What happens when a theoretical physicist decides to design and build an EQ plug-in? The answer is Gullfoss, the first piece of software from new company Soundtheory, which is based on a computational auditory perception model and is described as a form of AI that dynamically analyses and corrects your signal. Gullfoss transparently changes its’ frequency response more than 100x a second whilst leaving the perceived dynamics untouched and without introducing audible artefacts. Although on the surface it looks a lot like a form of dynamic EQ that’s based on a pink noise curve, there’s actually a lot more complex processing going on under the hood.

About MusicTech

He’s the man who revolutionised modern film scores with a creative approach to music-making, sonic experimentation and sound utilisation that helps some of the biggest directors to tell their stories. This month we’re overwhelmingly honoured to speak to one of the greatest composers on the planet: Hans Zimmer. In our ten-page interview we talk to Hans about his recent work with Spitfire Audio – co-creating a remarkable assortment of production and studio tools – as well as his incredible career in soundtracking. Elsewhere this issue, Dave Gale takes us through the legacy of the vocoder, we report on this year’s Superbooth show in Berlin and speak to its progenitor Andreas Schneider about his views on modular synthesis and its integral place in the music technology world. We’ve also got our usual tutorials, tips and reviews. Enjoy the issue!
