LVC-Audio - Toned (Free Mastering Plugin)

Toned is a specialized tone-shaping plugin by LVC-Audio with analog modeling.

It is designed primarily for use in the mastering process or on two-track audio busses. Toned uses two distinct equalization processes: a three-band tone-shaping matrix, and a specially designed high pass (HP) filter.

The three-band tone-shaping matrix uses a crossover-style filter bank of first-order filters (-6dB per octave). This type of equalization produces very gentle and broad filtering, with minimal alteration of phase. Very wide boosts and cuts can be accomplished while still sounding natural. This style of equalization also mimics some of the interactions between frequency bands that are commonly found in passive analog EQs and analog tone controls. The tone-shaping matrix can be applied to stereo channels, or specifically to the mid or side channel. Additionally, Toned can be switched to use a two-band matrix.

The HP filter is specifically designed for accurately adjusting the low/sub-bass energy. The filter has selectable Q and roll-off. The scale of the HP controls is specific to low bass and ranges from 10 Hz to 50 Hz (with accuracy to 0.01 Hz). Just like the tone controls, the HP filter can be applied to the stereo channels, or specifically target the mid or side channel.

In addition to all of the tone and HP filter controls, Toned also includes an analog modeling engine to simulate the sound of hardware devices. The Toned analog sound consists of numerous parameters to simulate the unique frequency characteristics, saturation, self-noise, and other nuances of high-quality analog equipment. There is also a feedback control to simulate the effect of using negative feedback within an analog amplifier path.

Key Features:

  • Delay and phase compensated mix control.
  • Adjustable input and output metering with peak and loudness meters.
  • Internal 64-bit precision with 2x fixed oversampling rate.
  •  Knob controllers with fine- and superfine- control, and built-in A-B comparison.

System Requirements:

  • Windows: VST, VST3, RTAS, and AAX plugin formats. Toned requires Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 machines with a processor that supports SSE2 (AMD or Intel processor from around 2004 or later).
  • OS X: AU, VST, VST3, RTAS, and AAX plugin formats. Toned requires OS X 10.5 or later, and an Intel Core2Duo processor (or better).
