Coral EQ is based on the Bandaxdal design, with an ingenious expansion of available mid frequency selection, along with special HP/LP Filters.

Very different from the Scarlett design both in function and sound.

Whats the meaning of "Bandaxdal"? I have searched but i haven't found nothing...

Could you give me some examples of similar eq´s in HW like this one?

Thanks in advance

He spelled it wrong. Try looking up Baxandall Filter.

Nice.

I sure do wish we could mod the skins. I'd show that thing off to everyone who came into my studio, even if I weren't doing anything with it.

Then they'd be like, "what does that sound like?"
And I'd be like, "listen..."


I could be in my own spy film called "The Man with the Golden GUI".

Didn't realize it was a baxandall eq design. With this it will be a very nice compliment to the scarlet.

The only comment I have is +/- 12 db of gain range within the EQ is too much for mastering. Is there any way to reduce that as in mastering I find we use 0.5 to 2 db EQ most of the time and anything more than that is pretty rare?

Why would you replace Scarlet with Coral eq? Im interest as im also Scarlet owner.

Any info anyone about wich eq is based/inspired this Coral eq?

Yes there is almost no competition in this area
I was quite surprised (i've found something from mcdsp, and several very sparse plugins with limited frequencies)
Go figure a fir design.

I do have UAD BAX-EQ by brainworx but hardly ever used it… never really had satisfying results, perhaps because of the pre-defined crossings or too much going on in the phase, do-no.

In the time before FF-ProQ2 and TDR Slick, I occasionally had fun with the Elysia Niveau Filter – a nice little (free) tool, more of a tilt eq with wide shelvings and cirtainly not a bax with curves that integrates on broad part of the spectrum.

None of the above mentioned have Baxandall mid-range filter curves, and I actually never heard of this before(!)

Looking very much forward to hear and read more about this specific approach in Coral :-)

The 'Inspired' version is spelled Bandaxdal. :P

Main issue with many bax tools is because they are limited - just few frequencies in most of cases

Just after sand release! They are ready almost at the same time, featuring a very new and powerful acqua engine. It is really really advanced now!


Btw today we'll sample your beloved amethyst, titanium, and if we have time also pink strip.
