Tim from Buzz was saying in another thread around 4K US for the non mastering (no detented pots) and 7 for the mastering version.
I am very fond of the GML. I don't have one now, but we did at the studio I started at. I loved the colour of the nobs too.
Cheers

I believe Tim was shooting for $4,000 USD for the non mastering version, for the mastering I'm not sure...we'll have Tim swing by and comment. Might be safer to wait until just before release later this year.

I thought it was $4000 and $4700 ... only 8 switches added, shouldn't be $3000 !

First let me apologisze to those who have been waiting to audition the REQ2.2. It is coming, we just need to be able to afford the production run - it's a pretty expensive thing to produce and we don't cut corners.

The street price should be around the US$4500 mark for non detented boost/cut and another $500-600 for the detented version.

Cheers
Tim.

We do a Mastering Eq, the Maselec MEA-2 however it is over your budget but very much worth considering if it is mastering style tweaks that you are after.

Sometimes it is better to get everything to work together as a whole and then fine tune the whole thing with EQ, as opposed to trying to dig it out of every individual sound. Sometimes hitting the stereo buss hard to get a desired effect rounds off the top end too much, so adding an EQ to brighten it up makes sense. Sometimes it just SOUNDS better when you add or remove a touch of something at the very end.

It's only wrong when it doesn't sound good in the end.

I always thought that was the job of the mastering engineer. Maybe some of you folks could bring in a chart showing what EQ was applied so if the mastering guy wants to undo it, he knows were to apply reverse EQ? Or better yet, bring in a mix with and without that EQ so the mastering guy has something to choose from?

Perhaps suggested EQ listening curves could be supplied in the album notes so the end listener could fine tune the the whole thing?
When did the fashion of buss mix EQ begin? I don't remember anyone doing this 25 years ago. Is it to compensate for low cost recording gear or the losses running through it?

It's to make it sound good, as Paterno was saying. The job of the mastering engineer is to take what the mixer thinks sounds good and make it better. I have an EQ on the mix buss on the 8078 that I'm mixing on, from 48 tracks of tape, with great gear. It sounds better IMHO to add a bit of top end to everything that was going to brightened anyway. sometimes it doesn't work, but more often than not, it does for me...

Cheers,

Ryan Hewitt
