    Not to diminish Nova (which is on sister site BTW), but how is it DSEQ alternative? They're built for completely different tasks and mutually can't do what the other can.

    You're right - on close inspection - NOVA comes *MUCH MUCH CLOSER* to approximating the magic of *SOOTHE* than DSEQ could EVER HOPE

    I bought Nova GE on last black friday sale. And this plugin is really not a Soothe or DSEQ alternative.

    I have already seen a good amount of ignorants thinking fabfilter dynamic EQ or tdr nova or whatever dyn EQ is the same with soothe, gulfoss, DSEQ. They want the shiniest tools but doesn't even acknowledge the basic principles of operation for those tools. Fuckin hyped plugins collectors.
    Alternative? what a joke

    I own Nova GE and sooth. Nova GE cannot do what sooth has been thinked for. Not at all. Nova Ge can help you to take control over resonance frequencies, sure, dinamically too, but the way it acts on frequency spectrum is not the same as sooth.

    It's not the same pitch, neither the same sport.

    TDR Nova GE is indeed an alternative to Soothe! it can do similar things, namely: it can automatically remove unpleasant resonances from the frequency spectrum. Soothe is more sophisticated for that task and follows an FFT paradigm (so the frequency spectrum gets divided into thousands of spectral bands and analysed for unusual resonant peaks in realtime).

    TDR Nova GE is more of a general purpose tool, that also comes with it's own automatic resonance removal function, which works quite good. It's a dynamic EQ though and doesn't work as precisely as a FFT processor. Soothe can precisely narrow down the problematic resonance spots to the level of one spectral FFT band, while Nova GE's dynamic eq nodes are not as precise. Also, Nova GE analyses the signal for resonances once and then sets the parameters for the dynamic eq bands to get rid of those resonant peaks, while Soothe and DSEQ watch the signal constantly and change the parameters accordingly.

    If I had to decide between Nova GE and Soothe, I would prefer Nova GE, since it's more flexible and more suitable for different mixing tasks, while Soothe is a one-trick pony (but does that one trick really, really good).

    Plugins similar to Soothe - MSpectralDynamics, Sibilance, DSEQ..
    Nova is not like Soothe. Different categories. One is Dynamic eq (Nova) and other is Spectral Dynamics Processor based (Soothe).

    Did you read my post? Yes, they follow different paradigms, but the result is similar: realtime ducking of automatically identified unpleasant resonances. One does it by using a dynamic eq paradigm, the other uses a spectral (FFT) paradigm. That's all, no magic here. FFT is more sophisticated, but can also result in more unnatural timbre if overdone, because it literally fragments the frequency spectrum into it's macro components, which is not natural at all.

    Dumb people who easily fall victim to hypes think that Soothe and Gulfloss are "game changers", but I did the same thing they do with free plugins more than a decade ago (hint: ReaFir).

    That's an assertive and subtle opinion for you :rofl:

    Is it me because I'm in swearing rehab or insulting here has become trendy lately?? Ok, I just answered myself backwards... never mind... ohh what about this beautiful sunny day???

    this is the thread where people really show they don't know their plugins very well. Well, some of them at least. Kudos to Hazen

    absolutely - soothe is sexy - but it's a one-trick pony. a glorified sausage fattener, if you will...

    dude, even the one-click learn EQ, does not mean dynamic EQ has the real-time smart frequency. when sound note(key) changed, the resonance frequency will change too, you singing from C note then go to F, will the frequency be the same? like Soothe or DSEQ they value is not only high accuracy but also in real-time.
    do you know a plugin call SurferEQ? same logic.

    i love NOVA free version, but NOVA GE version had puzzling high CPU usage.
