Our audio plugins are based on more than a decade of scientific research and product development in the areas of digital signal processing and auditory perception.
We combine advanced signal processing techniques and highly-optimized cross-platform implementations with simple-to-use interfaces to optimize your workflow.
We strive for both affordability as well as quality rather than settling for compromises and trade-offs, introducing professional-grade products to a broad range of users.
ToneBoosters has released TB Dither and updated all its Windows and Mac OS X VST and AU plug-ins to version 3.0.3.
TB Dither is a plugin designed to modify the bit depth of audio signals, for example when authoring a CD or for archival purposes, with minimum quality degradation. Such process typically involves dithering, quantization, and noise shaping. TB Dither supports industry-standard dithering noise types such as RPDF (rectangular probability density function, 1 LSB wide) and TPDF (triangular probability density function, 2 LSBs wide). A GPDF (Gaussian probability density function) is provided as well.
TB Dither’s uniqueness lies in the flexibility to shape and minimize the audibility of noise inherently introduced by bit depth reduction. Instead of providing a very limited set of a few, fixed noise shaping curves, TB Dither allows you to design the spectrum of the quantization noise using familiar tools such as low-shelf, high-shelf and peaking filters, just as any equalizer. This provides the ability to adjust quantization noise spectra according to the audio content, and envisioned reproduction system (s). If you can work with an EQ, you can work with TB Dither.
To get started, no less than 7 different noise shaping curves are provided and can be recalled from a menu, ranging from threshold-in-quiet curves, inverse dB (A) weighting, inverse ITU-R 468 curves, and several more.
Version 3.0.4 – Mar 23, 2014
Fixed an issue that could Reaper to crash when switching plugin order in track FX
Fixed erroneous mapping of dry/wet control; updating this may change the amount of reverb in your current projects!
Improved smoothness of output when changing pre delay, room size and room shape parameters
Now available as v3 plugin
Fixed issue in Logic Pro sometimes resulting in automatic switch to mono mode
Resolved an issue that could result in inresponsiveness of the GUI level detector for very short attack times
Resolved an issue of the spectrum analyzer sometimes being switched off when host is (auto) saving
The plugins require a host program that supports the VST 2.4 specification or a host program that supports Apple OSX Audio Units.
• Windows XP, Vista, or 7.
• Both 32 as well as 64 bit plugin hosts are natively supported.
• Intel Pentium 4, 1 GHz or higher (with SSE instruction support)
• AMD Athlon64, 1 GHz or higher (with SSE instruction support).
• Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard) or higher.
• Intel-‐based processor running at 1 GHz or higher.
