Musiqual Red facilitates tube enthusiasts get that particular sound that they live for.
The Musiqual Red’s EQ offers 31 carefully selected bands to choose from, representing the “key” frequencies when it comes to Tube gear. Each band comes with a designated “Colour” algorithm, enhancing the unit’s character and allowing for more musical and Tube-flavoured equalization.
Similarly to the slower Tube pre-amps, Musiqual Red also tends to push sounds back, in terms of perceived depth of field.
The Harmonic Distortion component of Musiqual Red was designed to simulate the response that Tube circuits exhibit when used “hot”. It primarily introduces 2nd and 3rd order harmonics, along with some 4th order harmonics and it allows for easy control over the amount of distortion added to the signal.
Musiqual Red’s Compressor is specifically tuned to complement the Tube character of this unit. It has fixed attack and release settings and allows for easy control of the amount of compression applied to the sound.
