Air is a new type of filter that helps you to restore or to add brightness to the sound, while always remaining natural. It allows to gently add high frequencies, without adding harshness or unpleasant digital artifacts.
The smoothness of the Air allows you to bring an instrument to the front of a mix, add a subtle brilliance to a sound or to make a vocal track breathe, simply by increasing Air.
The HiCut is useful for attenuating frequencies above the cutoff frequency. Unlike many digital equalizers, the Air module’s HiCut filter is perfectly matched to an analog filter curve. This is very important in order to achieve a natural attenuation in the high frequencies.
The HiCut Slope goes from 6dB/oct to 36dB/oct, allowing a broad range of uses, with a musical adjustement of the resonance.
The HiCut and the Air can be used in combination: boosting the Air opens the sound, and cutting the ultra highs with the HiCut might be useful to tame the sound while keeping the openness.
