Professionelles Masteringtool

23.01.2017
Ich verwende den VariMu hauptsächlich als Summenkompressor. Über den Sound noch viele Worte zu verlieren ist ziemlich unnötig- das Teil ist schließlich aus gutem Grund fester Bestandteil vieler Topstudios. Angenehm fällt auf, daß die Regelbereiche so gewählt wurden, daß das Kompressions-/ Limitingverhalten auch bei zu gut gemeinten Einstellungen immer noch sehr musikalisch bleibt. Der angenehmste Effekt stellt sich m.E. ein, wenn die Zeigerinstrumente sich nur wenig bewegen- so bleibt der Klang tonal fast unverändert, wirkt aber ?dichter? und ?massiver?. Gut auch, daß der früher nur als Option erhältliche HP Sidechain jetzt serienmäßig ist, bei aktivierter Funktion bleibt der Bassbereich weitgehend unbeeinträchtigt, was bei sehr basslastigen Tracks sehr hilfreich sein kann. Durch die echten Bypass- Schalter sind aussagekräftige Vergleiche möglich. Der Preis des VariMu ist sicher hoch, aber der Verarbeitung angemessen, die verwendeten Bauteile sind allesamt äußerst hochwertig. Durch die insgesamt 8 Röhren im Gerät wird das Teil richtig heiß, deshalb den Hinweis, mindestens 1 HE um das Gerät frei zu lassen oder oder Lüftungsblenden zu verwenden, ernst nehmen. Zusammengefasst ein echter Klassiker mit zeitlosem Design, angenehmer Bedienung und äußerst hochwertiger Verarbeitung: klare Empfehlung. Wie immer bei meinen Bestellungen bei Thomann: Service und Abwicklung perfekt.

déjà 4 ans

Arnaud939, 14.06.2011
déjà 4 ans que je l'utilise dans mon studio de mastering sur chaque albums,
c'est bien le compresseur le plus doux et le plus musical que je connaisse, il épaissi en douceur tous les mix, il est capable de colorer des transitoires sans jamais apparaitre comme un compresseur, les calmer ou au contraire les dynamiser, et surtout son point fort et l'évidente facilitée avec la quelle on peut lier un mix.
j'adore cette machine, en mastering biensur, mais aussi en live en insert sur le bus LR de la console, sur des drum en studio et c'est le seul que j'utilise en musique classique, si j'ai besoin de baisser un peu la dynamique.
