V-Plugs releases Emphasizer


V-Plugs has announced the release of Emphasizer – a powerful sound processor that offers you a unique way to re-sculpt the sonic character of your audio material.

EmphasizerV-Plugs' describes Emphasizer as "the cheeky young brother of the equalizer, and anyone who has ever used an EQ will find Emphasizer very easy to operate. Yet, soon after hearing it in action; you will notice that the Emphasizer is quite a different creature, with character and charm of its own".

Unlike the standard equalizer, Emphasizer does not directly boost or attenuate a band of frequencies. Instead it uses V-Plugs new Selective Dynamic Manipulation technology (SDM) to bring presence and emphasize certain sound elements. The difference in sound and performance between Emphasizer and a standard EQ becomes dramatic when you're feeding it with rhythmic audio material. When treating a drum loop, you can emphasize and bring out the snare or the Hi-hat, when processing an acoustic guitar you can get more focus on the finger noise, or enhance the pick sound.

Emphasizer sounds great on vocals, acoustic and electronic sources; and will add presence and character to anything you throw into it.


  • Unique powerful tool for tone shaping.
  • Support for sampling rates of up to 192 kHz.
  • Based on V-Plugs SDM Technology.
  • Three operation modes for different tone shaping missions.
  • Two filter types with two filter algorithms.
  • A/B comparison.
  • Very efficient processing, optimized for native processors.

Emphasizer is available now as a VST effect plug-in for Windows and costs €59.
