T-Exciter By Techivation
Here’s another impressive newbie from Techivation. This time, they have released T-Exciter, an Exciter plugin with its characteristic UI. This plugin is currently available for $39 and also you can get their bundle deal and save more. In this post, we’ll take a deeper look at this plugin to discover what it offers.
T-Exciter, as the names imply, is an exciter plugin with a highly user-friendly and easy-to-use UI, and it looks awesome. This plugin combines EQ, dynamic, and saturation processing. So, even though it has a simple UI, magic is happening behind the curtain.
T-Exciter offers different options for the majority of its products. This plugin offers 4 different settings. The first choice is “Shine” (which makes the details of the sounds more obvious and hearable), the second option is “Air” (which adds more air and openness to the sound), and the third option is “Wet” (which adds more glue and excitement to the sound), and the fourth option is “Crisp” (which adds more in face sounds and brightness). Let’s have a look at how each of these options affects your signal and learn more about T-Exciter.
When the Shine option is chosen, you can add more sharpness, brightness, and details to your sound. I personally like to use this option for some dull sound mixes, but it would also sound great on vocals, and some other instruments too.

When the Air option is chosen, you are adding more air and openness to your signal. It works very well on vocals, guitars, and percussions.

When the Wet option is chosen, you will have a very pleasing drop-off on the high end and at the same time, you are also adding more warmth and very pleasant saturation to your audio. It also helps to enhance the mid-range.

When the Crisp option is chosen, you will hear the sounds more upfront and let them cut more through the mix. It’s a great option to bring up and add more crispiness to your vocal.

- Input: Cut or boost input volume in dB.
- Output: Cut or boost input volume in dB.
- Excitement: Control the quantity of processing by adjusting the excitement knob from 0% to 100%.
- Mix: Mix the processing signal with the dry signal. An ideal feature for parallel processing.
- Width: Act as a stereo widener and helps to add more depth to your signal.
- Effect Modes: Gives you 4 different options to choose from according to your desire.
- OFF/ON: Turn on and off the plugin.
- A/B: A great choice for A/B comparison is to compare 2 different settings at the same time on a single plugin.
- Menu: Provides, Undo/Redo, Presets menu, Save/Load settings, GUI settings, Activation setup, and more.
First of all, I must state that I have not experienced any poor quality Techivation products they always come up with fantastic ideas and plugins, and they all sound excellent. I’m a big fan of all their products, including T-De-Esser Pro, T-Compressor, and T-Clarity, and now T-Exciter has become my go-to exciter plugin since it’s simple to use and gives me what I want in a flash. Although the UI looks to be simple, as with all of their plugins, it is surprisingly powerful. So don’t underestimate this beast’s power; it accomplishes far more than it seems.
The way the T-Exciter enhances high frequencies is just wonderful. As previously said, the outstanding output is the consequence of a mix of EQ curves, Dynamic, and Saturation processing. All four of its choices operate well. If you have a dull-sounding mix for instance and wish to add additional detail, the Shine option is ideal. If you want to bring warmth and open air to your vocal, for example, you may choose the Air option. Wet is an excellent choice for bringing warmth and solidness to your mid-range. Finally, you may use Crisp for bringing brightness, pleasantness, and openness to your vocal, drum, or even guitar.
So this is why I use this plugin, and it’s just my own viewpoint; no one else can tell you what’s good or bad unless you attempt and experiment with a product and get knowledgeable about it yourself. So, for that, you may test a free 14-day trial version and determine if you’d truly use this product in your projects or not.
