Good For Certain Things
For the record, I had never soldered before I bought my first Sound Skulptor kit (CP5176). Also, I am not a trained recording engineer. This is the only Sound Skulptor I would give a 4 (out of 6 I own). What I've noticed after using this for a little over a year is that it can be a bit harsh. I use it more for HF/LF cut, and gentle tuning in the inner frequencies. I run it "inside" of my MP573 (which I love!), and occassionally in series when I am not getting the results I'm looking for. The build is a little tricky getting the pots and set up straight, but I had a lot of fun learning how this parametric structure works.
Perfect! The classic Neve EQ and very musical
This EQ needs a lot of patience and concentration while building it, but it is absolutely worth the effort. It’s the perfect supplement for the MP573 preamp. I use it in my studio for tracking on every single track. It’s so musical that you rarely need any other EQs with more bands. If the sound is allowed to get coloured in a nice way you can even use it for mastering – I did this and achieved great results in no time (faster than with a Pultec). It’s great that the EQ573 combines the 1073 and 1084 models: You have a bandwidth switch for the mid frequencies and more frequencies available for the high shelf. It’s worth looking at the frequency response while using it (with Waves Q-Clone for instance) – you begin to understand why you don’t need more EQ bands for a perfect sound ;-)
I disagree with the other reviewer here: I don’t find it harsh at all (if you use it "correctly"). But as always, you should also consider using it for cutting the frequencies you don’t need and not only for boosting. With a reasonable combination you have a high class musical sound and lots of possibilities.
my 2nd DIY-Module
This Module was my 2nd DIY build. After I learnd my lesson on my 1st build, what it means to organise all parts befor you start, It was a joy to build this EQ.
And in the end, the most important thing is, this module rocks!!! Compared to my UAD 1073 EQ the EQ curves are very similar and the sonic characteristics are very close, but through the hardware unit, the signal has more body, is more 3 dimensional. I really love this peace of gear. Next thing is building the MP573 an run the EQ through it...Thank you Jean-Pierre for these beautiful kits.
