"ARQ" from CDS Now Released !!!

Postby cdsoundmaster » Sat Jun 08, 2013 10:13 am

CDS is pleased to announce our newest release for Nebula Pro:

The "A-RANGE EQ AND CHANNEL STRIP For Nebula Pro" !!! It is truly "da King" of A-Range designs!

It is extremely true to the original, with a few enhancements:

Cleaner and more dimensional Jensen input and output transformers. This provides the entire channel, with line, mic, and eq, clean and harmonics.

The EQ has the exact same high shelf filters, along with an additional 20kHz shelf.
The EQ has the identical high mid bells and an additional 1.5kHz filter.
The EQ has the identical low mid bells and an added 150Hz filter.
The EQ has the identical low shelf and an added 30Hz filter.
I have taken the High and Low pass and named them Hi/Lo Cut. There is a 25 Hz high pass (low cut in NebPro) and not the original 50Hz and 100Hz, the logic being that you can use the 30Hz or 100Hz from low shelf in the same slope as the pass filter and still use them simultaneously- which is identical to having them as a selected pass.
20kHz low pass (low cut in NebPro) without 9kHz, 12kHz, or 15kHz, because in this design you can use the 15kHz or 12kHz shelf the same as the pass simultaneously with the 20kHz pass. The end result is more flexibility with the extreme highs that sound so amazing that were not available in the original shelf, and the only single feature lost at all is a 9kHz low pass that is wider than anything used in tracking anyway.

Been using this new library for the past couple of days, putting it through it's passes. So far I love it's Low-Mid. Lows can be a bit wooly, but using "less is more" while compensating with the Low-Mid seems to be the right concept for using the Low section. I haven't quite grasped the Pre/Line section. I still need to get to know these better, but it's hands down that perfect EQ to compliment my Pultec, N**e and A*I Eq's. This is a must have.

@ Michael - How do you recommend using the HLC presets or the placement of the Line and Pre presets? Especially the the Low and High Cuts, since the display only shows as 0.0khz or 1.0khz when you move the faders

Thanks

Michael answers the questions regarding the HP/LP (HC/LC) in his first post. When you load the HC/LC preset, they load defaulted to off. So when you move it to it's only other position, you have enabled it. He lists the cut-off frequencies and suggests using them in conjunction with the shelves. It's actually quite brilliant.
This is an amazing library. I just did a mix, as an experiment, using this library for the only eq on the entire mix. While lacking the surgical precision, it fit everything.

I see and thanks for the explanation, Richie.

Why not give us the real filters from the hardware piece, too? Unless a real A-Range wasn't used to develop these presets, so sampling the real filters isn't optional. Michael, can you perhaps tell us more about the original piece?

Thanks

based on michael's coded language in the first post, i'm thinking this is the unit sampled in this library:
