i helped chris shelswell of DREAM CONFIG with the recapping of a TAC mixing console and the get-going of his control room. he played with our ten8tor prototypes early this year, and loved them. he spurred us on with some cash and now a new made one developed up to it’s eyeballs – sits proudly in his studio. and he was kind enough to write these words.
“I really have nothing but positive things to say about the ten8tor. It looks fantastic. Really nice big chunky knobs make it a pleasure to use. It feels like I imagine it would to operate an old russian submarine. Every day I pull the cover off it gives me a smile. Then there’s the sound, I swear simply plugging it in makes things sound better. There’s buckets of gain at the input and the 2 mid range knobs give you a massive degree of control. The high end is sweet and smooth. You can really “over do it” with out ending up with that horrible broken sound you get from lesser eq’s. There’s really a huge amount the ten8tor has to offer. With 4 bands and the high and low filters I wish I had one for every channel on my sound card.
I bought the luxury ten8tor as a mastering equalizer for it’s beautiful stereo sound and control but it’s very much become my main eq. I use it for everything from processing single tracks, overdubbing mono or stereo instruments to completely effecting the sound. The ten8tor is amazing for perfecting a sound subtly, or to powerfully change it.”
and just about was i to post his testimonial a few days later when he wrote again.
“Just did my first mastering job with the ten8tor – It was really a pleasure. It’s a beautiful eq to use and made an amazing job on the track. I couldn’t ask for a better eq :)”
