Black Rooster Audio has announced the release of its Vintage EQ Bundle, comprising the VHL-3C and VEQ-5 passive equalizer circuit emulations, inspired by two of the most renowned classics from the 50s.
About the VHL-3C
Built around a cascade of two constant-K filters the VHL-3C‘s analog counterpart – a sought-after processor from the early 1950s – comprises an entirely passive design with very musical and interactive pass filters. Offering 3 simple and intuitive controls, the VHL-3C allows you to effectively remove rumble, hum or harsh frequencies from your signals. Set both filter knobs to their extreme positions and you‘ll end up with a narrow telephone-line bandpass. „So what?“, you may wonder – Black Rooster Audio is giving away this goodie for FREE!
About the VEQ-5
inspired by one of the most famous and renowned equalizers in studio history – focussing on the power range frequencies from 200Hz to 7kHz it is aimed at cleaning up and sweetening vocals. But it also does a great job on guitars and keys.
Vintage EQ Bundle features
- Authentic circuit emulation — Our real time SPICE type component based circuit simulation approach allows to authentically capture the sound and feel of the analog counterpart in all nuances. Every crucial part of the passive filter network including filter stage interaction and the influence of different load resistances have been faithfully modeled.
- SSE2 optimized code — DSP operations are pipelined using the SSE2 instruction set. This ensures highest possible performance operation despite very complex computations.
- Auto-adjusted oversampling for maximum audio transparency — Aliasing artifacts are efficiently attenuated using a low latency linear phase Dolph-Chebyshev poly-phase design. The oversampling is auto-adjusted to your session‘s sample rate to save valuable CPU power while offering the most transparent sound possible.
- HighDPI / Retina support — All our plug-Ins support high pixel density on Mac OSX and Windows to bring you the most enjoyable user experience on high DPI displays. Please refer to your manual to find whether your DAW is HighDPI capable if you‘re working on Windows.
The Vintage EQ Bundle for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for the introductory price of $39 USD (regular $69 USD). The VHL-3C plugin is offered as a free download.
