  • Product Description

    The Trident A-Range is a legendary piece of equipment. As only thirteen A-Range consoles were ever made, it remains a holy grail for sound engineers and producers around the world that hope to create works of art equal to those that were originally recorded on the A-Range — David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, Queen, Elton John, the list goes on...

    The Softube Trident A-Range plug-in is the first and only native and TDM plug-in that has been fully endorsed by original designer Malcolm Toft and Trident Audio.

    The plug-in is a model of a channel on one of the original 13 Trident A-Range consoles. We chose to model channel 15 from the console at Sweet Silence Studio 'B' in Denmark, producer Flemming Rasmussen's favorite channel for recording lead vocals. Flemming also used it for the solo and rhythm guitars on Metallica's "Ride The Lightning" and "Master of Puppets", and Ritchie Blackmore's guitar on the Rainbow albums "Difficult to Cure" and "Bent out of Shape".

    The A-Range channel features four bands of equalization and high and low pass filters. The sound of the bands is often referred to as "colorful" and "musical". When running a hot enough signal through the original unit and boosting the bands, it is possible to get it to distort, the result is a hairy and effective saturation that is just right in some situations, and just wrong in others!

    In Short
    • Created together with original designer Malcolm Toft
    • Each and every component carefully modeled
    • Same sweet sounding EQ filters that made the original legendary
    • Interaction between the different bands, making this equalizer one of its kind
    • Saturation control
    • Very CPU friendly
    Controls

    Authentic User Interface
    An authentic aubergine color (well, as good as it gets on a computer screen...) and the exact same controls as the real thing (okay, we added the Saturation and the Output volume). And then we removed a couple of controls that weren't relevant for computer recording. All right, we changed a few things — but it still looks good!

    Saturation
    The distortion of the original desks is of course captured by the plug-in. Instead of using an input volume to drive the signal, we chose to use a Saturation knob instead — so that you don't have to compensate the Output volume all the time.

    Just set the Saturation to OFF if you don't need it, which will also make the native version more CPU efficient.

    Low and High Pass filters
    The ultimate problem solver. Make sure to use these a lot. If you need even more filtering, just press multiple buttons.

    Developed by Softube and Trident
    The Trident A-Range plug-in was developed by Softube in co-operation with Malcolm Toft and Trident.

    "I am pleased to say that this is an incredibly accurate software recreation of my original A-Range design."

    Original designer of the A-Range console at Trident Audio Developments
