From what i have heard teote is More of an eq balanciNg Tool (Similar to Smart:eq) whereas gullfoss‘ strenght seems to be unmasking and resonance taming (although teote claims to do the same).
Can anyone confirm this?
In my experience: no. Gullfoss doesn't do well removing resonsances because it doesn't do surgical cuts - it does wider band real-time processing. It's Soothe that does the de-resonance. I have both Teote (demo) and Gullfoss (own) (and I also have these other similar products: MSpectralDynamics, Unfilter, DSM, Trackspacer and Sugar). Gullfoss and Teote are actually similar in their top-line functionality but different the way they achieve it and their over-all sound. This has actually been covered in this and other threads.

Gullfoss to me works best as an exciter mentality. So you don't place it to fix stuff but enhance something already ok sounding.

can TEOTE be used to tame resonances? is there a specific algorithm in there somewhere?

I can't afford Soothe, and zero latency is very attractive, also the current 30% off sale at Plugin Boutique.
cheers

Kind of not really. It can but in broad strokes, much broader than soothe. But if you are willing to accept it's wider range of function in exchange for not as good resonsnace control, then it's a good tool to get. I opted to buy from Vonengo directly to take advantage of the multi-product discount and flash sale - ended up being 40-ish% off. I opted to get Shinechilla as well. If you only want Teote then yes PB is the best price I've been able to find.

Do you feel that using the "apply to range" function with the high- and lowpass filters, in conjunction with setting boost all the way off (i.e. to the right), doesn't give as much resonance control precision as you'd like?

Not trolling - genuinely curious. :D

It does, but it's inherently more broad than FFT based dynamic EQs.

It has 3-64 fixed frequency bands that are much more broad than FFT that are likely 512-4096 bands.

So it's not surgical, but still wide enough to take care of controlling resonance within reasonable scope (i.e. something like a voice with pretty equally spaced harmonics - it will tame fundamentals just fine)

I have Toete and I find it very good but I use it only as a reference if my track need more highs or low end.
