Unique parallel equalizer with dual shelves per channel makes instruments and final mixes sound more vibrant, alive, and present.
The Kush Audio Clariphonic Dual-Channel Parallel Equalizer is unique new approach to equalization that just like parallel compression, makes instruments such as drums sound clearn, punchy, and larger than life. The dual-channel Clariphonic parallel equalizer gives you the kind of air, clarity, and presence previously found in rare and very expensive analog equalizers.
With two high-shelves running in parallel on each channel, plus your choice of 6 unusual and carefully selected corner frequencies—covering everything from mids to supersonics—there is no limit to the types of sweet high end the Clariphonic can produce. The internal parallel signal paths produce a form of additive-only high-frequency equalization that is at once holographic, transparent, and virtually without phase distortion. You get effortless, natural high end for days.
Bottom line: every frequency sounds amazing and expensive. Drums, vocals, acoustic guitars, even entire mixes; almost any sound can be made more present, more detailed, and more alive with the Clariphonic Parallel Equalizer from Kush Audio.
Getting the polished "sounds like a record" sheen on your mix:
Say's the Clariphonic's designer, Gregory Scott, "I know all too well the struggles we face every day: how to get that silky smooth air that we've heard on vocals and overheads a million times but can't quite seem to recreate: how to clear the mud from our sound without cutting away the warmth and soul at the same time; how to get our tracks to cut thru a mix without making them edgy, harsh, or unnaturally bright.
Or, the Holy Grail: How to get that polished, "sounds like a record" sheen on our mixes without resorting to plug-ins or hardware that do more harm than good.
Enter the Clariphonic Dual-Channel Parallel Equalizer, a fiendishly clever new approach to equalization that was designed from the ground up to address these very issues and solve them witht the flick of a switch and twist of a knob. Whether you're a total beginner or an expert on "Q," this box makes it impossible to pick a wrong frequency or make a wrong move . . . because every frequency sound amazing and the only way to move them is 'up.'"
Of course, you don't even have to take Gregory's word for it - once you hear the Clariphonic in action, you'll be convinced - we certainly were.
When your signal enters the Clarphonic, it's split across 6 parallel paths like channels on a console. Two of those channels, your full-frequency signals, go directly to an internal summing bus and are never processed or altered in any way. Each of the other four channels are filtered through its own equalization circuit and the resulting sounds are blended with the full-frequency signal via the Focus and Clarity controls. This unique internal architecture creates a boost-only form of equalization that has to be heard to be believed; you can crank the high-end by 8, 10, even 15dB without a trace of harshness, aggression, or phase distortion.
As with any console, you can mute any of the channels and listen to only the signal paths you wish to hear. Imagine this: you mute the full-frequency signals and, having now soloed the pristine top end of this box, you feed it to your favorite sweetening compressors and saturators; thicken it up, and blend it back in parallel on your own console or DAW. The result is a lush, holographic, dense high end that screams "expensive" and can be automated or effected as you wish.
