Gold 5 is a plugin suite that is the ultimate choice for anyone looking to incorporate the legendary sound of vintage British consoles into their workflow. Gold includes 9 different equalizers, 2 extremely rare compressors, and 7 preamplifiers improved with our Hyper 2 technology. — which means you get a total of 52 preamplifiers inside the Gold5Pre standalone version of our plugin. It sounds almost too good to be true, right?

Analog Dreamware Anthology

Very few pieces of audio equipment have achieved the iconic status such as the ones that we sampled to create Gold. It is the most extensive, versatile plugin suite of its kind available today.

We traveled to Tambourine Studios in Malmö, Sweden, and sampled their incredible console from top to bottom. Formerly owned by Swedish super producer Tore Johansson (A-ha, Tom Jones, Anouk, Melanie C), this impressive piece of equipment was used to record all of the Cardigans' classic albums.

A New EQ Joins the Gold Family

 Gold 5 now includes an additional, uber-rare EQ built in the 1970s: the 8115. It’s a 3-band, semi-parametric equalizer with a high pass filter. The original unit is a vintage, class A/B mic pre-EQ with the same design, topology, and components as its illustrious big brother, the mighty 3081.

These modules used to be standard in small broadcast consoles, but the version we sampled was an unusual piece of equipment with a more modern concept in its design. This one is a stereo unit in immaculate condition, which we converted to mono from the fourth version of Gold. Due to its unique properties, it was extremely difficult to source, but in the end it was worth every minute we spent!
Color Your Mix However You Choose

The Gold 5 EQ is composed of two sections (HF/HMF and LMF/ LF), each one with a variety of different selectable equalizer units. With so many EQ combinations to choose from, you’ll always be able find the perfect match for the tracks you’re mixing.

Gold Compressor

 Gold is equipped with 2 different compressors, the 8252 and 8254.

The 8252 compressor/limiter was the first unit equipped with germanium transistors running on a -24v power supply, and it was the predecessor to the 8254.

The original hardware in the 8254 is a classic compressor, built around a diode-bridge cell. It was created in 1969, and its effect is often described as “smooth” and “creamy.

Gold Pre

Gold 5 preamp plug-in includes several emulations derived from vintage and rare units. This section emulates their corresponding circuits' frequency/phase response and harmonic distortion.
