Tube Bender by CDSM

Postby pipamail » Fri Aug 19, 2011 1:34 pm

Just discovered this library and all I can say is WOW! :D
Definitely my favorite one for the moment.
Still experimenting and learning how to use it, but it's power feels enormous.
I had very good results using Correct Low & Correct Hi in parallel for example.
Maybe someone has any interesting tips for this library usage from his experience?

It IS a very cool library. At first it seemed very limiting since there are very few adjustable parameters. But as I dug deeper, like you are, I found that there are so many ways to use it. As coloring preamps, almost transparent shimmer, very colorful eq's.... I like to use it on tracks that I want to have their own spot in a mix without jumping out too obviously. Michael's libraries are amazing.

I bought tube bender about a year ago.
I also thought it was limited, but I found
that my imagiantion was limited instead!
It's a great library, really good for shaping
and sculpting.
You can get really tight kicks, snares and toms
out of this one.

Thanks for Your FB :D
More I experiment with this library more I love it. The workflow becomes absolutely less orthodox & not so boring-n-predictable. Exactly what I was looking for :idea: Nice tool for breaking rules

Hi
Does "CORRECT_HI" allow me to either boost or cut? In what way is it corrective?

Can I select a frequency with the Tube Shaper EQ. Or what is its function?

From the cdsoundmaster.com :

Corrective EQ
These are used to place after any eq in the "MD1", "MD2", or "MD3" eq programs if you wish to use them at a flatter frequency response. This is recommended where there is more concern for accuracy over the effect of sound manipulation.


Actually there are not many usage hints nor on the site neither in the readme.

You can select frequencies, but the beauty of this library is not there. It has different EQs & Preamps (with various frecuency curves), some programs are not tweakable at all, you just stick one on a track and it sounds different - and very often exactly in the way you wanted it to sound :D
