Announcing Sie-Q – FREE through Oct. 13

September 28, 2016

Soundtoys is proud to announce the immediate availability of its first dedicated equalizer plug-in, Sie-Q.

Sie-Q

Instead of choosing one of the classic EQs that have been modeled one or more times already, we searched deep into our gear collection and dusted off a little-known, but much-loved (by those in the know) German equalizer module, the W295b. With Sie-Q, Soundtoys engineers meticulously modeled the decidedly musical curves of the W295b, and the pleasing harmonic distortion of its discrete transistor circuitry.

A contemporary of the more well-known Neve and API modules, the original W295b was used in the Siemens Sitral line of analog mixing consoles. Those consoles, though built like tanks, were known for their smooth EQ curves and sonically appealing coloration. The W295b in particular is revered for the space and air created by its high frequency band.

“Using Sie-Q feels like a reunion with an old friend.” 

– Bob Ohlsson (Motown, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops)

Soundtoys is offering Sie-Q FREE through October 13, 2016. Once the limited time offer ends, Sie-Q will be sold individually for $129. Sie-Q is included in the new Soundtoys 5.1 bundle and can be used as a stand-alone plug-in or within the Soundtoys Effect Rack.
