Prime Studio Funkenschlag
Tube Channel Strip Plugin
Prime Studio Funkenschlag brings the unmistakable tube sound of the 50s, based on a handcrafted German mixing console.
Funkenschlag is a mono/stereo channel strip plug-in with three combinable tools that color the sound of your tracks.
The first part is a preamp based on a German tube preamp from the 1950s. It is used for harmonic tube distortion and offers two filters for selected high and low frequencies. The preamp section has an auto-trimmed output, so you do not add unwanted gain to your signal, just harmonic distortion to keep the compression from increasing.
The second part is a compressor and limiter based on a 1960s analog vintage device. With classic controls such as "Eingangspegel" (Input Level), "Begrenzung" (Ratio), "Arbeitspunkt" (Threshold), and "Rückstellzeit" (Recovery time), you have a tonal range from subtle compression to heavy limiting of the signal.
The third section offers a graphic equalizer with selected frequencies for flexible sound design. The signal flow can be changed by switching the equalizer before or after the compressor/limiter. Each section of the channel strip can be turned on and off separately for even greater usability and control of CPU utilization when needed.
