Noveltech Character

Add CHARACTER™ to your mixes...

Overview

CHARACTER intelligently enhances the characteristics found in your source material by automatically adjusting complex sets of parameters rather than merely boosting a specific frequency region. This revolutionary approach allows you to get to the desired result far more quickly via just three intuitive controls.

The CHARACTER algorithm is based on Noveltech’s Intelligent Adaptive Filtering (IAF) technology. The processing affects both the frequency response and dynamic properties of the input material in a highly time-variable sense. CHARACTER intelligently identifies and enhances the characteristics in audio material that are pleasing to the human ear. One example of such characteristics is the time related attack and decay properties of the signal’s transients.

Focusing on the perceivably favored characteristics of the original musical instrument or voice, CHARACTER intelligently enhances the relevant characteristics found in the source by automatically adjusting complex sets of parameters rather than only statically boosting one specific frequency region.

This revolutionary approach allows for instant gratification since you only have three very intuitive parameters to tweak.

Keep in mind however, that CHARACTER doesn’t perform magic or miracles, though it may often sound like it. It can only emphasize characteristics already present in the source material.
