Push & Pull Equalizer
The Equalizer module on the Paradox is designed to make push-pull filtering easy. This powerful equalization technique, with recognizable filter curves, can help you bring your mixes to life, by adding definition to drums, bass, guitar, synths and vocals. Besides the filter’s Frequency and Gain controls, Paradox gives you three controls to dial in the push-pull shape in an easy and intuitive way. The Curve control sets the width of the filter, the Balance control sets the complementary filter boost, and the Twist control biases the push-pull filter to the left or right. With the additional choose between stereo, mid and side mode per filter, the paradox Equalizer provides you with an extremely musical workflow that delivers pronounced filtering effects in no time.
The Compressor module on the Paradox uses SoundSpot’s ‘infinite’ gain reduction setup, and lets you emulate the behaviour of analog compression with its continuous ‘RMS-time’ control. Together with it’s continuous ‘mix’ feature, the Paradox Compressor module lets you apply smooth compression in a very flexible way, as well as different parallel compression styles like ‘New York Compression’. In addition, the Compressor features a high pass sidechain-filter that allows you to ignore heavy kick and bass parts to achieve steady and predictable results even when compressing powerful electronic tracks.
