GMC & GEQ

Postby yr » Wed Oct 20, 2010 9:02 am

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if someone will be kind enough to post an audio sample that was processed using only the input/buss presets of the new GMC (with the original file as reference of course). I'm very curious about the sonic signature this console has without using the EQ.

For those interested, I've created a small comparison between the GMC EQ (demo preset)and the GEQ. I've used both on a short piece of classical music that was recorded live. I've only used the main stereo pair (NOS configuration) for the test with a touch of reverb (added prior to processing with Nebula). The "original" file was processed with the GMC EQ demo preset (+4dB@10kHz) and the GEQ shelf (+4dB@12kHz) which yield similar results frequency wise (vst analyzer pics@44kHz included for both presets).The sound levels of the GEQ/GMC files were matched.

You can download the zip file here:

Best,

Yuval, these programs are somewhat like other clean console output buss programs from Alex I think. If you like these you will for sure like the GMC programs. The GMC input and GMC ouput program are both subtle but they do come alive in the mastering chain in a very nice way. Put the eq in between and you will be perfectly happy ;-)

Hi,
The only AlexB console I own is the MWC, which is actually too colored for my purposes most of the time. For the kind of work I normally do subtle differences are quite a big deal, so I'm curious about the GMC sound. As you can hear from the files I've posted, while the GMC and GEQ EQ both sound good and perfectly fine for mastering classical music, they do sound quite different nonetheless.

I don't have the MWC programs so I don't know how the clean output buss program sounds. But I have CLC, MBC and VBC and their clean output buss program sounds subtle to me. But it all depends on your mix, does it need colour or not?

I don't have listen to your files but I don't think you can match the GEQ exactly with the GMC. They will always sound different.

The corresponding vst analyzer plots are included in the original zip file. The high frequency boosts in the settings that were used are actually very similar, with the GMC showing a gentle role-off in the lower frequencies. The sound of this units is of-course quite different duo to the different design/harmonic response etc.

I do like slight coloration, but the VBC and MTC are not subtle enough for my needs, so I'm hoping to get a chance to hear the GMC input/buss presets.

I think you will like the GMC input & output, I will render the track tonight.

here are two examples of stereo-recordings, saxophon and percussion.

here is a dropboxlink, don't know if this works:

https://www.dropbox.com/link/17.3VWYo1- ... 42362929b0

there is a zip-file with all together and the files separately.

Thank you Mathias. Great saxophone track. The GMC has a subtle but noticeable effect. Seems to make the instruments sound more "distinct" without changing the tonal balance. Very pleasant sound.

i like the saxophones too :-)
it is a snippet from a macedonian song, played from a band here from this region (al jawala). it is the raw track, recorded with two tube-condensers in x/y configuration. you can hear the bass playing in background.

i like the gmc-library for the "distinction", you mentioned.
and yes, it doesn't change the tonal balance, which is important for me too.

hope this helped in your buying-decision,
greetings, mathias
