(October 25, 2018) Visitors to AES last week were able to experience Soundtheory’s Gullfoss 1.2.0
. The new version features a 100% increase in CPU performance, resulting in double the number of instances of Gullfoss running at the same time while taking up the same amount of resources. Additionally, the developers have added support for higher sampling rates up to 192 kHz.
The intelligent EQ Gullfoss amassed high praise at AES. Comments such as “I love Gullfoss” were frequently heard. One of those commentators was Alan Meyerson
, who told the team that he was their “greatest evangelist”. Meyerson is one of the great music scoring mixers for film, and who won a Grammy for his work on The Dark Knight.
Multiple Grammy-nominated record producer, songwriter, musician, and mixer Greg Wells
also stopped by the booth to greet the developers of his go-to plugin Gullfoss. He later talked about it in his AES keynote speech, which he summarised on Instagram: “Talk about next level..... the Gullfoss plugin was 14 years in the making. FOURTEEN YEARS. It’s a formidable plugin that is modeled after the way the human brain perceives sound. It was a pleasure to meet the brains behind the software. And Rick Beato!!”

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. Soundtheory has developed exciting new and unique methods for real-time audio processing. Its highly advanced model of computational auditory perception opens up new possibilities of analyzing sound as perceived by human ears and of processing it without introducing any audible artifacts at all. Gullfoss is the first in a line of products that employ Soundtheory’s technology and demonstrates that simplicity, innovative technology and incredible sound can work together in a product made for everyone who loves audio.
