Antelope emulates the classics

Blonder Tongue Audio Baton can correct frequency response errors, such as excessive bass or shrill high-end

Blonder Tongue Audio Baton and Filtek Mk3 are two new hardware-based software effects from Antelope Audio that emulate EQ classics and are capable of running in real time using the manufacturer’s Discrete 4 Synergy Core, Discrete 8 Synergy Core, Orion Studio Synergy Core and Zen Tour Synergy Core audio interfaces, and the Edge Go bus-powered modelling microphone.

The original Audio Baton boasts seven separate amplifiers tuned to distinct frequencies, followed by high- and low-pass filters running in parallel with their outputs routed to separate level controls. Choices for frequencies correspond to actual notes and octaves on a piano keyboard. Those markers move up and down the white vertical stripes when turning the associated rotary controls to assist with visualising boosts and cuts over nine frequency bands with a 28dB control range per band. The resultant frequency response curve is graphically overlaid on top of four horizontal stripes where each frequency region is distinctly coloured. By adding a Magic Eye peak meter, Blonder Tongue Audio Baton can correct frequency response errors, such as excessive bass or shrill high-end, and reportedly improve the clarity of instruments, vocals and speech.

The Filtek MK3 is a three-band equaliser with modelled, transformer-based input and output sections that work in real time with zero latency. Its switch and knob combinations are said to encourage experimentation – extreme settings at broad bandwidths turn the high and low bands into respectable shelving filters, for example. Users can boost the high-end without introducing harshness, while a unique signal path allows for parallel equalisation by mixing the boosted/attenuated signal with unprocessed audio. The three-band design has been modelled with high- and low-pass filters, while each band offers a choice of 12 frequencies with boosts and cuts of up to 16dB. The three-way bandwidth (Q) switches for each band allow for bypassing specific bands when in mid-position.
