Postby valhallasound; Wed Mar 26, 2014 5:17 pm ValhallaFreqEcho Open Beta for OSX and Windows (32/64-bit, AAX/VST/AU/RTAS)

Hi all,

I've been working on the 64-bit update of ValhallaFreqEcho off and on for the last few weeks (edit: YEARS). At this point, it seems reasonably stable. It's a free plugin, so this is an open beta.

Image

Changes since the old and crusty version:

- Updated GUI! Futura, resizable.
- Changed default knob motion from circular to up/down! I was young and naive in early 2010 when I last updated FreqEcho.
- 64-bit versions! The plugin now comes in 32-bit RTAS, and 32/64-bit VST/AU/AAX.
- AAX! I just mentioned that, but I'm a'gonna say it again.
- More sync delay options!
- Better parameter warping! on both the GUI and low level parameters! This improves automation, performance with hardware controllers, and so on.
- Installer!

The changes I made to FreqEcho aren't backwards compatible. For my commercial plugins, I always strive to keep backwards compatibility, even if this means keeping in behavior that I would fix today. For this freebie, I thought it was best to make it GOOD, as the old version really predates the commercial plugins in both chronology and quality.

The new version of FreqEcho is also Intel only for OSX. The Windows version will follow, once this version is debugged. EDIT: I have a Windows beta available now.

So, if you want to try the beta, have at it:

Feel free to post feedback in this thread.

Thanks,

Sean Costello

I'm not sure what the old FreqEcho sounded like, but this one sounds like maybe there's a phase issue? Sounds... off. On Logic 64bit AU.

Try tweaking the delay and shift controls.

It sounds like COUNTLESS tracks you hear in electronic genre...

Sean, two questions :

1) If FreakEcho-II is not backward compatible, will it carry a different ID ? (I sure hope so... that's what other developers do)

2) Is the first quarter deadline (IIR) for plugins release still on ? if so, is there a change in plan ?
The whole notion of Analog vs Digital emulation has long gone haywire...

Testing in PT 10.3.8, bypassed plugin, I get a strange sound, a kind of feedback.

D'OH! I forgot that the bypass functions have changed in Juce. I'll change the code tonight, so it will be updated in the next beta release. Thanks for spotting this!

+1 to point number 1. If just called FreqEcho 1.5 and given a new ID, then there's no worry about breaking compatibility in existing projects since both can live side by side happily. Allows users to transition any projects from the old version to the new one.

I had the same question regarding #2 also. Really looking trying out some of the new algorithms in the reverbs here in PC land.

I'll check into this. Honestly, it's been so long since I built ValhallaFreqEcho that I forget what the plugin ID was for this. It looks like the last build had "MkI" in it, so I'll leave that out this time around.

2) Is the first quarter deadline (IIR) for plugins release still on ? if so, is there a change in plan ?


Change in plans. Currently targeting end of April.

can I use this when I run Logic in 32 bit mode, or will I need to use the older version I have? thanks.
