Arturia TridA-Pre

Priced and Rare Musical EQ




TridA-Pre gives you all the power and features of the fabled Trident A Range, and more! Let’s take a look at how this elite channel strip translates as a plugin.

4 band, twin-channel equalizer
The fantastically musical A Range EQ has been recreated in all its glory. The high, high-mid, low-mid, and low EQ bands have 4 switchable frequencies, calibrated to match the original unit’s specification. These can be cut or boosted by 15dB independently on the left and right channels, or linked together. This gives you great freedom to shape your sound in a stereo space.

Low Pass Filter
Notch out the high end at 9kHz, 12kHz, 15kHz, or hit 2 or 3 switches to make more dramatic chance, this will soften the high frequencies of your signal.

Input Gain
From super-subtle overtones to growling solid-state drive, the Input Gain knob can be pushed to add whatever tonal flavor you desire.

High Pass Filter
Carve out the super-low frequencies from your signal, with cuts placed at 25Hz, 50Hz, and 100Hz. Like the Low Pass, you can also combine 2 or 3 switches for a stronger effect.

Mid/Side mode
Missing on the original A Range, TridA-Pre lets you use advanced mid/side techniques without external processing or convertors, meaning your audio will sound amazing in both mono and stereo.

Output Trim
Simple, but always useful. The output trim lets you adjust the “master volume” of the output without changing its tone.

It’s fair to say that since the original unit was built, the music industry has seen some changes. To bring this legend up to date, we’ve also included some optional enhancements to make the most of your DAW.

EQ bypass Pretty self-explanatory, this simple switch activates or deactivates the EQ section of TridA-Pre on one or both channels.
Automatic Gain control As you raise the gain, the output level is automatically adjusted, giving you a consistent, reliable perceived audio level. Now you can be sure that the changes you make sound great because they improve the tone, not just because it makes everything louder.
Phase Inversion A handy little utility that flips the polarity of one or both channels, great for correcting phasing issues or giving you voicing options.
Stereo Link Link both channels so that any any changes to the EQ or gain structure affect both channels at once. Disabled, you can make discrete changes to each channel.
TridA-Pre also features a gorgeous GUI. This attention to detail even extends to classic post-gain VU meters, which can be calibrated to your taste, and light up when the signal is peaking at -1dBFS.
