XQP 535 Program EQ

XQP Program EQ is an API 500 series module. This EQ is a baxandall EQ which means it creates curves, that not an ordinary EQ would make.
this EQ has two knobs. Each knob can boost or cut up to 4db. For each knob, it has two frequency choices: 10k/15khz and 50/100hz. facing the knobs up at 12 o'clock, makes the bands at 0db. It also has an IN button which allows you to engage or bypass the unit.
The sound quality of this eq is very smooth and warm. you can make stuff darker or more present, and make them fatter or thinner. It sounds fantastic on everything. For example if you think that an instrument, or a vocal track needs to be EQed and compressed, and you do so with other gears, and just when you think you are done with your processing, pass it thru XQP EQ. Then you'll surely say "mmm THIS can happen as well". and it's dangerously strange that this happens on every individual track when passes thru xqp eq. in a short description, you can't go wrong with this eq in any way, it will always sound good always.
it's an easy EQ to work with. very straight up. you have two bands with two frequency selection on each band.
i wanted to put n/a for features because first of all you have not many options on this eq. but keep that in mind that this is a BAXANDALL eq with an unique curve that just does magic to everything. so it's supposed to have not many features.
the price is ridiculously low. if you check out the market for hardware baxandall eqs, you'll realize that this is a bargain.
