Buzz Audio TONIC

Buzz Audio Tonic is a simple but effective 3 band equalizer for the 500 Series system, the Tonic utilizes real inductors (chokes) in the high and low bands. These two bands are switchable shelf or bell modes and have 2 turn over frequency choices. The sweepable mid band features the Constant Amplitude Phase Shift circuit proposed my Mr Steve Dove in 1981 which has a very fluid sound. A high pass filter is also provided with two frequency choices (50Hz or 80Hz) selected by the user with jumpers on the PCB.

Description

As with the other 500 Series modules on this range, the signal path is True Class A with a Lundahl output transformer. The Tonic has a big grunty sound with stacks of headroom making it an excellent tracking equalizer and a perfect partner to our Elixir mic preamp. Add an Essence compressor and you have a complete Buzz Audio channel strip!

Controls
The low band and high band have center detent pots for +/-15dB of boost/cut range. Toggle switches select bell or shelf mode on these bands. The low band turnover frequency can be selected to 60Hz or 120Hz and the high band 5kHz or 11kHz. The mid band frequency range of 75Hz to 11.5kHz is selected with a x1/x10 range switch. A switch for wide or narrow bandwidth (Q) selection and a center detent pot sets the mid +/-15db boost/cut range. Additional toggles for Bypassing the module and engaging the High Pass Filter and a Peak level LED complete the picture.

Rack compatibility
The Tonic module will physically fit into all 500 Series racks, but it should be noted the current draw is 120mA, which is higher than most other 500 Series modules. This should not be an issue with most modern racks, but with older 500 Series racks it may mean only one or two Tonics should be fitted along with other modules. If in doubt please feel free to contact us, we are happy to help.

MOTHER WAI 2950 (wire and iron) is a 3-Band, completely discrete class A inductor based ,500 series eq. In a way, we recreated the legendary W295, an EQ famous for its magically beautiful “high shelf” and real vintage vibe, the secret weapon of many producers over the past decades. Input and output are balanced by Mother's custom high class transformers. A special challenge was the output transformer, which with the integrated LPF at 20khz is a really critical element to not lose the well-known sonic character and the choice ultimately fell on the 50% Nickel core. Also, the impedance of the input transformer, (which in the geniune unit was relatively low) was incrased to today's standards and all this resulted in an extended low freq response and a slightly “excited” sound, if we compare it with the Siemens module. The PCB board is full of NOS BSX46 Phillips transistors, and as much as possible Siemens NOS film capacitors. All controls are stepped.

How it sounds?
Completely magical, huge, but still focused low end and incredibly sweet highs, creamy
mid range, very characteristic for an inductor based circuit.

Where can it be used?
Anywhere where you actually want character and sweetness.

Purple Audio TAV is a ten-band inductor-based graphic EQ. Designed to work in standard “500″ racks designed by Ed Anderson for Purple Audio.

An illuminated pushbutton for relay true bypass (green) allows for easy comparison with unprocessed source material. A Tricolor LED meters the signal. The frequency response is +/- 0.25dB from 15Hz to 25kHz, and -3dB at 60kHz.A new take on the console graphic, with ten easy to use bands. Each band uses a high quality inductor and carefully selected caps to set the center frequency. At full boost and full cut the bands are narrow enough to still be useful individually, but at lower settings the bands widen out for more gentle shaping. Even at full boost and cut, the filters are shaped to be musical and useful.

With specialized input and output transformers, the TAV has plenty of headroom, even at full boost. The entire circuit is discrete, with no electrolytic capacitors in the signal path, and no servo amps. With only two active stages, the current draw is low enough to work in any rack, and leave plenty of juice for other modules. The Tav uses one KDJ3 op-amp and one KDJ4 op-amp.

Buzz Audio ZODIAK - Dual channel tilt and filter equalizer
Equalize a different way with the Zodiak's four complimentary tone control sections creating a powerful new sound shaping tool.

The "Tilt-n-Filter" EQ idea was delivered to us by Zak Cohen, owner of the Woodshop Recording Studio, and it is based on a series of plug-ins Zak would routinely set up to equalize music tracks recorded direct into his DAW. The Zodiak reproduces this concept with the same series of eq elements - but in the analogue domain so it can used ahead of the DAW input. The main element of the design is the Baxandall style Tilt eq circuit (originally found on the Quad 44 hifi preamplifer from the 1970's). The concept of a tilt EQ is not new, but with the addition of a fully parametric midrange band and high and low cut filters, the Zodiak caters for a wide range of applications that would otherwise require multiple processors. What's more - the Zodiak is available with three signal path options to suit your taste and budget.

ACME Audio Motown EQ - 7-band graphic equalizer
In the continuing effort to faithfully recreate classic Motown audio products for today’s recording studios, Acme Audio is proud to announce the highly anticipated release of the Motown EQ. An absolute legend among audio engineers and producers, only 48 of the original Motown EQs were ever produced and it’s considered one of Chief Engineer Mike McLean's pinnacle achievements at Motown Studios. With its transformer balance audio path and gain makeup amplifier section, this 7-band graphic equalizer was a vast improvement to the products that were commercially available in the Motown era.   Acme Audio had the honor of spending several weeks with the late Mike McLean reverse engineering an original Motown EQ and had his ongoing guidance to faithfully recreate and reintroduce this classic piece of equipment to the recording world.   

No components were compromised in this reproduction… every inductor, capacitor, and transformer was either sourced from original manufacturers or painstakingly recreated to match the performance and sonic quality of the original Motown EQ.  In essence, this is the closest you will ever come to owning this essential piece of recording history.

The Buzz Audio DBC-20 is a new take on a vintage technique utilizing a gain reduction element of silicon diodes in a balanced bridge arrangement. The diode bridge is coupled via a "radio steel" laminated transformer of our own design. This element produces a desirable compression character that can best be described as tight, colourful and rich with harmonics. In the style of compressors from the 60's, the DBC-20 incorporates a self-adjusting ratio whereby the compression ratio is progressively increased with deepening gain reduction. This feature allows for the control of very dynamic signals (such as vocals) in a seamless fashion. The DBC does sound very vintage but does not carry the vintage price tag!

The DBC-20 is available with a grey (silver) or black face plate.

Buzz Audio REQ-2.2 resonance mastering equalizer is a high-end stereo, four band inductor based, parametric mastering and recording equalizer, that operates and sounds like no other.

The resonance factor
The REQ-2.2 equalizer utilises parallel resonant circuits in a clever configuration whereby the bandwidth (Q) of the circuit can be adjusted like an active filter, but without any complex relay switching. The inductor/capacitor resonant "tank" eq circuit runs at a low internal signal level which avoids any inductor saturation effects. The overall result is the sound of real choke based filters with a big open sound, but without the limitation of only a few - or no bandwidth selections as found on traditional choke eq's.

What you have here is a mic/line preamp, parametric equalizer and compressor/limiter that can be used in conjuction as a recording channel or, accessed as completely separate elements. The ARC is not just one piece of kit but multiple pieces bundled into one chassis with a clever relay routing system so you can assign each element to the main signal path or to externally accessed I/O.
