Clariphonic MS

The original Clariphonic was a fiendishly clever high frequency equalizer, designed from the ground up with six parallel signal paths that produced the kind of air, sparkle, and presence previously found only in very old, very expensive analog equalizers. It’s long-awaited successor, the Clariphonic MS, has the same mind blowing sonics that made the original a ‘desert island’ piece for engineers around the world.

Now, everyone’s favorite mix EQ offers state-of-the-art Mid-Side processing, 41-step detented pots, and a Master Bypass switch. The new Cut mode on the Focus band softens overly aggressive midrange, while rear-panel mid-side inserts allow you to use any processor in your rack in Mid-Side mode before dusting the result with the Clariphonic’s unique magic.

Clariphonic MS is not only more flexible than the original, it also extends the functionality of every piece of gear in your rack. You’re welcome!



Electra

 

The Electra is a 5-band

serial eq that enables precise, musical control over the tone *and* the texture of recorded sounds. The novel combination of four meticuously tuned filter types --- a subtly resonant butterworth high-pass, fixed low shelf, two proportional-Q mids, and mastering style high shelf --- combine forces to open up completely new creative possibilities for how your tracks impact the emotions of the listener. On the mix, on busses, and on individual tracks... it does exactly what you want, and nothing that you don't. The vibe of the filters is electric, with a crackling but incredibly smooth and detailed midrange, thick but tightly defined low end, and sparkling high frequencies that are unmistakeably analog. The Electra is yet another "can't make it sound bad" Kush processor designed by an artist whose passion is to make the path between "the sound in your head" and "the sound of your mix" as short and effortless as possible.



Clariphonic 500

A fiendishly clever new approach to high frequency equalization, designed from the ground up with six parallel signal paths that produce the kind of air, clarity, and presence previously found only in very old, very expensive analog equalizers. There is no limit to the types of sweet high end the Clariphonic can produce. The internal parallel signal paths produce a form of additive-only high frequency equalization that is at once holographic, transparent, and virtually phaseless. You get effortless, natural high end for days. • 2 high-shelves blended in parallel on each channel • 5 unusual and carefully selected corner frequencies • powerful control over the midrange, presence, and air bands • ability to 'solo' the parallel filters for external sweetening & processing • minimal, mastering grade signal path for total sonic purity



Electra 500

Electra? Elect it !

500 series for now: The Electra, or Electrified Transient Equalizer, is a 4-band, multi-topology eq designed to precisely and musically redefine how the transients and harmonic energy of a sound interrelate, opening up completely new creative possibilities for how sounds interlock, move air, and impact the emotions. The tone of this box is quite literally electric, with a crackling but incredibly smooth and detailed midrange, tightly defined low end, and unmistakably analog high frequencies. The heart of the Electra is two fully sweepable Proportional-Q bands tailored to allow for extreme pushes without sounding stressed or unnatural. The more you boost or cut, the narrower these filters get, which makes them gentle at low gain and powerful at high gain. Their adaptively musical shape allows you to add a tight 'thwack' to snares, brighten a vocal without sacrificing warmth, or even completely rebalance the elements within a drum loop as if you had faders for the various elements. Rounding out the bottom is a fixed low shelf which pairs beautifully with the the continuously variable (25-400Hz) 12db/octave HPF. The HPF has just a touch of bite on the corner which makes it rewarding to clean up the mud; the shelf and HPF combined allow you to reshape, de-clutter, and tighten up even the most unruly low end. Topping it all off is a sparkling, fully sweepable (3.4-20k) high shelf reminiscent of the coveted vintage mastering EQ’s of yore; it'll give life to the darkest, murkiest sound, and adds a smooth top end that plugins simply cannot replicate. Ribbons, overheads, vocals... anything that needs shimmer will love the treatment this filter gives.
