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
