PSPaudioware has re-released its PSP sQuad bundle, which includes four EQ plug-ins, and is available in Audio Units, VST and RTAS formats for Mac OS X (Universal Binary); and in VST and RTAS formats for 32- and 64-bit Windows systems. PSPaudioware is offering PSP sQuad bundle as a free update for registered PSP sQuad users, while prospective users can try a fully operational 14-day demo.
The new edition of PSP sQuad bundle includes the PSP McQ equalizer and PSP ClassicQex, which is an extended version of the PSP ClassicQ. The PSP McQ is especially designed for making deep adjustments to a track in order to realize a desired sound, or to obtain great track separation in a mix, while PSP ClassicQ is designed for fixing and shaping individual tracks.
PSP McQ captures the sonic character and functionality of various classic console equalizers, such as the versatile MCI console EQs. Additionally, PSP McQ offers adjustable highpass and lowpass filters, a "steepness" (resonance) control for the shelving filters, optional bell filters for the low and high bands, and three nominal Q values for the midrange filters. PSP McQ also offers gain following Q factors for the midrange bell type filter; the Q factor of these filters gradually increases along with increases in boost or attenuation.
PSP ClassicQex offers all features of the previous version of the PSP ClassicQ, and adds a new Low-Mid section. PSP ClassicQ was inspired by various classic British-style equalizers. It captures the sound and flavor of famously musical high and low filters (such as those in early Neve EQs), melded to very precise midrange filter. In addition, PSP ClassicQ offers a selectable simulation of Class-A circuitry and output transformer for a unique, vintage-style color. PSP ClassicQ adds an adjustable highpass filter, switchable Q for low- and high-shelf filters, and a sweepable midrange bell-type filter.
The fully operational 14-day demo doesn't require a hardware dongle and is available on http://www.pspaudioware.com/plugins/squad.html PSP's download page.
