Orban 622B by babooino
This the Orban 622b vintage Parametric Equalizer. Like every other orban gear, it was probably meant to broadcast market. As i have a 111b spring reverb of the same line, i can use that as a reference to mention that the blue face Orbans are not on the hi-fi side of things, but they do sound good.
This nice vintage piece of gear has 2 channels with 4 bands of parametric equalization each. In each band there's a in/out switch which is very handy for AB'ing and there's a master bypass switch for each channel too. Despite being a little bit on the noisy side, 622b is very colorful (in a nice way) and it has been a workhorse here on my studio, specially on kick, bass and smoothing out problematic singers.
I wouldn't use it in mastering, as each channel grew to have it's own character, but it is probably possible to match both channels sonically, tough.
I definitely recommend you to grab one if there's a chance to find a price, as you probably won't get any plugin to do what it does. All in all, this a great piece of gear whether you are mixing ITB or OTB.
