Variety Of Sound - BootEQ MkII
BootEQ mkII is basically the further improved and reworked successor of the already known and popular musical mixing EQ.
Beside some enhancements in the EQ department BootEQ mkII features a detailed modelled pre-amp section including finest transformer and tube style saturation emulation and audio coloring capabilities.
New EQ improvements are affecting the LF frequency range where now more control is given due to selectable frequencies and a switchable low-cut or peak mode. All other filters and curves remain unchanged.
Far more interesting is the brand new modelled pre-amp simulator section, which is added as a switchable option to the right side of the EQ. The pre-amp simulator offers some detailed control on non-linear behaviour such as saturation (volume compensated) and sonic color alterings of the audio signal.
The overall sound may firstly appear as a rather subtle effect but this device is capable of adding some really nice dynamic enhancements and also pleasant color alterings which are highly addictive. A tight bass response is easily dialed in as well as typical transformer LF distortion or HF detail enhancements.
The soundengine was developed around a further improved and reworked TesslaSE transformer algorithm, runs now in 4x oversampling mode and also contains massive SSE and assembler optimizations.
