Passive Mastering Equalizer
The new dual-channel PASSEQ (Model 1650/1654) is the resolute evolution of the highly acclaimed predecessor Model 2595.
The new PASSEQ now features Air band, a stepped output control ranging from -10dB to +10dB and a mid cut band now starting at 200Hz. These features were on the wish list of many mastering engineers.
Furthermore we have exchanged capacitor arrays in the filters by custom-made single capacitors and optimized the bandwidth per frequency range. This evolution is a sonic revolution.
- Powerful Passive EQ
- The Sound of Passive
- Mid Range Cut
- Air Band
- Easy Recall
- Auto Bypass & Interval
Now, here is the 2nd generation: the new PASSEQ Mastering Equalizer. It features the same amount of boost and cut frequencies, though the choice of frequencies is altered and the Q-factor is more musically adjusted for each selectable frequency.
We tend to perceive these attributes in terms of an increased suppleness and transparency, with perceptibly improved, silky highs and warm and punchy basses.
This is important especially in mastering. This feature was on the wishlist of many mastering engineers for a new version of the Passeq.
