In this week's Friday Free Plug-in we feature Nova from Tokyo Dawn Records is a parallel dynamic equaliser. They have designed the GUI using the familiar layout of a parametric equaliser, with each band including a dynamics section.
Tokyo Dawn Records describe it as "a user-friendly WYSIWYG drag and drop display paired with a classic “knob” interface" designed to give access to the various parameters driving Nova’s powerful processing capabilities. Nova has four dynamic EQ bands and additional high-pass and low-pass filter sections, and it has what Tokyo Dawn Records refer to as "having an intuitive equal loudness functions to help find the optimal setting without getting distracted by loudness differences". As with any dynamic eq, it can cover a range of tasks:
- Parametric equalisation
- Dynamic equalisation
- Frequency selective compression
- Multi-band compression
- Wideband compression
Nova features also include a preset manager, undo/redo, A/B, detailed documentation, and copy & paste.
