    “I’m going to equalize the room.” We’ve all heard that statement so many times that we scarcely think about what it literally means. We know that in practical terms it means adjusting an equalizer to suit your taste. It may be done with the latest high-technology analysis equipment, voodoo magic or simply tweaking away “until it sounds right.” In any case, are we really “equalizing the room”? What exactly are we doing? There are lots of disagreements on this topic… View this story

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   You may have heard it said that equalizers are nothing more than glorified tone controls. That’s pretty accurate and helps explain their usefulness and importance. Simply put, equalizers allow you to change the tonal balance of whatever you are controlling. You can increase (boost) or decrease (cut) on a band-by-band basis just the desired frequencies. Equalizers come in all different sizes and shapes, varying greatly in design and complexity.

    A-Designs Audio has announced the immediate availability of the HAMMER 2, a new version of the original HM2EQ HAMMER three-band, dual-mono tube/hybrid equalizer for studio applications “Although the original HAMMER has certainly developed a very loyal fan base over the past eight years, we’ve been asking our customers if there were ways that it could be made even better,” says A-Designs president Peter Montessi. “Based on the input we got back, we’ve extended the frequencies on the new HAMMER 2,… View this story

    Provided by HOW To Church Sound Workshops. Some of the most frequently asked questions we get have to do with equalization: “What does it do?” “When and how do I use it?” For whatever reasons, most church sound staffs desperately want to put EQ to the test and into action. Perhaps it’s that adjusting equalization controls provide immediate sonic response — for better or worse, you can instantly hear what you’ve done. Equalization can be used in different ways, including:… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Much to my surprise, it seems that people actually care about my favorite gear, since the response to both my favorite mic preamps and compressors was so great. As a result, I thought it was time for another “My Favorite” post, this time about my top 10 equalizers. These are hardware or plug-in EQs that I find myself reaching for during the course of most mixes. Remember, gear choices are very personal,… View this story

    In the beginning there were volume knobs, and that was good. Then came bass and treble controls, and that was better still. But more was wanted, so more was created and thus the equalizer was born. Over time, equalizers have been shaped and honed into the various formats that are ubiquitous today. Graphic, parametric, semi-parametric, paragraphic, and more – such as Lake’s rather brilliant Mesa filters – entered the market years ago and we can’t seem to get enough of… View this story

    In the early days of our industry, equipment was made to serve the user’s needs. Many of the original studio owners came from a radio background. They built their own equipment, from consoles to compressors to equalizers, etc. They didn’t have cost-effective manufacturing in mind when they created this equipment. They built it in order to make superior-sounding recordings. At some point, other people in the audio community asked these pioneers to build equipment for their studios. The world of… View this story
