The quintessential all Tube Analog Mastering Chain
Dictator is designed to be as versatile as possible on modern materials and will easily integrate into today’s production practice to process two-channel stereo tracks while maintaining the most accurate stereo operation as possible.
Dictator’s controls are also designed along this main aspect. In connection with the creation of the dual mono version, the interoperability of the two channels is still important, but the two sides each include a completely separately parameterizable vari-u compressor, with almost the full functionality of the original Dictator on each side.
Accordingly all controls are implemented with switches to allow operation on the two compressors with the same settings. The side-chain, of course, remained linkable. Based on these, it can be said that the Dictator Dual Mono is a two-channel tube dynamics processor, it can be pulsing on a master-bus or it can produce crispy saturation alongside never existed transients and dirty breaks. Or work as a simple saturation with minimal dynamic control. Now either on standalone tracks or while recording.
Empress is a dual channel passive equalizer with more precision than ever before.
What would be your first though when you hear the term “passive equalizer”? At first, probably you think about the airy high frequency components, the rich subs and the widely applicable cuts and boosts which can be used alongside each other.
These types of equalisers have been around since the early 50’s, the most famous Pultec EQP-1 from Pulse Techniques was the first one that provided simultaneously passive filter circuits alongside high quality line amplifiers. The downside of the EQP-1 was the lack of ability to carry out precision frequency isolation, but it was able to change any sound in its core. Many of the modern equalizers are based on the original EQP-1 in both structure and functions that could be limiting in a modern music environment and production.
