NOVA GE is a parallel dynamic equalizer. Appearing in the familiar layout of a parametric equalizer, the plugin also includes flexible dynamics processing options allowing the coverage of 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 musical answer.
NOVA GE includes a total of six dynamic EQ bands, each with independent dynamics processing ranging from downward compression over upward compression, upward expansion, up to downward expansion (incl. gating). Flanked by powerful highpass and lowpass filters, the processor covers a wide range of tasks:
- Parametric equalization
- Dynamic equalization
- Frequency selective compression/expansion
- Multiband compression/expansion
- Wideband compression/expansion
In addition, an advanced “Smart Operation” panel offers a unique way of automating and orchestrating the plugin for spectral matching, resonance removal and much more.
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 signal processing. Elaborate equal loudness functions help finding the optimal setting without getting distracted by loudness differences.
NOVA GE also features all helpers and workflow enhancements you’ve come to expect in a TDR plugin: A preset manager, undo/redo, A/B, detailed documentation, copy & paste, and much more.
Note: The product video above does not reflect the latest version of the plugin.
I’d have no hesitation recommending the GE version to anyone looking for a dynamic EQFunkybot
The built-in spectrum analyzer and the excellent equal loudness functionality make TDR Nova an intuitive mixing and mastering equalizer for newcomers, as well as experienced users. The most impressive thing about TDR Nova is how easily it transforms from a simple parametric EQ into a super-precise dynamic equalizer.bedroomproducersblog.com
