Soundtoys Releases New Sie-Q Equalizer Plug-in and 5.1 Bundle Update

Soundtoys Releases New Sie-Q Equalizer Plug-in and 5.1 Bundle Update-unnamed.jpg

Soundtoys, Inc., a leading developer of professional audio effects plug-ins, announced the immediate availability of its first equalizer plug-in, the Sie-Q. Instead of choosing one of the classic EQs that have been modeled one or more times already, Soundtoys searched deep into their gear collection and dusted off a little-known, but much-loved (by those in the know) German equalizer module, the W295b. With Sie-Q, Soundtoys engineers meticulously modeled the decidedly musical curves of the W295b, and the pleasing harmonic distortion of its discrete transistor circuitry.

Like the more well-known Neve and API modules, the original W295b was used in the Siemens-Sitral line of analog mixing consoles. Those consoles, though built like tanks, were known for their smooth EQ curves and sonically appealing coloration. The W295b in particular is revered for the space and air created by the high frequency band.

For a limited time, Soundtoys is offering Sie-Q as a free download at soundtoys.com. The new Sie-Q equalizer plug-in is included in the new Soundtoys 5.1 bundle (the update is also free for current Soundtoys 5 bundle owners) and can be used as a stand-alone plug-in or within the Soundtoys Effect Rack. Once this offer ends October 13, 2016 Sie-Q will also be sold individually for $129.

Great 5.1 update on the bundle. BUT... alas.. still no addition of being able to mousewheel through the drop-down menus. Over the past two years I have consistently filed this feature request with Soundtoys support. Maybe in the next update ....hoping..

Hi! I´m a soundtoys 5 bundle owner, and I just installed the 5.1 update. When I first started my host (cubase pro), I was asked to authorize sie-q. I entered my ilok id+password, and then I got a message that I do not have a license for sie-q. I should already have a license in my Ilok account according to this info from SoundToys website:

Sie-Q is free through October 13, 2016, and a license for this new plug-in has already been*deposited into the iLok accounts of all Soundtoys 5 and Soundtoys 5 Academic Bundle owners. Everybody else*can grab Sie-Q here.

is there anyone else who has the same problem?

Took forever but I finally got it. Had to resubmit the order form twice, which I guess ain't so bad. Anyway, not doing a mix today so can't really put it through paces but a quick run-through tells me this will be a useful plugin for sure.

Search soundtoys in google and use the cached "my account" link. The Downloads work from there.

Awesome Soundtoys as always!!! I don't have the HW eq, but I do have the Germanos eq series for Acustica Audio Nebula. Just did a comparison and it's like 99% the same! No need to load 3 instances of Nebula anymore just to emulate the original unit's 3 bands :D

Is it a part of the bundle V5 ? Or do we need to proceed anyway .... As an individual purchase for free

Edit : seems that according to them , v5 owners should receive a licence already in their ilok account and just have to get V 5.1 installer

Spent half an hour with this - sounds really nice so far. High and Low band especially. This makes me want to add 'air' to everything.
