Looks sweet.

Looks, yes, but here we go again with no demo and no audio demos. Pass.

Didn't find SonEQ so producing of ecstasy to forever go on faith that I would dig every other one of his plug-ins, not even for $25.

^ Fair enough, your choice.

Anyway, anyone who _did_ take the leap of faith and buy Satson and find it useful (like me) might want to check it out.

Took me a while to find the actual "info" on the page, but what do we know:
Sweetone is pretty much a Tonelux Tilt "clone", both with tilt mode and "loudness" mode (the dreaded "loudness EQ courve" from old hifi amplifiers).


So now we will have three emulations of TILT:

Softube "Tonelux Tilt EQ" (the official emulation)
cross platform, 99USD Native - fixed frequencies, 6dB/Oct filters, 12dB/oct additional on HP


Sonimus Sweetone
cross platform, 25 USD - 2 selectable frequency modes, 6/12 dB/oct filter


Togu Audio Line USEq (formerly known as TILT)
cross platform 32bit, free/not supported anymore - no input gain modeling, variable center frequency and Q, bass lift mode



You can choose for yourself what you think might suit your needs. And Softube (finally?) has some competition.

Don't forget the preamp emulation, it's subtle but sounds sweet, hence the name ;).

The Softube plugin also features a 12dB/Oct filter for the High-Pass.

Actually, both Sweetone and Tonelux Tilt (Softube) feature the preamp emulation (MP1a).

Please don't take this in a bad way, but with so many plugs competing for folks' attention, don't you think a trial version / and or some audio demos might help those of us who don't want to take leaps of faith decide whether to buy?

^ Hey, I'm not the dev, just posting this FYI :-)

As I said, _I_ was one of the people who took a leap of faith with Satson.

There's a thread on Gerarslutz in the 'new product alert' forum where Diego has posted, you could mention it there. To be honest, leaving aside the demo issue, what would be useful is a quick vid of it in action to show what the tone settings do, as well as the more obvious HP and LP filters.

I was lucky to play with the plugin before it's release. :)
It's very cool and useful and it does sound sweet!
I can't believe how easy it is on the CPU for it's sound! :love:
