EQing into pre for color. Kush / Shadow Hills Sound Enhancers & Exciters (HW)

EQing into pre for color. Kush / Shadow Hills

Hello Slutz

I have a Shadow Hills Quad Four and a Kush Electra headed my way in the mail.

Looking forward to running some sources out of my DAW into the quad four preamp for color.

Anyone ever EQ into a preamp for color? Aka pushing certain freqs harder or lesser through the preamp.

I may be a fool but I’m interested in trying this on individual instruments and drum overheads or subgroups. Synth bus etc. like a bus eq. But then hit the preamp hard or pretty hard and bringing that on in under in parallel.

Is it crazy to think of this technic as akin to the BIAS control on a Culture Vulture ?

Looking forward to your responses.

Here for the gear

It's great to experiment, and SH & Kush should deliver nicely. It's nice to have a broad range of colouring units that do different tasks. EQing into pre can saturate certain freqs without clipping before re-entering capture machine. Dance music ppl do this constantly to find the sound needed.

Experimenting takes Time.

Nice pieces in the post.

Incredible. Thanks for the reply. That’s squarely the world I’m in. With a little singing on top!

This encouragement openned me up to eqing itb our to my rnd pre. Getting insane feel changing results.

When my quad comes I’ll get on that too!
I admit I did buy it cause it looks so cool.
