Product Description for the Positive Grid BIAS Pro Series EQ
PRO SERIES PLUG-INS
Over the past decade, professional effects plug-ins have been about authentic analog emulation of original hardware, with either a black-box approach or circuit analysis and emulation. This gives musicians an easy-to-use user interface and faithful reproduction of analog tone in the digital domain.
Looking forward, the question is how we can create new tools to maximize the sound quality and usability with today’s new technology, with faster processors and memory, matching analysis, advanced nonlinear processing, and a cloud-based worldwide community. What can we do better, smarter, and more efficient?
Positive Grid teamed up the world’s brightest DSP engineers and component level modeling and matching authorities, working with the world’s leading producers, world-class engineers, and mixing & mastering gurus to develop some breakthrough technologies to bring software plug-ins to the next level.
The world’s first and unique compression matching works by measuring the dynamic response, pre and post filters, nonlinear transformer characteristics, and attack, release, and ratio curves to capture the nuanced sound of any compressor.
It accurately recreates the underlying architecture of the best compressors in the world, with the most intuitive user interface ever in a desktop plug-in. Audio engineers and musicians will now have virtual access to a wide assortment of the best compressors in the world, no longer limited by the traditional plugin architecture.
After years of research and development with the world’s best DSP engineers, we are proud to introduce a new way of EQ matching, one that truly recreates real world outboard analog equalizers – for the first time at component level. We used analog filters to match the frequency response for each EQ module: digital, tube, and passive EQ.
The EQ match works by analyzing the signal from the input track and side chain track – you can even see the frequency response of the matching process in real time. It then analyzes the difference curve between input and side chain, and automatically adjusts the controls to match the different curves.
The Pro Series EQ match process uses analog filters to match the frequency response difference, without adding post filters to compensate the frequency response difference. The end result is a more natural sound with real world analog sound characteristics.
