Cerberus Audio has announced Epoch, a dynamic comb filter effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Unlike ordinary equalizers, Epoch applies its effect according to the dynamics of the program material, similar to how a compressor/gate works.

Compared with ordinary compressors: Epoch provides a greater range of tonal color, and Epoch is more reactive to its input signal than a typical static filter or equalizer.

The heart of Epoch is a high-precision comb filter employing a multi-resolution FFT phase rotator and a fractional sample delay. Epoch’s effect is regulated by a dynamics section which has been specifically designed for Epoch.
