Update: Line, Mic, & Master Bus Captured.

Vintage 1960's American console path. Discrete circuitry, with transformer character.

L-401 Console EQ – Nebula Programs

Overview

*Discrete console EQ. Broad musical boost gain, with smooth shelf attenuation. Frequency selection = 50, 100, 1k, 3k, 5k, 10khz – +/- 12dB
*Line input channel.
*Mic input channel.
*Stereo Bus path.
*Transformer coupled signal path.

Sampled Console Information

Each channel-strip consist of a very simple, single ended class A amplifier block for the mic preamp, with equalization in the feedback path. The input and output are both transformer isolated. These are the modules that M****y based their new production M****y/Langevin Dual Mono preamp upon. I’d suggest googling “Langevin AM4” to find some interesting information.

The eq is 2 bands, high and low, each band with 3 selectable frequencies. The boost/cut controls are stepped, and have a peaking response in boost settings and a shelving response in the cuts. This eq’s simplicity and broad bandwidths give it a very smooth, natural sound. What it lacks in options it easily makes up for in sweetness. Very nice sounding eq.

The amplifier has 4 selectable pad positions, 20 dB each, for up to 60 dB of pad prior to the input transformer. As a result this can accept both mic and line levels through the same single input. I’ve included separate “Line” and “Mic” Level captures. These inputs are essentially identical, except that the character/response is different do to the input level settings.

I think that I need to start attending my "meetings" again for NLA, "Nebula Libraries Anonymous". I bought this one as soon as it got released without trying the demo.... again. Eric ALWAYS makes great sounding and unique presets. It DOES sound awesome, so it was a good purchase again. But I think that I better get going to that meeting before some great dev releases another library that I don't have..... :roll:

Is this being sold as two seperate libraries, HF & LF?

If so, what is in each?

This EQ sounds really good.Good pick Eric.The whole console deserve to be sampled!

Would you have an interest in the channel preamp & master bus paths?

Master bus with some stereo magic maybe?
