UPDATED for Stereo Tool v8.01 BETA 48
Here's my first public Stereo Tool preset. The goals of this preset is to sound consistent without compromise to the dynamics. It uses Natural Dynamics for dynamics balance, and the Multiband for spectral balance.
This preset is inspired by my time as a boy living in the natural beauty of Minnesota USA.
Nothing was done to the multiband AGC settings to compromise the spectral balancing abilities in order to "hide" incorrect action within distortion (non-linear gain reduction from less than Infinite:1 ratio), unlike nearly every processor and preset that I've ever heard. This is extremely
challenging to achieve for any processor no matter how it's adjusted. Stereo Tool v8.01 BETA 48 is the first processor I've used that can get there.
The preset comes with HD (also for Streaming), and FM settings for 75uS and 50uS emphasis. The HD version only uses the look-ahead oversampled limiter for final peak control, which barely needs to do anything. Despite the loudness, there is little peak limiting in these presets.
You MUST use Stereo Tool v8.01 BETA 48 for this to sound right.
