MH Character

A bucket full of old school goodness.....


 

Character is a plug-in that lets you add the luscious distortion characteristics of classic analog circuits to your source tracks. To create Character we asked top flight tracking, mixing and mastering engineers to send us their favorite analog hardware; the mic pres, DIs and EQs that they used for recording, mixing and mastering. We then used SpectraFoo to measure the ways that these processors add lovely, gooey analog distortion to the sound run through them and modeled this distortion using our proprietary +DSP technology.

Character provides over 20 different models, incorporating the sound of tubes, transformers and solid state devices. Character has a Drive control (and autodrive) to allow you to push the distortion even harder for over-the-top sound mangling.

As Ed Abbott of Universal Mastering says, “Character is so cool, because it has all of the good stuff and none of the bad. Who ever heard of noiseless, phase coherent non-linear distortion? To the best of my knowledge it's never been done!” And Rob Caggiano (Guitarist for Anthrax, producer and engineer) adds, “I tended to use the ‘Classic British’ character setting on the ULN-8’s mic pres, quite a bit. It just sounds awesome! It gave the guitars and vocals exactly the tone I was looking for, and it even delivered an aggressive sound for a conga percussion riff!”

“It’s like having this cool little analog desk – it’s digital, but you can put Character on it.” - Charlie Pilzer, Grammy Award Winning Mastering Engineer and Musician.
