DIYRE Colour palette
« on: August 13, 2016, 01:18:23 PM »
I'm considering purchasing 1 or 2 Colour palette kits.  But the amount of available colours is pretty overwhelming, to say the least, hahaha.

So, I'm thinking- where better to ask for opinions about the Colour palette, and its different colours than here ?

Any users here ?
Is the colour Palette something you use intensily, or is it just a fun object that you use occasionally ?  Which colors do you recommend ?

And also a question about one colourplugin specifically : The DOA plugin : Does it represent the colour of the used DOA ? In other words, if I purchase 4 of these colours and throw 4 different DOA's, will it accurately show the sound differences of the DOA's ?

I have a Colour Palette as well as two CP5 preamps.
Stuffed with 15IPS, Multi Stage Saturation and JFET distortion. On the preamps I have my own design of colour which basically is a HPF around 80Hz + EQ dip around 400Hz +  subtle distorion from two cheap triad transformers driven by an opamp.

The palette is more of a fun tool to me, all distortion plugins sound quite similar in my ears...

I guess you can A/B your DOAs with the DOA plugin since the rest of the audio path stays the same.

The CP-5 is surely also interesting.

So, basically, you made a plugin that suits more to  what you like to hear ? Cool.

Okay, great, then that might be a very suitable way to let potential costumers hear the differences between the DOAs.

This was kinda what I expected....  But you do use it in a mix occasionally ?

I'm curious how well the other plugins are....
More opinions ? Please share !

I have 8 Colour modules and use them on every mix.

CTX, TM79, JFT and Pentode.

I don't drive them hard and take good care on gainstaging as they are inserted just after DA conversion
