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