Soundtheory tells us that the biggest update for Gullfoss so far introduces new features, an improved equalizer engine and a new plugin called Gullfoss LIVE. Here's their press release with the details...
Starting with version 1.9.0, Gullfoss now comes in two flavors. The established version of Gullfoss for mixing and mastering in the studio is accompanied by Gullfoss LIVE, which is optimized for low-latency situations like tracking and live mixing. At a latency of less than 2 milliseconds, compared to the approximately 20 milliseconds for the regular version, Gullfoss LIVE delivers pristine sound quality and all the same features. The sound gains a little more character as the low-latency algorithm treats transients differently. This difference also makes Gullfoss LIVE an alternative for mixing and mastering music styles with very pronounced transients.
With the new release, Gullfoss gains support for sidechain processing to enable stem mastering, content-driven ducking and creative sound-design. The EQ display gain scale can now be changed so that even the most subtle movements can be observed.
The new equalizer engine debuting with version 1.9.0 improves upon the renowned sound quality of Gullfoss. A new innovative algorithm delivers a smoother high-end and a warmer low-end that will satisfy the most critical listeners. At the same time the CPU performance is improved at very high sampling rates.
Soundtheory is the brainchild of mathematical physicist Andreas Tell, who has been researching and working with sound for over 20 years. Along with Managing Director David Pringle and Development Director Andreas Beisler, Soundtheory has developed exciting new and unique methods for realtime audio processing. Its highly advanced model of computational auditory perception opens up new possibilities of analyzing sound as perceived by human ears and of processing it without introducing any audible artefacts at all.
