SKnote announce "Marconi1" - "73" Preamp and EQ, hands on circuits.

This is our Christmas gift for this year.



Get the circuits of one of the most famous and emulated consoles, both preamp and EQ sections, model it on a "component level", hack the components to give a broad palette of sounds and give the user the options to set aging, quality, style of the main parts. This is what Marconi1 is all about. No black boxes, no analysis, just circuits.

Use it to give weight and color, to shape the sound, then select the options for transformers, inductors, capacitors, to see what happens. Use it as an overdrive if you want.

Transformers: different cores, mu-metal parameters, windings.

Capacitors: could be aged, loose insulation, have different responses if modern, paper-oil, new, old.

Inductors: we all know, real inductors don't behave as ideal ones. They could saturate. Or not.

Marconi1 is going to be released for general test next Dec 20th as VST/AU/AAX (Native, DSP immediately or following) and officially released after first stability checks.

It is being announced today to give a time-slot opportunity:

- Are you already a customer: you don't need to do anything, it is our gift for Christmas. You'll find it activated in your user area.

- Not yet a customer but were thinking of getting one product and become a customer? Get a product now, before this one is out. Yes, any one.

Hoping you'll enjoy this one

After the release it is going to be available for purchase with a launch MSRP 49.99$. Includes all formats: VST/AU/AAX/DSP/32/64 and soon on Raspberry Pi as a standalone processor.

Wow, a xmas gift from Quinto! I think this is the first one ever (sorry, that sounds sarcastic, it's not meant to be, I'm just pleasantly surprised and very pleased).

I love the idea of being able to play with the "electronics" and have some fun. I look forward to opening my present soon

Thanks Quinto!

@ quintosardo : Sorry to hijack this thread shortly, but I have tried to reach you both via email and facebook without luck. I am having trouble loging in to the new site to re-download some plugins. Where can I reach you?

Thanks
