NOVA is a parallel dynamic equalizer. Appearing in the familiar layout of a parametric equalizer, each band also includes a full featured dynamics section allowing the processor to cover 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 answer. 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 processing capabilities. With its four dynamic EQ bands and additional high-pass and low-pass filter sections, NOVA can meet the most exotic demand. Intuitive equal loudness functions help finding the optimal setting without getting distracted by loudness differences. In practice, the processor covers a whole bucket of tasks:

  • Parametric equalization
  • Dynamic equalization
  • Frequency selective compression
  • Multi-band compression
  • Wideband compression
Of course NOVA 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.


Dynamic EQ plug?

Yes. Many. Start with TDR Nova (free) if you like it, there is a great for-pay upgrade. Hofa is quite powerful here too. AA is bringing out Cobalt soon that may be a stunner by the looks of it. But again, before paying anything try the free Nova. It is truly world class.

Who Uses Plugin Alliance?

...for it, but not the extremely wide variety of curves that bx_dynEQ brings. I couldn't find any info on the TDR Nova's side chain filtering abilities. Also, I don't think they have the two knobs I mentioned? I'd say bx_dynEQ is still unique. However, If you only want to duck a bit of bass with...
