Designed in the 1951 by Eugene Shenk, this program equalizer is still revered today for its performance and quality. Totally passive with push-pull tube stage amplifier, this equalizer is renowned for its unique ability to boost and cut the same frequencies simultaneously, thereby creating a resonant shelf. The wide range of equalization curves provided makes it possible to boost the very low or very high frequency notes without “muddying up” the middle register instruments, this made the unit useful for mixing and mastering use making audio program sounds better just by passing through it even in “bypass” mode. Two units, previously refurbished, have been sampled in mono and stereo mode.
Carefully sampled @96kHz and @44.1kHz in a professional recording studio with hi-quality audio and digital cables and master grade converters with audio levels perfectly matched and calibrated. They are precisely programmed without normalizing or other destructive digital processing. The programs don’t sound processed, harsh or digital as most plugins do, but instead sound like a natural extension of the original audio, gluing your tracks in the mix with an analog vibe.
