Thumbs up Siemens W295b EQ IR's by PTF Reverbs

Siemens W295b EQ IR's by PTF Reverbs-siemens-w295b-eq-cover.jpg

SIEMENS W295b ANALOG VINTAGE GERMAN EQ

This is our take on this legendary EQ. Our favorite solid-state EQ.

What this EQ can do with the highs and lows are second to none!

Up there with any Neve and API. In some cases even better!

We have sampled all given frequencies with every boost and cut possibilities.

Bass +15 / -15

Treble +15 / -15

0,7/1,0/1,5/2,3/3,5/5,6 kHz +8 / -8

Sounds amazing on acoustic guitar, bass, overheads, vocals, full mixes, you name it!

The air this EQ can give you is just phenomenal.

You will get 140 IR’s in this set.

(70 44,1 kHz IR’s + 70 96 kHz IR's)

Check out the demos in extreme boost settings;



Available now at; www.gumroad.com/pasttofuturereverbs

We are proud to bring you sounds you can’t find anywhere else!

Cab IR Players are the best for these kind of short IR's.

Yup, lovely. Bass on this is gorgeous. Got a few more packs, the Studer169 is lovely, too. Nice one!

Why don't you make (or contract or use an open source) IR loader and put a GUI on top of it so this looks and behaves like any other VST plugin when playing with dials? You would basically be doing what Acustica is doing, except with IRs instead of whatever-it-is-that-acustica-does.

If you did that, I would be very interested in this, but as it stands, I can't see myself flipping through IR's to apply EQ. Hopefully you see this as constructive and encouraging feedback, as that is how it is meant to come across.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Yes, that will be The next step for us and yes we are looking for someone who can do this and work with us.
Let's see what the future holds

This is awesome. I think it's my favourite EQ too, amazing how 'unEQed' things sound.

Over the years I've collected most of the W295B plugins — CDSoundMaster, Tim Petherick, Soundtoys, and now this, my logic being to mix and match as if using multiple hardware units and getting the mojo that that brings.

I even sometimes put a Petherick on the L channel and a Michael Angel on the R — super duper stereo goodness right there. Now I've got more units to choose from!

Cheers

I very much will. I prefer this to the Acustica thing, referring to what people were suggesting you do in this thread. The sound of 'normal' convolution tech is subjectively less intrusive than the AA tech, which to me has a 'sound of the sampler' as if the AA tech is a hardware sampler with a haze and softness to it. This doesn't do that.

If you start doing eq plugins with this under the hood, I am all in!! Get a SERIOUSLY nice chain of conversion going and build us some sample based eq plugs out of classic units, pretty please. Not like there is anything wrong wth whatever chain you're using now, but I'd go to town on this, even if you rent it for the task. Go all out. Even pick cables for the loop from comparisons of a couple. Grimm TPR should be included imho. Would be insanely awesome!

A tip would be, forget interpolation for non stepped units, just take loads of samples, and make them stepped. But with small steps, so you never really want an in between. Then the sound is always just how the sample is, full quality. And if you make frequency selection boost steps, make them notes. And make some interesting units, like you already do. First request: a Urei 546, pretty please......and an MCI eq would be pretty amazing. And if you do what you did with the Studer 169 on an MCI 400, that would also be awesome.... :-) As would doing it to other interesting consoles and line amps.

Sorry, got excited and spouted. Loving the idea of all these potential tools as this doesn't mess with mic recordings the way 'normal' plugs do.....

I wholeheartedly agree with every single word here, and I too would be all-in.

Would it be possible to sample the preamp section from API 560 EQ?

Hi! I was about to ask exactly this.... Old Nebula user here.
Impressed by the A80 and 169 pack. And obviously this W295b!
Will there be a possibility to listen to the demos in WAV?

Thanks, yes for example on bass guitar, when you boost the bass with the Siemens it sounds like you switch to another neck pick up or something

Also the high freq. are amazing. You can boost +15 without getting deaf and you still like the results

Yea my bad. I actually confused the PEV for the 295. Don't ask me why.
True there are both the W492 W495 in addition to the PEV which i personally like
