Joey Sturgis Tones has released Tominator, a plugin intended to treat cymbal bleed commonly found in close-mic drum recordings. While the plugin was designed with treating cymbal bleed in tom tracks as its name would suggest, the plugin can also be applied to other percussive elements with similar results.
Tominator uses a filter-based approach to treat cymbal bleed. Built on advanced, adjustable filter automation - users are able to treat bleed in a more natural approach than gating. JST says this approach solves the common issue of signal loss that occurs with most gate and expander alternatives.
- Eliminates cymbal bleed with internal moving filter.
- Internal automated filter for effectively removing cymbal bleed.
- Speed control for changing how fast filter works on your signal.
- Cutoff parameter sets where the filter will stop after the transient.
- Enables you to have more versatility when processing your drums.
Tominator was developed with the anticipation that users will be loading multiple instances, such as one per drum track. With this in mind, the plugin was built to be lightweight, using minimal CPU and system resources.
