Man, today is a slow day for recording news. Fortunately, I keep a few posts in the chamber to use just for a time like this. Not to say I’m with-holding current news but much like I’ve learned from dating girls, if you give them everything at once, they expect it forever. Who knew you would come to a recording website AND learn about how to deal with the ladies. Speaking of which, ladies Loooooove pultec style EQs and A-Designs has just the Valentines day gift for you special someone (if your special someone doesn’t like my gift ideas, drop me a line and I’ll take them off of your hands at NO charge!)
Following the success of its Pultec-style EM-PEQ 500 Series equalizer module, A-Designs Audio is proud to now announce the availability of a new two-channel rack-mounted version known as the EM-EQ2.
Well-suited for tracking, mixing and even mastering applications, the EM-EQ2 is a dual-mono equalizer housed in a rugged, all-metal 2U chassis. Sonically nodding to the classic Pultec EQP-1A sound, the EM-EQ2 utilizes the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs’ popular solid-state EM-PEQ and Pacifica mic pres, putting a slightly unique twist on the classic filter design of yesteryear. That aside, the EM-EQ2 faithfully preserves the EQ section design, control layout and wonderfully smooth musicality of the original Pultec unit.
Additional features include a nickel core output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima caps, and a true hard bypass. Instead of using common off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a custom-wound tapped inductor wound to the same values as the 500 Series EM-PEQ. Fully balanced, noise-free performance with modern impedance specs make for intuitive operation and quick studio integration.
Available in February, retail pricing on the A-Designs Audio EM-EQ2 is set at $2,695.00 USD.
