Two-band program EQ designed to work in standard
The Purple Audio LILPEQr is Purple Audio's take on the
classic program (aka final mix) equalizer. It offers high and low frequency
shelving bands, each with three carefully selected corner frequencies to choose
from, and a switchable fader knob for overall level control.
The LILPEQr emulates the colorful 3D richness and useful
responses of our favorite vintage tube (aka valve) program EQs (namely, the
Lang PEQ-1 and the Klangfilm RZ062), but in a compact, solid-state format. The
LILPEQr will add air, weight, and glue to an already balanced mix. Additionally
you can also use the LILPEQr to immediately and intuitively alter the overall
tone of an individual source.
When the EQ is first switched in (center switch position -
"IN" - LED off) your signal is injected passively into the tone
network, directly following the input transformer. As with many classic program
equalizers, this configuration allows for the ultimate in wide, lush, mix-buss
response with extra "glue" and all that richness.
Flip the switch one more click (upper switch position -
"IN+Level" - LED red) to activate the buffered "Level"
control. Placed in between the input transformer and EQ network, these
discrete, class A buffers change the response ever so slightly, making the
signal seem a bit tighter and more focused. This mode is more useful on
individual sources within a mix.
Relay true bypass (lower switch position - "BYP" -
LED green) allows for easy before and after EQ comparisons, and a simple
overall circuit path allows for wide bandwidth so that everything passes
through... sounding better! In program mode ("IN"), with both EQ
knobs centered, frequency response is +/- 0.5dBu from 20Hz to 20kHz, and
extends below 10Hz and well beyond 120kHz before any drooping occurs.
