Cranesong Ibis - cut and color knob


I was checking out the Cranesong Ibis and I understand that when doing a “cut” the color knob if engaged will subtract the harmonic content. I find this feature very interesting and I wonder if there's any other machine or plugin to reduce the harmonic content of a specific band.

Hi JSilver,
somehow ran into your thread and see no one answered.. I'm no electronics expert but I used to spend some time with Dave at the AES and Messe in Europe as I worked for some years for one of his distributors. As far as I know, the color knob on a cutting channel will add harmonics with reverted polarity. In small quantities you could say this will substract harmonics, but of course if you do a big cut, it's quite possible to substract more harmonics than what was there in the first place. Which can give some quite grungy effects.. I remember setting the Ibis up with the two mid bands more or less on the same frequency range, one max boost the other max cut, and then adding the color to the cutting band. Not what it was designed for but worth a try - if you are not trying to get smooth natural sounds, haha..
Dave is a genius, and very nice fellow
