Modular EQ modules are nothing new, but with the Ranger EQ modules we followed an entirely musical approach: center frequencies, amplitudes and bandwidths are not chosen from a technical view, but optimized for certain instruments.
The Full Ranger module is the necessary exception in this concept: with ISO frequencies to process the whole frequency range, the Full Ranger can be used as as a versatile addition to the specialized versions.
Musical optimization makes sense soundwise and allows to configure highly specialized EQ systems without having to decide for a final status – there is always the option to upgrade an existing package with another EQ module.

The TwinTube (click image for enlarged view) module is a tube effects processor to apply typical tube sound effects to any signal. Tube saturation can be regulated to add subtle to heavy tube distortions for more punch and rougher sounds. The Harmonics control enhances the presence of a signal and allows for example to move signals up front in a mix. In general, the top end can be sweetened with the nice touch of tube harmonics. Both effects can be used separately or simultaneously. Main studio and live applications are in single track processing.
Back in the 1990's, we developed an alternative way to process signals in order to reduce sibilance based on phase cancellation. Unlike traditional compression methods, this procedure is much more unobtrusive and simplifies control to one single parameter. SPL‘s De-Esser quickly became a standard reference among recording studios, broadcast stations and live sound engineers.
The Dual-Band De-Esser module expands on this concept by making use of two frequency bands that can be used independently or jointly.
- Two de-esser stages increase processing effectiveness without introducing any audible artifacts
- Focused processing with high and low bands
- Input signals are automatically adjusted so that processing is uniform, regardless of the distance between source and microphone
- Male/Female modes that adapt processing in the lower band to male or female voices
