Analog Code component modeling, passive circuitry replication, compatible with all major DAWs
The concept of the SPL EQ Ranger plug-ins is characterized by two decisive features that separate them from traditional designs: They are graphic EQs – and they are the first application or instrument specific EQ modules at all.
The EQ Ranger plug-ins are based upon the EQ modules for the SPL RackPack series. They combine the amazing sound of passive fliters with extremely efficient operation.
This EQ package provides Bass Ranger, Vox Ranger and Full Ranger. While Bass Ranger and Vox Ranger are specialized to process their specific frequency ranges, the Full Ranger complements the specialists with a set of filter bands that covers the whole frequency range.
An extremely easy to use, powerful set of wonderful sounding EQs.
All native versions of the Analog Code plug-ins support RTAS, VST and AU formats. The license for a TDM version also includes all native formats. Therefore native versions can be installed additionally to TDM versions without the need for further licenses.
Musically it is only consistent to specifically design modules for typical instrument or vocal ranges. In contrast to static graphical EQs with always the same center frequencies in repeating octave distances, the Ranger EQ modules are much better suited to work with specific instruments and their peculiarities—and only different frequency ranges do allow to effectively separate instruments in a mix.
Why did we choose a graphic EQ design? For a fully parametric EQ with all necessary controls there would have been space for approximately one band on the module front. However, our graphic EQ offers eight bands—offering flexible access to a large scale of frequency control without the need for additional bandwidth controls etc. which would make access less direct again. And aside from the musical advantages the application specific EQ module also facilitates operation considerably. Based upon its exceptional sound quality, the Ranger EQ package represents a capacious filter set with a unique balance between versatility and efficiency.
The "Settings" feature allows to store four different sets of adjustments. Much faster than with the usual save and recall presets dialogs, the settings can be stored and recalled by just one click. The Settings A, B, C, D can be included into the automation of host applications to apply different sets of parameters to different parts of a song.
Mouse Wheel Control
All SPL Analog Code plug-ins support mouse wheel control for rotary controls and faders. Place the mouse cursor over a rotary control or fader and move the wheel or scroll ball of your mouse to adjust the control or fader. Hold the CTRL (Windows) or APPLE/COMMAND key while moving the wheel or scroll ball for fine adjustments with higher control resolution.
The Analog Code
While SPL hardware products have been fascinating audio professionals from home studio owners to mastering engineers in the world's most renowned facilities for years, the need for this technology in the form of plug-ins has also been an ever-growing demand. With the Analog Code plug-ins we have finally accomplished our much desired goal: to transfer to the digital domain the high quality we have striven to achieve with our analog processors throughout several decades.
