Softube has announced the relaunch of the Brilliance Pack, a faithful plug-in model of three passive treble equalizers custom built and used in the classic EMI Abbey Road studios in the golden 1960's era. The 64-bit upgrade includes support for Pro Tools 11 (AAX) and is free to current Brilliance Pack owners. There is a special introductory offer for new customers.

Softube, the original developer of the Brilliance Pack for Abbey Road Studios, is incorporating Brilliance Pack into its own roster of products from November 27 onwards. Softube will take over support, development and future sales of the plug-in.

The Brilliance Pack is available for AAX, VST2, VST3 and AU formats, 32- and 64-bit where applicable. RTAS version to follow.

The Brilliance Pack will be permanently price reduced to $219, but from today and until January 9, 2014, the plug-in will be offered at an even lower introductory price: $164.

Current Brilliance Pack license holders can register for the free upgrade at: www.softube.com/abbeyroad_upgrade

A 20 day trial license is available to all at www.softube.com/brilliancepack (requires iLok)

Abbey Road Studios Brilliance Pack is a highly specialized tool for mix engineers of all genres. The three included equalizers focus entirely on the presence/treble frequencies, breathing air into single tracks or entire mixes.

1. RS127 Rack (grey faceplate)

The grey RS127 Rack is the original Abbey Road Studios treble equalizer. It offers a boost or cut of up to 10 dB at 2.1, 3.5 and 10 kHz (or kilocycles per second as they used to be known).

2. RS127 Box (green faceplate)

When more units were needed in the studio, the portable green RS127 Box was built. The same circuit was used as in the original RS127, but with the addition of an audio transformer. The engineers quickly discovered that the transformer dramatically altered the sound character and the operating frequencies of the RS127. The frequencies got shifted a bit higher, which is of course also holds true for the plug-in model.

3. RS135

Lastly, the RS135 was created to fill in the frequency gap that the RS127 units left out. It's fixed at 8 kHz, offers boost only and is just as sweet and silky as its siblings.

In short:

  • Adds beautiful sounding treble and presence without harshness.
  • Three different passive treble equalizers, modeled from Abbey Road Studios' originals.
  • The original grey RS127, the green RS127 with added transformer and the 8 kHz only RS135.
  • Very low CPU usage.
