Voxengo is very happy to announce the release of GlissEQ version 3, a powerful parametric dynamic equalizer plugin for professional music production applications.

GlissEQ delivers filters with dynamic behavior. When using a normal equalizer, you always get what you set: If you specify a 6 dB boost at 100 Hz you get a 6 dB boost at 100 Hz. GlissEQ offers a slightly different approach. When you specify +6 dB at 100 Hz, you don’t necessarily get 6 dB of gain; the filter’s effective gain is adjusted dynamically according to the sound material you are filtering.

Such “dynamic behavior” of the GlissEQ filters gives you a friendly, assisting equalization experience. Boosting up the highs will not create the fatiguing effect of overload, and boosting up the lows will not make things sound mushy. Instead you will get a pleasant transient-emphasizing effect bringing life and dimension to your tracks. The pronunciation of the dynamic behavior can be controlled via special “Dyn” parameter.

GlissEQ also features a real-time spectrum analyzer. Moreover, the spectrum of a track can be exported to any other instance of GlissEQ thus making real-time inter-track spectrum comparisons possible. This can help you free frequency ranges in one track to allow the instrument in another track occupying same frequencies breathe.
