Creme RC
Remote Controllable Bus Compressor and Mastering Equalizer

End your inner battle between digital and analog.

Our Creme has become a modern classic - VCA compression in uncompromising sound quality, bundled with sound refinement at the highest level thanks to passive EQ based on the proven Pultec principle. The combination you've been looking for to add that decisive nuance to your mix or mastering.

With the Creme RC, we are taking this recipe for success to the next level, because it combines two worlds - analog sound and digital control - into a perfect symbiosis. analog sound and digital control - into a perfect symbiosis. Thanks to motorized potentiometers you save the annoying work of recalling your settings by hand, if you have to edit a session again afterwards. As soon as you open your project, the corresponding Creme RC plugin ensures that all knobs automatically turn to the correct position. Automate individual parameters in the arrangement? No problem with the Creme RC.

Many successful mixing engineers have one thing in common: they use our Creme!

Even while mixing, the Creme gives you an idea with a slight treble and bass boost and a few dB of compression, how the mix will sound after mastering. This way you can easily find the right volume balance for your individual sounds, especially the voices. The order of EQ and compressor is also switchable, making the Creme RC an always flexible helper in mixing and mastering.

The Compressor

Whether you just want to thicken your track gently and inaudibly, or pack a punch, maybe even give it a rhythmic punch, the Creme RC's VCA compressor can handle it all with ease.

Its powerful and characteristic sound can elevate any mix to a new level. The compression runs very musically and the sound always remains transparent, with the individual instruments more easily find their place in the mix. The often lamented loss of treble in compression applications does not occur here at all, rather the signal seems like treated with an exciter to sound a bit more brilliant.

The bass range is tight and seems as if from a single mold, the lower mids become fuller without mud, the entire midrange is more articulate and cleaner. The spatial imaging also gains air and precision.

The switchable side-chain high-pass filter ensures that, if necessary, even violent bass nothing to pump. In addition to the classic 60Hz and 120Hz filters, there is now an additional 200Hz filter in the side-chain.

Creme Mode

The Creme RC's compressor brings yet another new cherry on top. For even more kicking bass and fresher treble, we have used our experience from the Schwerkraftmaschine and designed the Creme mode together with some Berlin artists.

In addition to the classic auto mode, there is hereby an alternative to the intelligent release automatic. The Creme mode reacts a little faster and more aggressive and is thus perfectly suited to the requirements of modern music styles.

Pushes, thrusts and bangs!


The Equalizer

Passive equalizers with their elaborate circuits of coils and capacitors are still among the most popular sound makers when it comes to sum processing.

The filter circuit of the original Pultec already made our Classic Equalizer a successful sound machine. For this reason, we have also selected it as the basis for the EQ of the Creme RC and carefully revised this. Not necessary controls were replaced by fixed values, for the mix bus less useful frequencies were shut down.
.
No other EQ type manages to sound good in almost every setting. Smooth and silky highs worthy of the name. A low-frequency boost that gives the mix a tight foundation and thrust without squelching everything.

For even more adjustment options, the Creme RC has been greatly increased the intermediate steps of the selectable frequencies.

The result is an EQ that you should have heard. If you've heard it once, you'd regret its absence. If you've never heard it, you've always been looking for it anyway.

…The result was absolutely stunning. The mix we were already very happy with suddenly came to life and everything just ended up sounding glued together. To quote the producer and artist: “It’s like mixing to tape!”….

…And for all the heavy beat programmers and hip-hoppers out there, this box is going to blow you away! Put the Creme across the drum bus and those hits will jump right out of your monitors. The bottom end will sound super tight and ballsy, the high-end crisp and open and the compressor will make the whole section groove….

…So far, the Tegeler Audio Manufaktur Creme has proven to excel in most tasks I’ve given it….

…one of the best compressors I’ve heard in a long time…

…Only when switching to bypass mode can one see how much one has already become accustomed to the compressed signal and how comparatively unimpressive the original signal sounds in direct comparison…

…The stereo equalizer with a bus compressor in Pultec style impresses us with its high-end components, ease of use, and subtle hint of decadence…

…Even if the product was primarily designed for master processing, the Creme can still be used as a traditional stereo filter when recording…

…I wanted to double-check my ears and my art, so I asked a mastering studio in Berlin to master one of my titles.

After they were done, they told me that they used a Tube-Tech multi-band compressor, an Avalon EQs and the Waves BCLs, and I was pleased with the result (it sounded almost the same as the version that I had mastered).

But even at this point I was surprised how much more open my own master sounded for which I had used Creme and EQP1. I then asked the mastering engineer to add a little midrange, and I did the same with the EQP1 and compared again.

Of course, one version sounds different than the other, but it’s obvious how much more open, softer and fluffier your blue boxes sound.
I was really amazed and very happy as I feel re-affirmed to have made the right investment.…

…I have now properly tested the Creme and am really impressed by what it can do!

The compressor doesn’t tamper much with the sound in any situation.

Despite the heaviest level of compression, nothing is lost from the spectrum, unlike a few other plug-ins I know.

The EQ is also very impressive. Simply a very nice Pultec-style EQ that never sounds aggressive, no matter how far you push it.
VERY HARMONIC! …

…While the EQ is at least ‘officially’ a shelf EQ, it behaves almost like a bell EQ with a low-cut filter: Beautifully broad and soft.
This characteristic makes it possible to boost the bass frequencies without simultaneously squishing everything down into the subbass frequencies.

This means the higher frequencies also avoid sounding aggressive and irritating… The result is very pleasant and almost Cremey.

Definitely a better choice than buying 16 plug-ins at 99 euros each when you only actually need two. …

…You have created a really fantastic device in the form of the Creme. I had a lot of fun testing it.

The Creme blends the mix in a pleasant fashion, bringing out artefacts that you simply can’t pull out in a digital mixdown.

Even on a stereo electric guitar recording through two amps, the Creme brought the signal nicely forward it was possible to shape this a bit with the EQ …
