Wes Audio have announced the launch of a new Eclipse edition of two of their flagship products, the Prometheus and Hyperion 500-series EQ modules. They have also partnered with software developers Slint and Spyrosoft Synergy to create a new GUI for the hardware’s companion plug-in.

Eclipse Edition

Due to customer demand, both the Prometheus and Hyperion modules are now available to order with a black faceplate for a limited time. Their functionality remains the same as the standard versions, both offering an analogue stereo EQ circuit which pairs with a DAW plug-in to allow for instant recall of settings, remote control and automation capabilities.

New Plug-in GUI

Along with the limited edition faceplate, Wes Audio have also announced that the modules’ plug-in counterpart has undergone a GUI overhaul, and now boasts a sleek new and intuitive interface. Rather than emulating the front panel of the hardware, the new version offers a graphical display and allows users to interact with the visualised EQ curve as well as the virtual switches and dials. Although it has been released alongside the limited edition modules, the company say that the updated plug-in is also compatible with the standard versions.
