Add Air and Clarity to Your Tracks



Add Air and Clarity to Your Tracks

If you’re like most recording engineers, then you’re always looking for the perfect way to add that ever-elusive smooth-and-silky top end “air” to your tracks. Here’s the magic piece of gear you’ve been dreaming of: the Kush Audio Clariphonic dual-channel parallel equalizer. Far from the harmonic exciters and magic-wand plug-ins that often create more problems than they fix, the Clariphonic equalizer takes a natural and uniquely clever approach to frequency shaping. Put simply, it’s extremely difficult to get a bad sound out of this box, even if you’re completely new to EQ’ing.

Here’s how the Clariphonic equalizer works. Unlike typical equalizers, the Clariphonic gives you a purpose-built set of front-panel controls. Rather than dealing with frequency ranges and Q widths, you handle two main controls per channel (Focus and Clarity) plus toggles for either control that let you further define the Clariphonic’s character. Under the surface, there’s a lot more going on. The Clariphonic actually splits each signal that enters it into six completely parallel parts. Think of these sections as six channels in an old-school analog mixing console. Four of these paths lead through the two Focus engines and the two Clarity engines. Both the Focus and the Clarity engines treat high and low frequencies independently and then sum them before their independent gain controls.

This boost only architecture allows you both to adjust the balance within the signal path and the level of the signal path’s output in the summed mix. Independent of either the Focus or the Clarity path, the two full frequency paths run straight to the mix bus and are unaffected by the rest of the Clariphonic’s circuitry. This gives you the option of blending in the original sound with the affected signal – more or less like a wet/dry mix. The result is that you can add lush overtones and air to your sound, without taking anything away or adding muddiness.
