Temperature VST - a super simple equalizer


Looking for a 3 dB/oct filter? Or even a 1 dB/oct filter? Look no further! This VST is like the old "tone control" seen on many 70s and 80s tape recorders, but one that tilts the entire frequency spectrum in a very precise and linear fashion.

A value of -10 dB will turn white noise into pink noise, and -20 will give you something that resembles a RIAA curve a bit. Positive numbers will increase the highs and attenuate the lows. It also comes with an optional DC remover, a 6dB/oct highpass filter that goes from 10 to 1000 Hz. The plug-in has been tested at 44100 and 96000 Hz samplerate, but should work at other rates as well.

At -20 dB setting it adds more bass and attenuates the treble, making the sound "warmer":

At 0 dB setting it is bypassed:

At +20 dB setting you get more treble and less bass, giving a more "cold" and clear sound:

Tips & facts

  • At -10 dB it will turn white noise into pink noise.
  • At +10 dB it will turn pink noise into white noise.
  • At a setting of -20 dB you should get a RIAA curve, even though -18 dB seemed to fit my own mediocre turntable a bit better.
