4-Band Tube Equalizer Emulated

Tone Empire releases Black Q - Smooth Tubes Equalizer      01/08/19

Tone Empire has launched Black Q, which they describe as a brand new high-end 4-Band Smooth Equalizer plug-in. This is what they have to say about it…

At Tone – Empire  we are obsessed with Sound

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.

Pricing and Availability:
$39 intro price until 31st Aug 2019 (regular price: $79)
