Dan Worrall looks into the new "Smart Operations" feature found in several Tokyo Dawn Labs audio plugins, and shares a few tricks and thoughts.
Smart Operations analyse the audio input's spectral properties to allow running advanced Operations in dependence of this information. The system internally searches for the optimal plugin parameter settings for the case at hand, and sets them accordingly. The operations cover a wide array of applications: Spectral matching against various references, detection and removal of static resonances, filter configuration tasks and more. Operations can be fine-tuned toward a specific frequency range and total extent of the effect (both negative to positive).
