I'll take a picture tomorrow...They are AWESOME!

3 switchable Q's... Adjustable boost and cut range of +/-6 db or +/-18 db.

Tons of frequency choices.

I actually just realized I don't have the cable to attach my camera to the laptop.... So, I'll have to post them when I get back to the office.

I spoke with them today about it. I was told the MSRP is going to be $3K and that the one at the show is the only one yet in existance.

I'm not betting my life on the above yet so go ask them tomorrow.

That's the 2 ch, Geoff told me the 8ch pre combined with the 8ch eq would be 10kish so $5k would be a good est.

Hi

Sorry, this is a crummy shot I took on my camera... hopefully Tony will have a better one!

It is a working unit and had been hauled out of our studio for the show!

Hi

Yes, it uses transformers on inputs and outputs and is all class A, discrete transistor circuitry.

It uses enhanced versions of the GTQ2 EQ.

Nice pic!

So, how useable will this be on the master bus? Or is its strength shaping individual tracks?

Hi

I made an option on the high and low frequency controls to have a reduced gain/loss spread (around 6 - 8dB instead of the max 18dB) that would work well with fine adjustments to the master bus.

There's also a huge overlap of frequencies between the high and low controls and the two mid frequency controls.

Like my compressor, I've tried to make this EQ as versatile as possible.

What about the street price ?

I know it's a bit early for that but, do you have any plans to build a version with a preamp section ? heh

Thank you...

There have already been a few made with the original 1U rack size like in the picture Geoff posted above.... Recently, Aurora decided to use a 2U rack for better ergonomics on all future production units of the EQ. So, most likely just a few weeks for one of those.

Yes, but they are not a 1073 copy. All inductors are custom.

Yep... High and low filters.

Cool deal, any idea on the price? Got a photo of the 2U unit? Thanks Tony!

Here, Geoff gives a detailed description as well as a CAD rendering of one channel of the GT4-8:
- A brief outline of our new 4 band EQ

It is truly wonderful.

Not yet... They haven't got the metal work back yet. I only have a picture of my unit, which is the original 1U version.

Price should be around $3k for the two channel.

Hi

we hadn't bothered to have it photographed as the new metalwork flips the modules over to put switches on top and pots underneath.

We will get photos of this version once we finish building a batch.

Here's Tony's picture...

I am very interested in this eq.
I have been looking for neve's 33114 but how is the aurora going to sound?

Anybody know how the eq sounds?

De eq is based on the GTQC eq right?
