This is part of the Titan V2 series but is also ELITE as I sampled it with the highest quality settings I am able to extract out of the hardware and my sampling tools. Superb upgrades on the original samplings with improved calibration, and size optimisation. This is the line input of my Vintage Lustraphone Helios module. Use an EQ before or after this baby to carve your sound further. I was in the throes of pre-mixing my a second album and after determining that I was going for an overall Helios sound, I realised that I was yet to sample the line input. I had made the Preamp available but the line in was not there. So I duly went about sampling it in an afternoon. There is one distinct difference between the line in and the Preamp.
The Line in has a gentle rolloff on the high end even when pushed. the preamp tends to have a lift in the same region when pushed. So they complement each other well. This sampling was done with the EQ engaged but flat and I also sampled the Bass settings at 60 hz, 120 hz, 250 hz and 400 hz. These were sampled with the Bass gain knob clicked in. It is the lowest setting when you engage the EQ on the low band but it actually adds about two dBs of gain. So that is what I sampled. The low end bump when the EQ is engaged and the bass knob is clicked in is what gives this module amazing low end warmth and vintage goo. So that gives five presets in total. This is THE Helios sound IMHO. Use judiciously with Kramer HLS or the UAD version and you will have a vintage sounding mix in no time. Place the emulation plugins before the nebula preset and prepare to smile as you tweak away – you can place it after too taste but if Nebula is last in the chain it gives more mojo IMHO. Wonderful distortion with a subtle levelling action, you may need to use some make up gain if you use high G-drive settings. Enjoy!!I surely am.
