TBProAudio has announced the release of sTilt, a freeware linear phase tilt filter effect in VST/AU/RTAS plugin formats for Windows and Mac OS based host applications.
The plugin is designed for tilting the audio spectrum of the processed audio signal around a user-specified center frequency. Turning the tilt knob to the right will boost the signal above the center frequency, while attenuating everything below it (and vice versa). As opposed to standard parametric and graphic equalizers, tilt filter effects such as sTilt are suitable for applying extremely broad tonal adjustments to the audio signal on the input. Even more importantly, the resulting frequency boost/cut often sounds quite natural to the human ear, more so than what you’d normally get with a pair or shelving or peaking filters.
sTilt is a linear phase filter, meaning that it will perfectly preserve the phase of the processed audio signal. On the other hand, this feature introduces quite a bit of latency, so keep that in mind when using the plugin in a multi-track session (it won’t make too much difference in a mastering scenario, though). The reported latency depends on the Quality parameter setting. At minimum processing quality, the plugin reports 17.4 ms of latency, going all the way to a whooping 1114.5 ms latency at the maximum setting.
