Soundtheory released its first audio plug-in, Gullfoss, on January 25, 2018, at Booth #14018, NAMM Show, Anaheim Convention Center, Los Angeles (Software NAMM – Level 1 ACC North).
Gullfoss is an intelligent automatic equalizer that uses Soundtheory's unique computational auditory perception technology to identify and resolve problems in the frequency balance of your signal. Adjusting its settings in realtime according to the audible features of the input signal, Gullfoss allows quick and precise fixes for issues that would otherwise be unsolvable or would require a lot of time and experience to resolve.
Gullfoss is an easy-to-use tool for everyone from the amateur musician to the professional mastering engineer. Its clean user interface offers a set of basic parameters that can be adjusted to improve the clarity, detail, spatiality and balance of a mix or recording in a matter of seconds. Gullfoss is even capable of fixing balancing issues between different sound elements without access to the individual tracks. The internal auditory model allows Gullfoss to make objective decisions about the perceived sound. As a result mixes processed with Gullfoss will generally translate more consistently between different listening situations.
Gullfoss, enabled by new patent-pending equalizer technology, processes audio with the highest sound quality. The equalizer is capable of changing its frequency response, at the highest precision, more than 100 times per second and without introducing audible artefacts or degrading signal quality. Together with the highly advanced computational auditory perception model that has been developed by Soundtheory, Gullfoss is, they say, the first and only product of its kind.
Gullfoss will be presented live at NAMM 2018, Booth #14018. Bring your own soundtrack for a personal demonstration and take home the result produced by their engineers with the help of Gullfoss.
Gullfoss is available for download at www.soundtheory.com. Currently supported machines run macOS 10.9+ and host 64-bit plugins in the formats AU, VST/VST3 or AAX. For a limited time Soundtheory offers an early access deal for $99 (regular price $199). A time-limited trial will also be available.
