VEQ BundleVintage Equalizers


Black Rooster Audio is proud to present the Vintage EQ bundle. Inspired by two of the most renowned classics from the 50s the VHL-3C and the VEQ-5 will bring the beauty of these passive equalization circuits into your DAW. As a teaser we're giving away the VHL-3C for free!

About the VHL-3C

Built around a cascade of two constant-K filters the VHL-3C‘s analog counterpart - a sought-after processor from the early 1950s - comprises an entirely passive design with very musical and interactive pass filters. Offering 3 simple and intuitive controls, the VHL-3C allows you to effectively remove rumble, hum or harsh frequencies from your signals. Set both filter knobs to their extreme positions and you‘ll end up with a narrow telephone-line bandpass. „So what?“, you may wonder - Black Rooster Audio is giving away this goodie for FREE!

About the VEQ-5

inspired by one of the most famous and renowned equalizers in studio history - focussing on the power range frequencies from 200Hz to 7kHz it is aimed at cleaning up and sweetening vocals. But it also does a great job on guitars and keys.

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 passive filter network including filter stage interaction and the influence of different load resistances have been faithfully modeled.

SSE2 optimized code

DSP operations are pipelined 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.

Joe Barresi„The VEQ-5 plugin is a must have for that broad, sweet eq that a Pultec is known for. The tonal shaping of a midrange eq is more important to me than the program type eq because most music lives in the midrange, and this plugin does a great job of sculpting a sound without sounding harsh.“

mike_tds„Digital EQs and compressors rarely stack up against their analog counterparts. I often wonder why some companies continually release so many variations of plugins that weren't capturing the essence and consumer need of the original in the first place. That being said, Black Rooster's VEQ Bundle has nailed the sound of these EQs! Nothing is rivaling the VEQ Bundle. Loving it guys! Keep up the good work.“
