New Version Of Tokyo Dawn SlickEQ


Tokyo Dawn Labs tells us that TDR VOS SlickEQ – Gentleman's Edition takes SlickEQ's concept to new heights and adds an exotic Tilt-filter flanked by flexible low-pass and high-pass filters. They say that five distinct EQ models provide a rich set of predefined EQ curves and behaviours for the three main semi parametric filter bands. Here's more details in their own words...

SlickEQ GE offers a switchable EQ non-linearity as well as six different output stages. These options offer subtle and interesting textures, from the typical "mojo" often associated with high quality analogue audio gear, up to more obvious saturation.

An elaborate auto gain option automatically compensates for changes of perceived-loudness during EQ (within reasonable limits) and a gain-trim feature helps controlling peak overloads with ease. The 64bit multi-rate processing scheme (a.k.a. "internal re-sampling") practically eliminates typical problems of digital EQ implementations such as frequency-warping, quantization distortion and aliasing.

Beside the primary controls, the plug-in comes with an array of additional helpers: Advanced preset management, a frequency magnitude plot, undo/redo, quick A/B comparison, copy & paste, an online help, editable labels, mouse-wheel support and much more. Finally, SlickEQ GE allows to exclusively process the stereo sum or stereo difference without external sum/difference encoding (see "M/S" microphony).
