denise audio has announced the release of God Mode, a plugin that introduces a new push-pull technology giving you full control over what frequencies to saturate and distort. Its node EQ graph and linear phase filters allow for unlimited options to shape the coloration of your sound.
The push-pull technology is inspired by the analog Pultec EQ, a passive tube eq from the 50s, widely used in the 70s/80s for both broadcasting and mixing. The Pultec EQ would 'push' the gain for a certain frequency range into its tube circuit, and would then 'pull' it back again, to smooth out the frequency response. This creates a sound close to the original but with a warmth added to the boosted frequency ranges. God Mode introduces a modern version of this technique.
The first step to using God Mode is to boost or 'push' certain frequencies in your track that you like to be more saturated or distorted. You can, for example, use one shelf to boost the highs and one peak to boost a certain color or resonance. Because you can push these frequencies harder into the saturation algorithm, they will be naturally more affected by it. The second step is to decide if and how much 'pull' to apply to the boosted frequencies. This gives you creative control over the amount of coloration and the option to create a well balanced frequency response for your track.
