SN04/SN04-G Channel EQ Plugin Download Free
Solstice is approaching, and I've got a freebie you might have been looking for. Anyway, the astronomical year is coming to an end (at least in the northern hemisphere), and with it comes the completion of the key components of the Signal Noise line of mixing tools (*). What a coincidence. So here I go… But first, an image that says more than a thousand words.
I have to admit that creating a channel EQ was what first drew me into DSP. I wanted a single EQ that I could slap on any channel and do the basic things that I used to do with 2-3 different plug-ins.
As a result, SN04-G was created. It took some fancy detours (SN01 - SN03), which were unavoidable (and a lot of fun), but I'm finally here. Well, I was never not here, but that's a different story.
So, allow me to introduce this magnificent beast.
SN04-G is a hybrid character 3-band channel EQ plug-in with basic surgical capabilities. It features a LP/HP section, adjustable output volume and phase, and optional “analog modeling”. It’s designed with ASIO/CPU footprint that allows it to live across all channels of a project without taking away as much of the resources as an insert slot – well, almost – it has to do some processing, after all :D.FROM THE MANUAL
SN04G, as usual, is available as a VST (currently only for Windows) in 32-bit and 64-bit formats. Initially, I considered releasing a GUI-less version as well, but with 20+ parameters, more than half of which are switches (and not just two or three way ones), it was not exactly the epitome of ease of use o O — so, this time, there is only a GUI-based version. (EDIT 2020/01/30: As of v1.20, there is a GUI-free version for the truly daring.)
- HF: +/-18dB shelf or bell filter with variable bandwidth and switchable frequencies of 1.1kHz, 2.2kHz, 3.9kHz, 5.8kHz, 8.2kHz, 10kHz, and 12kHz
- MF: +/-18dB bell filter with variable bandwidth and switchable frequencies of 0.22kHz, 0.36kHz, 0.7kHz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz, and 7.2kHz
- LF: +/-18dB shelf or bell filter with variable bandwidth and switchable frequencies of 35Hz, 45Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz, 220Hz, 300Hz, and 400Hz
- HPF: slope of 6dB, 12dB, 18dB, and 24dB per octave, with frequencies 15Hz, 45Hz, 70Hz, 160Hz, and 360Hz
- LPF: slope of 6dB, 12dB, 18dB, and 24dB per octave, with frequencies 18kHz, 14kHz, 10kHz, 8kHz, and 6kHz
- bell filter bandwidth proportional to gain and frequency
- symmetrical and asymmetrical modes for boost/cut (bell filter only)
- “American” and “British” shelving modes
- output gain +/- 25dB
- phase invert at output
- optional very basic “analog modeling”
- mutable bands for quick A/B comparisons
Hm, pretty long list for such a simple thing as a channel EQ — anyway, happy upcoming solstice and stay well equalized…
…and of course, enjoy
