It's now my turn in the demo line. This thing is pretty awesome. Really loving it on P-bass tracks, electric guitars, snare and vocals that need a lift. The shelves are more useful than I expected. Beats the plugin, easy to dial in and has a unique vibe compared to other EQ's. Going to track with it tomorrow which should be fun.
Dogears, first listen sounds great. There's something sweet about this EQ.
I love the Soundtoys plugin. No exposure to the original hardware. Any info on how to get the plugin's drive pot effect with this new hardware? So far I've always used the plugin with some "drive." Just hit it harder, or softer in analog? Does it vibe in the same way? I like to use the Soundtoys plugin for EQ pretreated harmonics/distortion effects. Can you do that with the Ironage hardware?
Thanks! It’s been a lot of stress fun developing it.
Yeah, the Siemens circuit has some great class A tone and it warms up nicely when you push it. That drive knob is one thing that’s easier to do with the plugin. To do that effect you’d have to drive it harder on the analog side. They modeled the Sie-Q after a 295, and the amplifier gain blocks are the same on the LH95. The distortion is going to be very similar.
