ToneBoosters releases ReelBus tape simulation effect

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Apr 02, 2012 - comment 0 comments

ToneBoosters has released ReelBus, an analog tape simulation plugin carefully modeled after legendary Japanese and Swiss reel-to-reel recorders.

ToneBoosters ReelBus

TB ReelBus is an analog tape recording simulator that aims at accurate simulation of all properties related to tape, including its frequency and level dependent saturation, inter-modulation effects, bias dependencies, tape hiss, asperity noise, wow and flutter, and clipping of electronic circuitry. It is especially suitable for bus processing (including the master bus) to subtly sweeten and enhance the sound.

TB ReelBus currently contains 7 preset recorder simulations, which can be adjusted individually by offsetting the tape hiss, asperity noise, amount of spectrum and saturation processing, and alike.

TB ReelBus features

  • Very low-latency processing (only 4 samples delay) as a result of analog design.
  • Support of all sampling rates from 44.1 up to 192 kHz.
  • Adjustable record level with auto level makeup option.
  • Accurate simulation of existing reel-to-reel recorders with different tape speeds.
  • Adjustable tape hiss and asperity noise levels.
  • Adjustable tape spectrum and tape saturation.
  • Adjustable wow and flutter strength.
  • Option to amplify bias strength for overbiasing.
  • Simulation of both tape saturation as well as analog circuitry clipping.
  • Calibrated analog VU meters.
  • Each and every processing element carefully modeled after analog circuits and filters.
  • Based on the VST 2.4 specification to allow compatibility with virtually all host programs.

ReelBus for Windows and Mac (VST) is available to purchase for 10 EUR.

ToneBoosters has also updated its effect plug-ins to version 2.6, featuring various improvements, additions and fixes.

ToneBoosters plugins updated to v2.5, TB OmniSone now available

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 06, 2012 - comment 0 comments

ToneBoosters has updated its audio processing effect plugins for Windows and Mac to version 2.5, including the release of TB OmniSone.

ToneBoosters TB OmniSone

TB OmniSone is a zero-latency VST plugin to (re-)pan sound sources, even outside the loudspeaker base.

It also allows for increasing the perceived ‘width’ or spatial extent, and depending on the spectral content, may allow to subtly modify the perceived height of a source. Simply position the handles to change the desired position of each input signal, and use the mouse wheel to modify the spatial width.

Changes in ToneBoosters plug-ins v2.5

  • All plugins
    • VU meter peak hold values have been extended beyond the visible range for more accurate peak tracking.
    • Various CPU load optimizations.
    • All GUIs have been enhanced.
    • Plugins are now compatible with OSX Lion.
    • No more PPC support on Mac.
    • Fixed mousewheel control of knobs with non-linear behavior.
  • Barricade
    • Added new auto-saturation module for better transparency and warmer character.
    • Added quantizer/dithering/perceptual noise shaping modules for high-quality bit-depth reduction.
    • CPU load reduction for true-peak / ISP detection.
    • Output gain parameter changed to maximum output peak variable for more consistent gain handling.
  • OmniSone
    • First release of OmniSone spatial image processor
  • De-Esser
    • Complete re-design of de-essing algorithm – please check settings for DAW projects created with older DeEsser releases.
    • DeEsser now functions indepedent of signal levels (as opposed to a multi-band compressor approach).
    • Added GUI elements to visualize the detected amount of sibilance.
    • Added control to change amount of de-essing independent from threshold/sensitivity.
    • Listen mode now only passes the removed sibilance as output.
  • EBULoudness and EBUCompact
    • Resolved plugin reset issue in some hosts when stopping playback.
    • Removed gating mechanism from ATSC A/85 mode for ATSC standard compliance.
    • CPU load reduction.
  • Compressor and EZCompressor
    • Added a new vintage/classic compressor mode for colored compression, especially suitable for buss processing and to glue tracks together.

TB OmniSone for Windows and Mac (VST) is available to download at no cost.

ToneBoosters has updated its effect plug-ins to version 2.3.

ToneBoosters was founded in 2010 and aims at the development of high-quality and affordable VST audio processing plugins. ToneBoosters represents a spare-time activity of its founder, Jeroen Breebaart, and reflects his passion for music, science, auditory perception and digital signal processing.

Changes in v2.3

  • EBU Loudness / EBU Compact: Algorithms updated to reflect the recent (2011) changes in ITU-R 1770, EBU R128, and ATSC A/85 (change in relative gating levels).
  • Equalizer: Added a control for logarithmic spectrum analysis. Power spectrum, left/right pan, and mid/side ratio can now be computed with logarithmic filters with any width between 0 and 1 octave.
  • All plugins: Several minor changes to improve readability of GUIs.

New downloads are now available at ToneBoosters.

ToneBoosters releases TB EZQ free equalizer plugin

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 09, 2011 - comment 0 comments

ToneBoosters has announced the release of TB EZQ, a simple, intuitive and effective audio equalizer with adjective labels that optimizes ease of use and workflow.

ToneBoosters TB EZQ

TB EZQ is a zero-latency, VST implementation of the work by Andrew Sabin and Bryan Pardo from the interactive audio lab at Northwestern University, IL, USA. They developed a method to automatically map common equalization manipulations involving multiple equalizer controls onto descriptive terms such as ‘warm’, ‘dark’ and ‘bright’. These descriptive labels can subsequently be placed onto a 2-dimensional space, in which each point represents a certain amount of ‘warmth’, ‘darkness’, and ‘brightness’. More information can be found in their paper.

TB EZQ consists of a static implementation of their results with fixed descriptors. With this plugin, common equalization tasks to manipulate warmth or brightness can be performed much more efficient than with common equalizers involving many controls that require manipulation.

TB EZQ features

  • Zero-latency processing.
  • Support of all sampling rates from 44.1 to 192 kHz.
  • Simple and intuitive user interface.
  • Based on the VST 2.4 specification to allow compatibility with virtually all host programs.

TB EZQ is available to download as a freeware VST plug-in for Windows and Mac.
