The digitalization of analog technology has been a recurring and controversial topic for years. We at SPL refrained from the discussion quite some time, until we we came up with our own answer in the form of the Analog Code series.
We are convinced that our Passeq plug-in faithfully translates into the digital domain the sound and response of passive EQs. It shouldn’t come as a surprise considering that is has the most complex algorithms our in-house developers have ever conceived to date.
Just like its analog counterpart, the Passeq plug-in provides the most dense network of passive filters ever in one single unit: each channel has 72 filters on three bands. As if that weren’t enough, the programming takes into account all interactions between filters and, at the same time, emulates the sound of the input and output transformers. The plug-in includes two display options: the standard two-channel interface and a space-saving single-channel version. One of the plug-in’s highlights is the switchable M/S mode that allows independent processing of mid and side signals.
The Passeq Analog Code plug-in is already available at an MSRP of 149 euros (199.66 USD) excl. VAT.
