Fuse Audio Labs launches FREE RS-W2395c EQ plug-in
Posted on: Friday 15th of November 2019
Developer Fuse Audio Labs announced the availability of RS-W2395c — an authentic (and free) plug-in emulation of German Audio Lab’s W2395c, a classic Baxandall EQ combined with a powerful mid-band filter, developed in close collaboration with Roger Schult, creator of the original hardware.
Transferring the circuitry and sonic character of analogue into the digital world after analysing the W2395c hardware in depth, the resulting RS-W2395c plug-in provides sweep-frequency control of the mid range combined with broad tonal shaping of bass and treble. The HF (high frequency) control lends a vintage Neumann EQ-inspired sheen, while the MF (mid frequency) control with well-chosen switchable Q settings is capable adding cut-through mids to snare or electric guitar, without sounding too harsh.
The LF can be switched from 80Hz to 110Hz, the HF from 2kHz to 5kHz, and the semi-parametric MF offers three different Q factors to choose from. The DRIVE control is a plug-in-exclusive extra (not present in Roger Schult’s hardware) for adding some grit to the sound.
“We are very happy that our friendship with Roger Schult has made this wonderful freebie possible,” says Fuse Audio Labs CEO Reimund Dratwa. German Audio Lab CEO Roger Schult adds: “I have to say I am really amazed at the quality of the plug-in version; Reimund has obviously put as much effort into his code as I did when developing the analogue hardware.”
RS-W2395c is available for FREE from Fuse Audio Labs’ website fuseaudiolabs.com
