Black Rooster releases VEQ-1P program EQ, an emulation of the revered classic Pultec VEQ-1 hardware. Black Rooster Audio is really carving a niche for themselves as they are fast moving to the point of being regarded as one of the biggest players in the DSP plugins industry. The reason is not far fetched, – they make great sounding plugins that rivals the big names at a highly affordable price.
Using the VEQ-1P, you can easily adjust the low and high end frequencies, without impairing the midrange. The low end feels solid, smooth and gentle, while the high freqs are clean and sweet. The emulation really recreates the original signal path including both input and output stages. When pushed, it delivers sweet harmonics and if pushed even harder it saturates in a very musical and transparent way. VEQ-1P easily dials in the classic Pultec Low-End trick on drums busses and invokes the loveable Pultec overdrive trick for extreme vocals.
Features as specified by Blackrooster:
AUTHENTIC CIRCUIT EMULATION
Our real time SPICE type component based circuit simulation approach allows to authentically capture the sound and feel of the analog counterpart in all nuances. Every crucial part of the circuit, including the passive filter network, audio transformers and amplifier tube stages have been faithfully modeled.
SSE2 OPTIMIZED CODE
DSP operations are pipe-lined using the SSE2 instruction set. This ensures highest possible performance operation despite very complex computations.
AUTO-ADJUSTED OVERSAMPLING FOR MAXIMUM AUDIO TRANSPARENCY
Aliasing artifacts are efficiently attenuated using a low latency linear phase Dolph-Chebyshev poly-phase design. The oversampling is auto-adjusted to your session’s sample rate to save valuable CPU power while offering the most transparent sound possible.
HIGHDPI / RETINA SUPPORT
All our plug-Ins support high pixel density on Mac OSX and Windows to bring you the most enjoyable user experience on high DPI displays. Please refer to your manual to find whether your DAW is HighDPI capable if you’re working on Windows.
