Mouse over filter button in GR display and mouse wheel?

I'm not sure if it makes sense to add a "poor" static EQ to DSEQ, instead of using a separate pro EQ?

But we may think about adding something like an AI EQ matching thing ...

Yep. Same here. Actually Gullfoss is somewhat of a tilt for me. But not to exaggerate highs or lows, but to just balance everything on a Buss. I really like the two in combination.

No, never.

I'm often using DSEQ to deal with unwanted resonances. When doing this I often prep a pre-filter band around the problem ready for if I need to boost this area in the sidechain.

I've gotten used to using a spectrum analyser to confirm I'm in the right place. Yes, I'll figure it just fine by ear, but an analyser is like another opinion to quickly check I've pinpointed the optimum spot.

It seems to me, when in the pre-filter monitoring mode, a spectrum analyser on the graph would be really useful.

I see. We may consider this in a future update kfhkh

I agree rather than adding stuff focusing on what it does best is a better approach.

Next release of DSEQ will add 3 presets which help to balance the mix in similar way.

Amazing how often this gets updated.

Please consider an ‘in app’ update notification, I only ever find out it’s been updated on this thread.

We are working on this.
At least it has a "check version" function in the info menu.

Update to V1.6.0:
 
Update to V1.6.0:
  • automatic calculation of slope parameter (from current slope value and optional custom threshold)
  • presets to balance the mix
  • no meter reset after off-line render

automatic calculation of slope parameter:
We added a small button beside the slope parameter. It calculates the optimal slope parameter based on current spectrum slope (and - if present- custom threshold). So no more guessing, just set it with one mouse click. This is very handy if the custom threshold is different to the input signal.

presets to balance the mix:
We added 3 presets to balance your mix against pink noise (3dB/oct), brown noise (4.5dB/oct) or even further (6db/oct, e.g. voice). Load the preset and lower threshold until you get a reasonable gain reduction.
With the presets you can freely move between smoothing/de-harshig (high threshold) and sound forming/balancing (low threshold).

Hope you like it ;)

That sounds interesting.
I assume you can tweak it if you don't like the automatic setting or still just set as you can now in 1.5.2 ?
I will not be able to try 1.6.0 until tomorrow so just wanted to ask.
Thanks very much

Tweak of slope parameter is still possible, no change to 1.5.2.
With the button the optimal slope parameter is calculated just once ;)

Is there an option to adjust the width of the individual cuts? I'm finding the low frequency notches too wide.
In Soothe this is the global 'Sharpness' control.

Thanks

Yes, it is the control "Quality", next to OS.

Thanks, probably time I read the manual !

From my side, a variable control would be nicer than the 5 options (but maybe I'm nit-picking now)

We would do but parameter "Quality" impacts plugin delay reported to DAW.
This message causes the DAW to reset it´s internal buffers which could cause audio drop outs. So we find a menu better than a knob ;)

The fast way this plugin is improving since it was released is just unbelievable. Amazing. That's a world record for sure. It should be in Guinness book. Thanks.

denork 26th June 2020 08:42 PM

Without a doubt for me this is the plugin of the year.

Normally I try many plugins, I even buy them, and many end up unused or with very little use and I still use my usual ones, but DSEQ is in every mix and master I make.

My 2019 plugin was CraveEQ

So much for the rest...

Hello @ TBProAudio . Did you receive my e-mail about a bug if using the piano sound and custom threshold (hearable clicks/glitches)? If not I would repeat it here. That's a video showing the problem. Thank you for such brilliant work. :)

Thank you. As written in our e-mail we still waiting for a short wave file showing the effect ;)

Edit: As written in our email set GR strength to x0.5 and maybe don't push threshold too hard.

Thanks! Oh, I didn't saw your email response, my apologies. I will send you the .wav by e-mail.

cooker 27th June 2020 10:55 AM

My mistake was also forgetting the importance of the gr. str. vs quality.

I imagine totally avoiding those sharp highs correction by default would need quite more cpu, likely multiband'ing DSEQ internally.

Maybe default zoom setting lessened (from -18 to something like -9) and/or making default gr. str. from 1 to 0.50 might be a better starting setup.

Also, is anyone using oversampling?? I didn't do listening tests (would like to hear comments) but since using the gr. str. I didn't feel the need of it.
