Soundtheory has announced the release of an update to Gullfoss.

Version 1.9.0 of the intelligent equalizer for mixing and mastering in the studio is now accompanied by Gullfoss LIVE, which is optimized for low-latency situations like tracking and live mixing.

At a latency of less than 2 milliseconds, compared to the approximately 20 milliseconds for the regular version, Gullfoss LIVE delivers pristine sound quality and all the same features. The sound gains a little more character as the low-latency algorithm treats transients differently. This difference also makes Gullfoss LIVE an alternative for mixing and mastering music styles with very pronounced transients.

With the new release, Gullfoss gains support for sidechain processing to enable stem mastering, content-driven ducking and creative sound-design. The EQ display gain scale can now be changed so that even the most subtle movements can be observed.

The new equalizer engine debuting with version 1.9.0 improves upon the renowned sound quality of Gullfoss. A new innovative algorithm delivers a smoother high-end and a warmer low-end that will satisfy the most critical listeners. At the same time the CPU performance is improved at very high sampling rates.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, Gullfoss for Windows and macOS costs $199 USD. The plugin is offered at a 30% discount until April 28th, 2021. The update (including Gullfoss LIVE) is free for all existing users.
