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.

Tokyo Dawn Labs releases Feedback Compressor II

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Apr 11, 2013 - comment 1 comment

Tokyo Dawn Labs has announced the final version of Feedback Compressor II, a free compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

The TDR Feedback Compressor II is a major design update of its critically acclaimed predecessor. The compressor is dedicated to the highest fidelity stereo program (2-buss) compression, but shines equally in classic mixing tasks.

Most modern compressors analyze the input signal to control gain reduction. This is known as a “feed-forward” topology. The TDR Feedback Compressor II, however, analyzes the output. This approach delivers unobtrusive and highly musical compression characteristics which mean the compressor is able to handle complex signals with ease.

Feedback Compressor II has been carefully tuned for intuitive and musical operation for almost every situation.

Feedback Compressor II features

  • Beautiful “Feed-Back Compression” sound and behavior.
  • 64bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations.
  • Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy, critical operations run up to 8 times the original rate.
  • Delta oversampled signal path (bit transparent without processing).
  • Three side-chain filter slopes: 3dB/Oct, 6dB/Oct and 12dB/Oct.
  • Super fast and natural sounding compression..
  • Independent release controls for peak and RMS compression.
  • Unique control scheme.
  • Crest Factor control.
  • Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus.
  • Delta preview mode. Allows to preview the difference between compressed and original signal.
  • Latency compensated parallel bypass (i.e. processing not interrupted).

Feedback Compressor II is a free effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

Tokyo Dawn Labs updates Feedback Compressor II to beta 8

Tokyo Dawn Labs Feedback Compressor II

Tokyo Dawn Labs has announced beta 8 of its TDR Feedback Compressor II effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

The TDR Feedback Compressor II is a major design update of its critically acclaimed predecessor. The compressor is dedicated to the highest fidelity stereo program (2-buss) compression, but shines equally in classic mixing tasks.

Changes in Feedback Compressor II beta 8

  • Overall CPU load reduced by ~30%.
  • Default Side-chain filter slope now 3dB/oct.
  • Small graphical improvements (better contrast).
  • Fixed a small drawing bug in the reduction meter.
  • Minor re-tuning of the 3dB/oct SC filter.

The beta is available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

Tokyo Dawn Labs releases Feedback Compressor II beta 4

Tokyo Dawn Labs Feedback Compressor II

Tokyo Dawn Labs has announced beta 4 of the freeware Feedback Compressor II effect plugin.

The TDR Feedback Compressor II is a radical revamp of its critically acclaimed predecessor. The processor elegantly combines the self-adjusting properties of feed-back compression with an advanced, yet musically intuitive control scheme.

Feedback Compressor II beta 4

  • Re-built the whole project based on the JUCE library (previously VSTGUI).
  • x64 performance issues solved.
  • Fixed a bug which corrupted the claim “Bit transparent without processing”.
  • Fixed a (practically irrelevant) bug related to an internal re-sampling filter.
  • Key Filter selection now via Combo-Box.
  • Smooth, fancy LED animations.
  • “Peak Mode” is now “Peak Ratio”, was moved to the right and has a new switch graphic.
  • Velocity based knobs/sliders.
  • “Jump to default value” now via double-click.

The new beta is available to download for Windows (VST). With the move to the JUCE framework, Mac VST and AU is expected in the near future.

Tokyo Dawn Labs and vladg/sound introduce Proximity pan/pot effect plugin

TDR / Vladgsound Proximity

Tokyo Dawn Labs and vladg/sound have collaborated to release the Proximity effect plug-in for Windows and Mac, as part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2012.

This plug-in is an easy to use distance “pan-pot” based on several psycho-acoustic models. The idea is to give mixing engineer a reliable tool which allows him to manipulate the “depth” of several sound sources in a straight forward and convincing manner.

Several models can be combined:

  • Distance signal delay by speed of sound.
  • Distance gain loss.
  • Absorption of high-frequencies in air.
  • Stereo width manipulation.
  • Proximity effect of virtual microphone.
  • Distance based early reflections.

All of them can be turned on and off to taste. Distance modulation options extend the creative possibilities even further. Units can be switched from metric (meters) to imperial (inches).

Proximity is available in 32 and 64-bits versions for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

Tokyo Dawn Records has also announced it is working on also working on a major “TDR Feedback Compressor II” update and a new “TDR Sibilance Controller” plug-in.

Tokyo Dawn Labs Sibilance Controller
TDR Sililance Controller vocal de-esser effect plugin.

This is a dedicated vocal de-esser designed for precise and unobtrusive reduction of offending sibilance.

The concept is based on accurate band extraction via linear phase filters (either bell or shelf shaped) and a highly specialized, level-independent sibilance detection algorithm.

Two modes are available, full-band and split-band.

Feedback Compressor v1.0.0 free compressor effect plug-in by Tokyo Dawn Labs released

Tokyo Dawn Labs has announced version 1.0.0 of its Feedback Compressor freeware compressor effect plug-in for Windows.

A carefully designed dynamic range compressor. The processor is dedicated to sum/bus compression and is the result of an intensive study about the musical behavior of the feed-back compressor topology. Most modern compressors analyze the input signal to control gain reduction. The feed-back compressor design however “listens” to its output. This non-intuitive approach delivers an unobtrusive and highly musical compression characteristic that is able to handle complex signals with ease.

  • Differential oversampling structure.
  • Internal re-sampling via high quality linear phase filters.
  • Advanced stereo-linking (reduces audible cross-modulation).
