Hi All,

I am working on a 8100 XT2 preset for a long time. After reading the manual, getting details watching videos etc. I created a preset. This preset I can share with you on request.

What I did after creating that preset is extending it with some great modern day technology. This preset has the 8100 XT2 preset as a base (two band compressor + 6 band limiting and some special 8100 XT2 things for bass and brilliance) but has the following added features:

-Declipper
-Matrix AGC
-Bass Clipper

Let me know what you think, and what you think can be improved or changed. My target music was disco from the late 70s/early 80s. But todays music should work as well.

(Requires latest ST version that includes the Matrix AGC)

Nice preset! Even though i dont own an 8100+XT2, the preset sounds good. I like the way the settings mostly match the 8100's internal processing chain unlike other presets which claim it sounds like optimods but the settings and the sound quality are far away from optimods.

for the absolute highs, i would tune the bandwidth from 32 to 130-270 or so and the slope up to 6200HZ and the max generation to 10000hz-12000hz. for me it sound better that way.
To simulate the sound of the phase rotator found in the optimods (or sort of) i will provide a preset only containing the phase rotator/delay settings.
For the multiband limiter, tune all the DB/oct scales to 12DB /oct. the graph might look ugly but it improves the audio quality alot.

looking foward to your feedback.

I have no idea how close this comes to sounding like an actual 8100 unit. I do know, however, that the preset sounds great to me. I never thought I'd do it, but I registered the licensed version so that I can use this preset as is. Thank you for sharing it.

Agree. One thing unique with fully analog audio equipment is that the colour of the audio is very difficult to replicate digitaly. one can attempt but even if they own one, analog will always sound special. the near zero latency is another nice feature with analog processors as well.

im in the process of attempting to make presets based on various makes of OPTIMOD analog processors such as the optimod 8000, 8100, 8182, 9100 etc. still alot of work required but once finished, ill probaly release them in the future. i did make one preset which is advalable to download, it replicates the classical preset used in the OPTIMOD 5500.

Thank you for sharing your phase rotation settings, I am going to try them :-)

ive read the manual of the 8100 and the XT2 and ill provide some further changes. the 8100 itself features the phase rotation, bass and master compression, hf limiting and the clipper. once the XT2 is connected, as stated in the XT2 manual, the compressor of the 8100 turns into sort of an AGC and the audio is fed to the 6 band limiter, then fed back to the 8100 to the clipper. i found out the attack and release time of these limiters are diffrent compared S.T and ill provide some changes.

ive made changes to the phase rotator, limiter and the absolute highs settings. ive finaly got the phase rotator to sound like an optimod

ill upload the whole preset with the changes. i want feedback as this is my first attempt at modding this preset to have the same audio chain as the 8100+Xt2
