Engineers know all too well the everyday struggles: how to get that silky smooth air that you'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 through 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 plugins 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 with 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 sounds amazing and the only way to move them is 'up'.

When your signal enters the Clariphonic, it is split across 6 parallel paths like channels on a console. 2 of those channels, your Full Frequency signals, go directly to an internal summing buss and are never processed or altered in any way. Each of the other 4 channels is filtered through its own equalization circuit, and the resulting sounds are blended in with your 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 those channels and listen to only the signal paths you wish to hear. Imagine this: you mute the Full Frequency signals and, having now solo'd the pristine top end of this box, you feed it to your favorite sweetening compressors and saturators, thicken it up, then blend that back in parallel on your own console or DAW. The result is a lush, holographically dense high end that screams "expensive" and can be automated or effected as you wish.
