Tonelux® Tilt EQ
Tonelux® Tilt EQ
An amazingly simple, yet utterly effective tool.
I spent a good while messing with boomy guitar track since was the main instrument of the mix.
I tried EQing, multiband compression, etc, to get it to start sounding good.
Just for fun, I turned those off and tried Tilt.
I turned the tilt knob to about 2 and the High pass knob to 54Hz and it's done, sitting perfectly in the mix.
For the price, there is no reason not to have this.
A real time saver.
This plugin was super useful. It can shift the tone in a really simple and quick way to get your mixes into the right place quickly. Really light on the uad CPU so you can have tons of instances. Big Bang for the money.
simple and effective plug
i honestly bought this plug as part of a bundle to get a bigger discount, but i have been pleasantly surprised by how often i reach for it as well as its ease of use . if a vocal or snare are feeling a little too dark or too bright, this really does the trick. the high pass is useful also, and the low DSP hit is a plus.
Easy to use, good result, fast way to fix some spectral issues.
Very useful mastering tool.
I'm a big fan of "less is more" or "do no damage" when it comes to mastering. The tilt EQ technique is not new in mastering. It's commonly done with a high and low shelf EQ although how one adjusts the EQ's Q is critical and difficult at times. The beauty of the Tonelux Tilt EQ is in it's simplicity and sound quality. There have been songs I have mastered where I only use the Tonelux Tilt EQ and it's high pass filter. It has a way of balancing a mix without changing the mix with only a dB of tilt. Very useful tool.
Let me add.....
If I were to design an analog console I would have this as part of the preamp just as Paul designed the original Tonelux preamp. I'd love to see a full Unison enabled Tonelux preamp/channel strip, much like the API Vision but with Paul's Tonelux comp and EQ.
Great Plug for acoustic Sound

Have to ask
If this review actually gets posted, I was just curious, then not even using it or owning it (yet) I can write a review.. So that would mean that reviews mean nothing.. Technically, pun intended!
good but normal
it's a good EQ plug-in but it's not a special one.
Tonelux® Tilt EQ Plug-in.
Tonelux® Tilt EQ Plug-in.-- I am tracking vocals for a new CD with various singers and the TILT EQ allows me to quickly dial in the sound I need to get a clear & present vocal sound--solo to get subtle--This a must have plugin to have if you need to work quickly.
I need more time to really learn all that this plugin does.
Have used this for years with the softube version. You can cover so much ground with this little guy so quickly. Just buy it.
How can utter simplicity be so incredibly effective?
At first glance, it looks like something noble, humble and simple. Once switched on it is so incredibly effective! It is like the filter that should be on every track before I go to EQ. Such an amazing determinant of the tonal quality of each instrument and voice. Low occupation of DSP usage on my PCI card also means I can run many instances! Fantastic plug-in!
Simplicity and Power
This plugin is like a magic wand. Its never been this easy to get mix elements sitting just right.
Perfect plugin for layering audio files. Kick, CH, Bass & more
A biased review yet honest
Paul Wolff is one of my friends. I've known "Fix" for 35 years now.
That said, I'd tell Paul in a second if the Tilt wasn't up to what engineers and musicians expect from his designs.
We talked a good bit when he was starting Tonelux and the Tilt EQ was a major part of the first Tonelux mic preamp. When he told me that he was going to enter the plugin world via Softube, and now UA, the Tilt made perfect sense. Simplicity plus high quality is essential with the tools we use to make music. Having too many choices can derail the creative process. As engineers, mixers and musicians it is wonderful when a tool becomes available that enhances our drive to get to the music. The Tilt does that job very well.
