I like on G-Sonique, that they always do things a little different than others or present products, which have their own individual character or are a little off-maistream.
I found that Psychedelic Tunnel T1 finally is a fresh, creative, different approach to the reverb theme, which enables a wide range of more spacious, ambient, unusual sounding reverbs with a very interesting character.
Usually I'm mainly - if any - using some tape echo and / or spring reverb, but this one I only tested shortly and liked it. You can get some nice, pulsating reverbs due to 3 combined sets of LFO modulation, but what I like most on it is the dark energy control, some kind of detuned octaver, which gives a very special, great sound to the reverb.
Not only usable for Psytrance, Dub, ...
Just for fun I even tested it with the lead channel of high gain guitar amp sims, and although you usually don't use reverbs and high gain, as this doesn't sound very well, the T1 also in this combination sounds very interesting and nice, the guitar tone changes to some kind of doomy sounding organ/synthesizer-like tones, which sound and work great and unusual also in a heavier or even metal context.
Another nice and a little weird combination is using the T1 in combination with some phaser, Leslie or Univibe, or with one of my all-time favorite pedals, the Electric Kingdom (also from G-Sonique). Or eg. try it with a B3, Rhodes, Bass or some percussion to make them sound different, new and interesting.
A very good special reverb for people who are looking for some fresh, new sounds.
Picked this up the other day. Transaction was good and painless. The sounds are mostly pretty good. Very Techno and that is what I wanted. I had a lot of fun going through the sounds, many will be used in tracks to come. It even inspired me to start a new idea, So, can't be bad. On the downside, even though there are 1000s of sounds, I did find a lot of the kits very similar. However, for the money, it was a bargain. I can recommend this if you are a Techno head.
Modern neurofunker drum and Bass like noisia, black sun Empire, eatbrain, methlab or RAM records style is usually made from Sample, samples of drums as Well as samples od Bass, these samples are additionally effected, cutted, etc. But to find perfect sounding drum and Bass samples is totally difficult, to make your own presets in serum is difficult much more, few hours just with one sound and it still doesnt sound like your want, sound is odften harsh, plastic and digital while your want that analog soundt..so your need to use tons of additionally effected distortions analog simulations to get that modern sound, and your are making sounds and experimentig instead of making music. This plugin Help your to produce profesional sounding drum and Bass right now. Perfect modulated basses, reeses, subs, hits .. everything. Perfect if your wanted to produce modern drum and Bass with Actual sound very fast, 5/5.
Beautyfulll Psychedelicccccc and futuristicc sounds, works perfect in apple Mac OS X logic. Saves lot of time, im using it in intros and buildups, lot of fun and creativity. Can be used in almost all electtonic dance styles i think.
Very underrated plugin. This is such a lush and musical tape delay that has a character of its own. Its lushness is comparable to Valhalla's Vintage Verb, and it doesn't sound bad on any type of track. The presets are pretty extreme and don't really show you how you'd be able to use this as a go-to plugin, so I recommend dialing in your own settings, .
Sound-wise, I see it working for practically any genre. It's clean enough to fit comfortably into modern electronic-sounding productions, yet has enough character to fit in real well with those going for more analog sounding vibes, like myself.
I think the only reason this plugin isn't more popular is because it's for Windows only. But if you a run your DAW on Windows, I highly recommend this plugin, especially for its low price.
I have experiences with many classic brickwall limiters. They are ok, for mastering etc. But you should use limiter also for every mix channel to ensure no one channel will be in clip.
But... Digital brickwall limiters harden sound, make it more shart, distorted, ugly...
Finally somebody (my beloved G-Sonique :-) made emulation of analog limiter as VST. Zener diodes are analog electronic components that can work also as limiters, in special analog circuits they are used for transparent analog limiting.
G-Sonique Zener limiter is absolutely perfect for naturall, analog limiting of every channel during mix. It do not produce any distortion, harshness, hardness... try demo and compare it with classic digital brickwall limiter you will be wonder-struck. It can be used also as mastering compressor because while it has analog sound it has also brickwall function (do not allow peaks to clip over 0db but it dont have typicall brickwall sound) but it is better for mastering of live music, for mix it is perfect for all genres.
If you want to make your mixes modern, loud and analog (according to current music trends) witouth using harsh/distorted digital brickwall limiter, try this one zener analog tool, it is something totally different with different sound :-D.
If you are producing Drum and Bass, Neurofunk or Dubstep DUBSHOX H8 is a MUST! There are many multiband distortions but ones have terrible sound, others are absolutelly difficult to control.
If you are producing other music styles like electro house, psytrance, electro, ebm, industrial Dubshox will be perfect helper for you too.
Firstly I though, just next classic distortion, but... It is really byg helper in my production.
I was always angry that my NI Massive basses and dubstep sounds has still ugly raw sound while my favourite producers had juicy, fat, massive analog sound, i was wandering how they made it using massive. Answer is additional procesing.
Dubshox split sound into 3 bands, you can very elegantly set frequency ranges and control volume level of each band, if bass is not fat enought just move slider up to add heavy bass low end. If there is lot of harshness move MID slider down.
Additionally you can control drive (amount of distortion) of every band, so if you want to have loud bass but with minimum distortion it is possible.
You can set overall input distortion level and individual distortion levels of all bands. This is very perfect and easy for controlling of sound.
Every band has different types of distortions, probably designed for bass, mid and treble because every one band has different types of distortions which you can choose. I think there is more than 50!! types of distortions, from fat gentle analog distortions to digital madness, also specialities like Fukushima, Chernobyl or Reactor distortions which really sound dark and scarry like radio signal from missing radio transmitter lost in fukushima reactor. Crazy but sounding perfect.
Some distortion algorithms add distortion and crazy sharp harshness and others vice versa clean sound!! If original NI Massive bass or synth is too sharp and digital with some distortion algorithms from dubshox h8 you can clean it, made it more creamy, fatty, analog sounding and mid-treble harshness will be removed! Try it. Some distortions add romantic vintage dust to signal.
Additionally if your synth/bass is missing fattnes ans space there is SPATIAL PROCESSING called 3D sound - you can add some 3D sound/space to Mid and Treble frequencies while bass frequencies remain mono which is ideal ehen playing at big party.
Last perfect thing is neurofunk unit - you can add sci-fi vibrato/detuning to your basses known from dark styles like neurofunk dnb, ebm, electro.. it also make your bass more smooth an analog sounding.
Overall rating: Dubshox H8 is best dubstep and drum and bass multiband distortion available at the market. Work with it is fastest and I alwey get perfect results within few seconds. But do not use presets, learn to work with it and set your own parameters - results will be fantastic, you can very fast create your own preset which works best to concrete bass.
