Audified unveils the TNT Voice Executor - a one-click processing plug-in for vocals

The new plug-in was developed by mix engineer and software programmer Tomáš Trkal.

Audified has announced the availability of the TNT Voice Executor – a unique utilitarian plug-in offering no-nonsense processing of vocal and spoken word tracks.

By their very nature, human voices are complex mechanisms. We all sound different, so it stands to reason that when recording and broadcasting vocals or spoken word, we need to treat them differently by appropriately applying effects to suit individual voices.

The problem is, though, that takes time and effort. And in today’s time-stressed production climate that’s a luxury many of us longer enjoy, which is exactly the dilemma faced by TNT Recording and Postproduction Studios owner Tomáš Trkal. Unlike most mix engineers, however, as a software programmer he had the talent to do something about it.

Enter TNT Voice Executor, a unique utilitarian plug-in named after that studio, offering no-nonsense processing of vocal and spoken word tracks.

“Often clients want to have the final mix of a song right after recording, which is unrealistic in most cases, so I was in need of something that I could apply to recorded raw vocal tracks, set one parameter, bounce the song, and give it to the client within minutes,” explained Trkal.

“I programmed something suitable and started using it, but when I started studying software programming at Brno University of Technology my teacher put me in contact with Audified CEO Lubor Prikryl. When I demonstrated my plug-in for him, he was so impressed that Audified decided to release it for all major formats, adding some professional standard features, such as metering and calibration to move the product forward.”

The finished product features multiple effect modules, with EQ, DRIVE, and DELAY all present and accounted for alongside complete dynamics controls.

“The plug-in consists of eight processing modules – noise gate [GATE]; high-pass filter; compressor [COMP], with up to three active instances of compressor with different settings in one module; 4-band parametric [EQ]; distortion [DIST]; stereo image enhancer [STEREO]; DELAY; and limiter [LIMIT] – that I typically use when mixing vocals,” said Trkal.

“I’ve treated those modules very carefully, preparing lots of super-usable presets in collaboration with Audified Sound Designer Jarek Musil to satisfy the user’s needs. In short, this plug-in is designed to get a great sound as quickly as possible.”

The plug-in’s simple layout enables users to select a preset then use the three knobs to set the INPUT and OUTPUT volumes (using the I/O meters), and tweak the DRIVE (effect) amount.

Gathered into four groups, each preset contains several variants for both male and female voices. The right side of the plug-in’s GUI shows which effects are engaged and how much gain is being reduced.

TNT Voice Executor is available to purchase as an iLok-protected plug-in – running as an AAX, VST3, and VST2 plug-in on Mac (OS X 10.9 - 10.12) and PC (Windows 7, 8, and 10) and AU on Mac – at an introductory price of $49 until March 19th, 2017 (rising thereafter to $69).
