We recently brought a vintage unit to life by building the hardware version over 6 months, changing tubes, transformers and signal paths.
In this quest, we build a ” Golden Unit ” with “Super Powers” 🙂
We had the idea then to model this circuit with 2 paths involving sowter and lundahl transformers and some choices of vintage valves.
The result was simply “Stunning”
Then combining this with a versatile EQ Design, we developed a monster Tube EQ in the DSP world, a kind of hybrid with a sound going from ” Clean and Silky ” to full-on ” Crunchy ” sounding saturations.
TYPE A gives you a great “FULL” sound including a “Big” Low end and TYPE B gives you a crunchier mid/high enhanced sound. These choices make it possible to use this eq on a variety of sound materials from Drums to vocals, Piano, string instruments, Bass, Synths and as a mastering unit itself.
The next part was to make this plugin as processor efficient as possible so it could be used as a tracking plugin with very low latency and also allow one to run multiple instances of it effortlessly.
I think we have accomplished both things. We are now very keen to see our customers reactions to Black Q!
Black Q is Dripping with Vintage analog tube tone !!! A wonderful EQ with that vintage vibe from back in the day. It just adds so much color & character to anything i put thru it with a nice selection of start-up presets for Mastering, Drums, Gtr’s, Pno’s, Vocals, Synth’s, etc…. its a steal at this price !! tone-empire once again hits it outta the park !! Love it !!!!!
