Vintage 3-Band EQ W2395c (api 500 ® - system)
W2395c filter functions
• Two active Baxandall tone control faders for high and low frequencies (+/- 12 dB)
• Semi-parametric mid band filter
• Selectable frequency ranges for the high frequency band (2 kHz | off | 5 kHz)
• Selectable frequency ranges for the low frequency band (80 Hz | off | 110 Hz)
• Variable mid band filter continuously sweepable between 155 Hz and 3.5 kHz (max. +/- 10 dB)
• Q-factor control of the mid band filter via three-position switch (1.5 | 0.7 | 0.4)
The W2395c equalizer offers versatile sound shaping possibilities for the most diverse program material. The unit provides active Baxandall tone controls for treble and bass as well as a semi-parametric mid band filter. to 80 Hz or 110 Hz, and 2 kHz or 5 kHz respectively. The center position of each switch marks the "off" position and may be used to disengage the filter band without adjusting the gain control.
Both gain controls of the Baxandall bands are set up as faders and allow level adjustments between +/- 12 dB per band. Due to the circuit design, the high and low bands may influence each other by up to 4 dB depending on the gain setting within each band.
Two three-position toggle switches allow setting the shoulder frequencies of the low and high bands
The semi-parametric mid band filter was taken from Roger Schult's renowned UF1 filter and provides a continuously variable center frequency between 155 Hz and 3.5 kHz with up to +/- 10 dB of gain. A three-position toggle switch allows setting the q-factor of the bell filter to narrow (Q = 1.5), medium (Q = 0.7), and wide (Q = 0.4).
An illuminated "on"-switch allows removing the EQ from the signal path by means of a high-quality relay ("hard bypass").
Easy to use Baxandall shelving filters for high and low frequencies, and a semi-parametric mid band EQ for musical tone control. Ideally suited for recording, mixing, and mastering applications.
Requires a compatible api 500 ® format rack or console for operation.
