Jade 2 consists of 6 different hardware blocks combined into 3 equalizer emulators,
2 dynamics processors and a completely new preamp section.
Magic in the air”:
Jade 2 can easily be called one of the most versatile plugin sets we have ever created. Not only does it provide a deep, warm, sophisticated sound, but it’s also an ideal choice for adding shine to your tracks. Jade adds light and air to any source (even reverb!), both in mixing and mastering.
Jade 2 EQ – 3 selectable equalizers for final tone shaping:
Model A is based on an American hardware unit known for its ultra-high frequency band. The original device is characterized by a maximum positive gain boost of +10 dB for each frequency. Our emulation includes the corresponding
-10 dB negative range per frequency to offer enhanced versatility.
Model B is based on a powerful device introduced to the market in 1994 and created in the UK.
Model C is a hybrid equalizer that combines 2 different equalizers (C1 and C2) into one processor.
Jade 2 is equipped with two dynamics processors: a discrete Class A compressor (D) and a peak limiter (E). The main idea of the original device was to provide transparent, musical dynamics control. These emulations can be activated and used individually (C/D) or simultaneously (C+D). When using both emulations at the same time, their behavior will be consistent, so the limiter module will follow the compressor module. The behavior and sound of these dynamics processors may change depending on Jade’s dynamic routing controls in the channel strip version.
Note: The Jade 2 compressor follows the improvements that have been made to all recent Acustica compressors. The overflow problem that could occur when the input signal level was too high has been resolved, and the input trimmer can now be operated even with signals close to 0 dB. The compression curve has also been extended to allow compression of very low signals.
Jade 2 Preamp:
Jade 2’s stand-alone preamp section includes an accurate emulation of a unique Class A mic preamp/mixer for recording engineers who require a highly flexible audio path without sacrificing audio quality.
5 preamp models (A, B, C1, C2, D) are included in the Jade channel strip, as well as the Jade 2 preamp (in the “custom” bank/category). They are based on a collection of various high-quality hardware devices whose harmonic content and frequency response are easily accessible for use in your tracks.
The preamp section also includes several preamp emulations divided into six banks (Line, Mic, Fat, Tape, Bus, Cust), as well as unique high- and low-pass filters. You’ll be amazed at the endless variety of tones Jade has to offer for your mix.
