- Voxengo Deconvolver 1.4 released!
"Today convolutional reverbs become more and more demanded. With
convolution we have an opportunity to capture the sound of anything in
the world that can generate a reverb, and use these sound impulses
freely in any situation imaginable. This enables us to use the sound
of the high-end reverb units, the real-world rooms, halls, cathedrals,
synthetic reverbs and other sources, including non-reverb ones,
without any hassle and in a uniform way using only a single program or
a plug-in module.
Voxengo Deconvolver supports almost all sample formats (bit-depths) of
uncompressed mono/stereo WAV files. And offers a very convenient
environment to deconvolve large sets of recorded files. Voxengo
Deconvolver also offers a true mathematical FFT deconvolution which
delivers 100% exact deconvolution. At the same time this puts a huge
demand on the system memory - Deconvolving a 25-second stereo file at
96 kHz may require up to 100 MB of memory." (6/3/2003)

- Voxengo releases
CurveEQ VST 1.7 - A
professional WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get")
linear-phase spline equalizer PC VST plug-in - was released. This new
version was in beta for quite a long time and existing users have
already got the idea which features were added. For those who unaware
of the improvements made, CurveEQ now works much more stable and
faster. Many new GearMatch options were added, spectrum inertia and
slope controls were implemented. Now captured SpectruMatch spectrum
can be loaded from/stored to a disk file which makes it possible to
catalog captured spectrums for further reference. Several new factory
presets were added, help file was improved and main GUI skin was
redesigned for a nicer look and feel.
The major improvement of this version of CurveEQ was reimplementation
of saturator's algorithm. CurveEQ's saturator became a vintage limiter
with a high quality action. Now it is possible to bring a nice
analog-style limiting to any audio material being processed. Saturator
can be successfully used as a mastering limiter too. Just give it a
try! www.voxengo.com (3/24/2003).
