One of the most important parts of getting a good mix is your ability to mix before ear fatigue sets in. This is why sometimes plugins that give you control over every little detail often lead to worse mixes. This is where T-Bone comes in. T-Bone is designed to be fast. Get in and get out. It gives you quick access to all the necessary tone adjustment tools that 95% of your tracks need. Adjust the brightness, focus, air and beef with simple and fast controls. And when you are done, you can check your sanity with the “intensity” control, which lets you dial back everything (or dig in harder) if you’ve overdone it.
Clean filters up to Nyquist without a CPU hit
During the development of T-Bone, Boz Digital created some incredibly smooth filters that don’t produce any of the disturbing high-frequency wonkiness. Boz Digital’s wonk-free filters not only give you a smooth frequency response up to the Nyquist limit, but also can do so without the resource-draining hit to your CPU that occurs with oversampled filters.
T-Bone—Just the Facts:
- Brightness, Focus, Air, Beef, High Pass and Low Pass controls
- Intensity control for backing off or digging in
- Clean filters up to Nyquist limit
- Low CPU usage
Sweet little tool that does a lot more than any other tilt EQ I’ve found. It’s not the thing I use most, but it’s the one I use when I need a tilt and a bit more. Nice filters too!
Yup, what everyone has already said!
Extremely cool plug!
This plugin rocks! If something in my mix isn’t quite sitting right I’ll give this a go, and quite often it’ll help me to get that instrument to sit better in the mix. It’s really flexible, smooth as, and simple to figure out how to use. Highly recommended.
This thing is amazing. Now, I mix through an analogue board and also have an outboard parametric EQ, so I might be able to duplicate what this does, but it would take much more time, and even then, I’m not sure I could get it. This got me the sound I was looking for with one slight turn of a control, and no problems with levels going over zero.
Wow, this tilt EQ does it all, and then beats the competition by using the best interface imaginable. Turn a knob and watch the huge graphic display change; it’s intuitive and fast, with the huge mouse targets helping you finish the job with speed and confidence.
I didn’t think I would get excited about a tilt EQ but I was wrong.
This, in my opinion is what using excellent plugins is all about. Firstly the audio quality. It does what it does really well and sounds great doing it, ease of use, the great GUI, seeing what you are changing is also very cool indeed. Very fine increments in settings is totally easy. Solid feel of use and total reliability.
Excellent plug-in and even better concept. Great way to effortlessly add contrast to your mix. You don’t have to think about frequencies, the levels don’t change (!) and it sounds supremely transparent.. You just think “this should be a bit brighter/darker” and turn the knob.
I find myself adding this later in the mix; making little changes. You could also start with T-Bone and go on from there. Especially if you (or someone else) essentially recorded the wrong sounds; and you find yourself thinking “this SHOULD HAVE BEEN brighter/darker”.
All the same: great plug-in, awesome GUI, excellent price!
EASILY the best money I’ve spent on a plug-in this year… it has become a permanent fixture as the second-last plug-in on my master bus (right before the maximizer) to make subtle changes to the tonality of tracks. The combination of the slant EQ and the hi-pass filter is great for simultaneously cleaning up the mud and adding a little presence to recordings. The harsh & boom controls are also helpful in not over-doing it. Also gets extra points for not requiring a PhD to use.

T-Bone is the fastest way to “EQ” a track in the world. It’s not exactly an EQ and that is what I love about it. Being able to jump right in and twist a single knob often improves a track about 300%. It’s a huge deal and everyone should try this style of “tone control”. I love it!
Quality of the filters are top notch. Saturation is so good that I use it always on many channels just to give a nice touch of warming. Great job Boz, and we expecting full EQ with this filters please.

I love this plugin. Often times when I am give. Tracks that I did not record I have many issues such as low end it to loud and the top it needs a boost. Normally I have to use a eq to boost the top or cut lows then compensate with volume and the deal with harshness.or boomy tones. With this it all comes in a easy to use package. I can cut or enhance highs or lows while preventing the issues before. Because of the harsh and boom controls I can boost the low or top end alot to give something the huge tone change while stopping it from ever getting boomy or harsh due to the way it works. The high and low pass filters are super smooth and I love the resonant peaks I can add using just one knob. One thing to note is that the peaks never sound overly resonant. More like they just enhance the aria around them so for people who like smooth clean boosts it’s perfect. I love how you can choose where the tilt is actually located to it’s basically one of the only eqs that dies this. Overall a amazing eq plugin for changing the tone of a sound to sculpting it.
Hi. I used the plug-in for the first time yesterday and really like what it does. Looking forward to finding out more about what it can do. However, appears to be problematic with mac as it’s having problems with the AU Manager in Logic Pro X saying that T.Bone version 1.0.3 failed validation. Any ideas?
EXCELLENT !!! For me this is a life saver. Completely deaf in one ear and my remaining ear has quite bad hearing loss, so I’ve been finding it harder and harder when mixing. Even using my hearing aid with a specially tweaked music program everything sounds dull and lifeless. I tried many a long hour setting up an EQ on the master buss in an attempt to give me back what I’ve lost. I’m not a pro and the multi-band EQ thingy has not proved that successful. Then I discovered TBone, added it to the output channel, turned the main control to about half way and hey presto. A nice sounding mix.
All I need to do is remember to remove it from the output bus prior to export mixdown.
Thank you, Thank you and Thank you
What ever happend to the contest etc…
Was this one of the (original) entries?
I never enter any, but got carried with this one for some reason but then most entries lost!?!? uggh
Kind of disapointed…
wanted to write more but if you dont have anything nice to say…
…at least I like your plugs
If you sent a message I missed it or it ended up as spam… wasn’t there something about us making up?
original forum is gone, support forum is liveless… so yeah couldve shouldve email o.w.e… just let this message selfdestruct… or something
well done guys love this plugin good work
Compared to the T-lux company stuff this gives more control especially the ability to select the frequency at which the tilt occurs ; i started with the Tilty Wilty when it was first released and this is a very significant upgrade.
