All the way from the show floor of the 141st AES convention in Los Angeles, Soundtoys is proud to announce the Soundtoys 5.1 update. All users with Soundtoys version 5 products will notice that the installers in their account have been updated to version 5.1.0 free of charge. All 5.1 installers will replace previous versions automatically, so no uninstalling is required.
The Soundtoys 5.1 bundle now includes Sie-Q, which is our brand new equalizer plug-in. 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.
Sie-Q is free through October 13, 2016, and a license for this new plug-in has already been deposited into the iLok accounts of all Soundtoys 5 and Soundtoys 5 Academic Bundle owners. Everybody else can grab Sie-Q here.
