Voxengo Boogex

Boogex is a guitar amplifier effect plugin with a variety of sound shaping features for professional music production applications.  With Boogex it is possible to get a heavy distorted sound as well as slight “jazzy” saturation sound.  Boogex is also able to apply any speaker cabinet impulse response (selection of built-in impulses is available).  The processing latency is close to zero making it possible to use Boogex for real-time guitar processing.

Boogex also includes input gate module, and reverberation module derived from Voxengo OldSkoolVerb reverb.

Boogex produces a nice “minimalist” sound which may be a bit noisy at higher drive settings, higher frequencies can be easily suppressed with its built-in Emphasis EQ.

 

Voxengo SPAN

SPAN is a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plugin for professional music production applications.  For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.

SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your spectrum analyzer preferences.  You may specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum’s visual slope.  Beside that you can choose to display secondary spectrum of a desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum).  Spectrum can be smoothed out visually for an easier examination.

SPAN supports multi-channel analysis and can be set to display spectrums from two different channels or channel groups at the same time.  Spectrum’s color can be chosen to taste.

SPAN also features output level metering with adjustable ballistics and integration time, K-system metering (including calibration K-system metering).  SPAN displays level metering statistics, headroom estimation and clipping detection.  Correlation metering is available as well.
