TDR NOVA is a parallel dynamic equalizer. Appearing in the familiar layout of a parametric equalizer, each band also includes a full featured dynamics section allowing the processor to cover an impressively wide range of applications. Be it a master lacking density, the drum bus asking for more crispiness, or a sibilance problem in your perfect take: NOVA has an elegant answer.

A user friendly WYSIWYG drag and drop display paired with a classic "knob" interface gives quick and smooth access to the various parameters driving NOVA's powerful processing capabilities. With its four dynamic EQ bands and additional high-pass and low-pass filter sections, NOVA can meet the most exotic demand. Intuitive equal loudness functions help finding the optimal setting without getting distracted by loudness differences.

In practice, the processor covers a whole bucket of tasks:

  • Parametric equalization.
  • Dynamic equalization.
  • Frequency selective compression.
  • Multi-band compression.
  • Wideband compression.

Of course NOVA features all helpers and work-flow enhancements you've come to expect in a TDR plugin: A preset manager, undo/redo, A/B, detailed documentation, copy & paste, and much more.

TDR Nova is free. The improved "Gentleman's Edition" is available here.

After some testing this is my opinion on how TDR NOVA 2 is (I only tried the free version):

1) EQ.

2) Compressor.

3) Side-chain compressor.

4) Dynamic EQ (possible side-chain too).

5) Expander (fractionary ratios).

6) Limiter (Inf:1 ratio).

Regarding EQ and dynamics this plugin does EVERYTHING and it sounds freaking awesome (at least on Precise quality mode).

If you want Lookahead you can do it manually by copying the track, moving it to the left the ammount of samples you want the lookahead to be, and to use NOVA as side-chain compressor on the original track while it listens to the moved track.

I can't help but feel like I got an early christmas gift lol..

Pretty much my go-to EQ for almost everything I do. It has a great low pass and high pass -72 dB filter, possibly it's best feature; but overall, great quality and design.
