Plug-ins Controlling the parameters of a plug-in
Opt-2A is a processor that emulates a standard vintage model of vacuum tube optical compressor.
The level is controlled using optical components such as a CdS-Cell and EL panel to produce
smooth compression. The beautiful high-frequency overtones in the warm distortion created by the
vacuum tube circuit generate an elegant and sophisticated sound.
Adjusts the output level.
PEAK REDUCTION knob
Adjusts the compression amount of the signal.
Adjusts the compression ratio.
METER SELECT knob
GAIN REDUCTION shows the amount of gain reduction when the compressor is operating.
With the OUTPUT +10 or OUTPUT +4 settings, the output signal level reference is
considered as –18 dB, and a value of +10 dB or +4 dB relative to that reference is shown as
EQ-1A is a processor that emulates a vintage EQ that is considered the classic passive EQ. It uses a
distinctive style of operation, with controllable boost and attenuation (cut) for each of two regions,
low and high. The frequency response is completely different from that of a typical EQ, giving this
model its unique character. The input/output circuit and vacuum tubes also give the sound an
extremely musical character, producing a well-balanced sound.
Switches the processor on/off.
If this is off, the filter section is bypassed but the signal passes through the input/output
transformer and amp circuit.
LOW FREQUENCY knob
Adjusts the frequency of the low-range filter.
(LOW) BOOST knob
Adjusts the amount of boost for the frequency region specified by the LOW FREQUENCY
(LOW) ATTEN knob
Adjusts the amount of attenuation for the frequency region specified by the LOW
