Softube is offering a significant discount of 87% on its Passive-Active Pack Sale. This collection includes three unique and highly usable equalizer models that are exclusive to Softube. Each equalizer in the pack has its own character and quirks, offering a range of possibilities for sound design.
The Passive-Active Pack features the Passive Equalizer, the Active Equalizer, and the Focusing Equalizer. The Passive and Active equalizers are modeled after real workhorse units used in thousands of recordings from the past to the present. The Focusing Equalizer combines these features with analog-sounding saturation and a novel workflow.
The Passive Equalizer is modeled after a famous German passive three-band equalizer. It is known for its wide bandwidth and clear, open sound. The low boost provides a warm low end, ideal for enhancing a bass drum or bass guitar track. The high boost is crisp and open, adding life to any track. The high cut allows for the removal of highs in a musical way.
The Active Equalizer, on the other hand, is modeled after an active equalizer design from the Swiss Alps in the 1970s. Unlike the Passive Equalizer’s wide and unintrusive sound, the Active Equalizer has a tight and focused sound, making it a useful tool for detailed sound design. It features low and high cut, three parametric bands with selectable gain in 2dB steps, selectable frequency with overlapping but non-interfering bands, and a choice between a narrow or wide peak for each band.
The Focusing Equalizer is Softube’s unique take on the EQ concept. This equalizer works in a very musical way and simplifies the sound design process by making some choices for the user. Despite its limited set of options, the Focusing Equalizer offers a creative and useful workflow. It allows users to choose between Passive or Active EQ character and features a three-band EQ that automatically and musically changes with Low and High Cut. Additionally, it includes a built-in one-knob saturation with metering and selectable saturation type.
This Softube Passive-Active Pack Sale offers a great opportunity for sound engineers and music producers to acquire three distinct equalizers at a significantly reduced price. With their unique features and capabilities, these equalizers can be a valuable addition to any sound design toolkit.
