Kush Audio Clariphonic 500
Of all the challenges an engineer faces, getting a smooth, silky top end is undoubtedly one of the hardest. The Clariphonic was designed to solve that problem effortlessly, and now thousands of engineers have parked it on their mix bus because it delivers on its promise of an instantly ‘finished’, mastered sound.
The Clariphonic 500 module makes it affordable to sprinkle that magic on vocals, drums, and individual instruments as well. The signal path is identical to the original rack unit, with a serious kind of voodoo – somehow it brings out the subtle beauty in everything it touches.
An EQ unlike any other, Clariphonic embodies Kush’s relentlessly forward thinking approach to all things sound and music.
Behold the Clariphonic Dual-Channel Parallel Equalizer from Kush Audio, a fiendishly clever approach to equalization that was designed from the ground up to give you the kind of air, clarity, and presence previously found only in very expensive analog equalizers, the kind that are often old and difficult to find. With two high-shelves running in parallel on each channel, and your choice of 6 unusual and carefully selected corner frequencies covering everything from the mids to the 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 phaseless. You get effortless, natural high end for days.
