to split an incoming signal into several (at most 4) frequency ranges. It can be used to build your own multiband effects within a modular (sub)host environment. By using only 2 bands, you can also create bass-effects. These are effects which (counterintuitively) keep the low frequency range dry and affect only the high frequency range.

The band-splitting is done by complementary pairs of Linkwitz-Riley lowpass/highpass filters, the slope of which is adjustable between 12 and 96 dB/oct. For configurations with more than 2 output bands, the signal is first split into 2 bands (low and high) and then the low or high or both bands is/are split further, thus the splitting is done in a hierarchical manner.

Changes in CrossOver

  • Up to 4 output bands.
  • Sums flat in all configurations.
  • New GUI with customizable color-scheme.
  • Bugfix related to sample-rate changes.

Note: in some hosts, it may break backward-compatibility with the old Crossover 3-Way plug-in because of introducing a 4th output pair.

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

rs-met EasyQ

rs-met has announced the release of EasyQ, a free equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

EasyQ is an easy-to-use equalizer with an arbitrary number of filter stages in series connection. Each of the filter stages can operate in one of the following modes: peak/cut (aka bell or parametric EQ), high- or low-shelving, notch and low- or highpass (both with either 6 or 12 dB/oct slope).

EasyQ is also easy on the CPU and just does what an EQ is supposed to do without performing any additional voodoo. As such, it is well suited to serve as a go-to EQ for the routinely equalizing tasks.

EasyQ is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
