Joey Sturgis Tones Release New Drum Proccessing Plug-In

Joey Sturgis Tones has graced us once more with another stellar plug-in – The Tominator. 

All the way from Connersville Indiana, Sturgis developed The Tominator to treat the obnoxious cymbal bleed that is commonly heard in close-mic drum recordings. Although the plug-in was built for toms, it could easily be applied to other percussive instruments for similar results.

The Tominator uses a unique, filter based approach to treat cymbal bleed. Users are able to treat the bleed in a more natural approach than gating. With this method, you no longer need to sacrifice the common issue of signal loss that occurs with most gates and expanders – which will save you loads of time and effort.

Check out the plug-ins features and technical specs below.


● Eliminates cymbal bleed with internal moving filter
● Internal automated filter for effectively removing cymbal bleed
● Speed control for changing how fast filter works on your signal
● Cutoff parameter sets where the filter will stop after the transient
● Enables you to have more versatility when processing your drums


Tominator was developed with the anticipation that users will be loading multiple instances, such as one per drum track. With this in mind, the plugin was built to be lightweight, using minimal CPU & system resources. Users have the peace of mind knowing that any standard recording computer and DAW can handle an instance of Tominator on every drum track. Tominator is supported on all Macs & PCs in both a 32-bit and 64-bit format. For accessibility across all major digital audio workstations, Tominator is available as a VST2, VST3, AU, RTAS & AAX plugin.

Pricing & Availability:

Tominator will be available at starting November 30, 2016 for an introductory price of $39 USD until December 7, 2016. After December 7, 2016, Tominator will carry a standard price of $59, with an MSRP of $49.
