Radio mics for example (90% of al lead vocals on live recordings) can have this saturation/distortion that's almost inaudible (maybe from the compression part of the companding, maybe a limiter, maybe bad gain staging, who knows) but Gullfoss makes this quite audible. Any plug ins I add that add harmonics are "punished" by Gullfoss straight away

I was experimenting a bit just now, and noticed that some radiomics with certain voices sound distorted with Gullfoss anyway, even without plug ins.
The distortion is not added by Gullfoss I think, because you do hear it in the unprocessed audio, it's just masked.
Masking can be a good thing you know

Hey guys! I have just downloaded the demo today and i'm trying to use it on a not very well recorded vocal, any settings advice?

I would personally advise to only use it on a full mix. With the edges set to 20 hz and 12khz.

The thing is although this does do automatic EQing, once you start tweaking, it is not a silver bullet. You still need to know what it is you are trying to achieve to get the best out of it.

If you look at the controls and dare I say read the manual, you will understand that there is no way that anyone who hasn't heard the vocal recording you're referring to could advise you of any settings.

Also, I think you still need to understand EQ to use this thing. And before you EQ anything you should know what it is you are trying to improve or change first.

CM Music Awards:
“The dream of fully-automatic EQ is realised with this incredible plugin from newcomers Soundtheory. Gullfoss models the human auditory system to “understand what your signal really sounds like and how it can be improved”, then adjusts the frequency response of its filters 100 times a second to constantly shape the spectrum for the optimum sound. Once you’ve got your head around the vagaries of its few controls, the transparent spectral enhancement it delivers is a thing to behold. Alas, Gullfoss is currently only available to Mac-based producers, but a Windows version is due sometime in 2019.”

Hi all,

demoing Gullfoss for the first time, 10.14, Logic X 10.4.4

I see that in the changelog:

v1.0.16 (2018-04-04)
* Added crosshair in EQ graph showing exact frequency and gain at mouse pointer position.

I'm running the newest build/trial and do not see an overlay of the frequency... I'm seeing the crosshair 'tics' along the X/Y axis as I move my cursor, but no indication of frequency or gain. In order to see the frequency, I'm having to drag one of the red end lines over the dynamic areas being cut/boosted.

You have to hold down the left mouse button.

If you've not tried it, put Gullfoss on your reverb AUX channels. The more channels feeding it, the better.

W.i.n.n.i.n.g.

What settings do you typically use?
Cheers!

Depends how much you want to carve it out, I pushed it quite hard on a Nebula plate yesterday and it sounded great.

I've been using Gullfoss since it was launched mostly on my mix bus or when mastering, always lightly with TAME around 10 to 20%. I usually like what it does to the low mids but often after tweaking eq's and then coming back to gullfoss and bypassing it I find it add bit of harshness. Then I decrease brightness to compensate but still it feels more ''natural'' when bypassed. I know it depends on the material I'm working and maybe I'm not using it right but usually I start with it on and toward the end of the mastering process I bypass it and like it better without it...

Would this not then be a classic case of ‘Just because you have a tool,doesn’t mean you have to use it”?

I personally always decrease brightness quite a bit.

For those of you with Patchwork I recommend putting it inside that and assigning all parameters to Patchwork controls. That way you can adjust down to the .2 step. And use the mix control.

A nice setting with all controls taken into account including a touch of bias to the least high set of Recover/Tame, both filters used to focus the effect where needed... mixed in to taste 75% is great, will bring density and control to the mix without sounding too processed. Plus you can input specific values into the Patchwork knobs and get in between settings. If you have ever looked at the controls behind the GUI on Gullfoss you'll have realised that the GUI only displays the rounded whole number there's at least 2 or 3 more decimal places being given... to provide different results everything you use it.

With Patchwork you can use a more controlled, 'stepped' system. I love this for mastering.

Also always use the brightness control a bit and the boost control.

I used to reduce brightness but now prefer to low pass the top end.



Gullfoss can add a bit too much sparkle at times.

Yes! I purchased the Mac version many months ago in hopes that I would be included in Windows beta testing, which I've officially inquired about. Will that still happen?
