Dangerous Music introduces the Dangerous Liaison 08/09/11
Dangerous Music is now shipping the Dangerous Liaison which they say increases studio flexibility by providing unprecedented access to your outboard equipment by
allowing you to connect up to six of your favourite units to the Liaison (more if you daisy chain, leverage a patchbay or add a Dangerous Master).
You can change the order, dial in some parallel processing and then store
these customized signal paths as presets to use again, on demand,
anytime. True hard-wire bypass relays remove the gear entirely
from the signal path, including outboard that lacks an integrated
bypass or true hard-wire bypass. Dangerous Music tell us that mastering grade components
switch instantly and silently, providing true A/B comparisons
without coloration or latency and that pre- and post-processing monitor
outputs make it simple to audition between the original source and
the treated product.
The A and B busses can be utilized as completely discrete paths
or they may be linked together in a series. For example, if your
favourite BAX EQ is connected to loop#1 and a limiter is connected
to loop#5, selecting 5 from Buss A and 1 from Buss B places the
limiter before the EQ.
Parallel Processing allows the original and effected signals to be
blended independently. For example, says Dangerous Music, you can crush the drums with heavy compression for tight, explosive impact, while mixing in the original
to retain transients and dynamics. Features
