Product Description

For decades, the concept of pop music was synonymous with Trident® Studios, the pioneering facility in the heart of London’s Soho district.

Their client list reads like a who’s who of pop: The Beatles, Elton John, David Bowie, the Bee Gees, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Joe Cocker, Kiss, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Marc Almond, Soft Cell, Queen, the Rolling Stones, Thin Lizzy, Tina Turner, T-Rex, and Yes.

At the heart of the studio’s sound was the Trident® A Range® console. It became so well known for its gorgeous, musical EQ and the full, rich tone it imparted soon, studios around the world were placing orders for an A Range® of their own. Although only 13 were ever made, they created a legacy that continues to this day.

Now, thanks to Arturia’s groundbreaking True Analog Emulation® technology, you too can experience the incredible sound-shaping power of the legendary Trident® A Range® preamp and EQ.


Cracking the code

The channel strips found in the Trident® A Range® consoles are considered to be gold dust, available only to the finest producers and engineers at the peak of their careers.

We have built our reputation by recreating history’s best, most coveted keyboards and synths as software instruments. What better way to carry on this legacy than by bringing the most sought-after studio hardware right to your DAW? Although it would have been quite simple to just create a plugin that sounded similar to the famous Trident® A Range® channel strip, we didn’t want to give you an approximation of the sound. We wanted to create a virtual replica of the hardware so you could enjoy all the subtle nuances that made the original the go-to choice for the biggest producers and engineers of the last 50 years.

Finding a Trident® A Range® console was no simple feat - only 13 were ever created, after all - and our search led us to Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen, and to Sweet Silence North. The musical residence of Grammy award-winning producer Flemming Rasmussen, whose critically acclaimed work with metal acts like Metallica, Morbid Angel, Blind Guardian, and Ensiferum hinged on the use of his Trident® A Range® console. To create Pre TridA, we analyzed channel 3 of his 1976 mixing console, creating a sophisticated model, right down to the level of individual components.

Through the passion and skill of our developers, we are able to bring you the elusive ‘secret ingredient’ behind so many incredible hits as a software plugin. It’s official: we are living in the future.


The ultimate sound-shaper

Pre TridA gives you all the power and features of the fabled Trident® A Range®, and more! Let’s take a look at how this elite channel strip translates as a plugin.

4 band, twin-channel equalizer

The fantastically musical A Range® EQ has been recreated in all its glory. The high, high-mid, low-mid, and low EQ bands have 4 switchable frequencies, calibrated to match the original unit’s specification. These can be cut or boosted by 15dB independently on the left and right channels, or linked together. This gives you great freedom to shape your sound in a stereo space.

Low Pass Filter

Notch out the high end at 9kHz, 12kHz, 15kHz, or hit 2 or 3 switches to make more dramatic chance, this will soften the high frequencies of your signal.


Input Gain

From super-subtle overtones to growling solid-state drive, the Input Gain knob can be pushed to add whatever tonal flavor you desire.


High Pass Filter

Carve out the super-low frequencies from your signal, with cuts placed at 25Hz, 50Hz, and 100Hz. Like the Low Pass, you can also combine 2 or 3 switches for a stronger effect.

Mid/Side mode

Missing on the original A Range®, Pre TridA lets you use advanced mid/side techniques without external processing or convertors, meaning your audio will sound amazing in both mono and stereo.

Output Trim

Simple, but always useful. The output trim lets you adjust the “master volume” of the output without changing its tone.

It’s fair to say that since the original unit was built, the music industry has seen some changes. To bring this legend up to date, we’ve also included some optional enhancements to make the most of your DAW.

  • EQ bypass Pretty self-explanatory, this simple switch activates or deactivates the EQ section of Pre TridA on one or both channels.
  • Automatic Gain control As you raise the gain, the output level is automatically adjusted, giving you a consistent, reliable perceived audio level. Now you can be sure that the changes you make sound great because they improve the tone, not just because it makes everything louder.
  • Phase Inversion A handy little utility that flips the polarity of one or both channels, great for correcting phasing issues or giving you voicing options.
  • Stereo Link Link both channels so that any any changes to the EQ or gain structure affect both channels at once. Disabled, you can make discrete changes to each channel.

Pre TridA also features a gorgeous GUI. This attention to detail even extends to classic post-gain VU meters, which can be calibrated to your taste, and light up when the signal is peaking at -1dBFS.

Hear it for yourself

We can write about our revolutionary Pre TridA and the glorious original Trident® channel strip until the cows come home, but we think you’ll be more convinced by hearing it in action.

Having a world-class preamp emulation and EQ may seem like a small, almost insignificant addition to your software studio, but knowing that you’re honing the sound of your audio channels with a time-tested signal path will give you confidence, and make mixing easier than ever. Here are some audio examples, letting you hear the subtle, and not so subtle tonal changes that Pre TridA can make to audio signals. To best appreciate these examples, we would recommend that you use high quality headphones or studio monitors when listening.
