Equalization reinvented for easier and faster workflow
MTurboEQ speeds up the workflow tremendously by providing access to so many classic equalizers in a single click. But it doesn't stop there. The controls in each hardware were very different, and very weird in many cases, so one had to take a lot of time learning to work with such a clumsy interface. All models in MTurboEQ have pretty much the same user interface and features. There is always a low-shelf and a high-shelf, the most essential filters. Then there are usually 4 peak filters, even if the original had just one, and they always work the same way. And of course there are the classic goodies such as high-pass and low-pass filters (which are used on pretty much all tracks these days, but not many vintage equalizers actually had them), saturation to get some of the analogue feel, dry/wet for easy control of the amount of equalization, automatic gain compensation to avoid loudness trickery, mid/side/surround and more...
Stepped vs. Continous
Some people just like lots of versatility, others prefer having limited options. MTurboEQ provides both options. In Stepped mode almost everything has limited values - predefined frequencies for each filter, gain increasing by single decibels etc. It is much faster to make a decision this way, especially since bigger differences are easier to compare by ear. And when (if) you are ready, you can just switch to Continous mode for fine-tuning. MTurboEQ then lets you access all of the frequencies etc., even if the original hardware (and all emulations) didn't have that. Courtesy of the digital world.
We did the hard work, you equalize!
There is no doubt, that you could do 99.9999% of the sound of any analog equalizer using a versatile parametric equalizer, such as MAutoDynamicEq. It's just frequencies and curves after all, there's no hidden magic. But the analogue equalizers have one big advantage - the design. They provide access only to what you will likely use, configured in such a way, that it all just sounds good from the beginning. We analyzed these designs, copied what we considered useful, trashed the rest (such as noise, hum, pointless overall gain changes...) and now we serve you a finished equalizer, which you can just plug in, turn a few knobs and you are done. It's fast and the results are great, that's all, no magic.
Key M Features
User interfaces need to be fast, simple to use and be easy on the eye. Everyone's needs can be different, so flexibility is important. Melda solves this with the most advanced GUI engine on the market.
Stylable: From vintage hardware to super futuristic. You can choose the colours and style of the GUI, making our plugins personal to you.
Resizable: All Melda plugins are freely resizable. Many also feature popup windows. So no matter how many screens you have or what size they are, you will be able to arrange your plugins to keep a focus on what is important.
GPU Accelerated: All the elements in the GUI are accelerated by your GPU. This makes the graphics lightning-fast and frees up extra power for your CPU to focus on the audio.
Stunning Quality: Melda plugins support HDPI and Retina displays, so you will experience beautiful crisp resolutions. With adjustable frames per second up to 100, you will not miss a thing in our detailed analyzers.
Unique visualisation engine with classic meters and time graphs
Your ears should always be the main tool, but they are not the only way to judge your audio. Visual aids can be incredibly useful for a variety of reasons. Melda's comprehensive metering system is extremely flexible and delivers you accurate information when you need it. From classic meters to time-based graphs, you will see important visual feedback including; Input, Output, Stereo width, Loudness, Waveforms, Bands, Gain reduction and Sidechain, and some plugin dependent meters.
M/S, single channel, up to 8 channels surround processing...
MTurboEQ can handle not only mono and stereo signals, but also mid/side encoding for stereo field processing, separate left & right channels, separate mid or side signal and up to 8 channels of surround audio. It is perfect for audio production for music, movies, games...
Check this video tutorial for more information about channels modes and mid/side processing.
Automatic gain compensation (AGC)
Most plugins change loudness of the output audio, which makes browsing presets inconvenient, not mentioning randomization. MTurboEQ includes automatic gain compensation, which quickly adapts to current settings and ensures the output sounds as loud as the input. This even protects you from thinking that something sounds better in cases it is just louder.
Some plugins can intensely increase gain when exposed to specific audio materials. MTurboEQ provides a safety brickwall limiter, which ensures the output stays below 0dB and prevents your equipment and your ears from potential danger automatically.
Adjustable up-sampling 1x-4x
Digital audio provides very superior audio quality compared to ancient analog gear, but there are problems too. The main problem is the aliasing, which may be noticeable, when using nonlinear processes such as compression or saturation. MTurboEQ includes both minimum-phase and high-quality linear-phase upsampling algorithms, which avoids the aliasing.
Check this video tutorial for information about aliasing.
MIDI controllers with MIDI learn
MTurboEQ contains a powerful MIDI processor, which listen to MIDI controllers and MIDI keyboard and control any parameters realtime.
Check this video tutorial for information about MIDI.
64-bit processing and an unlimited sampling rate
MTurboEQ provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. It does not make much sense to go over 192kHz, but if you think it is a good idea, the plugin can do that.
Extremely fast, optimized for newest AVX2 and AVX512 capable processors
Computers are now extremely fast, but the algorithms are more complex and projects bigger, so we still need to use the processing power with care. MTurboEQ uses the fastest algorithms, takes advantage of the newest processor capabilities, lets your GPU handle the graphics, and shares the resources with other MeldaProduction plugins. The plugin is among the fastest on the market, yet it provides the best possible audio quality.
Global preset management and online preset exchange
MTurboEQ presets are carefully stored in a system database and you can quickly access them from any project in any host. The plugin can automatically share your presets and download presets of other users from our servers. We are building a community and you can be a part of it!
Compare multiple settingsA/B comparison is a widely used method to objectively hear the changes you are making to your audio and help you to make better decisions, non destructively.
A to H Switching: Melda has taken this to the next level. Have up to 8 instances of the plugin, copy/paste the A to H slots and freely switch between them.
A to D Morphing: You can also morph between the first 4 slots with an X-Y pad. Not sure which preset to choose? You could load 4 and find the perfect blend of all of them. Not sure if A or B sounds better? You might prefer an interpolated state somewhere between the two.
Supports VST, VST3, AU and AAX interfaces on Windows & Mac, both 32-bit and 64-bit
MTurboEQ supports all major hosts on both platforms. Check system requirements for information about compatibility and installation.
