Pi and Phi is hard to be described without experiencing it.
Pi and Phi (π & φ) is our landmark product, designed and destined to impress, and deliver.
Innovation and a lifetime of experience, coupled with cutting edge technological expertise, are some of the ingredients that gave birth to this irreplaceable tool. The basic elements that make up π & φ are the actual numbers π and φ, omnipresent throughout our surrounding living environment. Through years of thorough digital signal processing research, the MIA Laboratory is now able to offer you something novel, and most importantly, unique.
We constructed π & φ, with its ground-breaking and unique sound processing capabilities with one aim: to deliver it to the world of sound engineers, sound enthusiasts and sound evangelists looking for the next level of innovation in the field of digital audio technology.
Words prove to be limited when trying to describe sound, in all its glory. The way is to let sound speak for itself.
Beyond its innovative and enhanced capabilities of simultaneous expansion, compression and EQ, π & φ offers a wide range of other functions: It enriches the mix and each of its separate contents with an overall acoustic effect that can only be described as super-enhanced vivacity and brio, with a warm yet powerful ‘sparkle’
The astonishing effect of π & φ can only be appreciated when heard, the closest description one could give verbally being, an overall result of ‘more!’ The outcome emphasizes musicality and amplitude in a psychoacoustic way, along with smoother analysis of harmonics.
It is a “Phase and Time EQ”, a theory based on the logarithmic perception of space-time fused in a plugin!
The Musiqual Series tools encapsulate all the characteristics and inner workings of their analog counterparts, and provide the user with a simple way to achieve the perfect combination of tone and color.
Musiqual BLUE is committed to deliver a digital – yet so analogue – equalisation, with a very vivid flavour one can almost ‘taste’. An exquisite EQ with 16-bands to choose from, forged from the experience gained over countless working hours on Class A analogue equipment. It allows the user to add or subtract basic frequencies without the usual digital restrictions.
Musiqual BLUE boasts sound colouring options that assist the musical analogies of harmonics, while providing precise control over the intensity of these harmonic frequencies. Its coloration capability is one essential feature among many others, giving this digital tool and its user the ‘magical power’ to recreate the much respected and celebrated analogue sound of the pre-digital era.
Musiqual RED possesses a strong Tube flavour, boasting 31 pre-set frequency bands very familiar to Tube enthusiasts, across generations. The way that adds or subtracts colour is however more intense, and is accompanied by a profound change in timbre. Its sound is of the type that the passionate Tube enthusiast lives for.
Musiqual RED is destined to bring up sweet memories of historical and beloved equalizers to the older generation of sound engineers.
Musiqual GREEN Musiqual GREEN is a semi parametric EQ, delivering a fairly transparent sound with the ‘transistor’ flavour that is so characteristic of analogue technology. ‘Colouring’ choice is soft and discrete, handing over complete control of the level of ‘colouring’ to the user. Musiqual GREEN liberates the user by not restricting one into preset bands, therefore leaving them complete access to the full frequency range.
Musiqual GREEN adds or subtracts colour, providing that classical, yet still so interesting, 1990’s sound.
Border is a second order Butterworth Low-Pass, High-Pass filter combination for general use, characterised by smooth response and an analogue character.Remove unwanted frequencies from your signals, with the smooth filtering that Border provides! Super-low CPU consumption!
