FAQ Tokyo Dawn Labs

Yes. Just keep in mind that it only affects parameters common to both plugins.

No, our plugins do not run on Power PC Macs.

Yes, this is possible, but restricted to a minimum of 6 months after initial license purchase. Please get in touch with us.

Products are instantly available from your customer profile. Audio plugins can be downloaded and installed in the form of a Mac package, a Windows installer, or manually with the “no installer” version (for windows). An appropriate Key file will be generated and offered for download, where applicable.

All our commercial plugins come in two versions, a completely free standard edition, and an enhanced “Gentleman’s Edition”.

We do this in contrast to the traditional model relying on a full edition and a strongly restricted demo version. This approach has several advantages, both for the end-user and our development process. The most apparent is the fact that it enables us to offer the standard edition for free, which in turn helps us to promote and test the plugin effectively and efficiently. On the other hand, the end-user can evaluate the plugin with all the time he needs, and if interested, acquire the “Gentleman’s Edition” at relatively low cost.

The main disadvantage is that there’s no way to demo the additional features introduced by the given “Gentleman’s Edition”. But we’re hoping that quality of the free, standard editions give you sufficient confidence to consider a purchase! 🙂

To be clear, the Gentleman’s Edition is not meant to discriminate women (see gentleman’s agreement, gentleman scientist and so on).

Tokyo Dawn Records (TDR) is the name of a tough little music unit meanwhile based in Munich, Germany. Established in 1997 by Marc Wallowy and friends, TDR has been spreading soul futurism on the internet since its beginning. Commonly credited as pioneer label of the netaudio movement starting in the mid ’90s, this unconventional collective made its first steps into the online world using IRC networks, then experimenting with new collaborative techniques and open-source music concepts on the internet – years before Napster was even invented. Since the label relaunch late 2009, TDR has released dozens of eclectic albums from a wide range of unique artists, some of them even surprisingly hitting #1 in digital sales and tastemaker charts. Musically focusing on a very distinct subset of genres like future funk and eclectic jazz, TDR has developed an instantly recognizable and innovative sound stamp acknowledged worldwide.
