Voxengo TEOTE 1.2 Automatic Spectral Balancer

Voxengo TEOTE 1.2 Automatic Spectral Balancer Plug-In Released
Voxengo is happy to release TEOTE version 1.2, an automatic spectral balancer plugin for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST, and VST3 plugin formats, for macOS and Windows computers. TEOTE was designed to be a very useful tool for both mixing and mastering. It automatically performs such tasks like gentle resonances taming, de-essing, tilt equalizing, usually performed during mixing and mastering. In mixing, TEOTE sounds good on pretty much any material.

The new “Flat/Eq.Loud/EQL+Rock” switch selects an additional profile setting, which may be useful during mastering. The “Eq.Loud” setting applies a 2-2.5dB, 0.8-1 octave wide, boosts to 60, 1.57k and 9.1kHz spectrum areas. The “EQL+Rock” additionally applies a boost to 3.4kHz spectral area, which is often used in rock and metal music. When using these settings, a post-equalizer after TEOTE usually becomes unnecessary. These settings are best used for “Slope” values below -4.2dB/oct; for higher “Slope” values they may be excessive. Note that these profile settings may make the sound a bit “thin”, so they are not universally-applicable. Also...

Eventide TriceraChorus Classic Chorus Effect

Eventide Releases TriceraChorus Classic-Inspired Chorus Effect for Desktop, iPhone and iPadIntroduced in January for the Eventide H9 Harmonizer® multi-effects pedal, Eventide Audio is now releasing its TriceraChorus effect as a plug-in for Windows, Mac OS X and iOS. TriceraChorus is inspired by the classic tri-choruses and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s. It pairs rich bucket brigade delay-style tri-chorusing with another classic effect of the 1980s: Eventide micro-pitch detuning, which can be used to thicken the sound, to add static chorusing, and to spread the stereo field by detuning the left and right signals in opposite directions. Combined, these tools can create syrupy, smooth, and deep modulations on anything from flat synths and strings to dry vocals, guitars, and more. The TriceraChorus effect was designed to inspire experimentation with a UI optimized for live performance.

TriceraChorus has three chorus voices and three chorus modes. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for the Left, Center and Right voices for movement across the stereo field...

Eventide Generate Polysynth Plug-In

Take Chaos to the Next Level with Newfangled Audio's Generate Polysynth from EventideTake chaos to the next level with Generate, a marquee polysynth developed by Newfangled Audio and distributed by Eventide. Generate combines all the features expected in a first-class synthesizer with revolutionary chaotic oscillators to create beautifully complex pads, warm moving keys, jittery sequenced basses, out-of-control leads, and “oh my God” textures.

With Generate, what initially looks like randomness contains underlying patterns, interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization. Each of Generate’s five chaotic generators brings out these underlying patterns to create an oscillator that can smoothly fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between.
