Slate Digital SD-PE1 - Passive Power, Classic Character

The most unique passive equalizer ever made joins the ever-expanding lineup of
processors that make up the Virtual Mix Rack ecosystem.

SD-PE1 provides a realistic reproduction of a classic passive EQ while also providing
unique features only possible through digital emulation and modeling. When it comes to idiosyncrasies, perhaps nothing outshines this EQ, as it does not operate like most EQs people are used to.

A natural side effect of passive EQs is that the audio coming out of them will always be
significantly quieter than the audio going in. To combat this, the original hardware
featured a tube amplifier stage after the EQ. SD-PE1 makes it possible to turn this stage
on and off, which means you can remove those saturation and color effects from the
processed signal without a drop in output level.

On the original hardware model, frequency selection for processing was limited to what
was presented on the front of the hardware. However, in addition to adding extra
frequencies to each band, SD-PE1's frequency selection is both stepped and
incremental. It’s a tinkerer’s paradise!

The piece of hardware that directly inspired this plugin has been a studio staple since it
was first introduced in the early 1960s. The addition of SD-PE1 to Virtual Mix Rack’s
ever-expanding plugin ecosystem brings even more historic analog processing power
and color right to your DAW.
