ToneBoosters releases TB-Dither + v3.0.3 update

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

ToneBooster has announced the release of TB-Dither, a quantization and noise shaping plugin for Windows and Mac.

TB-Dither allows the design of your own noise shaping curve – as easy as working with an EQ.

TB Dither is a plugin designed to modify the bit depth of audio signals, for example when authoring a CD or for archival purposes, with minimum quality degradation. Such process typically involves dithering, quantization, and noise shaping.

TB Dither supports industry-standard dithering noise types such as RPDF (rectangular probability density function, 1 LSB wide) and TPDF (triangular probability density function, 2 LSBs wide). A GPDF (Gaussian probability density function) is provided as well.

TB-Dither features

  • Zero-latency processing.
  • Support of all sampling rates from 44.1 to 192 kHz.
  • Supports industry-standard RPDF and TPDF dithering noise.
  • Unrivalled flexibility to shape dithering and quantization noise.
  • Suports any bith depth between 8 and 24 bits.
  • Dedicated modes to listen to quantization noise only.
  • Advanced noise-shaping overload protection algorithm.

TB-Dither for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 9.95 EUR.

ToneBoosters has also updated it’s plug-in line to version 3.0.3.

Changes in v3.0.3

  • All plugins
    • Fixed a minor GUI memory leak.
  • Dither
    • First release.
  • Barricade

    • Mitigated a crash due to a bug in Wavelab when using EBU Loudness on stereo tracks.
  • Module
    • Fixed a bug that could result in inresponsiveness of Module.
  • ReelBus
    • Added ‘legacy’ saturation mode to simulate v2.9 behavior.
  • BusCompressor
    • Added channel linking control and stereo gain meters.
    • Improvement in transient detection/compression algorithm.

ToneBoosters TB BusCompressor

ToneBooster has announced TB BusCompressor, a compressor effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

TB BusCompressor is a very transparent, all-round dynamics processor designed to be able to handle everything from single tracks to complex, full mixes. Even with ultra-short attack and release settings, harmonic distortion is extremely low (often better than -150 dB re FS*), and CPU load is typically below 0.5% (depending on hardware).

Besides the conventional controls for threshold, ratio, attack and release, TB BusCompressor features a variable soft knee, a dry/wet mixer for New York / parallel compression, a dedicated ‘upward compression’ mode, and an auto-release mode. Furthermore, the amount of bass fed into the side chain / level detector can be adjusted as well in a dedicated ‘expert settings’ menu.

TB BusCompressor features

  • Support of all sampling rates from 44.1 up to 192 kHz.
  • Transparent compressor suitable for a wide range of audio material.
  • Auto-release mode, and variable ‘dynamic release’ operation.
  • Upward and downward compression modes.
  • New York style / parallel compression supported by integrated dry/wet mixer.
  • Very light on the CPU.
  • Visual indication of effective compressor curve, including effect of dry/wet mixing.

TB BusCompressor for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 19.95 EUR.

ToneBooster has also updates all plug-ins for version 3.0.

Changes in ToneBooster 3.0

  • All plugins
    • Complete GUI redesigns.
    • Variety of bug fixes, optimizations, improvements.
    • Major improvement on how plugin parameters are mapped onto automation data and external controllers.

ToneBoosters releases FlX dynamice EQ + plug-ins updated to v2.8.5

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 28, 2013 - comment 0 comments

ToneBoosters has released version 2.8.5 of its audio effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac, which includes the new FlX dynamic equalizer plug-in.

TB FlX (“Flex“) combines equalization and dynamics processing in one go. It works just as most equalizers; by moving 5 nodes along a frequency axis, a frequency-dependent gain is defined. In TB FlX, each node has additional functionality, including:

  • The ability to define a level input/output curve (or compressor curve);
  • Attack and release times; with classical or intelligent release curves;
  • Amount of stereo widening.
ToneBoosters FlX
ToneBoosters FlX dynamic equalizer – blending flexible dynamics processing and equalization in one optimized plugin.

FlX features

  • Almost 100 parameters to shape the sound in a clean and simple interface.
  • 5 nodes to control a frequency-dependent gain and compressor input/output characteristic at any frequency in the audible frequency range.
  • 3-node dynamics editor supporting upward compression, downward compression, expansion, and negative ratios. The compressor curves can either be a hard knee or smooth.
  • Each frequency node has its own attack time, release time, and stereo widening parameter.
  • Compressor release curves can either be ‘classic’ or ‘intelligent’ for improved transparency.
  • Intelligent widening algorithm – automatically disallowing out-of-phase signals at the output that sound ‘hollow’ and unpleasant.
  • Integrated output spectrum analyzer.
  • Spectrum editor and compressor editor with zoom functionality for microscopic fine-tuning.
  • Dry/wet control to blend between input and output.
  • Based on the VST 2.4 specification to allow compatibility with virtually all host programs.

Besides the new Fix plug-in, version 2.8.5 includes the following changes:

Changes in ToneBoosters v2.8.5

  • All plugins
    • Fixed GUI redraw issue for preset selection in some hosts.
  • ReelBus
