Purple3 User's manual:

Purple3 is a technical update of Purple2 giving you the highest number of different 'Purple-style' [pun intended] equalizers on the market - all in a single place - including some ultra-rare units we managed to source and sample for you. If you had to buy all of this in hardware it would cost you over €10.000! Now you can have all this at a fraction of the price without compromising on the sound.
What's new in this third version? All the plugins in the suite have been updated to our latest CORE 15 and we also included a new simple yet powerful filter plugin featuring a 12 dB/oct low-cut and high-cut filter, plus a preamp emulation derived directly from the Purple3 P-1.


The Purple3 suite is made up of:

-Purple3 P-1 (Vintage tube-based, passive program Equalizer)
-Purple3 P-AA (Tube-based passive program Equalizer reissue)
-Purple3 M-5 (Classic mid range tube EQ)
-Purple3 M-5V (Vintage classic mid range tube EQ)
-Purple3 H2 (Vintage single channel tube EQ )
NEW-Purple3 HLF (Passive 12dB/octave high/low pass filter)

Each plug-in included comes in a “Standard” version and an alternative “ZL*” version which operates at *zero latency and is thus suitable for use when tracking, at the cost of extra processing resources. For further details consult the user's manual in the Overview section.


A 'singing' filter

This simple yet powerful plugin completes the Purple3 'Passive' EQ suite by adding a 12 dB/oct low-cut and high-cut filter, plus a preamp emulation derived directly from the Purple3 P-1.

Despite its simple operation, this is an ideal tool for tonal sculpting or achieving special effects. Thanks to carefully selected frequencies, you can easily create effects like telephone voices, sounds from 'outer space,' and more by merely fiddling with a couple of knobs.

If you need to remove hum and rumble as well as hiss and distortion with minimum loss of content, this filter plugin is going to give you the most musical results possible.


Purple3 features our latest core engine technology which now includes EHR™ - Enhanced Harmonic Response Technology, and Dynamic Routing™!
