Sand 3 replicates the sonic behavior of a series of high-end British consoles that have dominated the pop and pop scenes since the 1980s.
Sound engineers around the world note their direct, slightly “aggressive” sound and logical layout.
Sand 3 EQ:
Consists of three switchable 4-band parametric equalizers, as well as three additional sets of high- and low-pass filters.
The Model A was based on the modern British console EQ.
Model B is based on another highly sought after module from the same Oxfordshire manufacturer.
The Model C is based on a truly outstanding console that was originally intended for music production, but has eventually found its way into broadcast and post-production studios. It has been used on countless R&B, classical and pop records.
Sand 3+E EQ:
This is the first “homemade” equalizer included in the Sand 3 package. It is based on the British console first introduced to the market in 1979; today it is considered a “classic” that changed mixing forever.
Based on the 3+E model, the plugin features a switchable 4-band parametric EQ, additional high and low pass filters, and a preamp section.
Sand 3+G EQ:
This is the second of two “homegrown” EQ models found in Sand; it is based on the famous console released in 1993. The plugin is a switchable 4-band parametric equalizer with a preamp section and additional high and low pass filters.
Sand 3 Comp: This is “The” Bus Compressor:
Sand 3 Comp is inspired by three high-end British hardware devices. Nothing will help glue your tracks together like this excellent bus compressor; What’s more, this module will likely become your new favorite bus compressor in the mix.
Sand 3 preamp module:
The sound of the preamps in a console is an integral part of the sonic fingerprint of a particular model, so when we sample any console we try to include individually sampled preamps. This allows you to use them in your projects sequentially – thereby reproducing the circuitry and unique sound of the original equipment – or use them in any other way, using the individual responses of selected channels.
