Character from tc electronic is a plug-in for PowerCore that provides a fundamentally different approach to audio processing. Conventional tools modify the frequency intensity or dynamic structure of the source material, without analyzing its contents prior to processing. The plug-in utilizes a specially developed algorithm that takes into account the content of the audio source.
The Character algorithm is based on Noveltech's Intelligent Adaptive Filtering (IAF) technology, allowing the processing to affect both the frequency response and dynamic properties of the input material in a highly time varying manner. When processing an audio source, the algorithm intelligently identifies and enhances the characteristics that are pleasing to the human auditory system.
One example of such characteristics is the time related attack and decay properties of the signal transients. The processing is non-linear and highly dependent on the source material's original content, aiming at enhancing the favored characteristics derived from the original musical instrument or voice. This approach allows the user to get a satisfactory result much faster using only three parameters.
