Peacock can be used on a stereo bus to create the classic vinyl sound. On individual tracks it is also very useful in creating large fat sounds, smoothing of the harmonic content and making a nice smooth vintage sound on vocals and other instruments.
The Phoenix II tape emulation process not only incorporates the nonlinear saturation characteristics created by magnetic tape itself, but also includes the interrelation of an analog tape recorder’s record/reproduce electronics and equalization curves.
INSIGNA is a tube equalizer in a 500 series package, using a dual triode circuit with a 12AX7 tube. The three bands work by using buffered RC circuits in the negative feedback path around the tube amplifiers. The result is a fat sounding eq rich in second harmonic triode tube color.
SYREN is a classic sounding tube preamp in a 500 series package, using a dual triode circuit with a 12AX7 tube. SYREN features a dual gain stage circuit and allows overdrive effects.
FALCON is a classic sounding tube compressor in a 500 series package.FALCON features 3 attack and 3 release time settings, hard and soft knee choices for compression or limiting, two different audio path sounds, wet-dry mixing for parallel compression, and is linkable.
TRAKKER is a high quality Single Channel Discrete Class A Compressor-Limiter. It functions either as a musically transparent compressor or as a vintage compressor-limiter with selectable hard or soft knee. It can create distinct new sounds or maximize existing ones. The TRAKKER has adjustable threshold, attack, release, knee shape, and makeup gain controls. In addition to these controls, a function switch allows the selection of transparent operation or vintage operations such as optical, air optical, soft knee, and hard knee – each with four different amplifier/gain control sounds.
The STC-8 is a high quality compressor that delivers consistent gain control without sacrificing musical definition or harmonic richness. It utilizes a remarkably dependable peak limiter that provides overload protection that is critical to digital recording and broadcast transmitters. The STC-8 is engineered to provide musically transparent gain control, but is also capable of emulating vintage equipment and creating distinctive new sounds. In addition, a switchable enhancement circuit creates analog and tube-like warmth to enrich lifeless audio and digital recordings. This vast flexibility is simplified by the inclusion of several optimized presets, allowing fast, easy set-up on a wide variety
Spider is a high quality eight channel mic-preamplifier mixer with two types of digital outputs: stereo and eight channel. The stereo output is for recording engineers who do stereo or multi-channel recording and want a very flexible audio path. The eight channel output allows the system to function as an analog front end for DAWs, digital mixers, and modular digital recorders.
IBIS is an analog equalizer that boldly takes equalization to a new level of musicality. Each of its four bands features switch-selectable frequencies centered on and covering musical-step intervals from 32-Hz “C” to 22.35-kHz “F.” Its four overlapping bands are labeled with note names and frequency allowing for the first time a “translation” between musician-speak and engineer-jargon. The bandwidth control has similar notation with adjustment from 0.2 octave to 4 octaves per band and a boost / cut range of 12 dB.
Flamingo is a high quality two channel discrete class A microphone pre-amp. It can be operated as a musically transparent pre-amplifier, but is capable of emulating vintage sounds as well as creating distinctive new ones.
