Once you've downloaded Tonality, simply drag the software's icon into your Applications folder to install. When you open the software for the first time, you can choose to start your trial, or you can input the activation code if you have paid for the software.
Lab Glow (new in v2.3)Lab Glow is compressing tonality in the highlights (or if you use a negative value, it is expanding tonality in the highlights). Increasing Lab Glow will the appearance of smoother highlights with less visible detail.
Lab Fade (new in v2.3)Lab Fade is compressing the tonality of the shadows - so you will see smoother shadows with less visible detail and no pure black. And again, using a negative value for Lab Fade will do the opposite - expanding the tonality in the shadows.
WB DENSITYThis controls the impact of White Balance adjustments on the tonality of your image. (You may not notice any difference here if you do not have a high color balance correction.)
You can insert Mixed In Key Studio Edition on audio, software instrument, send, bus, sub-mix and master channels. This allows you to check the tonality of individual instruments or across the whole of your mix.
Much sharper attack than the first 3 modes. If you listen to the signal 100% wet, it almost sounds like there is some dry signal in there. This is a characteristic of some of the plates we heard during the development process. The tonality is fairly bright.
This has a deeper attack than both Chrome and Steel (i.e., the sound seems to come from a more distant sound source). The tonality is fairly dark. There is a bit of resonance in the very low midrange, that was dialed in from a specific EMT140 we tested at Avast Recording here in Seattle. Most of the other Valhalla Plate modes were deliberately designed to have a more neutral tonality, but this low midrange resonance was key to getting close to that specific sound.
MUCH higher modal density than the first 4 modes. With the SIZE parameter set >100%, Aluminum can sound much more like a chamber than a plate. There is a slight metallic sound to a well-tuned plate, that the first 4 reverb modes have. Aluminum (and Copper & Unobtanium) have less of this metallic sound and can sound much clearer. The overall tonality of Aluminum is fairly bright. 2b1af7f3a8
