WesAudio _PROMETHEUS

Is fully analogue passive EQ with +24dBu of headroom. It features pultec-style warm sound with a lot of innovative improvements. Its modern approach to design allows instant recall of your classic vibe through very flexible plugin available in most common formats. _PROMETHEUS as all ng500 products, integrates with your DAW environment via front panel USB socket or _TITAN chassis.

Classic passive sound-shaping mojo

Prometheus offers two bands of classic passive equalization with a Pultec-style twist that lets you both boost and cut in an overlapping range of upper-mid and high frequencies. The faceplate is fitted with six touch-sensitive encoders allowing for automation of each parameter within your DAW. Prometheus features proprietary analogue circuit control that eliminates glitches and artefacts due to encoder movement, allowing for full automation without unwelcome side effects. LF Boost/Cut is selectable between 20, 30, 60, 100, 120, and 250Hz. HF Boost is selectable between 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 12, and 16kHz and offers a variable Bandwidth encoder. HF Cut is selectable between 4, 8, 12, and 20kHz. A post-EQ Output encoder is provided. The Boost and Cut controls are also rotary encoders.

Prometheus really breaks away from the pack, offering full control and automation via its free companion plug-in, with connection to your computer handled by a front-panel USB jack, or via WesAudio's _TITAN ng500 Recall Chassis.

Total recall with ng500 Chassis Design

WesAudio, a company masterminded by Radoslaw Wesolowski and headquartered in Poland, is spearheading an initiative they call ng500. The "ng" stands for next-generation. The company's ng500 product line starts with 500 Series modules that have a special connector, an extension of the standard connector found on all 500 Series modules. The extra pins on the extended connector mate with receiver connectors in WesAudio's _TITAN ng500 Recall Chassis.

You don't need a _TITAN to use Prometheus; ng500 modules are fully functional in most standard 500 Series racks.

Main features:

  • Not standalone — requires compatible 500 Series chassis/power supply
  • ng500 compatible with full support for WesAudio's _TITAN Recall Chassis
  • Passive stereo/dual-mono/mid–side 2-band analogue EQ
  • 6 touch-sensitive encoders allow for automation of each parameter
  • Innovative analogue circuit control eliminates glitches and artefacts' due to pot movement
  • Because knob movement causes no noise, full automation is feasible without side effects
  • HF Cut, selectable between 4, 8, 12, and 20kHz
  • HF Boost, selectable between 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 12, and 16kHz; variable Q
  • LF Boost/Cut, selectable between 20, 30, 60, 100, 120, and 250Hz
  • Post-EQ Output control for enhanced flexibility
  • Hardware A/B for easy comparison between two settings
  • Proprietary THD (Med/High switchable) lets you add Total Harmonic Distortion to saturate your signal with beautiful analogue colour
  • Flexible DAW/live plug-in control for instant recall
  • Stereo plug-in: handles all modes of operation – stereo, dual-mono, and mid–side
  • Mono plug-in: two separate instances can connect to same hardware, managing each channel separately
  • I/O metering with clip detection
  • Plug-in comes in AAX/AAX DSP/VST3/VST2/AU
  • +24dBu of headroom
  • True bypass
