To celebrate the new year, PSPaudioware has re-released and super-sized its PSP sQuad bundle (includes four EQ plug-ins; AU/VST/RTAS for Mac OS X Universal Binary and VST/RTAS for Windows x32 and x64). It is a free update for registered PSP sQuad users.
The new edition includes PSP McQ track equalizer and PSP ClassicQex, an extended version of the PSP ClassicQ,
PSP McQ captures the sonic character and functionality of various classic console EQs such as the versatile MCI console EQs. However, while PSP McQ was inspired by these analog classics, the company added several modern features such as adjustable highpass and lowpass filters, 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. Other perks include gain following Q factors for the midrange bell-type filters.
PSP ClassicQex is an extended version of the PSP ClassicQ. All features of the previous version are available, and a new Low Mid section is added. It captures the sound and flavor of 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. To its classic features, PSP ClassicQ adds such features as 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) is available now on PSP's download page.
Until January 17, 2010, PSP sQuad bundle is offered at the special price of $99. Starting from January 18, 2010, regular price of $249 will be applied; all prices exclude taxes.
