Vintage Submix

Custom designed and hand-made by AlexB, the sidecar console is based on eight legendary vintage Class AB mic-preamps and equalizers which come from the 70's era "with a lot of character" (Neve 1081). The summing amp has a vintage design of pure Class A with Carnhill transformers which gives that “in your face” Neev sound.
A professional studio requested me to build this sidecar console for their dance-techno production, choosing the rich, dynamics and fat sound it has. Its high bandwidth pure audio path, superior dynamics and greater control make the Neev 81 Sidecar Console the first choice for recording and mixing Rock, Pop, Dance and more.


The programs:

Carefully sampled @ 44.1kHz and 96kHz, without introduction of noise or aliasing, in a professional recording studio with custom converters built specifically for NAT3 which outperforms $20k commercial converters. High end cables, with particular care to the connections, levels and impedance matching were used to translate the sonic qualities of this priceless devices into the Nebula software technology. Every volume change, gain change, frequency change is tested and accurately programmed without destructive digital processing for optimized sound and then compared to the original device. The result is a virtually indistinguishable digital replication of this landmark device.
The programs don't sound processed, harsh or digital as most plugins do, but instead sound like a natural extension of the original audio, gluing your tracks in the mix with an analog vibe.
