Tone Empire has launched a new audio effect plugin that offers multiple saturation modes, an envelope shaper and an analog modeled equalizer: Goliath.
The retro channel strip plugin offers three “colors” of saturation: Solid State (Silver), Tube (Gold) and Tape (Titanium).
Silver brings a clean style saturation, with Gold you get more grit and edge, and Titanium brings the tape harmonics and punchy saturation to your audio. You can go from very subtle sounding to edgy. Increase apparent loudness without raising peak levels, and make your sounds cut through in a mix, or add a nice warm glow. These 3 very distinct flavors give you plenty of tone control additionally with the “Input/Drive” control and the “Roof” control. Easy to dial in the sweet spot and details you want.
The Envelope and EQ become the final but invaluable piece of tone shaping tools. Looking for aggressive drums with punchy sustained sound? or hard edged “attacky” vocals. This section lets you mould the sound shape you desire using the “Motion” control going from “splat” to “sharp”. Thin out pianos, strings & guitars with presence and air, or thicken up synths, bass guitar, kick drums etc. Detailed tweaking allowed on this one to dial in the sweet spots. Blend in this processing with your dry sounds using the wet/dry mix control.
Goliath for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for the intro price of $49 USD (regular $79 USD). You can download a free 30-day trial version from the website.
