Description: A set of high-quality effect plugins from Sonible.
A new EQ dimension simplifies post-processing of the harmonic and noise components of your audio recordings – freely customizable in seconds.
Entropy:EQ+ simplifies the process of editing the percussive noise of drums, guitars and other plucked instruments and opens up a whole new world of post-production creativity for you.
* Frequency selective transitions/tonal balance
* Manage sound anatomy with surgical precision
* Improved speech intelligibility
Amazing percussion at the touch of a button
By detecting the various audio components of an audio track, entropy:EQ+ allows you to isolate individual drums in a kit or percussion group. This way you can, for example, improve the rim click or solo on the toms. A sophisticated algorithm recognizes even the slightest attack sound. The smart plug-in gives you the tools to manage selected frequency bands in isolation from each other.
Clear speech in any language
Entropy:EQ+ makes sure every word stands out in your mix from the original TV report track to the whispered ending to your new song. This is achieved by amplifying noisy consonants for optimal speech intelligibility. The plugin helps you simply and easily by highlighting the non-harmonic components of speech.
Strumming or muting the strings
Sometimes a recording thrives on the grooves produced by stringed instruments, whether that be the sound of an electric guitar plectrum or the rhythmic plucking of a violin string. In other cases, the same percussive noise destroys the harmonic sound of the recording. In both cases, entropy:EQ+ provides a convenient solution, allowing you to dampen or boost the rhythmic attack.
At the heart of frei:raum is a fully interactive equalizer with the highest mastering quality. Each band can be used either in a classic mode for manual EQ, or in a unique “smart” mode offering automatic detection and removal of problematic resonances in different frequency ranges…
One Step Closer, Please – Proximity Equalizer
Do you have the right spectral balance, but do some frequency ranges still sound washed out and lack presence? This is where the frei:raum proximity EQ comes into play.
With a few clicks, you can easily adjust the ratio of direct sound to reverb in any frequency range. Use the prxomity EQ to suppress reverb and flexible dereverb, or to enhance the natural “diffuse sound” of your recording.
Unlimited(a)tonality – entropy equalizer
Turn on the pickup sounds and play with the edge of your snare drum! Perfect, nice clean sound, but still not “tight” enough? Get your hands on the awesome new entropy equalizer! By separating tonal components (such as sustained notes) from inharmonious parts (such as drum attacks), the entropy equalizer can be used to freely adjust the tonal characteristics of your sound at any given frequency.
carefully crafted interaction
For all those who just want to rely on their ears, frei:raum offers a blind:flug mode (=blind:flying). The visualization of the EQ graph will be replaced with simple rotary knobs, and you can just listen…without distractions.
Everything’s under control
freiraum offers small indicators for each band and multiple solo and bypass options, allowing you to hear and control every aspect of your audio material.
An eq plugin that repositions sound sources in post-processing. Whether it’s music or speech, Proximity:EQ+ lets you edit sound spaces like never before.
* Change natural reverb
* Frequency selective dereverb
* Isolate and remove room modes
More freedom in post-production
Closer to the source
Quite often during interviews, the recording microphone was placed too far from the source; or the piano comes out dirty because too much reverb has been recorded. In these situations, the close:EQ+ function can bring the voice much closer and make a dirty piano sound clearer in post-processing.
Add space to the mix
Of course, it is also possible that the microphones are too close to the sound source. Then your mix lacks volume. Proximity: EQ+ smoothly moves the sound source away without affecting its original character. This makes your entire mix more transparent and opens up new ways to create sonic depth.
Optimal room acoustics at the touch of a button
Even if you carefully plan the setup and ideally position the microphones, the acoustics of a given room will remain as they are. Advanced close:EQ+ technology opens up completely new possibilities for correcting adverse room conditions in post-processing, while leavingpit sound completely untouched.

smart:reverb provides a personalized reverb by adjusting its processing to suit the individual characteristics of the input material and creating from scratch a range of styles to navigate through.
Reverb that matches the uniqueness of each creation
No disturbing resonances or dirty tails
Reverb that really fits – based on artificial intelligence.
With just one click, smart:reverb quickly analyzes the source material to create each reverb from scratch. By tuning the reverb to the spectral and temporal characteristics of the input signal, typical problems such as interfering resonances or dirty reverb tails can be avoided from the outset.
Rich, artificial, intimate, natural – and every style in between.
Explore Characteristics, Not Presets
smart:reverb creates a reverb based on the original signal rather than working with presets or pre-recorded impulse responses. To find the reverb style you’re looking for, look at its reverb matrix, where all possibilities match your input signal. Guided by descriptive properties, you will find what you are looking for intuitively and efficiently.
The best of both worlds
Stay in control
For ultimate control, smart:reverb gives you an interactive view of the anatomy of a reverb. Its detailed interface allows you to easily control the deep structure of the reverb, changing its frequency and time-dependent decay rate, as well as spreading or changing the density of the reverb over time.
