ThrillseekerXTC mkII released

ThrillseekerXTC – bringing mojo back

ThrillseekerXTC mkII is a psychoacoustic audio exciter based on a parallel dynamic equalizer circuit. It takes our hearing sensitivity into account especially regarding the perception of audio transients, tonality and loudness.

The mkII version now introduces:
• Plugin operating level calibration for better gainstaging and output volume compensated processing.
• A reworked DRIVE/MOJO stage featuring full bandwidth signal saturation and a strong
focus on perceived depth and dimension. It provides all those subtle qualities we typically associate with the high-end analog outboard gear.
• Special attention has been taken to the mid frequency range by introducing signal compression which improves mid-range coherence and presence.
• Relevant parts of the plugin are running at higher internal sampling frequencies to minimize aliasing artifacts.

Available for Windows VST in 32 and 64bit as freeware. Download your copy here.

    Yay, great news! I really like how subtle this plugin works, its great for mixing. Cant wait to try the new version!

  2. Incredible work here. Bloody amazing sound. Have loved XTC since you released it all those years ago! HUGE THANKS!

  3. Thank you, thank you so much

  4. Fantastic. All the Thrillseekers are my fave Plugs you made. Thanks for your generous work

  5. Do we report bugs here? I managed to make it ‘give up’ by playing with the internal headroom control. It got super saturated then just cut completly out and the output needle disapeared! it stayed like that even after returning the parameter to normal. there was still input registering and the midband compression leds were pinned but complete silence on the output.
    it was using vst2 64bit version inside ableton 11.
    don’t know if it’s anything to worry about but I rememerer nastyVCS also cut during the beta. So not sure if related.

    I love your plugins! Would you ever consider making them in .aax format as well?
    If not, any tips on how to use your plugins in Pro Tools?
    Thanks,
    Kelvin

    Well.. In Reaper x64 (copy n’ paste x64 vstplugins folder) is not loading… 🤷‍♂️

  15. 64-bit plugins in cubase are recognized to me as 32-bit. I can’t use them. What can be?

  16. Just switching the DRIVE/MOJO section on seems to switch polarity of the output. Doesn’t really matter when using the MIX knob … however, some rather sophisticated setups might require to use DAW-controlled mix amounts (e.g. when trying to spice up and mix back parallel processed duplicates of the main audio), and then only 0% or 100% mixes sound right. Is that intended per design, or even inevitable? Would it be safe to simply use a polarity switcher as a workaround? Great work BTW!

  17. Still using all your 32 bit plugins for my mixes! Thank you for this and welcome back!

  18. Thrillseeker colouring the sound so gentle… Once again Thanks!

  19. Many thanks !!! XTC is one of the plugins that i use to most of my mixes, with Thrillseeker VBL. I am so happy that you made the 64 bit version !

  20. PLease release the OSX version!!!

    • Not gonna happen. They were developed in flow stone in his spare time. It’s a Windows only environment. Would take a serious amount of work to re write from scratch I think.
