ive been working for a very long time (almost 2 years) in making a preset that simulates an FM classical station i listen to alot. ive read manuals of many diffrent brands of OPTIMOID processors, specificaly the 8500 which is typicaly used for classical stations and tried as best i can to replicate it.

My preset starts out at the auto EQ, to treat frequencys above 4000hz acting as the H.F enhancer found in OPTIMODS, although a very small amount is used, dual band AGC, multiband 1 as a 5 band compressor, multiband 2 as a multiband limiter and finaly the advandced clipper.

ive read the 5500, 8500's manual carefully and copied alot of the audio levels, timings, frequencys and crossover of the multibands and i did alot, i mean ALOT of exprementation to try to adjust the audio levels to replicate the audio quality of the station. ive used whatever i can in S.T to replicate the effect but still, better than nothing and certainly better than 90% of other presets i tried.

i use this preset not only for classical but also for talk, TV and general use. i am open for feedback, so feel free for opinions and improvements

download the latest version as i always make improvements

WOW this sounds very good. i listen to australia's ABC CLASSIC, they use an OPTIMOD 8500 and this preset is so close! very good indeed.

Interest in an HD/Streaming version? I would like to try it, if so.

here is the preset for HD/streaming. ive folowed the optimod 8500, 8600's manual and used a final limiter and less clipping, as audio is better off for streaming pourposes because of compression and low bitrates, as clipping can waste bandwidth when it comes to streaming audio. i also changed the multiband limiter to not limit high frequencys for FM.

hope you like the preset.

Not bad at all ali6359.

I've only just had a quick listen here as very limited on time currently and yes, I am impressed. Pushing around 7.7dB of FM MPX power and around -7dB LkFS on top 40, its LOUD !

I'm glad to see others also experimenting with the classic sounds of the Optimod. What is clear is Stereo Tool is going to take the classic sound to a new high...

Please continue to tune and may I suggest that you listen to the sound in as many environments as possible. You have worked on MB2 which I've not yet had a chance to tune & play, albeit I have had time to think about this whilst listening when away from a computer. Continue to work your profile as your definitely onto the right track. The AGC as I believe requires that some improvement that could be made here that may require a code change. In particular, been able to stay backed off under certain scenarios. To do this will require a process that will need to be resolved to an algorithm, which I would request that you PM Hans & the team directly.

Good luck!

FILE HAS ISSUES UPLOADING. TRYING TO FIX IT. for some reason, my V4.2 preset jumped from 150ish or so KB to almost 360KB. why did that happen? can someone increase the upload limit?
Maybe you had saved "Dehummer" settings in your preset
