ClassicTone-560 is modeled after a famous vintage EQ from the 70's. Lot of punch and awesome musicality for that american sound.
This is an incredible EQ, and one could surely mix an album with this powerful tool alone. The 10 bands, featuring proportional Q, are great for scupting guitar or drums sounds. The mids are especially punchy and do wonders on snare, vocals, piano etc.
There's several 560 plugin recreations around, so why another one? Well, hearing ClassicTone-560 will answer the question for itself.
Until now, our ears were not really convinced, by all those competitors. Some were quite good on their own and useable, but none were making us truly “smile” either (like what happen when using the hardware).
ClassicTone-560 acheive accurate recreation thru convolution of 'samples' from the hardware, made using hi-end mastering converters and cables.
Now with ClassicTone-560, that sound is present again, and the smile too. ClassicTone-560 really talks about TONE. Just push those tasty faders and you'll immediatly see what we mean.
Here are some key features of "ClassicTone-560":
10 bands gains:
· ClassicTone-56 features 10 bands. From low to high the bands are: 31 Hz, 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz and 16 kHz. All bands are capable of 12 dB of boost or cut.
· This EQ has been modeled exactly. 0 dB Gain settings still provide a slight color from the electronic rich signal path.
· Alt + click to reset the fader to 0dB. Shift + drag over several faders to “draw a curve”. Alt+shift+drag overs several faders to reset them all. Double click value readout for entering numerical data.
· Each band features 'proportional Q', meaning that the Q will narrow along the boost. Small boost will have wide Q, while big boost will have a tighter/narrower Q.
· Adjusts the output gain between -12 db and +12 dB.
· Double click for entering numerical data.
· VST/AU/RTAS host
· The demo version cannot recall parameters settings.
· The retail version recall parameters settings, and the timeout limitation is removed once authorization is completed.
