  • Instant enhancement for virtually any type of audio material
  • 3 different processing modes
  • Target parameter sets the relative frequency range.
  • Character parameter sets the amount of characterization.
  • 3 different meters: input level, output level, and amount of characterization.
  • Extremely simple to use
  • Patent-pending Noveltech IAF processing engine
  • Support for all major Plug-In formats on Mac and PC

Add presence, air and crispness to your recordings and mixes:
No matter, if you want to beef up a drum sound, inject more crispness into a guitar track or enhance a full mix: CHARACTER™ instantly increases the definition of your recordings. The dynamic process automatically adjusts complex sets of parameters rather than only statically boosting e.g. one specific frequency region. This revolutionary approach will deliver you with great results in realtime, requiring only three intuitive user parameters to control the process!

User Interface Controls

Input gain
Cut/Boost your input signal (-48..+6dB)

Output gain
Cut/Boost your output signal (-48..+6dB)

Character
Amount of character signal being added to the boosted input signal (0..100%)

Target
The target scale from 0 to 100 does not represent absolute frequency.
It represents the relative position in the full frequency range of the input signal at the current time instant.

Mode
Mode 1 is optimized for percussive instruments and vocals.
Mode 2 is optimized for guitars and synths.
Mode 3 is optimized for bass guitar and pads.

Input Clip/Output Clip
Red LEDs start to illuminate when input/output signals clip.

Character Meter
Measures the amount of characterization

Presets
There are 17 presets built into the main window.
You can select them but not alter them. You can store new presets via your host software easily though.

A/B
You can compare two different Character settings with the A/B switches.
Any changes you make will be stored automatically in the Setting you are using.

Operation

CHARACTER™ intelligently identifies and enhances the characteristics in audio material that are pleasing to the human ear. The Plug-In's algorithm is based on Noveltech’s patented Intelligent Adaptive Filtering (IAF) technology: The processing affects both, the input material's frequency response and its dynamic properties in a highly time-varying sense. This will deliver extremely natural-sounding results, not possible with conventional processors.

It might feel like it at times, but please keep in mind, that CHARACTER™ doesn’t perform magic or miracles: It can only emphasize characteristics that are present in your source material already.

System Requirements

    “Who cares how the vox sound like when you can go crazy with the filters and make cool sounding edit bits on the stereo master file with this beast! : ) Well, ok, I did use it all over the vox and other stuff of my album ‘Label This!’. Brilliant!”
