Filter Section

Head Crusher features a great sounding filter section, with both a resonant low-pass and high-pass filter, however the most interesting part of the filter section is the tone knob.

Turn the tone knob to the right to give your source track crispier highs, or turn it to the left to make your track's bass sound much more powerful and full.

Multi Transient is a powerful tool for tone shaping, control the amount of attack and sustain for every band, including the master output.

Perfect Drums
Multi Transient is the perfect tool to control and shape your drum sound, before reaching for a high shelf try boosting the attack on the highs, and boosting the sustain in the low mids, and if that isn't enough each band has a 2x button that doubles the intensity of the effect. 

Drums
Using Multi Transient on all your drums you can make sure you get them to behave exactly how you want, and sound as powerful as you need them to be, and if you need even more of a boost you can adjust the final output with the master envelope shaper.
And If you had to record drums with 1 or 2 mics, you can use multi transient to bring out the cymbals,snare and kick easily.

Clean up vocals
Got a great vocal take but you don't like the sound of the room? No Problem!
Simply lower the sustain knob on the lower mid band and click the 2x button if necesary.

Mastering
Mastering a track but can't get enough kick or snare? maybe the cymbals can't be heard properly?
Use Multi Transient to zone in and boost those problem areas.

Synthesis
Multi Transient coupled with a synth can be used to make even more exciting sounds,
using the 2x, Clip and Sustain options can add new and interesting textures to your sounds.

intense, rich and significant sound.

GSXL4070 is a fully parametric stereo equalizer with 4 bands (LF, LMF, HMF, HF) and HP (BASS CUT), Q control, and +-12db attenuation/boosting of each
band. Ideal for mixing and mastering purposes.

For the best possible clarity of sound and minimum artifacts, 2x internal oversampling algorithms were used.
- British mix-console EQ "solid state electronics" style of sound without unwanted coloration or an overly saturated sound. With 2x internal oversampling
for double precise DSP algorithms, calculations for the minimum of unwanted artifacts.

- 4 fully parametric EQ bands:

LF - Low frequency, (20-500Hz)
LMF - Low mid frequency, (200 Hz - 3 kHz)
HMF - high mid frequency, (700 Hz - 12 kHz)
HF - high frequency ( 1.5 kHz - 20 kHz)

HP (High pass - Bass cut) filter 15 - 400 Hz bass cut with on/off switch

with Q-control (bandwidth), attenuation/boost ( + / - 12db per band),

- Output Volume knob
