The Softube Abbey Road Studios Brilliance Pack gives you three unique equalizers that focus on the presence/treble frequencies, letting you breathe air and life into individual tracks or complete mixes. During their 1960s tour of duty, Abbey Road engineers considered these proprietary "presence boxes" indispensable on vocals, guitars, and drums - especially snare and bass drum. Deployed throughout the studios during recording and mixing, these EQs were used to define the sound of instruments, brighten up echo sends, and strap over compressors for de-essing. They were even used in the mastering and cutting rooms. For the Abbey Road Studios Brilliance Pack, Softube meticulously modeled the passive circuitry of the three classic hardware units. The originals were designed in-house and quickly became a secret weapon. They were never available to the outside world - until this plug-in version.

Softube Abbey Road Studios Brilliance Pack at a Glance:
  • The RS127 Rack (grey faceplate)
  • The RS127 Box (green faceplate)
  • The RS135 (fixed 8kHz boost)
The RS127 Rack (grey faceplate)

This is the original Abbey Road Studios treble equalizer. The grey RS127 Rack lets you boost or cut up to 10dB at 2.1, 3.5, and 10kHz. Use it, for instance, to add presence to a lead vocal, punch up an upright or electric bass, add snap to a snare drum, or put more beater point on your kick.

The RS127 Box (green faceplate)

When the original RS127 quickly became a coveted piece of outboard in the studios, additional units were built. The RS127 Green Box deployed the same circuit as its predecessor, but added an audio transformer - which was found to dramatically alter the sonic character. It also shifted the operating frequencies higher - and this, naturally, is captured in the plug-in.

The RS135 (fixed 8kHz boost)

The RS127 exhibited a rather large frequency gap, and the RS135 was created to fill it. The RS135 rocks a single band, fixed at 8kHz. In keeping with this spartan no-nonsense design, it offers boost only - but it's just as silky and sweet as its stablemates. Sweetwater engineers have already embraced the RS135 - and indeed, the entire Softube Abbey Road Studios Brilliance Pack. Instantiate these indispensable equalizers once, and we think you'll be hooked as well.

Abbey Brilliance Pack Software Suite

When I received this suite, I immediately put it to the test - how much of a tool is this? Well, the answer is STARDARD Tool! I use 2 of the 3 boxes virtually on every plug-in amp that I have. The 3rd box would suit me as well, if I didn't already have my other plug-ins. If you're working "in the box", then definitely add these 3 boxes to "the box"!

Buy these immediately when you can

Beautifully adds life and color to an array of audio sources -- clarity and punch even after a compressor without clipping -- fantastic plug ins. I have had my eye on this bundle for 6 years. They were on sale, and I bought them. I own literally hundreds of plug ins: these are one of the new must haves on a lot of tracks
