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 list of changes in this version:
- Fixed a possible crash when pasting a product key.
- Added additional spectral profile settings.
- Added "Mid-Side Linked" routing preset.
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 note that for these settings to be precise, at least 30 bands processing is required.
While by definition TEOTE is a dynamic equalizer, its technology is solely based on multi-band dynamics processing. This allows TEOTE to have only minor phase issues, and to produce a subtle transient-emphasis effect associated with dynamics processing. TEOTE tries to make the program material follow the specified spectral profile, tuned to the contemporary mastering standards by default. It can be said that TEOTE “straightens” the frequency response, making further adjustments a lot easier; it removes a lot of repeating work.
“TEOTE” is an acronym for “That’s Easier On The Ear”. TEOTE is a serious contender in helping bring your music production to the next level!
