Soundtheory Unveils GULLFOSS Intelligent Automatic Equalizer

February 21 2018, 02:10
Having introduced their first audio plug-in at the 2018 NAMM Show, Soundtheory is now shipping GULLFOSS, an intelligent automatic equalizer that uses unique computational auditory perception technology to identify and resolve problems in the frequency balance of an audio signal. The equalizer is now available at a special introductory price.

GULLFOSS works by automatically adjusting its settings in real-time according to the audible features of the input signal, providing quick and precise fixes for issues that would otherwise be unsolvable or require a lot of time and experience to resolve.
"GULFOSS is your own pair of Golden Ears", says Andreas Tell, Research Director and co-Founder of Soundtheory. "Not only does it solve a wide range of issues when mixing and mastering to help you get the best, most consistent sound possible, but it can also serve as a valuable resource to analyze your mixes and help you improve your craft."

Soundtheory emerged from a long term research project in 2016 and is the brainchild of mathematical physicist Andreas Tell, who has been researching and working with sound for over 20 years, and Managing Director David Pringle. Gullfoss is the first in a line of products that employ Soundtheory's technology.
While the technology behind GULLFOSS involves intricate analysis and complex mathematical algorithms, Soundtheory has created an easy-to-use tool for everyone from the amateur musician to the professional mastering engineer. Its clean user interface offers a set of basic parameters that can be adjusted to improve the clarity, detail, spatiality and balance of a mix or recording in a matter of seconds. GULLFOSS is even capable of fixing balancing issues between different sound elements without access to the individual tracks.
The plug-in applies automatic equalization in real-time using a highly advanced computational auditory perception model that makes objective processing decisions. This model intelligently treats sound elements in the mix separately, and the processing improves clarity, detail, spatiality, definition and presence, eliminating annoying resonances and cancellations. The process retains dynamics and reduces the need for multiband compression, creating mixes that translate much more consistently between listening environments.

This new patent-pending equalizer technology enables GULLFOSS to change its frequency response with the ultimate in precision more than 100 times per second and without introducing audible artifacts or degrading signal quality.
GULLFOSS is now available for a special introductory price of $99 USD (regular price: $199.00).
