Hi,

I've been using Nova GE a lot recently and it's an excellent plug-in. I like to use on the mixbus for tasks like compressing the Mid Low End and expanding the Side High End. At the moment I have to use two instances of the plug-in for something like this. Would it be possible to have the ability to set each EQ band to Mid/Side/Left/Right/Linked?

Cheers,

Chris

For mastering this is one of the reason I've seen some engineers preffer other dynamic EQs or even static EQs over NOVA. Fast workflow is very important to make everything fast.

what is wrong with using 2 tdr nova instances? one for sum, another for difference, or one for left, another for right?
Thanks

It's not bad when it comes to the sound but it's a hassle when it comes to workflow. Would you preffer to use 3 different EQs (Mid, Side and Stereo in this example) on the screen for a single track? Or a single EQ for the same job?

i agree that it can get cumbersome, but then again, i was never in need for such a drastical audio overhaul. I agree that it would be awesome to have like 3 instances of nova, but perhaps one should have ability to control all instances.. via api (sorry, i'm not an dsp engineer).
It would be cool to have tdr nova on every channel, and one instance in which you can toggle/switch every instance, hence it would more easier.. but it's a philosophy.. i'm not a designer, nor an engineer.. but it's a small hint from me. Cheers!

SlickEQ M can do it, but then you lose the dynamic ability.

It's rather confusing/ambiguous to show visual feedback for all these different dimensions. Nova uses a shaded region to show GR, while SlickEQ M uses shaded regions to show the difference between mid and side. It works well.

For individual mid/side processing I like linear filters best, so you avoid the phase difference. I think this is pretty much how SlickEQ M handles it, except with what CraveEQ calls "transparent phase."

Completely agree. Another vote for this feature request.

How would the visual feedback work?
