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.
