London Acoustics - OSAKA MIX EQ is a custom-built, solid-state parametric equalizer designed with no compromise on quality. It features LOW SHELF, LOW-MID and HIGH-MID PARAMETRIC, and HI SHELF parameter controls, somewhat Oxford-esque in inspiration, though specially developed for mixing purposes, to bring a wide palette of color to your mixes.
OSAKA MIX EQ features a second preamp stage called DRIFT+, an additional preamp stage with custom circuitry, sampled and developed entirely by London Acoustics to emphasize the “analog feel” of this equipment.
“Analogue Drift” is in regard to the effect of the component’s temperature altering its sonic character, over time.
All of these subtle variations are usually due to naturally occurring reactions in circuitry that have not been compensated for in the design. This phenomenon is also known as the (with a slightly less glamorous name) “Flaw/Feature effect”.
This effect gives, in the physical hardware domain, more openness and the impression of more air, and more subtle enhancement of dynamic, to make your recording sound more “alive”. The Analogue DRIFT+ feature is an integral part of that sonic character that gives vintage signal processors that analog sound.
With DRIFT+, we have harnessed this effect and brought it in line with current audio standards: recreating this effect in an amplified way, improving the fidelity, widening the frequency spectrum and response.
The DRIFT+ option is well suited to nearly every kind of track, mixing group, and sometimes even worth try on the master bus!
In order to use products from the official 3rd party developers:
- It is mandatory first to install either N4 Player or N4. Only after this step, it is possible to proceed with the installation of 3rd party products.
- Please don't install both versions of N4 - use only one of them to guarantee the proper functioning of the products!
- Please make sure that you use an up-to-date version of N4 or N4 Player (at the point of this release N4 is version 1.1.012).
- N4 FREE and N4 Player cannot coexist.
Use our new application Aquarius (see the User Guide in Aquarius page) to complete the procedure of installation and authorization; 3rd party developers' products are only available on Aquarius.
