Plugin Boutique’s Jerry Mateo checks out GOLIATH by Tone Empire in this synth processing tutorial.
In this video Jerry offers an overview of the Goliath channel strip and showcases the powerful tone shaping possibilities on synth tracks.
Tri-Colour – Saturation / Dynamics / EQ
Transformer, Tube & Tape Saturation with Envelope Follower & Analog Modelled EQ
The signal path of analog audio running through solid state, tube and tape gear yields what we call a “Dimensional Analog Sound”. Besides the saturation that occurs in the analog world, the sounds also get naturally “compressed” and bumped or reduced in certain frequencies. Hence in order to accurately model analog outboard, we modelled and provide on this plugin, the ability to choose type of saturation, an envelope shaper and an analog modelled equalizer. This makes Goliath a true “Analog Mojo Box”
Choose from Solid State (Silver), Tube (Gold) & Tape (Titanium) saturation with the Tone selector. Silver brings a clean style saturation, with Gold you get more grit and edge, and Titanium brings the tape harmonics and punchy saturation to your audio. You can go from very subtle sounding to edgy. Increase apparent loudness without raising peak levels, and make your sounds cut through in a mix, or add a nice warm glow. These 3 very distinct flavours give you plenty of tone control additionally with the “Input/Drive” control and the “Roof” control. Easy to dial in the sweet spot and details you want.
Envelope + EQ
The Envelope and EQ become the final but invaluable piece of tone shaping tools. Looking for aggressive drums with punchy sustained sound? Or hard edged “attacky” vocals? This section lets you mould the sound shape you desire using the “Motion” control going from “splat” to “sharp”. Thin out pianos, strings & guitars with presence and air, or thicken up synths, bass guitar, kick drums etc. Detailed tweaking allowed on this one to dial in the sweet spots. Blend in this processing with your dry sounds using the wet/dry mix control.
