The God Mode makes use of a push-pull technology inspired by the legendary analog Pultec EQ, a passive tube eq from the 50s, widely used in the 70s/80s for both broadcasting and mixing. The Pultec EQ would ‘push’ the gain for a certain frequency range into its tube circuit, and would then ‘pull’ it back again, to smooth out the frequency response. This creates a sound close to the original but with a nice warmth added to the boosted frequency ranges. The God Mode introduces a modern version of this technique.
The goal of multi band distortion is to get control over where to apply drive in the frequency spectrum. This technique has helped many producers over the years to shape their sound in many interesting ways, and helped them create balanced and lively mixes. However, wouldn't multiband distortion be much better and easier if you had full control over the coloration of the effect like using an equalizer graph - for example when driving a full drum beat. Pretty cool right? How about removing the dynamic unpredictability of processing separate bands and compensating their volume manually? The God Mode uses push-pull technology, that allows you to create perfectly balanced saturation no matter how dynamic your track is. In addition, how sweet would it be to use multiband distortion in parallel or to create a proper dry/wet mix without phase issues? As the God Mode uses linear phase filters you can now blend in the effect as you please, either very extreme for creative purposes or subtle during mastering. “The God Mode gives you ultimate control and creativity” Lets go push-pull!
The God Mode uses a on-steroids version of denise’s Tape Analog VM™ algorithm, known from our Bad Tape plugin. This tape saturation algorithm emulates the pleasant smoothing caused by the hysteresis phenomena in old tape machines. However, we are in the digital realm, so why not let you push it to the max, while being 100% transparent when set to zero? The Tape Analog VM™ algorithm will bring you the best of both analog flavour and digital precision.
