Aurora GT4-2

Got a email from Alan Dickson [[email protected]] today and this is what he said
Hi Rick, we are just getting into production with the first batch of GT4-2s
now. We will probably have them in about 30 to 45 days. They will be about
the same price as our GTQ2 or a little bit more.
thanks a million, Alan

should be great

Is that a 4 band EQ with filters? Hmmmm I'd trade my GTQ-2 MkiIII for that!

Hi

It's a line level EQ... no mic stage... but it has a lot of features like 3 Q's on the mids and two degrees of boost/cut on the high and low.

All class A and not a knock off of anything!

Man Geoff I can't wait 30-45 days.

I've been waiting for this piece from the day we talked at the AES in NY years ago and you informed me a 2 channel mic pre eq was in the works.

So you'll have to forgive me, I want it NOW.

LoL

Transformerless

Will there be a transformerless version?
During recording I will use it after the GTQ2
During bnc I will use it after the GTC2
Could be too much color in the end and this way we can safe some money?
Hope there is...
Thanks!

Will the transformerless GT4-8 have unbalanced I/O?

On 1/4´´jacks?

Hi

The 8 channel version is normally transformerless as it intefaces with the insertion point on our GTP8. It could be fitted with transformers and output stages but that would push the price up so much there would be little to save over the GTP8 option, and the GTP8 gives you up to 85dB mic gain and DI's on every channel. Rack height of both units is still 1U under a rack of 12" modules.

I don't really see doing an unbalanced version of the stereo version though because the level is down around -18dBu and not designed as an output stage.
It uses the same transformers and output stage as the GTC2.

There is no such thing as too much color. heh

But, in all seriousness... When tracking with the GTQC, I regularly go through two stages of GTQ transformers and amplifier cards (Because each unit inside is fully independent [preamp/ EQ and compressor]). I've never been less than thrilled with the additional color I get from going through both.

Thanks for the infos. But how can you use the EQs on line level signals during mix down?

Hi

The GTP8 has unity gain when the gain is set to 0dB and the +/-5dB trim set to center detent.

The stereo unit is set to unity gain.

Interesting! Never thought of doing that. Is the "middle" set of transformers bypassed when the internal routing is used?

Hi

No, it just connects the GTQ2 balanced ouput directly to the GTC compressor input. You can still use the uncompressed pre amp output at the same time.

Hi

Just back from a weekend break...

Yes, the mids are inductor based... I'm old fashioned like that. Highs and Lows are GTQ2 expanded.

Input and output transformers on the stereo unit.

Is there more info available on the eq section?
Is there a high pass? What frequencies involved? Is this closer to a Neve 1073 or 1084 in terms of eq choices, etc?
THANKS for any help with this.
Best,
AB
