Fire The Tilt

The quickest way to enhance your mix

Tilting is often all it takes to turn your track around with a few simple interventions. Sometimes you need to improve your track by making it sit better in a mix, maybe you want to make it almost instantly more 'vibrant' and 'warm' or on the contrary 'cold' and 'less intrusive'...or maybe you may find that your final mix, while being basically well balanced as such, needs only just a bit more highs and less lows...

These are all cases in which the best and quickest way to enhance your mix is a good TILT EQ, and even more so if different shapes and frequencies are available.If that's not enough, think about the possibility of drastically altering the frequency spectrum, allowing you to have more bass and more treble at the same time, or vice versa, less of both... in those situations a SMILE (AKA “Loudness”) EQ is the way to go.

Finally, think about applying TILT and SMILE curves only to the Mid or Side component of the signal: by doing so you can further enhance the stereo depth with a few simple clicks, while mantaining the ability to balance the amount of the Mid and Side information.

Well, all this and more can be found in Fire The Tilt.

After a careful design phase, our high technical know-how and thanks to the precious contribution of the N4 library developer SoundDrops, Acustica has built and sampled a bespoke analog processor with the aim of creating one of the best and most complete Tilt EQ plugins currently on the market.
