Shape your sound pre/post distortion with linear filters to alleviate phase issues when blending wet and dry signals. This EQ's unique vertical design allows you to work intuitively by establishing a direct connection between what you feel and see.

Group Console interface

Console remote

Group Console interface

Adding a little bit of distortion to every track is often more subtle and sounds more natural than adding distortion to a summing bus.
With Console Remote, you can control all Spicerack instances in your session from a single interface and dial in the right amount of distortion for a real analog feel.
