Gyratec G21: Magneto-Dynamic Infundibulum

Gyratec G21: Magneto-Dynamic Infundibulum

The G21 is kinda an elaboration on our G14 parallel-passive eq – the parallel topology enables multi-band control without running into the traditional problems in multi-banding.

G21 is as standard available as all mains voltages – it's entirely passive, and does not have a power connector

  • Warranty
  • All units are sold prepaid – If you wish, we can negotiate a two-week return/money-back option for customers that have no other way of trying out the units, like in countries that don’t have distributors yet. This would allow you to return the unit, all you need to pay is the shipping expenses both ways.According to the danish consumer rights you have two years of warranty. You can only complain about errors which were there when you recieved the product, or where the cause of the error was there at the delievery.
  • Shipping
  • All prices are excluding VAT (where that applies) and shipping and all prices are subject to change.Shipping charges pr. unit (ca. 10kg) is approximately DKK250 to Europe and USA and DKK550 to Australia. Please contact us for an exact freight quote

Description

Design

With a classic design the G21 will fit into every studio. The two handles make it easy to transport or move the product, and the material of the switches is a must feel experience.

Tech

As we all know, clipping generates harmonics – there’s simply no way around that. But what you do with those harmonics will make a lot of difference.

Why Passive?

In essence, we want complete control and predictability in the clipping process – and we want to preserve signal integrity as far as possible.

This is a great, unique, exciting box to work with… it’s just incredibly useful, and there’s no way it’s leaving my studio”Bob Macc

SKU: g21 Category: Use carefully - this is in no way a fire-and-forget gadget: Multiple types of interacting nonlinearities are at large, even a few in macroscopic time-domain because of components heating and temperature coefficients. Changing something in one band will sure as hell result in something else showing up somewhere else. Feels organic in that. Classic problem is that multi-banding gives inadequate results because of filter phase shift messing up recombining. We deal with this by NOT band-splitting, but in stead dealing with all frequencies in parallel fashion, only opening frequency-selective channels into the clipping circuitry. Byproduct of this is that spike/peak phase is altered first, only to be real-clipped if pushing the phase won't get the total signal below threshold. Kinda like an audio file hair-remover (work title of the G21 was "The AudioShaver") As we all know, clipping generates harmonics - there's simply no way around that. But what you do with those harmonics will make a lot of difference. The beauty is here, that as the clipping is done at the remote end of a frequency selective channel, the clipping byproducts (harmonics, at frequencies multiple times the clipped) have a hard time getting back out and into the audio, because they are now no more in the right frequency range.. And other than the three bands of clipping, we have an overall clipper that can be set for linear (white), pink -3dB/oct or red -5dB/oct emphasis - enabling gradually lower "threshold" at higher frequencies. Then there's a fine-trim for output level and a 18dB/oct lowcut at the input - mainly because most of our test pilots were mastering engineers In essence, we want complete control and predictability in the clipping process - and we want to preserve signal integrity as far as possible. In passive domain, we are more or less restricted to what could be described as 'first order' non-linearities - we do not convolute clipping on top of clipping (i.e. distortion on the distortion products) like it would most often happen in an active circuit under feedback control. It's hard enough to navigate the nonlinear processes already - we do not want to add unnecessarily to the mess.
