A secret weapon from the 60s
Abbey Road Studios Brilliance Pack modeled by Softube, the RS127 Rack, RS127 Box, and RS135 deliver the sweetest treble equalization imaginable – the sound of real passive analog circuitry in all its glory.
With the Brilliance Pack, today’s DAW-based mix engineers can add all the air and sparkle they want, without the slightest trace of harshness – just like the world’s top engineers at Abbey Road Studios, London, have done on their recordings from the 1960s onwards.

- The grey RS127 Rack is the original Abbey Road Studios treble equalizer. It offers a boost or cut of up to 10 dB at 2.1, 3.5, or 10 kHz (or kilocycles per second as they used to be known). Indispensable for balancing cymbals, or bringing aggression to a lead guitar, especially heading into the beefy glue of tape.
- When more units were needed in the studio, the portable green RS127 Box was built. The same circuit was used as in the original RS127, but with the addition of an audio transformer. The engineers quickly discovered that the transformer dramatically altered the sound character and the operating frequencies of the RS127. The frequencies got shifted a bit higher, which of course also holds true for the plug-in model.
- Lastly, the RS135 was created to fill in the frequency gap that the RS127 units left out. It’s fixed at 8 kHz, offers boost only and is just as sweet and silky as its siblings. Its broad curve is super-musical, and placed just right for adding air and shine to vocals, drums, or percussion, without overaccentuating edgy fundamentals. You can even use it to subtly lift a master; to go from great to magnificent.
