Tokyo Dawn Labs releases TDR Kotelnikov compressor plugin

Tokyo Dawn Labs has announced the release of TDR Kotelnikov, a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility.

Tokyo Dawn Labs TDR Kotelnikov

As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.

With a sonic signature best described as “stealthy”, Kotelnikov has the ability to manipulate the dynamic range by dramatic amounts, while carefully preserving the original tone, timbre and punch of a musical signal. As such, it is perfectly suited to stereo bus compression as well as other critical applications.

The “Gentleman’s Edition” (GE) adds several improvements to the standard edition’s feature set. The most obvious being an intuitive access to various equal loudness workflows, the ability to specify ratio in a frequency dependent manner, as well as a powerful sidechain high-pass filter allowing continuously variable access over slope and frequency. The Yin/Yang functions allow manipulating the harmonic pattern produced during compression, and a new “insane” quality mode increases processing fidelity even further.

Kotelnikov does not try to emulate any previously available device. The concept is a proud digital processor, it is the original!

TDR Kotelnikov features

  • 64bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations.
  • Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy.
  • “Delta” oversampled signal path (bit transparent at 0dB gain reduction).
  • Super fast, yet natural sounding compression.
  • Control scheme based on “Crest factor”, offering independent release controls for peak and RMS events.
  • Frequency dependent ratio.
  • Flexible sidechain highpass filter offering continuously variable control over slope and frequency.
  • Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus.
  • Delta preview mode to preview the difference between compressed and original signal.
  • Equal loudness latency compensated bypass (processing doesn’t interrupt).
  • Extensive documentation.

TDR Kotelnikov standard edition is available to download for free (VST/AU); the Gentleman’s Edition can be purchased directly from Tokyo Dawn for 40 EUR.

Tokyo Dawn Records & Variety of Sound launch SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 01, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Tokyo Dawn Records and Variety of Sound have released SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition, an equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

TDR VOS SlickEQ - Gentleman's Edition

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. Five distinct EQ models provide a rich set of predefined EQ curves and behaviours for the three main semi parametric filter bands.

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.

SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition features

  • Modern user interface with outstanding usability and ergonomics.
  • Carefully designed 64bit “delta” multi-rate structure.
  • Three semi-parametric filter bands, each with two shape options.
  • Five distinct EQ models: American, British, German, Soviet and Japanese.
  • Low band offers an optional phase-lag able to delay low frequencies relative to higher frequencies.
  • High pass filter with optional “Bump” mode.
  • Low pass filter with two different slopes (6dB/Oct and 12dB/Oct).
  • Parametric Tilt filter with optional “V” mode..
  • Six output stages: Linear, Silky, Mellow, Deep, Excited and Toasted.
  • Advanced saturation algorithms by VoS (“Stateful saturation”).
  • Highly effective loudness compensated auto gain control.
  • Stereo, mono and sum/difference (mid/side) processing options.
  • Frequency magnitude plot.
  • Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management and more.

SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for 30 EUR.

TDR VOS SlickEQ updated to v1.0.1

Tokyo Dawn Records and Variety of Sound have released version 1.0.1 of SlickEQ, a free mixing/mastering equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

SlickEQ

Three (and a half) filter-bands arranged in a classic Low/Mid/High semi-parametric layout offer fast and intuitive access to four distinct EQ modes, each representing a set of distinct EQ curves and behaviors. An elaborate auto gain option automatically compensates for changes of perceived loudness during EQ operation. Optionally, SlickEQ allows to exclusively process either the stereo sum or stereo difference (i.e. “stereo width”) without additional sum/difference encoding.

Changes in SlickEQ v1.0.1

  • New AAX Editions (experimental, Win32 AAX is not functional)
  • Performance optimizations (+30% in some cases)
  • Value-displays now accept “,” as decimal separator (in addition to “.”)
  • Fixed rare denormal issues.
  • User presets slots increased to 10.
  • On a Mac, short-cut labels show “Cmd” instead of “Ctrl”.
  • Preset code now uses the Plugin-name as root tag (the old format is still supported)
  • Show parameter units in GUI-less mode.
  • Fix in mac install script bug which prevented the creation of user presets.

The plugin is available as freeware for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX).

Tokyo Dawn Records release SlickEQ plugin

Tokyo Dawn has announced the release of SlickEQ, a mixing/mastering equalizer designed for ease of use, musical flexibility and impeccable sound, developed in collaboration with Variety Of Sound.

TDR / VOS SlickEQ

Three (and a half) filter-bands arranged in a classic Low/Mid/High semi parametric layout offer fast and intuitive access to four distinct EQ modes, each representing a set of distinct EQ curves and behaviors. An elaborate auto gain option automatically compensates for changes of perceived loudness during EQ operation. Optionally, SlickEQ allows to exclusively process either the stereo sum or stereo difference (i.e. “stereo width”) without additional sum/difference encoding.

In order to warm up the material with additional harmonic content, SlickEQ offers a switchable EQ non-linearity and an output stage with 3 different saturation models. These options are meant to offer subtle and interesting textures, rather than obvious distortion. The effect is made to add the typical “mojo” often associated with classy audio gear.
An advanced 64bit multirate processing scheme practically eliminates typical problems of digital EQ implementations such as frequency-warping, quantization distortion and aliasing.

SlickEQ features

  • Intuitive, yet flexible semi parametric EQ layout.
  • Full featured, modern user interface with outstanding usability and ergonomics.
  • Carefully designed 64bit “delta” multi-rate structure.
  • Three EQ bands with additional 18dB/Oct high-pass filter.
  • Four distinct EQ models: “American”, “British”, “German” and “Soviet” with optional non-linearity.
  • Four output stages: “Linear”, “Silky”, “Mellow” and “Deep”.
  • Advanced saturation algorithms by VoS (“stateful saturation”).
  • Highly effective and musically pleasing loudness compensated auto gain control.
  • Oversampled signal path including stateful saturation algorithms.
  • Stereo and sum/difference processing options.
  • Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management and more.

SlickEQ is available as a free effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU). VST3 and AAX formats will follow later.
