TDR VOS SlickEQ is a mixing/mastering equalizer
designed for ease of use, musical flexibility and
Three (and a half) filter-bands arranged in a
classic Low/Mid/High semi-parametric layout offer
fast and intuitive access to four distinct EQ modes,
each representing a set of distinct EQ curves and
behaviors. An elaborate auto gain option
automatically compensates for changes of perceived
loudness during EQ operation. Optionally, SlickEQ
allows to exclusively process either the stereo sum
or stereo difference (i.e. “stereo width”) without
additional sum/difference encoding.
In order to warm up the material with additional
harmonic content, SlickEQ offers a switchable EQ
non-linearity and an output stage with 3 different
saturation models. These options are meant to offer
subtle and interesting textures, rather than obvious
distortion. The effect is made to add the typical
“mojo” often associated with classy audio gear.
An advanced 64bit multirate processing scheme
practically eliminates typical problems of digital
EQ implementations such as frequency warping,
quantization distortion and aliasing
Beside the primary controls, the plug-in comes with
an array of additional helpers: Advanced preset
management, undo/redo, quick A/B comparison, copy &
paste, an online help, editable labels, mouse-wheel
support and much more.
SlickEQ is a collaborative project by Variety of
Sound (Herbert Goldberg) and Tokyo Dawn Labs (Vladislav
Goncharov and Fabien Schivre).
