Tokyo Dawn Labs and Variety of Sound releases SlickEQ (free AU/VST for Mac & Win)

Tokyo Dawn Labs and Variety of Sound have released SlickEQ, a mixing/mastering equalizer designed for ease-of-use, musical flexibility and highest quality sound.

Three (and a half) filter-bands arranged in a classic Low/Mid/High semi parametric layout are designed to offer fast and intuitive access to four EQ modes, each representing a set of distinct EQ curves and behaviors. An auto gain option automatically compensates for changes in 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.

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 more.

SlickEQ is a collaborative project by Variety of Sound (Herbert Goldberg) and Tokyo Dawn Labs (Vladislav Goncharov and Fabien Schivre).

Key specs and features:

  • Intuitive, yet flexible semi parametric EQ layout.
  • Full featured, modern user interface with great usability and ergonomics.
  • Carefully designed 64-bit "delta" multi-rate structure.
  • Three EQ bands with additional 18dB/Oct high-pass filter.
  • Four distinct EQ models: "American", "British", "German" and "Soviet" with optional non-linearity.
  • Four output stages: "Linear", "Silky", "Mellow" and "Deep".
  • Advanced saturation algorithms by VoS ("stateful saturation").
  • Highly effective and musically pleasing loudness compensated auto gain control.
  • Oversampled signal path including stateful saturation algorithms.
  • Stereo and sum/difference processing options.
  • Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management and more.

Price: Free. SlickEQ is available for 32- and 64-bit Mac OS X and Windows in VST and AU plug-in formats.
