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.

ToneBoosters TB EBULoudness

ToneBoosters has released TB EBULoudness, a stereo and multi-channel loudness measurement plug-in for Windows and Mac.

The EBU published its Loudness Recommendation EBU R128. It tells how broadcasters can measure and normalize audio using loudness meters instead of Peak Meters (PPMs) only, as is common practice nowadays. TB_EBULoudness calculates k-weighted momentary loudness (LM), short-term loudness (LS), integrated loudness (LI) and loudness range (LRA) compliant with the EBU specifications. Furthermore, true-peak levels (dBTP) are displayed as well.

TB EBULoudness features

  • 4 loudness descriptors available simutaneously.
  • Compliant with EBU-R BS.1770, EBU-R-128, EBU Tech report 3341, and EBU Tech report 3342.
  • EBU mode LUFS, EBU+9, EBU+18 and EBU+27 loudness scales.
  • True-peak (dBTP) measurement including oversampling and DC compensation.
  • Support of all sampling rates from 22kHz upwards.
  • Single plugin for stereo and 5.1 loudness measurements.
  • Based on the VST 2.4 specification to allow compatibility with virtually all host programs.

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