There’s probably not a smoother EQ in the world, the shelves EQ promises reliability, commercially sound operation and a sound that is more commercial than hollywood itself.
Being well suited to movies and mastering of commercial content, the shelves EQ is by far the best solution for affecting sonics in a careful way that VSTplug has to date.
That is to say, mastering EQ’s (like the VSTplug LA bands 3) can offer a smooth response, but might hinder detail to some degree, and parametric EQ’s can affect the sound, can shape the sound so prolifically that the sound has an un-natural edge; but in contrast, the shelves equalizer provides detail, vivid depth and richness that un-surpassed.
The VSTplug shelves is possibly the most ideal vocal EQ ever constructed; but perhaps it would be best used in tandem (two iterations of the same EQ on the FX chain. One for natural body and the other for detail ).
You have 5 bands to choose from, a high pass, a peaking or low shelving filter (band1) a peaking filter (band2) and you have the choice of a high shelf or peak on the high end followed by a low pass in case your ambience distorts the sense of intimacy or closeness.
The VSTplug shelves EQ is a windows only VST2 plug-in for 32 and 64 Bit VST2 compatible DAW’s.
+ V1.0: Initial Release
+ V1.2: Mousewheel support, Optimizations, More Presets
The VSTplug shelves is sold at https://vstplug.com, but to show some KVRaudio comradery, it won’t be sold on other sites.

VSTplug LA bands 3
The LA bands 3 is a fantastic EQ that can do anything that most graphic equalizers can, and there really is no difference from others out there other than maybe that it sounds nice and it is tuned well so as to adhere to commercial standards.
A windows 32-bit and 64-bit VST2 plugin, the LA bands 3 is a zero latency EQ that has 40+ presets of real-world EQ mastering examples utilizing some of the best Michael Jackson songs ever made so as to show the mixing potential of the equalizer:
Robert Bristow Johnson Filters
LA bands 3 sounds fantastic, using custom made RBJ filters. Like in the case of Image-Line’s famous Parametric EQ 2, the RBJ rarely esses and makes the difference which professionals demand for both vocals and master mixing.
This plugin is optimized by Le Attol (Robert Ellis Langford) meticulously so as to have less impact on your hardworking CPU.
+ V1.0: Initial Release
+ V1.1: Added HP and LP
+ V1.2: Added global sizing preset
+ V1.3: Improved Global Preset automatic resize feature and improved GUI
+ V1.4: Mousewheel support, Optimizations, More Presets
The VSTplug LA bands 3 is sold at https://vstplug.com, but to show some KVRaudio comradery, it won’t be sold on other sites.
The VSTplug freq is a great parametric EQ that’s able to do most anything with only peaking filters. More is planned for this equalizer. It was made for the most part as a test of functionality but will be updated to have all filter types (specifically the RBJ type “custom programmed by Le Attol”).
The Freq, based on a PhonicsAudio design’ www.phonicsaudio.com was designed and coded by Nix & Grymmjack.
The VSTplug Freq is basically a new skin of the same plugin but the new version will be a complete rebuild. Check out www.phonicsaudio.com for more information.
+ V 1: Beta Initial Release
The whiteblack is one of the better vocal processors on the market, however; its constraints are in the realm of phase cancellation due to the collision of both mid and side; along with stereo competing.
This beta however is coming along nicely, assuming that you can carefully work the controls the whiteblack works as intended; it’s merely the science of mid and side versus stereo that becomes an obstacle. A planned change will be the introduction of an algorithm which automatically avoids phase dependent on the state of the controls.
V1.1: Beta Release
+ Added design elements.
V2: Beta Release
+ Changed design elements
+ Improved workflow
+ Changed delay type to non-interpolated (compatible with all sample rates)
+ Added haas (selectable by band)
+ Added overload detectors (+2.5 dBFS) for every band
+ Reduced CPU load by 1.5%.
V2.2: Beta Release
+ Reduced CPU
+ Added high quality mid side option
+ nearly finished knob statistics.
V2.4: Beta Release
+ Removed code proving unreliable in 64-bit
+ Replaced graphical components unresponsive to the 64-bit environment
+ Finished adding live statistics to knobs
+ Changed color scheme for relevancy.
V2.6: Beta Release
+ Added attributed logos
+ Repaired x64 switches with low tech mixers for the time being.
V2.7: Beta Release
+ Removed mouse over knob highlight
+ Added tooltip function (will be adding extensive help and support explaining various methods of audio engineering).
V2.8: Beta Release
+ Improved sound design, added linear hp, lp to add color.
+ Re-designed side and mid so as to the reflect the popular style of of making side airy with careful filtering so as to make the effect “airy”
+ Updated new tool tip method so as to reflect mouse out in a more efficient way.
+ Re-arrange plug-in preset order
+ Reduce CPU usage
+ Replace terminology “hi-Q” with “HQ MS”
+ Adding language support (French, Hebrew)
[will accept translation donations :)]
+ Adding preset manager
+ Adding touchscreen support
+ Adding scaling to interface option
+ Adding mouse wheel support.
+ Add dynamic resonance changing upon amplitude for the stereo, mid side controls.

The LA school esquire is one of the better limiters on the market, yet it is not a brick wall limiter, instead it’s a limiter using a rarely found pumping algorithm designed to mimic sound with a linear decay (rarefaction). And this effect is only bolstered by the static ceiling (based on %).
+ Added LU detection (soon adding optional DBFS and RMS support)
+ Improved the behavior of the pumping limiter by individualizing the dB detector type to threshold.
+ Enhanced the levels of pseudo morph ism because it looks neato and keen.
+ Reduced CPU usage (thanks Cytosonic & Aliasant).
+ Changed design (thanks Robert for color advice).
+ New refresh rate algorithm reduces lag.
+ Reduced CPU usage.
+ Better Logo Aesthetics
+ Named Presets.
+ Better math (Now Using Ruby);
+ Peak calculation using slide and line primitive
+ Rough solution for attack and release now applied.
+ Plug-in preset manager (Will require installer)
+ Extensive youtube tutorials
+ PDF user guide
+ Upwards limiting
+ Rational Mapping of threshold and ratio;
(To include three decimal places in the first 5 increments – More control)
+ Mouse wheel Support

The LA bands 2 is a fantastic equalizer, exceeding the colour and quality of most any commercial equalizer on the market. Due to its superior construction, LA bands 2 outperforms and outshines the competition by being easy on the CPU.
+ Improved GUI and speed.
+ Improved FL Studio 12/20 Support
+ Removed Redraw Bug.
+ Fixed refresh Rate, reduced CPU use.
The VSTplug governor (32 & 64 Bit VST2 Win) is a simple way to change decibel levels, both in the sense of averaging the lows, and carefully controlling the amplitude of the peaks.
+ initial release
+ 64 Bit bug fixes
+ Algorithm definition and averaging changes.
+ Pumping mode (gentler reduction only)
+ LUFS integration for greater readout accuracy
+ dBFS / LUFS average LU and True Peak readings on 3 scales
