VirSyn has released version 1.5 of BARK, a multiband filter effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

The multiband filter BARK takes the approach to match the reception characteristic of the final destination of all sound: the ear. The ear behaves as if it contains a bank of filters, each filter passing frequencies within the critical band. Two tones separated by more than a critical bandwidth are received by the ear independently. For this reason BARK contains a filter bank with 27 bandpass filters matching the critical bandwidth.

Changes in BARK v1.5

  • VST3 / VST2.4: 64-bit version for Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
  • VST3: AI Knob Interface integrated.
  • Redesigned user interface.
  • Control/Command click on band level resets to 0dB.
  • Preset name not remembered on save/load with some Hosts. Fixed.
  • Wavelab 7: VST3 crash fixed.
  • RTAS: crash on Bypass with mono plugin. Fixed.

BARK for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available to purchase for 99 EUR for the first 200 customers.
