Acon Digital DeFilter v1.0.2 WiN/MAC
DeFilter is an efficient tool to even out tonal imbalances in a mix or reduce
resonant peaks or dips in the frequency spectrum.

Even severe issues such as comb
filter effects or standing waves from untreated rooms can be addressed. DeFilter
can match recordings to target profiles such as music or speech, or alternatively
extract the overall timbre from the source – the large strokes – while evening
out narrow peaks and dips. The latter removes resonances and comb filter effects
effectively while preserving the tonal character of the input signal. Recordings
can also be equalized to match a reference recording.

Great care has been taken to provide a user interface that is straightforward
to use. Frequency dependent correction levels can be defined using custom curves,
so that DeFilter can focus on problematic frequency ranges while leaving other
frequency regions untouched. Realtime spectrum analyzers for both the input and
output signals visualize the effect on the frequency spectrum.

Acon Digital Equalize v1.1.14 WiN/MAC Acon Digital Equalize v1.1.14 WiN/MAC
Soft / VST Instruments 16-11-2015
Acon Digital Equalize is a parametric equalizer plug-in that combines unique features with excellent workflow and an intuitive user interface. Unlike other equalizers, you can freely adjust not only center frequency, gain and bandwidths, but also the filter slope for each band. The filter slope can be set anywhere from 3 dB to ultra-sharp 120 dB per octave. Needless to say, you can operate Equalize as a zero latency plug-in when using the minimum phase mode or choose to preserve the phase relationships in the linear phase mode. Equalize goes one step further, though, and introduces the unique mixed phase mode that allows you to set the latency freely in the range 5 to 120 milliseconds while preserving the phase relationships as far as possible. That gives a unique control over potential pre-ringing artifacts which is a common problem with linear phase filtering. Latency values below 20 milliseconds ensure that any pre-ringing is masked by the temporal masking of the human hearing while preserving the time-alignment across the audible frequency range.

Highlights

Up to twelve independent bands
Freely adjustable gain, frequency, bandwidth and filter slope
Three different phase modes, including the novel mixed phase mode
Choose channel mode for each band independently (mid, side, left, right or full processing)

One basic and one advanced LFO capable of audio rate stereo modulation
Two analog modelled AHR envelopes that double as envelope followers, one for the cutoff and one for amplitude
FM from main audio input or sidechain audio input
DSP coded using C++ and SSE2, Interface coded using the Juce framework (C++)
Password protected copy protection

Circuit Modelling and DSP

Cytomic uses the same circuit modelling techniques that are used in professional circuit simulation packages but optimised for real time use. The structure including all feedback loops and useful non-linearities of the original circuit has been preserved. The algorithm uses actual values for resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors and other circuit components. The voltages and currents are solved in real time and match as closely as possible to the analog circuit in both the time and frequency domains.

Band parameters can be adjusted using handles directly in the graphical representation of the frequency response, including bandwidths and filter slopes. A flexible real-time analyzer lets you monitor every aspect of the processing. You can easily switch between full, mid, side, left or right channel processing for each band and Equalize automatically routes the audio signal internally to ensure the best results and lowest possible latency.

Kuassa EVE-MP5 v1.0.0 VST VST3 x86 x64-CHAOS Kuassa EVE-MP5 v1.0.0 VST VST3 x86 x64-CHAOS
Soft / VST Instruments 21-09-2015
Inspired by the Legendary for the Modern Age

Inspired by the Pultec* MEQ-5 and EQP-1A combined into a single, compact plugin.
A unique saturation feature with intelligent level compensation. Perfect for adding grit to basslines, making vocals stand out in the mix, or instant mojo for anything. Also works great for mastering!
Authentic frequency response. Experience the Pultec* specific tricks with a modern twist.

Introducing the newest addition to the Extensive Vintage Equalizer family from Kuassa: EVE-MP5.

Kuassa EVE-MP5 is a reproduction of two of the most sought-after classic hardware equalizers, the Pultec* MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the EQP-1A Program Equalizer. We drew inspiration from them and combined both EQs into a compact, single plug-in with a color coded, straightforward interface intended for fast workflows and maximum usability.

Known for their signature frequency curves, the EVE-MP5 will bring massive lows, smooth mids and shiny highs to any tracks you put them into. Utilize the famous low-end trick of boosting and attenuating the low frequencies simultaneously for a rock solid bottom-end. The MP5 is also loaded with a power amp saturation unit in the signal path. Turn it on for a hotter signal and dial the input to give a mild edge to your tracks, or push more for an overdriven sound. The "Auto” switch in the input section is useful for maintaining constant gain levels while cranking the saturation via the input knob.

Features:

Combination of the two Pultec* EQs into a single, compact plug-in.
Color coded knobs and straightforward interface for fast workflows.
Unique Saturation unit on the input path with automatic level compensation.
Simultaneously boost and attenuate on the same low frequency.
Distinct Pultec* natural filter curve.
Dial up large amount of boost or cut without sacrificing naturalness and musicality
Kuassa EVE-AT v1.1.1 VST VST3 x86 x64-CHAOS Kuassa EVE-AT v1.1.1 VST VST3 x86 x64-CHAOS
Soft / VST Instruments 15-09-2015
The EVE-AT bundle is a compadre of equalizers modeled after the classic Neve* 1081 and 1084. Add oomph, remove muddiness, give vocals a husky treatment, increase presence, remove rumble, and add character to any tracks, or a mix just before final mastering.

The Kuassa EVE-AT1 / EVE-AT4 consists of two individual EQs inspired by the design of the legendary Neve* 1081 and 1084 that are known for their clear, smooth, and very musical characteristics. We are thrilled by the sound and present these EQs as a modern tribute to one of the most influential audio tools ever created.

EVE-AT1 is a 4-band parametric equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Inspired by the EQ section of a renowned British Classic –the Neve* 1081 –this equalizer delivers a clear, smooth, and musical sound to shape your tracks. The EVE-AT1 posseses an additional parametric band with expanded Q bandwidth selection in the low-mid and high-mid frequency ranges as compared to the EVE-AT4. In addition, the AT1 impelements a different high-pass and low-pass filter, giving the AT1 a slightly more conventional frequency response in these areas. These characteristics mean the EVE-AT1 is suitable for a broad range of musical applications, offering flexibility, versatility and all-round utility.

EVE-AT4 is a 3-band equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Designed as a tribute to the EQ section of the Neve* 1084, which was created as the successor to the legendary Neve* 1073. Although the EVE-AT4 possesses fewer bands, a smaller frequency selection palette, and less Q bandwidth selection options as compared to the EVE-AT1, its strength lies in its unique filter implementation, producing an idiosyncratic frequency response not present on the EVE-AT1. The result is a particular tonal character; the sound and tonal shape of its original incarnation is a hallmark of many classic recordings from the 70s.

Both the AT1 and AT4 were designed with simplicity and clarity in mind, allowing for straightforward usage and immediate productivity. Although they share certain tonal characteristics, the EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4 reveal their differences in the details. The EVE-AT4 is the stronger ‘character’ equalizer, while the EVE-AT1 is suitable as a ‘go-to’ equalizer for a wide range of instruments and musical applications.
