LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – DECEMBER 2009: Tonelux rack-mounted gear, which is exclusively distributed worldwide by TransAudio Group, will introduce its new TILT eight-channel tone control at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California in January 2010. The innovative TILT control, designed by Tonelux founder Paul Wolff, rebalances a channel’s high- and low-frequency content via a single knob, and was first featured on the company’s MP1a discrete mic preamp module.

Centered on approximately 700 Hz, the TILT control knob boosts high frequencies from 0 dB to 6 dB while simultaneously cutting low frequencies by the same amount when turned fully to the right. When turned to the left, low frequencies are boosted by up to 6 dB while high frequencies are similarly cut. This allows a user to conveniently alter the EQ of a track to better fit into the mix using a single rotary control.

The TILT effectively alters everything from bass guitars to cymbals, and is perfect for vocals, warming up or cooling off tracks, and as the final stage in a live personal monitoring system when the overall mix needs to be changed slightly to compensate for ear fatigue.

Introduced as a standalone, multi-channel unit at the request of Tonelux customers following their experiences with the single-channel MP1a module, each of the TILT’s eight channels features a rotary TILT control knob with associated in/out and polarity reverse switches, plus separate LED indication of signal presence and clipping. Inputs and outputs for channels one and two are accessed via XLR connectors, with a D-Sub multi-pin connector offering I/O access for all eight channels.

The new Tonelux TILT eight-channel tone control unit is intended as the first of a new range from the company. It is planned that line will also include a dual channel microphone preamplifier and a dual compressor, as well as a channel strip. Each of the models in the new range will be standardized on the robust steel chassis and single RU form factor of the TILT, which incorporates an internal power supply.

Noted Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, “Paul Wolff understands what recording engineers want and then has the smarts to engineer the gear to fit the need. I can’t think of anyone else in the industry who can grasp and deliver the way Paul can. This is a standout product for Tonelux.”
