The Musiqual tools encapsulate all the characteristics and inner workings of their analog counterparts, providing the user with a simple way to achieve the perfect combination of tone and colour.
Each unit consists of a Single Band EQ -with carefully selected and tuned frequency bands-, a Harmonic Distortion component and a Compressor, recreating the sound of the much appraised analog gear.
Red for Tube, Green for Transistor and Blue for Class A; all together creating a unique and powerful set of tools to add a warm, analog flavour to your sound, with precise control over the amount of coloration, harmonic distortion and compression applied.
Musiqual Blue delivers a vivid Class A flavour, reminiscent of the warm, fat and smooth sound of classic audio gear.
Musiqual Blue’s EQ offers 16 carefully selected bands to choose from, representing the “key” frequencies when it comes to Class A gear. Each band comes with a designated “Colour” algorithm, enhancing this unit’s character and allowing for more musical and Class A-flavoured equalisation.
Similarly to the fast Class A pre-amps, Musiqual Blue also tends to bring sounds forward, in terms of perceived depth of field.
The Harmonic Distortion component in Musiqual Blue recreates the asymmetrical clipping, typically found in Class A circuits. It provides the characteristic sound of an overdriven Class A circuit, allowing the user to conveniently control the amount of distortion introduced to the signal.
The Compressor present in Musiqual Blue is specifically tuned to complement the Class A character of this unit. It has fixed attack and release settings and allows for easy control of the amount of compression applied to the sound.
