Apogee is very proud to announce a brand new plugin to add to the Apogee FX software line: Clearmountain´s Domain™ – Where Your Mix Lives™! Apogee is introducing Clearmountain’s Domain, a multi-effects plugin that reproduces legendary mixer, Bob Clearmountain’s personalized FX signal chain.
For decades, engineers, producers, and musicians have marveled at Bob Clearmountain’s mixes. Recordings by iconic artists like David Bowie, Chic, Roxy Music, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, INXS, and so many more are prime examples of how Clearmountain’s work elevated the role of “the mixer” to that of an essential creative partner in the process of making records. Clearmountain’s ability to build a soundscape and atmosphere, where voices and instruments effortlessly live in an intimate space but seamlessly blend together, set new standards for mixing. His passion to reveal the true character of the song, highlighting the emotion of the music, gets to the heart of what inspired the song from its inception.
While this is a craft honed over a career of many experiences, accomplishments and hit records, there are secrets that can be shared and Clearmountain’s Domain™ offers one of Bob’s most refined and important techniques in a simple, streamlined plugin.
The plugin simplifies Clearmountain’s very sophisticated and creative hardware routing, making it easier to emulate the cohesive spaces, expansive dimensions, and rich atmospheres his most celebrated mixes are known for.
Classic presets allow you to recreate the sonic environment of your favorite Clearmountain mixes. Advanced view tabs take you behind the scenes of Clearmountain’s technique to reveal decades of expertise and empower you to create your own musical mix domain. Custom impulse responses of Clearmountain’s favorite spaces give you access to the reverb Bob has used on countless hit records. And, the multi-color FX Visualizer lets you see the placement of all effects in real-time.
