Plugin Boutique is offering a discount on the TDR SlickEQ M (Mastering Edition) plugin by Tokyo Dawn Labs, an equalizer designed for the audio mastering engineer that delivers exceptional musical flexibility and audio fidelity.

Behind an intuitive user interface hides as a staggering array of possibilities: A set of musical high-pass and low-pass filters including a low frequency “monoization” section offer detailed control over the signal bandwidth. Six powerful parametric filter bands give precise access overtone, timbre and the stereo image, and a sophisticated meta-filter offers direct and intuitive access to the brightness, hardness or equal loudness curve of an audio signal.

All filters except HP and LP operate in a parallel EQ configuration. The EQ bands, in particular, include an elaborate nonlinearity inspired by the musically beneficial side effects found in inductor filter technology. An effective auto gain mechanism automatically compensates for changes of perceived loudness while operating the EQ and last but not least, semi-intelligent signal analysis options allow matching the input signal’s spectrum against a pink noise reference or automatically setting the HP and LP filters according to the signal’s audible bandwidth.

The plugin is available for purchase for $25 USD until September 26th, 2021 (regular $50 USD). It comes in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats for Windows and Mac.
