Vintage Tube Program Equalizer

Designed in 1951 by Eugene Shenk, this program equalizer is still revered today for its performance and quality. Totally passive with push-pull tube stage amplifiers. Two units, previously refurbished, have been sampled. This equalizer is renowned for its unique ability to boost and cut the same frequencies simultaneously, thereby creating a resonant shelf. The wide range of equalization curves provided makes it possible to boost the very low or very high frequency notes without “muddying up" the middle register instruments, this made the unit useful for mixing and mastering use. It has also always been famous for making audio program sound better just by passing through it even in "bypass" mode.


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.
