Tokyo Dawn Labs has introduced DeEdger, an audio effect plugin from Ohlhorst Digital that is capable of reducing the hardness of audio signals without negatively altering the original signal qualities.
The plugin operates in a threshold free manner, thus can comfortably handle any input signal level, type, and dynamic range. Where other plugins might under or over process, DeEdger only applies processing if any hardness is detected. Once detected, the hardness will be smoothed with remarkable elegance. After its initial setup, DeEdger can be left in a “set and forget” configuration without further attention.
Intricate time and frequency dependent mechanisms allow DeEdger to provide a very transparent process throughout. The initial concept, developed by a professional mastering engineer, focused on the demands of modern audio mastering and has also turned out to be equally useful for mixing.
- Control the hardness of audio material while preserving dynamic impact and musicality.
- Suitable for complex stereo material, including individual tracks and subgroups.
- Low CPU load.
- Intuitive user interface.
- Set and forget.
DeEdger is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX), priced at 100 EUR.
