Voxengo's sub-frequency generator plug-in released - Press Release
Aug 8, 2005: With the introduction of a new PC VST plug-in LF-Max--which is now available for download--Voxengo continues development of tools designed to perform low-frequency adjustments.
The main function of LF-Max is to add sub low-frequency content to the program material and to the individual mix tracks. Beside this it features distortion module like the one found in Voxengo LF-Punch plug-in. Signal flow is different from LF-Punch, though. LF-Punch processes low-frequency band "in-place" while LF-Max mixes distorted signal result with the original low-frequency signal.
Internally, LF-Max produces three signals: the first one is the original low-frequency signal which is extracted by means of an adjustable crossover filter; the second one is the distorted signal which is generated by applying distortion to the original low-frequency signal; and the third signal is the sub-frequency signal which is synthesized from the original low-frequency signal. These signals can then be mixed together in the desired proportion.
LF-Max also reproduces finite word-length effects on all processing stages of the plug-in (but without any kind of clipping occuring). Theoretically, plug-in should have the flavor of outboard 24-bit DSP processors which is usually subjectively considered by audio engineering professionals as "better sounding".
Voxengo LF-Max features:
- Sub frequency generator
- Distortion module
- Two distortion modes
- Distortion, sub and original signal blending
- FX monitoring switch
- "A-to-B" comparisons
- Mono-to-Stereo, Stereo-to-Stereo processing
- All sample rates supported
- 24-bit DSP chip imitation
- Native assembler DSP code
LF-Max is available for purchase on-line for the introductory price of USD 49.95. LF-Max can be also purchased as a part of a plug-in bundle together with LF-Punch plug-in for USD 89.95. For more information and downloads please visit the Voxengo web site: http://www.voxengo.com.
