TBProAudio has released DSEQ 2.0, a dynamic equalizer working in the frequency domain. DSEQ is removing digital harshness on the fly thanks to self-adjusting frequency bands.
DSEQ now offers smart A.I. functions to set up DSEQ even easier.

DSEQ can be used in all mix and master situations:
  • de-essing vocals
  • taming resonances in e.g. drum, guitar, vocal recordings
  • removing digital harshness
  • balancing the mix
  • de-masking frequency regions
  • support of pink noise mixing/mastering

DSEQ offers following features:
  • NEW: smart AI function
  • NEW: smart AI GUI page

  • full frequency range processing, 10Hz – 22kHz
  • NEW: 7 different quality modes: eco eco, eco, normal, high and ultra, ultra 2 and 3
  • left/right and mid/side processing
  • global slope for detector signal (e.g. pink noise mixing/mastering)
  • custom threshold curve
  • limit of gain reduction
  • compression control
  • automatic optimal slope parameter calculation
  • NEW: automatic optimal threshold parameter calculation
  • 12 independent pre-filter bands, analogue/digital style
  • side-chain support

  • multiple signal monitoring modes (pre-filter, delta, side chain)
  • multiple spectrum analyzing modes (stereo, left, right, mid, side)
  • perceptual loudness matching (powered by AB-LM Lite)
  • extended input/output meter, Peak/RMS/EBU/VU
  • narrow-band sweeping mode
  • sample-exact bypass toggle for all processing modes
  • sample rates min. up to 192 kHz
  • "real" over sampling, up to 4x
  • offline render modes
  • EQ cheat sheets
  • continuous calculation of the spectrum slope
  • precise parameter input
  • easy to use GUI
  • NEW: GUI resize up to 300%
  • NEW: many presets including smart AI setups

Just a few clicks to update (if you need/want the new features). I could count them for you :D

Congrats, Ultra 3 sounds so good!

The jump in quality from ultra 2 to 3 is very audible, I wonder what an Ultra 4 would sound like if it's even possible :o .

We will try Ultra 4, but we think Ultra 3 is the end of the story. The quality mode impacts directly the FFT length and therefore the latency of attack and release.

Release early, release often... Probably the most agile plugin developer on the planet :hihi:

TBProAudio has released DSEQ 2.0,
What are your thoughts on a min-phase version? To avoid a pre-echo...

Thanks.

DSEQ uses EQs with very high slope to dim resonances. Min phase filter would create large phase shifts, which would totally destroy the sound. So, no real option :wink:

... ah, the pre-ringing of LP filters: well, avoid taming directly the transients (low attack rates),use a lower GR factor and finally avoid high gain reductions.

+1, if DSEQ has to do much work, you've screwed up somewhere and probably shouldn't attempt to fix it with DSEQ :)
