Darkglass booster d'harmoniques
Robert C., 29.11.2019
C'est une nouveauté chez Darkglass.
Voilà une boîte magique qui permet de sculpter le son comme on le désire. C'est à la fois un préampli et un extenseur d'harmoniques. Je ne peux m'empêcher de le comparer à un Aphex Aural Exciter ou un EXR que j'avais en studio afin de rehausser les harmoniques des instruments.
Les réglages sont très fins et permettent de définir le son avec une extrême précision, sans aucune dureté.
La basse peut ainsi s'installer dans tous les mix sans que certaines fréquences soient gommées. La rondeur des graves n'est pas affectée et les aigus sont clairs et très précis. Le médium peut s'ajuster subtilement en fonction des fréquences choisies à l'aide du correcteur semi-paramétrique.
Le pourcentage du signal modifié est ajustable en sortie.
Le souffle est absent; on commence seulement à le percevoir si l'on pousse les réglages dans leurs limites.
On peut dire que le résultat offre un ciselé incomparable tout en respectant la personnalité des instruments. Les attaques bénéficient d'une fermeté exceptionnelle; le développement des harmoniques est bien présent sans pour autant que le médium acquière de la dureté. Une fois en circuit, il est impossible de s'en passer tant le résultat est probant.
La construction est solide. Toutefois, certains pourront regretter que les potentiomètres grave et aigu soient aussi petits; en fait, une fois réglés on aura peu tendance à les modifier en cours de jeu.
Cet appareil est plutôt destiné à être inséré dans un pedal board qui possède son alimentation répartie; sinon une alimentation externe courante de 9 Volts est indispensable car il n'accepte pas de piles.
Le prix est très correct compte-tenu de la qualité professionnelle.

Wunderbar
Sterling 44, 08.03.2021
Nutze das Teil im moment nur zuhause aber bin schon scharf drauf wie es sich auf zukünftigen Gigs macht. Lässt einen echt aufhorchen wenn man es einschalten, vor allem bei Slapstyle- Bass. Selbst stumpfe Saiten bekommen plötzlich die notwendigen Obertöne.

The Secret Sauce!
Sakari T., 25.09.2020
A must have for live bass sound! When you kick this booster on it's like removing a film of soot from your sound. You can get that studio quality awesomeness going with very little effort.

I have used this in studio only once and it felt like having a DI with turbo in the signal chain. It was easy to overdo the tone shaping but I is definitely worthwhile to check out if it works for you in studio setup.

Great equalization controls with emphasis on the middle frequencies. If you really need to cut through the mix just cranck up the Character knob and there you go. Instant bite.

Great Pre-amp in a pedal size package!

6/5 stars.
