Introducing the VSPE: Vacuum Stereo Passive Equalizer

Discover the groundbreaking VSPE, an audio innovation that seamlessly merges the timeless warmth of vacuum tube technology with the precision of digital control. After years of meticulous development and testing, this revolutionary product is set to transform your sound experience.

Leveraging our Grammy award-winning expertise in studio processors, we've crafted a fully analog passive equalizer with authentic vacuum tube and transformer circuitry. Additionally, our design includes handcrafted audio transformers from Bettermaker for unmatched quality and performance.

Passive equalizers are known for delivering a warm, rounded low end and airy high-frequency range. With the VSPE, these qualities are enhanced by the unique character of vacuum tubes and transformers—creating our signature sound, HEAT.

Our innovative design allows you to easily balance between the pristine clarity of vacuum tubes and the lush saturation of transformers with the touch of a button. Seamless integration with our plugin and DAW provides quick recall and automation of settings.

The new VSPE plugin extends versatility, enabling you to control and automate all parameters within your DAW while auditioning high and low frequencies separately. Additionally, stereo and dual-mono modes open up a world of possibilities.

Our plugin also offers mastering-grade digital high-pass and low-pass filters, perfect for precisely shaping your low and high ends.

Whether recording, tracking, producing, mixing, or mastering, the VSPE delivers exceptional flexibility and sonic character in one sophisticated package. Experience the best of both worlds with the VSPE: vintage warmth meets cutting-edge technology.
