83 - Px - Production Tools

A collection of useful tools for digital mangling, from delays to shifters…and hum and clipping restoration applications. Includes an Emotion Meter as well!

#8310 Bass Enhance Kit

Two separate processes, use either or both. To bypass a section, turn OUTPUT counterclockwise to ‘Input’. SUB HARM generates 2 extra bass lines, 1 and 2 octaves below orig bass. Use if you’ve got very good speakers that can carry deep bass. SPEAKER COMPENSATE takes the existing bass, which might not pass through a small speaker, and adds a harmonic. This can fool the ear to hearing more bass than a speaker actually carries, without muddying things for people with good speakers. TIP: Turn one section’s OUTPUT to ‘input’ while you tune the other. Stereo I/O.

#8311 Big Woosh

Let the presets give yu an idea of what each slider does, then go wild. Longer wooshes have slight randomness; each time you press can be different. Noting in, stereo out depending on Width control

#8312 Brightener

Brightens up signal by adding even har-monics above the Tuning freq. You can set Rolloff to be -lower- than Tuning freq to get rid of harmonic distortion or noise, then add synthetic harmonics. Stereo in, stereo out, voice, music or sound effects.

#8313 Delay Kit

Two independently-settable delays with feedback and cross-channel feedback. Very nice on voice or sfx (particularly ones that stop, so you can hear tails). Can be tuned to rhythm of music. Caution: if Filter, Feedbk, and Cross are all high, can go into oscillation. Selectable in, stereo out.

#8314 Dialog Cleaner

Universal cleaner for noisy interviews and other location recordings. To use, turn Monitor knob all the way CCW, then step through the circuit, changingMonitor knob to tune each section: 1. Low Cut - adjust Low Cut knob to remove room rumble. 2. Node 1 - Set Node 1 mode to Tune, adj Mode 1 Hz until room resonance jumps out, then set mode to desired amount of cut. 3. Node 2 - adjust as you did Node 1, usually about twice as high a freq. 4. Gates 1 to 4 - adjust thresholds (on Gates page) to pass voice and cut background noise and echo. 5. Set Monitor to Main Out for full processing. Or press Up and Down arrows (on Numeric Pad) to compare input with processing. Mono I/O.

#8315 Dizzy

Simulate the drug experience of your dreams. Does things to polarity, stereospread, diffusion. Try adding some verb,also. Definitely not mono compatible. Selectable in, stereo out.

#8316 Dynamic Flanger

Swirling flanges, but controlled by theinput envelope instead of an osc. Hard to describe but interesting on voice or music. Try turning Stereo Link to Dual Channel on stereo music. Stereo I/O.

#8317 Dynamic Shifter

This is weird. Changes pitch in responseto envelope. Range = very low for subtledetuning of music. = very high to add pitch variation to voice. Stereo I/O.

#8318 Emotion Meter

The meters keep moving, but there’s no- body home. Totally random, but can be driven by input. Keep your clients puz- zled for hours. Output = input.

#8320 Harmonic Mangler

Changes the relationship between funda-mental and harmonics in interesting ways. Can also be used as a pitch shifter, but that’s less fun. Selectable in, stereo out.

#8322 Humdinger

Clobbers hum and dimmer noise better than a notch filter. Uses precise delayto create comb filter, with dozens of harmonically-related notches. Too much Depth may produce an artifact that sounds like room echo, but it sure beats hearing those annoying buzzes. Selectable in, stereo out.

#8323 Split Delays

Input is split into 3 bands. Lows get panned left, mids delayed and centered,highs more delayed and panned right. And then there’s feedback… Calls attention to voice in promos, enhances (destroys?) music. Stereo I/O.

#8324 Swept Resonance

Everything from a subtle sweep (Source:LFO, Range: Low) to extreme (Source: Envelope +, Range: High, Reson: High, Left Out: Notch, Right Out: Band). Experiment! Tips: Input selector can be set to Noise for wooshes. Try Stereo Link: Off (on Output page) for material with wide separation. Selectable in, stereo out.
