TREBLE AND BASS Pre/eq based on a vintage tube amp.
The presets have Treble and Bass controls,the distortion This is a tone shaper! It can be used for mixing ,or it could be used for what it was originally intended for which is a Pre/eq for guitar/instrument before going into a power amp/cab preset.

V2 Features

-4 sample rates
-Jpn n4/n3 skins
-no chirping harmonics!

This is the tube power section of treble and bass.

Features-

-Two distortion presets
-One shape preset
-n3/n4 jpn skins



For v2 we have three presets to choose from. Two distortion presets and one Shape preset (Frequency response of output section)

Distortion Preset’s

The basic distortion preset has three knobs, Distortion, Power supply and Attenuation. 1.Distortion use this knob to increase input to get the desired amount of overdive 2.Power Supply this knob changes the character or the feel of the amp. This will be more noticeable on guitar3.Attenuation Use this knob to adjust the volume of the preset after you have found your distorted sweet spot.

The Mix distortion Preset has a added Mix control (wet/dry) This preset works slightly different from the basic one in that it is gain compensated. As you drive the preset harder you may notice the volume decreasing. So we have a volume instead of attenuate for this preset.

Shape preset

The shape preset is used before or after the distortion preset, this will affect the tightness of the overdrive if placed before and will give a heavy mid sound if placed after

Important-
When using in stereo/bus applications, you should use a instance either side. use a program like meta plugin.

As usual if you bought for before, this is a completely free upgrade.

Tip for guitar or bass-

Don't forget to add a speaker IR at the end of the chain!

the chain goes something like this
>Treble and bass Eq>powershape(optional)>Power distort>Speaker ir

Wow, thank you Tim and JPN! Can't wait to try this.

So, at first you say the "shape preset is used after the distortion preset" but then you go on to say the chain should be "powershape(optional)>Power distort" ...so is it best to place the shape before or after distortion?

Thanks, Tim and JPn!!

I love that lib, it sounds amazing, very real. I got it years ago and it has been very useful. Also I have been using exactly that amp and it has that vibe, yes!

Anyway, about speaker responses, which ones you recommend?

Yeah my bad. I've corrected it. I’d say before or after depending how you want the sound.. It acts a little like a emphasis filter. The sound is tight
putting the power shape before distortion,

However use it as you wish and experiment.

I know there are a few around for nebula, for the era of amp and you want to be authentic, you want to be looking for celestion, fane, goodmans speaker impulses. Although I have not seen any goodmans or fanes, possibly someone has made some. I'm sure there are plenty of celestion speakers, I particular I would say g12 and g12m are in the right ballpark

Hi Tim!

Thanks for the free update to Treble and bass eq, the skin looks great!

Just double check, do we use only one instance of Treble and Bass? Or do we use the Pre and then an Amp?

Also, is there only one version with a skin: "SCS Treble and Bass Pre"? The other programs in the (MN) & (ST) folders don't seem to have the new skin. Is that because they are from the previous version? If so do i need them anymore?

Thanks again!

Yes that’s right.

Everything you need is there. I wanted to keep it simple. The pre and eq is in one.
If you want overdrive you need the power expansion pack.

Cool! Thank you!

And what about the programs in the MN & ST folders? Are they redundant now?

Well you if you like then you can keep them but for example the harmonics are
Far better now in how they were deconvolved. Everything is cleaner and refined.
