Description

The Black EQ features switched frequency, "Enhanced Slope" HF and LF shelving controls. A switched frequency (1.5kHz/3kHz) Presence/Absence band and a sweep frequency Lo Mid band. The Lo Mid and Presence/Absence bands can be switched between reciprocal and Constant Q modes to allow either wide band equalisation or wide band boost with narrow band cut (notching) characteristics. The Overtone function adds an LF band specific harmonic colouration to the signal path, adding definition to the low frequencies whilst letting the high-end frequencies pass through uncoloured and pure. The Glo function adds a side chain compression path to the LF band to dynamically "tighten" or "thicken" the bass content. The 3 position Tilt® switch provides a subtle change to the tonal balance by gently sloping the overall frequency response. The effect on the tonal balance is to "lighten" or "darken" an otherwise well equalised balance.

  • Discrete Class A circuitry 4 band EQ
  • Transformer balanced input
  • “Enhanced Slope” HF / LF shelving, Hi Mid Presence/Absence, sweep Lo Mid
  • “Overtone” - LF band specific harmonic enhancement
  • “Glo” - LF band specific dynamic equalisation
  • “Tilt” ® - shifts overall tonal balance around 1kHz

...track, N14 G. Buss Clean on busses and R2R Otari 15ips/N14 Mic or Line pres on individual tracks. Brown or Black EQ for specific stuff (I can move around a lot with these two because their frequencies are interpolated and that interpolation actually sounds good... That's rare on Nebula), the 550A/550B/Q8/PTeQ/SilkEQ/Gyrator for some other...

Ehhhhhh... thanks for the list. Cream and Lime is pretty much my bread and butter. And after demoing heavily last night, Charly as well. Thanks RJ, you've reminded again on the power (necessity?) of bouncing with Acqua... I wouldn't/shouldn't run an HQ during mixing anyway A final, stereo master 'polish' would still be in the cards...
