Filter Section

Head Crusher features a great sounding filter section, with both a resonant low-pass and high-pass filter, however the most interesting part of the filter section is the tone knob.

Turn the tone knob to the right to give your source track crispier highs, or turn it to the left to make your track's bass sound much more powerful and full.

The Lindell ChannelX bundle is more than your typical bundle. While on one level it is a collection of three amazing Lindell plugins, the 7X-500 limiter, the PEX-500 EQ and the 6X-500 preamp, it also includes the ChannelX plugin shell which allows you to run all three plugins in a single insert and even change the order that they appear in the signal path. Start off with the 6X-500 preamp to add a bit of punch and color, then add some tasty vintage FET compression with the 7X-500 limiter and then dial in some sweetness with the Pultec inspired PEX-500 EQ.

Soft / VST Instruments 21-09-2015
GSXL4070 is G-Sonique´s new parametric equalizer inspired / based on the famous British mix console equalizers. GSXL4070 offers a modern solid
state analog electronic sound without any unwanted or over saturated coloring of the signal (like with vacuum tube or vintage EQ's), but it still has a very
intense, rich and significant sound.

GSXL4070 is a fully parametric stereo equalizer with 4 bands (LF, LMF, HMF, HF) and HP (BASS CUT), Q control, and +-12db attenuation/boosting of each
band. Ideal for mixing and mastering purposes.

For the best possible clarity of sound and minimum artifacts, 2x internal oversampling algorithms were used.
- British mix-console EQ "solid state electronics" style of sound without unwanted coloration or an overly saturated sound. With 2x internal oversampling
for double precise DSP algorithms, calculations for the minimum of unwanted artifacts.

- 4 fully parametric EQ bands:

LF - Low frequency, (20-500Hz)
LMF - Low mid frequency, (200 Hz - 3 kHz)
HMF - high mid frequency, (700 Hz - 12 kHz)
HF - high frequency ( 1.5 kHz - 20 kHz)

HP (High pass - Bass cut) filter 15 - 400 Hz bass cut with on/off switch

with Q-control (bandwidth), attenuation/boost ( + / - 12db per band),

- Output Volume knob

- Bypass switch
