"Clariphonique," a Kush Clariphonic-like parallel EQ rack

Post by unix23 » Mon Jul 07, 2014 11:55 pm

I built an effects rack for Ableton Live that roughly works (roughly) like the Kush Audio Clariphonic, a nifty parallel EQ.

If you try it out, let me know what you think.

In a nutshell: The black macros are toggles, the white macros are gain.

Tight is for a bell-shaped EQ, Diffuse is for a shelf.

Try "tight" for percussion, lead sounds, even bass to make them more findable by the ear.
Turn it up until it's a little too much then back it off.

Silk and sheen are nice on a bus or even the master. If you use it in multiple places during a mix, back them off a bit because it adds up and too much is brittle/harsh.

Because of how the macro mapping had to work for the EQs, it you set it up tight without turning up the focus, you'll only roll off the top, so don't do that.

Very cool man, I haven't heard an original to compare, but I like the way it sounds.
