I can't tell from the photo and will send them an email now.

With 20 steps to 15db (that's a lot!) I'd like to see something like this ....

1/3
2/3
1
1.5
2
2.5
3
3.5
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15

The Blue 315 has 1/3, 2/3 and they're so handy, essential even.

Thanks & all the best,

It appears that these two functions allow for quite fine gain adjustments.

Hi guys,

we're still in the process of fine-tuning... but we're getting very close now, and the actual values are:

0.00
0.25
0.50
0.75
1.00
1.25
2.50
3.50
4.00
4.75
5.50
6.25
7.00
7.75
8.00
8.75
9.50
10.50
11.50
12.00
13.00
14.00
15.00

Because we feel that this is a very nice range going from subtle to obvious results, we have decided to skip the "fine gain range" in favor of another very nice feature to be announced very soon.

Concerning timing, the final version will be presented at the Musikmesse in April and then we will ship the first series a few weeks later.

All the best,
Dominik

Did you come to this range by listening? Looks a little odd on paper but by listening you may be onto something!

What makes it look odd are the "in between values" that I have just estimated. Like said before, we are still fine-tunig, so the final values might be a little bit different, but should be close to the ones stated above.

The real measured values are ususally not flat .25, .50 or .75 values as stated above (just think about component tolerances) anyway, but they are close enough to justify easy to read scales on the front panel.

All the best,
Dominik

Makes sense. I trust you guys will do the right thing ... no worries!

Finally, we have started to ship the first units this week!
The finetuning process took longer than usual this time, but to our ears, the result justifies the delay by all means...

All the best,

Actually, there are two special features on the museq:
First comes the possibility to individually switch the high/low shelf filters into high/low cut filters with an additional resonance peak, which allows some very nice tweaks.
The second one is a switchable slew rate limiter for the output stages, which influences the frequency response and adds THD to the signal. It gives the EQ a second flavor, and we have called it the warm mode for a reason.
The overall sound characteristics are wide, open and transparent - somehow it's like raising a curtain one wasn't aware of before.

All the best,
Dominik

Do want, a lot.

Just a note to the dudes @ Elysia - the English Museq manual is labelled as the mpressor manual.

Seriously interested in one of these, when finances allow of course.

My (well,it is a demo so far but I don't think I'll be able to give this back) Museq with serial #000002 has just arrived here at Surround SFX / TimeTools.

My first impression (so bring in the lump of crystalline salt) is that I'm going to leave the "Top" band (aka the upper parametric band) set to 16kHz and gain at +6dB and just remove the knobs. Well, not really of course, but it does sound *that* good. Fast, tight bass and no resonancy feel when boosting mids whatsoever.

I'll be writing up a little review in a bit----if time permits. In the meantime look at these ;-)

Hi macc,

Thanks a lot for the hint, I have just fixed it.

Cheers,

Hi Denis,

Now that is really a clever idea! We'll just tune all 5 bands "right", strip off all the controllers and save lots of money on selected pots ;-)

Have lots of fun with your unit,
Dominik

Hehe :-)

I've been listening to the same recording running through the Museq for the last two hours now, a piece of orchestral score. DA/AD via ULN-8. Bob's my uncle.

All of a sudden there is a new breed of mastering EQs available. First the Buzz Audio, now this. Exciting times!

Actually that's a point... I can't seem to find a firm UK retail price. Any idea?

I'd suggest to contact Kevin from Unity Audio. For prices in Great Britain Pounds and demoing our gear in the UK, he'd be just the right guy to ask.

Okey dokey - saw that on your site but thought there might be a figure floating about.

Thanks a lot. I'm looking (and saving) for something just like this, it looks like it could be the one...

Wave Distribution is now scheduling demos.

PM or e-mail me to make arrangements if you'd like to check it out.

Is kind of Alpha EQ in the pipeline, too?

I'm sure this would be a great project, but it is not in the pipeline for now. In terms of technology, the museq employs quite a lot of alpha compressor know how inside (the discrete opamps, lots of identic components etc.)

But of course you are thinking about an M/S option, dynamic bands and other wonderful features like that... maybe we'll do it in the future, but probably not in the next few years.

Our next development project is something completely different: a very cool API 500 series module in elysia style! We're not ready to reveal what it is right now, but more news on this will be coming soon.

All the best,
Dominik

Okay folks, the museq is here and going through the paces. It is BEAUTIFUL (not surprised) and sounds amazing (ditto).

PM to schedule a demo.
