Cop Shop Features
FOCUS: Intuitive filter that focuses the energy in a source on the bass or treble ranges of the sound. Apparent loudness of source is maintained constant for meaningful A/B comparisons. SHIFT switch decreases turnover frequency for a different midrange response.
LO-CUT: 12 dB/oct filter that rolls off low frequencies, variable 20 to 530 Hz. Jumper selectable 'Lo-Rider' mode transforms LO-CUT section into a low-frequency hi-cut section with variable resonance (hint: try this on a front of kick or Subkick mic and blend back in for incredibly deep and massive low end).
BUMP: Variable resonance control for LO-CUT that adds a resonant 'bump' at the corner frequency. Response from Bessel (full CCW), to Butterworth (12 noon), to slightly resonant (0.5 dB full CW). MORE switch increases resonance dramatically... sometimes MORE is more.
HI-CUT: 6 dB/oct filter that rolls off high frequencies, variable 500 Hz to 25 kHz. 0.5X switch shifts frequency range one octave lower, while simultaneously increasing slope to 12 dB/oct and adding slight resonance at corner frequency to retain apparent brightness (defeatable by a jumper on PCB).

Patrick Rene Wins Louder Than Liftoff Chop Shop Silver Face
In the Pro Tools Expert 2017 Christmas Competition, we offered the chance to win one of 31 great prizes worth over $16,000 in total. Patrick Rene is the winner of the Louder Than Liftoff Chop Shop Silver Face.
"My name is Patrick better known to the audio world as K. Trakz or Trakz for short. I’m an aspiring recording and mixing engineer hoping to be a go-to for my generation of music makers.
I got into making music by witnessing someone making a decision which wasn’t beneficial to their recording and after giving my input they didn’t oblige. So I went home and convinced my parents to emulate the setup and well this is how Trakz came too be lol.
I’ve been under the tutorage of many great musicians and producers since 15. Right now I’m working with indie artist across the world that have the sound but up the quality of their records.
As a Haiti Quake survivor of 2010 I felt that it was only right that I take the time out and help others in their quest of seeking a musical career.
The Silver Bullet is not just an asset but an extension of me personally to provide a color pallet to create the audio vision that I’ve been accustomed too listening to my favorite albums of yesteryear. It’s no doubt in mind that Silver Bullet will be used in so many ways within my production tool whether it’s tracking, mixing, or just auditory work.
It will also be a learning experience for myself because this is something I wouldn’t have access too but now I can fuse this into my workflow and learn the sonic characters of the units it is modeling."
