Multiband Mastering Processor.
Based on our GOLDEN MASTER eurorack module and our experience in electronic live music performances, we developed the GOLDEN MASTER Pedal – a stereo multiband processor PEDAL with surprisingly wide application palette: from guitarists (and especially bass guitarists) to pedalboards’ or entire electronic mix end-of-chain processor to deliver high pressure audio for live concerts and venues: sound loud and punchy without overloading the master limiter.
GOLDEN MASTER Pedal takes inspiration from studio mastering and radio loudness units from the 1990s and gives control over the , (with
) and processing:
along with the and multiband input that can be triggered using audio sources sent into the expression pedal input. The settings are simplified and intuitive. All of the settings can be stored to any of the 3 available preset slots for instant recall. This pedal isn't just another compressor; it's a conduit for innovation and expression, destined to become an essential tool in the arsenal of forward-thinking musicians and sound designers.
Thanks to the 24-bit/96kHz audio fidelity with 32 bit internal processing, you'll get incredible processing power. It features three bands - low, medium, and high - each handling its distinct part of the audio spectrum. These controls feature a single knob that both boosts and cuts signals. Set the overall loudness limit of your sounds and the brickwall limiter ensures all your sounds stay in check. Bass guitar players will love the proper control over the low end spectrum - stay in mono where needed with enough punch and clarity - that might become the only must-have effect your bass would need. This multi-band effect is the perfect end-of-chain tool, ensuring that anything you throw at it sounds dynamic and full. Additionally it features high impedance inputs and pseudo-balanced outputs, allowing it to work as a DI-box on stage.
Configurable expression jack input can either be used to control EQ band gain or can be switched to sidechain mode, which works by extracting the envelope follower curve from an audio source fed into the expression pedal input and can be mapped to control each EQ band in certain proportions (directly or inverted), turning Golden Master into a multiband sidechain processor.
