Camel is a 4-plugin suite encapsulating the sound of 2 iconic British pro audio brands that have earned their reputations as industry leaders thanks to their technological innovations and achievements.
An EQ at the Opera
Camel EQ Model A is derived from a vintage British EQ/pre module with balanced mic/line inputs featuring Lundahl balanced transformers; variable high/low pass filters; plus a 4-band parametric EQ. The high and low shelf filters can be switched to peak, and vice versa. Likewise, the 2 mid bands (low and high) have a switchable Q from narrow to broad, and vice versa.
Camel EQ Model B is based on a rare, discrete-component Class A console, introduced in 1973 by one of the most famous recording facilities in the UK, located in the Soho District of London, which shortly after launched itself as a pro audio manufacturing company. This specific console spent its early life in London, and played a critical role in the recording of legendary albums such as Queen’s A Night at the Opera and David Bowie's Diamond Dogs.
With the invaluable help of producer and sound engineer Antonio Aki Chindamo (co-founder of Auditoria Records recording studio in Italy), we managed to get our hands on this beauty. We carefully sampled its 16 line preamps, 16 mic preamps, the stereo output preamplifier of the console (which is included in the custom preamp module of the plugin), as well as the whole EQ module, including its high-pass filter.
