Stagecraft Software has launched Picante EQ, a new audio effect plugin developed in collaboration with Chris Warren aka Superhoax.

Stagecraft Picante

Inspired by EchoThief, Picante EQ is adapted from the Picante Max For Live patch.

Picante works as a tone shaper, graphic EQ, and light distortion. It can be made to add grit or a soft fuzz. The full range EQ gives you precise control even as the limiters introduce a nuanced amount of nonlinearities for tonal depth.

We use a unique combination of limiters and saturation to obtain a light push overdrive that is perfect for bring out the grit in horns and vocals, or used more aggressively it can be used to push a tone to be hard but not heavily distorted.

The inclusion of variable Q gives another dimension of control as you can push the sounds resonance toward ringing. This lets you use this plugin as an effect for otherworldly sounds, shaping a saxophone into a thick tinny sound and then morphing into a ringing percussive blast.

Picante EQ (VST/AU/AAX) is on sale at Plugin Boutique at a 70% discount until May 18th, 2018. During the sale, other Stagecraft plugins are up to 50% off as well.
