An automatic amplitude wave-shape equalizer for LIVE or mixing/mastering use.
Otto normalizes audio automatically by re-shaping the wave-form to its largest possible size, thereby minimizing the amount of unused headroom.
It is not exactly a dynamic gain-stager, auto-leveler, compressor, DC offset remover, asymmetry remover, dynamic tonal equalizer or limiter, but those would be terms that are not too far off what Otto can be used for.
Technically it is a 32/64-bit VST2 audio-effect plugin mainly for DAWs and sound/video-editors on Windows, but it can also be used in a LIVE VST-host (for example with LIVE stage-performance audio, or with music/TV home-stereo audio)
A few ideas of what Otto can be used for: to balance dialog and sound-effects when watching movies, to avoid loud commercials when watching TV-shows, to balance loudness between songs when listening to music, to balance and maximize track-volume when mixing, to even the levels between songs when mastering a demo.
It is suitable for all music-styles (ranging from delicate classical music, over soft singer/songwriter or country, to hard-hitting techno, drum'n'bass and even hardcore gabber)
