Toneboosters Plug-ins updated to v2.8.6 (Win & Mac, VST & AU)


ToneBoosters has updated all its Windows and Mac OS X VST and AU plug-ins to version 2.8.6.

All plugins:

  • Added check marks to drop-down menus.
  • Added control and alt key modifiers to lock x/y-only movement for nodes.
  • Added snap to zero functionality for nodes.
  • Various GUI redraw CPU complexity reductions.
  • Slightly increased font size in almost all plugins for better readability on high-resolution screens.


  • Added output level control.


  • Modified GUI color schemes; filter section control colors are now context dependent.
  • Improved octave-based averaging in frequency analyzer.
  • Doubled frequency resolution of the frequency analyzer.


  • Fixed GUI display bug when automating input gain level.
  • Improved auto-saturation algorithm.


  • Added mode without peak hold on VU meters in realtime analysis display.


  • Almost complete redesign of the internal DSP core.
  • Added 30 new filter prototypes, including non-resonating shelving filters, spectral balance filters, analog filters, and many others.
  • Filters now have Q controls.
  • Filters can now be set to process in stereo, mid, side, left or right modes.
  • Automatic filter shape generation + visualization when in "auto node link" filter mode to give a smooth, interpolated EQ.
  • Added additional, more traditional controls (frequency, gain) to facilitate easier editing.
  • Improvement in spectrum analyzer frequency resolution – now features a 4096-point frequency analyzer with zoom functionality.
  • Soft/hard knee compressor curve can now be set independently from the number of active nodes.
  • Compressor nodes snap to X=Y for easier editing.
  • Compressor side chain can use stereo, mid, side, left, right, or side/mid for input level detection.
  • Added compressor make-up level control.
  • Added processing "amount" control for each filter section.
  • Context-dependent control colors to guide editing.
  • Larger GUI for easier editing.
  • Auto-phase option: equalizer phase automatically blends between linear and minimum phase for better transient response.
  • Note: due to the significant changes in this plugin, the current version is not compatible with its initial release.
