Description

Sovereign of analog mastering equalizers

If there was a hierarchy of analog studio gear (and let’s face it, there kind of is) it’d be hard to dispute the Chandler Limited® Curve Bender’s claim to the throne. Among analog mastering grade equalizers, this one’s about as blue-blooded as they come.

With tremendous pedigree, huge yet controlled power, and most importantly, exceptional sound quality, thanks to component-level modelling of the original germanium and inductor circuits, the Curve Bender, now available for the first time in native format, reigns supreme over the domain of tone-shaping in analog mastering.

Legendary circuits

The sound of this unit comes from equalizer circuits which can trace their lineage back to one of the most legendary high-end British consoles of all time, the EMI TG12345.

Subtle, yet powerful

With its gentle, carefully designed curves, silky top-end, and tight lows, it’s impossible not to improve your sound. Just set and forget.

Modern royalty

In software form, the majestic sound quality of the Curve Bender is only built upon and expanded by the addition of Mid/Side processing.

Impeccable Lineage

The Chandler Limited® Curve Bender is based on desk circuits from the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London, used to create albums of genuinely legendary status, such as Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd, and Abbey Road by The Beatles. And as with any truly supreme successor to a noble line, it builds on the greatness of its ancestors.

The Curve Bender has more bands (four, compared to the original console’s two), more fixed filter points (a huge fifty-one, up from just nine, chosen and designed in the image of the original circuits by Chandler Limited® founder, Wade Goeke), more Q and gain options, and added low and high pass filters, making the unit a mastering powerhouse without sacrificing the exquisite analog sound-flavor which made it a leader.

Modern Power

In software form, the Curve Bender plug-in not only allows you the luxury of using this ultra-special crown-jewel mastering EQ in multiple places in the same mix (across instrument groups AND the master bus, for example), but also adds functionality to the original hardware, with Mid/Side processing and channel linking. From left to right, mid to side, everything the light touches is yours.

A mastering grade processor, the Curve Bender is perfect for gently sculpting the entire mix, with never a hint of harshness despite its endless power.

Professional presets

To help you get the best out of the Curve Bender, we've asked some top professional mixing and mastering engineers to create presets. Quickly and easily dial in a sound you like by referencing Joe Chicarelli, Tony Maserati, Howard Willing, Kevin Kadish, and Maor Appelbaum.

Mastering, in particular, is all about subtlety, so you'll want to tweak to taste, but these professional presets will give you great ideas, and get you in the ballpark of a stellar sound in seconds.

A Crowning Glory

Not all equalizers are created equal. The crisp, powerful, performance of the Chandler Limited® Curve Bender will open up the soundscape of any song, and take it to glorious new levels. Whether on the master bus, the drum group, or a lead vocal track, this kind of quality rules your sound without being brash or crude. It’s refined, natural, regal, and it will elevate your mixes whether you’re a club DJ, an urban poet beatmaker, a rock & roll rebel, or a pop princess. All people are the Curve Bender’s people.
