Very good point & added! Thanks for pointing that out--I don't visit the demo download pages as often as I used to anymore.

Hmmm... I think there is some misunderstanding going on here. The "EQ" section doesn't actually EQ the input signal but merely determines which parts of the audio spectrum generates saturation. They're saturation bands rather than EQ bands, really. Disable one and you actually disable the saturation for that particular frequency range.

Does that make any sense?

Edit: you figured it out by yourself before I managed to finish my post. heh

Hi,

That e-mail addy doesn't seem to work. Yahoo mail gives me an error...

"There was a problem!
The recipient info doesn't seem quite right. Please look it over and try again."

I tried it without the brackets too, but got a send failure.

Any ideas?

Cheers

The company's name is 112dB, so how many dB are "lotsofdB"?

Wow demoing now.

So far I am Luving this the texture this thing wraps around the sound. Dnt knw if I am judging with my ears or heart but at the moment I am happy.

DJ u did it again with this one.

your eq is always in my chain mainly for the dynamic section/de-esser.

cant wait to purchase this after further testing which I doubt I even need as my mind is already made up.thumbsup

This product appears to be really quite deep. Impressive tonal range whilst remaining subtle. It sounds great so far.

One sentence review:

I tried it, I liked it, it's easy on CPU, so I bought it.

The pain.. the horror... I have to wait another 2 hours at least before I can try this thing out. If I only could just skip the last 2 hours and go home right now.

No.. that's not possible I'm affraid.

I have not tested the preamp plugin enough..

but the reverb is one of the best I've heard in the plugin realm..

ups. why did I miss that?
good work guys! will try more and report back.

This is a terrific plug in. Buying!

Sounds great, maps beautifully on the Smart console.

Another YEEHAW! from here too..

I've used reverb since it was released and recommend it, and today bought Preamp straight off... Excellent work!

(see my other post about EQ.. LOL)

I like it so much I've posted my digidesign reel tape saturation license for sale on DUC...

I'm also thinking of buying it. This one goes deep, lots of gainstages. Turning the drive knob kind of compresses the signal, playing with the make-up gain and the ceiling saturates the signal and then there are the tone knobs, to saturate different bands. The warmth knob is a sort of lowpass filter...

And it sounds good! Saturating only the mid bands on a drumbuss while playing with the dry/wet button and sweeping through the frequencies sounds great! The operation of the plug is quite innovative.

I am still having problems fuguring out if its better now or not with the preamp plugin..

Will make a new mix next week.

The reverb kills! good bye CSR.

Would using an instance on every channel emulate an analog console / summing?

As well as any other saturation plug IMO. Plus the 112db Preamp can be way more subtle than other plugs of a similar purpose. It is also more versatile regarding the shape of the sound.

Try it. If you know what you're doing with it, I doubt you'll be disappointed. And it's certainly more than efficient enough to be used on every track.

Another good and versatile "Saturation" processor that I have had a very good experience with on an old mix recently is this new vst: MeldaProduction MMultiBandSaturator

Hey DJ!

Congrats on the new plug!!!

Does this plug have Control Surface support for the Digi 002?

I ask because Redline Reverb & Redline EQ do not.

Not on my system anyway...


PowerMac G5 DualCore 2.3 (PPC) with 8GB of RAM, Tiger 10.4.11,
Digidesign Digi 002 (Console), Pro Tools LE 7.4cs10

Thanks!

Some people make a big fuss about this. I suppose there could be some smart theories behind where in the chain to put a saturation plugin, but personally, with this sort of plugin I feel it can go first, middle, or last.

I mean, if you had a wicked hardware preamp and you were going to send your DAW tracks through it, I'm sure it would sound good if you sent them through before EQ/compression OR after EQ/compression. Either way you'd be getting nice analog saturation.

Well I think the same applies to a plug like Redline Preamp. You could saturate first in the chain so that your EQ / compression decisions are influenced by the saturation effect, or you could get your tracks 90% there with EQ / compression first, then polish off that extra 10% with some careful saturation afterward.

The point is, there are no rules with this stuff. If it sounds good, it's good.

Cheers.

I guess if you wanted to simulate analog summing you put it it last on everything except the master... on the master put it first.
