Tone Empire Black Q

Black Q is a 4 band Tube Eq with 2 modes of saturation. These are modeled from analog equipment featuring Sowter and Lundahl transformers and various tubes.

At Tone Empire we are obsessed with "sound". We recently brought a vintage unit to life by building the hardware version over 6 months, changing tubes, transformers and signal paths.

In this quest we built a "Golden Unit" with "Super Powers". We had the idea then to model this circuit with 2 paths involving sowter and lundahl transformers and some choices of vintage valves.

The result was simply stunning. Then combining this with a versatile EQ design, we developed a monster Tube Eq in the DSP world, a kind of hybrid with a sound going from "clean and silky" to full on "crunchy" sounding saturations.

The TYPE A gives you a great "FULL" sound including a "Big" Low end and TYPE B gives you a crunchier mid/high enhanced sound. These choices make it possible to use this eq on a variety of sound materials from Drums to vocals, piano, string instruments, bass, synths and as a mastering unit itself.

The next part was to make this plugin as processor efficient as possible so it could be used as a tracking plugin with very low latency and also allow one to run multiple instances of it effortlessly.

I think we have accomplished both things.
We are now very keen to see our customers reactions to BLACK Q !
