Noveltech Audio is a business unit of Noveltech Solutions Ltd and focuses on innovative high-quality audio processing technologies. The bases for Noveltech Audio’s processing technologies are innovative signal processing methods originally conceived to improve the spectral resolution in spectrometers. They were later adapted for audio restoration by Noveltech board member, Dr. Ismo Kauppinen.
Dr. Kauppinen's desire to overcome the disadvantages of conventional sound-shaping tools led to the development of another invention, the Intelligent Adaptive Filtering (IAF) technology. The first product based on this technology was the Character™ plug-in, initially released on the TC's PowerCore platform. Character was the first pro-audio product branded under the Noveltech name. Vocal Enhancer was the second product utilizing IAF technology, and it was released in 2006.
The demise of the PowerCore platform, along with the increase in power for Mac and PC computers, allowed Character and Vocal Enhancer to launch as native plugins in 2012. These products are now available exclusively through Plugin Alliance.
This modern-day exciter and tone enhancer is great for pulling up sections of frequencies and emphasizing the harmonics in a way that sounds REALLY good. The lack of analyzer or numbers in terms of frequencies forces you to dial it in purely by ear until it sounds just right. It's great for giving richness to audio that lets it cut through the mix without any phasing or clashing.
The name ‘Vocal Enhancer’ is actually misleading. This plug sounds amazing on anything that needs mid-range detail and presence. Guitars? Snare? Awesome.
I love this for my vocal strips -- it can always add some shine and sparkle to a vocal and make it cut through the mix.
