This one is not for the faint-hearted. The Distopik Audio Destruction Unit is based upon the famous REDD-47 tube microphone preamplifier circuit but sports Carnhill input and output transformers (Neve anyone?) and packs both REDD's "in your face" high mids and a hint of that British signature weight in the low-mids. An additional gain stage allows for a broad range of saturation tones, from subtle warmth all the way to guitar amp mayhem, while the Bias control in and four different drive circuit filters provide tone shaping. Combined with the dry/wet mixing capability, it's a powerful tool for adding body, presence and punch to your mixes, stems or single tracks or a fun creative tool for organic and colorful distortion.

Bettermaker Mastering Limiter is one of the few analog audio processors that already comes automated out of the box. In that way it was only natural to put it on mix:analog and give a myriad of software limiters a run for their money.
Elysia museq is a special box. It is a fully discrete, Class-A dual-mono equaliser that’s exceptionally well designed and built, with a sound that will redefine your perception of equalisation.
