Ladies and gentleman, behold: the all new, all analog, all powerful Clariphonic MS! This magical equalizer not only expands on the features and capabilities of the original Clariphonic, it also extends the functionality of every other piece of gear in your rack while sporting the same eye-popping, silky smooth sound that made the original a desert island mix buss EQ for thousands of engineers worldwide. (People’s eyes really do pop open the first time they hear this eq for themselves). Clariphonic MS includes the most popular user-requested features from the past 7 years plus a few nobody thought to ask for, including 41-step detented pots for fast and precise recall, a single-switch relay-based Master Bypass, and a new Cut mode on the Focus band which gently softens and darkens harsh upper-mids the way analog tape used to. But the heart of the new Clariphonic MS is a state-of-the-art Mid-Side processing, which doesn’t just unleash the power of MS processing on the Clariphonic: rear-panel pre-eq Mid and Side inserts allow you to use any processor in your rack in MS mode – any compressor, any eq, even colored preamps and stereo effects units – before dusting the result with the Clariphonic’s unique magic.

Diving further into the ITB workflow, I'm working on the soundtrack for next major Kush promo vid, and the hi hats keep bugging me. I'm craving my old friend tape, so I keep putting various tape emulator plugins on the mix buss and while they smooth things out, they kill other transients and fader rides I spent so much time crafting. Then it occurs to me: just put the damn tape sim on the overheads, which is where the problem lays. It's amazing how little drive I needed to get the effect I wanted. It's not just about the tone of the transient (although I do have a strong dislike of hi hats recorded straight to digital), it's also about the groove, the way the little articulations make the rhythm dance a certain way. Tape is the most incredible tool I know of to shape those overly-exuberant spiky little ‘tiks’ and reign them in to a sweet, even-tempered series of 'ch-ch-CH-ch'. Kramer Master Tape was just the ticket. I tried the VTM but Kramer makes it easier to get that slightly darker, 3-5k focus I prefer, rather than the VTM’s softer, ‘prettier’ 10k which always sounds more wispy to me, not as ballsy. I don’t dig an extended, pretty top end when the music wants to be greasy and grimy! Roll that shit off!!! Gregory Scott - ubk
