5. HoRNet Angle | Tone Shaper Tool

HoRNet Angle Tone Shaper VST Plugin

HoRNet Angle is a free tonal shaping tool based on the “Tilt EQ” concept. This special kind of equalizer is designed for gental tonal shaping. The plugin also features an analog amp emulation that adds harmonics, auto gain, and peak meters.

A “Tilt EQ” does not provide frequency or Q control. It increases or decreases high and low frequencies around a fixed point. This simple action allows you to apply gentle tonal shaping with little effort. It works great at correcting the frequency balance of a mix.
