TDR Arbiter is a frequency-selective spectral balancer. Acting independently of absolute level, this audio plugin makes an ideal solution for a wide range of typical audio mixing, restoration, and mastering challenges. Be it De-Essing, the attenuation of plosives, or a correction of broad frequency balance issues, the level independent nature of the algorithm smoothly achieves musically convincing results within shortest time, and maintains them through the mix.

The band of interest can be specified in the form of bell, flat top, and traditional shelving shapes. Maximal reduction range and reaction speed controls permit fine-tuning processing depth and timing. A set of harmonic generators allow to creatively compensate for any loss introduced by the filtering, extending an otherwise mostly transparent filtering process with a useful range of sonic alternatives.

The plugin comes with a modern, freely resizable full-screen capable user interface. A wideband spectral analyzer offers insight into the momentary filter magnitude and how it affects the signal from input to output.
