Free Dynamics Processor Plug-in From Tokyo Dawn - The TDR Kotelnikov For Mac And PC
12-10-2014 09:10 AM
The gang at Tokyo Dawn have released another cool free plug-in, the TDR Kotelnikov standard. This is what they have to say about it;
TDR Kotelnikov is a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility. As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.TDR Kotelnikov Features
With a sonic signature best described as “stealthy”, Kotelnikov has the ability to manipulate the dynamic range by dramatic amounts, while carefully preserving the original tone, timbre and punch of a musical signal. As such, it is perfectly suited to stereo bus compression as well as other critical applications.
The concept is “proudly digital” in the sense that it doesn’t try to emulate any previously existing device. This is the original!
- 64bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations
- Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy
- “Delta” oversampled signal path (bit transparent at 0dB gain reduction)
- Super fast, yet natural sounding compression
- “Crest factor” based control scheme offering independent release controls for peak and RMS events
- Flexible sidechain highpass filter
- Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus
- Delta preview mode to preview the difference between compressed and original signal
- Latency compensated parallel bypass (i.e. processing not interrupted)
TDR Kotelnikov Specifications
Windows: VST and AAX
Mac: VST, AU and AAX
How To Get The TDR Kotelnikov
To download the free version of the TDR Kotelnikov visit the Tokyo Dawn website
Yes. Sounds interesting.
I probably try it next time "on mars"
This does indeed appear to be another intriguing freebie from the venerable Tokyo Dawn Records. For those of you with big brains there is also the Gender Specific GE version for only EU40.
tB has only a small brain and can barely understand the manual for the free version. I'll be needing a copy of 'TDR Kotelnikov for Badgers'.
Does anyone know where I can get a copy?
I couldn't teach you the secrets of dynamic processing, this is something I do intuitive, mostly starting with a preset I like and then tweaking with the knobs until I think its good. I am with you tB. A good and understandable book or tutorial vid* on this topic would be nice.
Today I've made a CD for the car and for that, I've tried this TDR in the master bus before the final limiter. As far as I can say atm, it has a good sound and the few presets are good enough to get an idea how it works.
The audio material was already mastered before, but with this plugin now, it sounds a bit better and more balanced (not only 'louder is better').
Nice Plugin and I think I'll add it to my tool chain and explore it a bit more (also on groups etc.).
* Not only about this plug in. More like a class room, teaching the secrets of dynamic processing. Also side chaining and stuff.

hahhahahaahhaahahahha !!! FFS !!! what a post TB !!!
brilliant! pmsl @ that
Here is a tutorial video about compressors for $30.
Kenny Gioia is back, this time giving you the history and application of all the famous Compressors ever made, as well as their modern day plug-in equivalents! Now you’ll know exactly what Compressor to pick for your tracks and how to use them. This series is long overdue!
Kenny starts with a detailed introduction, covering each industry standard Compressor and how they fit into compression history. Next Kenny goes over what a Compressor is, how they behave and all of the most popular variables and parameters that can be adjusted for each.
Moving on, Kenny gives you awesome videos for each Compressor’s plug-in equivalent, including the Urei 1176, Teletronix LA-2a, Teletronix LA-3, Neve 2254/33609, API 2500, Fairchild 660/670, SSL E/G Channel Compressor, SSL Bus Compressor, Empirical Labs Distressor, and the DBX 160! Each of these Compressors are explained in detail and you’ll also hear how they sound on different audio tracks.
The plug-in equivalents featured in the series are by top plug-in manufactures including Waves, IK Multimedia, Native Instruments, and Softube, so you’re bound to find one that you have and use.
If you’ve always wondered what Compressor gives you a certain sound, or which one is best suited for a particular instrument, this series will set you straight… Get “Compressors Explained” toda
