elysia has released the niveau plug-in in RTAS, VST and AU formats with installers for Mac OS and Microsoft Windows. Here's what they have to say about it...
niveau is the filter section of the mpressor as a free plugin. This filter is a specialist in changing the overall sonic character of a signal. It features two comprehensive controllers and is capable of producing convincing results very fast. Whenever a classic shelving filter would be too limited and a fully parametric filter would be too much, the niveau filter is a worthwhile alternative.
Its main function is to change the proportions between high and low frequencies. The principle is quite similar to a pair of scales: Dependent on the gain setting around a variable center frequency, the high frequencies are boosted whereas the low frequencies are attenuated (or vice versa) at the same time.
The center frequency can be shifted continuously between 26 Hz and 2.2 kHz or between 260 Hz and 22 kHz respectively (when the x10 switch is activated). The characteristics of the filter change in the extreme positions of the EQ Gain controller: the fully counter-clockwise setting will produce a low pass filter; fully clockwise position will result in a high pass filter.
The niveau filter plugin is available in RTAS, VST and AU formats with installers for Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
Elysia have also released version 1.0.3 of the mpressor plug-in for all existing formats. The main improvements of this free update are a now switchable noise floor, a corrected oversampling behavior of the niveau filter and a new Venice installer.
