Mixland freeTILT! GUI

MIXLAND and Kiive Audio (known for their collaboration, the Rubber Band Compressor) have joined forces once again for a free plugin, freeTILT! This is a stripped down one-knob version of their premium TILT! plugin, and is equally as powerful as a passive tilt/shelving equalizer with an adjustable vacuum tube output stage. The EQ curves and tube circuitry were tuned meticulously to provide a delicious and usable sound. The tilt knob features tilt functionality with fixed high and low frequency points at 100hz and 12khz, and the user’s EQ moves feed directly into the tube circuit and will influence the amount of drive and harmonic saturation that will be heard. Additionally, the user can control the amount of tube saturation using the grit parameter, and the effect ranges from subtle warmth to a sizzly clipping extravaganza depending on the amount chosen. The user interfqce is inspired by Mixland founder Jesse Ray Ernster’s Los Angeles mixing studio, featuring the Strauss Elektroakustik MF-4 monitors.
