Recently released, Henry has made available the 'Klaritizer - AIR' library for NEBULA. [a unique, parallel shelving EQ].
Quoting from various reviews [still maintain 'cloaking']
With the basic working premise outlined above, there are questions raised implementing this 'process' using the 'AIR' library that I would like to discuss and/or 'Klarify'[this] Parallel EQ falls into the general category of broad, tone‑shaping analogue EQ, it is unlike any other EQ that I know of. It has no bells or filters, just boost‑only high shelves, and it has a parallel signal‑path topology, about which I’ll say more in a moment. It’s not the only parallel EQ on the market, and it’s not the only one that predominantly uses shelves for sonic enhancement... but as far as I know it’s the only one that does both, and whose shelves have quite the shape and high reach that they do.
Let's also stay mindfull, in this discussion, to maintain discression to the actual hardware named.
I hope that with Henry's busy scheduale, that he'd be able to provide extended details to the sampling concept and how to impliment this particular library as designed.
Here's the original working concept:
The only graphic signal flow diagram I have would violate are 'discreet' rule ... so for the moment, I have no diagram to post. If OK, I can post a link that reviews said unit from the 'SOS' site.Signals coming into the [Klaritizer] are split into mindfuldiscretionscheduleimplementsix paths to allow for the parallel processing that lies at the heart of this design. Two, which form the FF path, go direct to a summing bus, and remain untouched. The other four go to the Focus and Klarity ‘engines’, where they’re processed before being sent to the same output bus as the FF signal.
If that sounds confusing, the signal flow diagram overleaf should make this much clearer! In short, the design means that at the output the summed stereo signal is made up of one element which is entirely unprocessed, one that has passed only through the Focus engine, and another that has passed only through the Klarity engine.
If I understand [correctly], the 'AIR' library presets are straight out of the summed output from the unit. If this is, indeed, true ... then, inserting more than one preset [which would be most likely with this unit] will NOT duplicate the unique parallel processing this unit exhibits.
Again ... for a single instance, we would not have issue ... however, the second instance would be processing the preceding effected audio in full. This is not how the true signal flow is designed.
Each preset would need to work off of the 'original', unaffected signal, and THEN be combined.
Again ... If this is what we have, there are routing options that would need to be considered to recreate the intended signal path.
I look to DAW's, such as REAPER, that provide flexible routing architecture. There are also various VST 'patch bay' plugs, like 'MetaPlugin', or Plogue Biddle, that can also allow custom routing.
Anyway ... just wanted to get this out there for discussion and analysis, making sure that we understand how to use this library properly.
Thanks for reading ... look forward to discussion!
