SCARLET4 is a VST/AAX/AU plug-in suite specifically tailored for mastering engineers. It brings you the sound of two celebrated, specialized mastering devices designed in the '70s by two legendary pioneers, considered the most ingenious minds in the field of music recording technology. These two specialists joined forces to create the first parametric equalizers to ever appear on the audio market. Given how rare these models are, there is no sum of money large enough to persuade their lucky owners to part with their beloved unit.
The transparency of their sonic trademark and the quality of their electronic and mechanic components wholly justify the reputation these tools earned over the years: military-grade rotary switches, precision resistors, proprietary discrete op-amps, without any capacitor on the signal path.

DETAILS

Scarlet4 represents the natural evolution of our acclaimed Scarlet plug-in. To further meet the needs of demanding mastering engineers, we included two different EQ models: SCARLET4 EQ and SCARLET4 CLASSIC EQ, thus ensuring greater flexibility and the highest level of sonic excellence.

NEW EQ MODULES.

CORE 14 AI

Core14 AI introduces our breakthrough AI Deep learning (IRIS™) technology. Learn about all the new implementations HERE.

UNION IS STRENGTH

We have teamed up with several professional engineers from all over the world to feed SCARLET4's AI with some good knowledge. The resulting presets will be available in the next few weeks.

**UPDATE**

Scarlet4 release I available in Aquarius.
AI presets added

Details:

Preset Management

The SCARLET4 includes AI (Artificial Intelligence) Presets.
By clicking the “PRESET” drop down menu on the left hand side of SAND3EQ you can select a preset from
the displayed list. You can choose between several presets.
You may find a detailed list of the presets in the
following Chapter “AI PRESET LIST & CREDITS”.
A normal preset would simply load the same settings each time you use it. Our AI Presets are based on a huge
amount of data sampled from real-life mixing sessions by renowned engineers. Any AI Preset will assess the
audio being fed into the plug-in and then, based on the data stored in its memory, it will automatically modify
the EQ settings, emulating what the referenced engineer would have done in the same situation.

Here’s the procedure to obtain the best results:
- loop a short section of audio that you deem is most significant
for the AI evaluation. The analyzed time frame
is quite short (only a couple of seconds) so different points in the audio will obviously produce different results;
- click the preset you would like to use;
- sit back and watch as the eq settings change.

This brand new technology works very well on individual tracks and groups, whereas results on the master
bus may vary.

02. AI FRANCESCO DONADEL CAMPBELL

Preset Sampling Technique (used in the AI capture phase)
-EQ for Master Bus purposes (various TV series, commercials and promos)

Francesco Donadel Campbell was born in Padua, Italy, on 17 July 1972. In his early teens he developed a clear interest in music and began playing the guitar and the electric bass. In later years his passion for the world of music and its more modern genres pushed his own interests towards high fidelity, digital audio and video. In particular, computer-related music, CD-R burning and the digitization of his extensive VHS cassettes archive. Not being allowed to listen to music at high volumes until late at night, he started to share his love of the world of hi-fi and especially professional headphones using various brands and models over the years.

Francesco’s love of Japanese cartoons led him in 2002 to assume the role of quality control supervisor and DVD project technical coordinator at Shin Vision, a company specialized in the commercialization of products related to Japanese animation.

From 2005 to 2013 he covered the role of coordinator and quality control supervisor at SoundnVision, a company based in Milan well placed in the field of video post-production. His love for precision and his natural understanding of issues related to the quality of the video masters for broadcasting and for marketing on DVD led him to become head of the department of digitization and digital video restoration using the Archangel Real-time HD & SD Video Restoration software by Snell & Wilcox. He has also been an audio mastering engineer since 2004. From 2014 to the present day he is the senior audio and video mastering engineer for Yamato Video Srl, the most important company in Italy that publishes and sells Japanese animation on Dvd and Blu-Ray.
