CDSoundMaster is pleased to present our second release from the
"Vintage Tube Series":

"The Tube Bender EQ Collection" - Completely Tunable, Natural, All-Tube, Harmonic Distortion EQ for the Nebula Commercial Plug-in.

Now available from the website for everyone!

You must be logged in to see this link.

"The Tube Bender EQ Collection" - $59


Combo -
"The Vintage Tube Collection + The Tube Bender EQ Collection " - $98


With our first release in this series, "The Vintage Tube Collection", we brought the unique sound of several classic vintage dual triode vacuum tubes to the Nebula Plug-in, utilizing our completely unique, proprietary-design hardware, the Source + Plus Dual-Stage sound processor. This device, designed to fill a niche in the mastering field and also for multiple tasks in mixing, tracking, and recording, the Source + Plus is a transformerless design, and is completely custom, hand-built, using all point-to-point wiring for the absolute best in analog sound. Several rare vintage tubes were sampled at light, medium, and heavy settings, providing the natural sound of tubes within the user's DAW.

Now, with the second release in the "Vintage Tube Series", we are taking the possibilities of natural tube harmonic software to the next level, showing once again the amazing abilities of the Nebula plug-in! This collection is the realization of the challenge to bring moderate-to-heavy natural overdrive distortion to Nebula Commercial. This is not an attempt to replace your distortion pedal or Marshall stack: This is about fulfilling the range of dimensionality to the sound of valves and equalization. The eq's in this collection are tunable, scalable, and capable of reproducing stunning and original analog eq from clean to fuzzy and overdriven. Every setting was prepared side-by-side with music selections to make sure that all stages react precisely the same in Nebula as the hardware.

The sounds in "The Tube Bender EQ Collection" are derived using two dual-triode 12au7 Vintage Mullard Vacuum Tubes serially connected to provide four stages of completely variable control over gain, volume, gain-staging, and bias. This stage is passed on to a vintage '1073-style' eq where the combination of transformers, vacuum tubes, and eq filters are adapted to provide some of the most colorful, character-driven tracking and mixing eq's ever to take place in the digital domain! Several unique stages of boost and cut curves are combined with the natural frequency-shaping characteristics of the tube gain-staging and corresponding harmonics, providing a palette of sounds that should inspire as well as problem-solve.

The collection includes a unique process we call "TubeShapers", which are completely created by the unique four-stage tube process, balancing gain and overdrive to affect the frequency balance of the signal, providing you with all-tube eq's that you won't find anywhere else! Also included are multiple versions of mid-range bell-shape eq's, high and low shelf eq's with multiple cut-off frequencies, adjustable low cut filters combined with original frequency plots, and several unique preamp settings for mixing and matching signal chains.

The Tube Bender EQ Collection is:

Sampled directly from Hardware
Four Stages of Complex Valve Harmonics
Richly Textured, Extremely 3-Dimensional Sounding
Multiple Variations on Wide "Q" Tracking and Mixing EQ
Transformerless Tube Drive and
Valve + Transformer EQ Combinations
TEN Kernels of Perfectly Sampled Harmonics
Virtually Indistinguishable From The Hardware

Hey there!
I have been working on audio samples this evening!

All that I can say is, I cannot tell you how excited I am about how it is coming out!

Something that I've worked hard to achieve with these new eq's is that not only can you dial down the audible distortion for cleaner settings, but also, when adding drive, you do not lose the amount of harmonic distortion being added to the signal when cutting eq. That is to say, you aren't just adding more harmonics when boosting, but also in cutting. Which means, you can cut an offending frequency and dial in thickness or re-tuned tube distortion at the same time. This is because the four stages of tube gain are being set ahead of the eq filter for this effect. Very exciting!

Thanks for sharing the excitement! I am inspired! :)

First Audio Samples Now Available!

While I finish the final editing, I have a few audio samples for you.
I did two quick sample songs to try to show off the range of frequency and harmonic character. You really cannot fully appreciate without using them on your own material, but these are at least a taste of what's coming.

Sample song #1, The Tube-Bender EQ Song (wow, watta name!), uses nothing but TubeBenderEQ's for tracking/mixing. No other compressing/mixing/overdrive/etc. Some reverb and master limiter are the only simple mastering. The guitars are placed on an automated slider to change frequencies live to give a phaser-type effect with the drive turned up.

And this second sample song is a quick House/Dance song I put together, affectionately known as "House". Below is a dry mix and the wet mix is exactly the same with only TubeBenderEQ's applied. No other mixing or mastering.

It's worth listening back through this a few times; listen to the change in distortion and harmonics, not just eq.

I hope you enjoy the listen!

Thanks, Michael, for this samples.
In the second song I can appreciate the change A/Bing the wet and dry, and itīs great!
But in the first one I donīt understand very well how it works, are you maybe changing the controls of the nebula along the song or are you on/off the plugin?
Please explain more about if you can
Thanks a lot!

Hi babiuk!
In the first song, the guitar that sounds as if it has a phaser-type effect is being used to display the sound of the eq as it changes realtime. I set automation to the 'tone' control of a "TubeShaper" EQ program with some drive added. The only eq used on the rest of the tracks are programs from the new collection. The stereo guitars are processed with different settings and different amounts of drive. There isn't a dry comparison mix for song #1 because it wouldn't make sense without all of the processed eq and automated eq from the collection. I hope that makes sense. But, you can hear the more obvious benefits in the wet/dry so thats good! Let me know if that explains. If not, just let me know!
-M.

The EQ's
The EQ's in this collection are broken down into several categories:

COR = Corrective EQ

These are used to place after any eq in the "MD1", "MD2", or "MD3" eq programs if you wish to use them at a flatter frequency response. This is recommended where there is more concern for accuracy over the effect of sound manipulation.

LOW = Low frequency EQ's, including Low Cut and Low Shelf.

Hi = High Shelf Frequency EQ's

MD1, MD2, MD3 = Mid Range Frequency Bell Shape EQ's, created with three different 4-stage valve configurations with different frequency plot and harmonic generation for wide spectrum of results. Used alone for greatest tailoring of sound, special effect and color eq'ing, and most unique eq results. Used with Corresponding Corrective EQ's placed after them for flatter frequency response for more precise eq'ing.

TBS = Tube Shaper EQ's. These are very unique programs created with a tone spectrum knob and drive that allow for an amazing range of eq's created solely by adjustments to 4 stages of valve gain and bias. Use these for unique eq effects, in place of traditional eq'ing, and linked to DAW automation for some of the most amazing overdriven phaser effects you'l ever use!
