entropy:EQ+ By Sonible Is FREE With A Loopcloud Trial

26

Get the entropy:EQ+ ($99 value) linear-phase equalizer plugin by Sonible for FREE when you start a Loopcloud trial.

Loopcloud, if you don’t know yet, is the most extensive sample library in the world, with over 4 million sounds.

It’s more than just a collection of sounds; it’s a platform that allows you to test and combine sounds before you buy, in ways others don’t. It also has a bunch of cool features and effects and works standalone or right inside your DAW. I say these things as a longtime Loopcloud user with few to no complaints.

A trial comes with conditions, like marketing emails up to 3 times per week. I understand why people might find that irritating, but personally, I don’t mind emails from Plugin Boutique or Loopcloud too much.

At a glance entropy:EQ+ doesn’t look too different from any typical EQ plugin. Along the top of the GUI, you have an 8-band linear phase EQ that works like any other. The difference is the Entropy feature, and that’s where Sonible has taken a less than standard approach.

There is an overall Entropy effect, and the 4 middle bands can be Entropy specific when that feature is switched on. The Entropy effect is either pushed up into the positive realm or pulled down into the negative realm.

When positive, it boosts or isolates the transients and atonal frequencies. In the negative realm, it’s boosting the harmonics and reducing the transients.

The amount, strength, and smoothing of the Entropy effect can be adjusting via 3 control knobs beneath the EQ grid.

One of the examples for practical use given by Sonible is when used on a track that relies heavily on the rhythm created by strumming/muting guitar strings. The muted playing has to enhance the groove without becoming overwhelming.

What I like about the Entropy effect is that you can drag it down to give the guitar more body, then activate one of the Entropy specific bands to pull it back up in precisely the right area. What it should leave you with is more body overall while the desired transients are still being enhanced.

It has a blind mode that removes the full spectrum, leaving just the dials, along with your ears, to get things right.

Entropy EQ+ is new to me, but it seems different, and I usually like different. It also appears to have a fairly wide range of uses, and I know at least a handful of them interest me. So, I’m looking forward to checking it out more.

  1. Hi James,
    Great article as always thanks for the info. Wow! The eq looks really cool.
    Hey, if its not a lot to ask, can you please pls provide me the coupon code for this, I already got Sonible Balancer for free last December and it works great for me, but I can’t avail the free Loopcloud trial because I am still below 18, so no card. Hope you reply. Cheers :)

  2. no probs, got it. PluginBoutique have also released an official code to get this plugin for free, for non Loopcloud users. Gonna play with with it later today :)

    • Hey,

      Thank you for the kind words above, and I’m sorry I’m late in replying. It seems like you’ve managed to get it anyway, so that’s awesome, enjoy!

      I’ll try to be quicker with the comments in future, and if I can help, I will :-)

      For anyone else unsure about already having an account or having used your free trial already, Tomislav is awaiting some feedback from Loopcloud. Hopefully, we can update you soon.

      Cheers!

    Probably me doing something stupid, but…

      Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering why I haven’t heard from Slate about this offer. I signed up two days ago and nothing. Logged into my account and there it was, waiting to be downloaded :)
