Channel Robot introduced a series of DuoTone Effect. Each of the seven DuoTone plug-ins provide a different effect in a unique dual configuration with flexible routing options. There are many ways to get creative with soundtracks.
Each of Channel Robot’s seven new DuoTone plugins takes a classic effect and multiplies it by two. Why settle for one delay when you can have two that can be directed and combined in different ways?
All seven new plugins share the same idea and layout. After passing through the input gain, the signal splits into three branches: two effects channels and a dry signal. Each of the two effect channels (A and B) offers a parametric EQ section, which means you can tune them to work with different parts of the frequency spectrum.
After EQ, the signal reaches the actual effect, where you’ll find all the typical controls for delay, chorus, phaser, compressor, etc., as well as separate pan and gain controls for each channel.
The button in the center allows you to toggle the routing configuration. In parallel mode, the two effect channels are independent of each other and both feed their signal to the output section. In sequential mode, the output of channel A is routed to the effect of channel B, bypassing the equalizer of the second channel. This means you can use two delays, two choruses, two compressors, or other effects in sequence.
The parallel or sequential effects output then reaches the output section where you can add some saturation, adjust the stereo width and mix in a dry signal for which there is delay control.
This configuration offers many ways to get creative. For example, you can combine two delays or two rhythm gate effects with individual pan and gain settings. Or you can set up two compressors or two waveformers that affect different frequency ranges. Or you can route the output of one phaser or tremolo to another, which can create a wide variety of special effects.
