BAE Audio has announced the launch of its new G10 equalizer.
The unit, first unveiled at the 139th AES Convention, adds to BAE Audios growing 500 series offerings with a punchy, transformer-balanced signal path, versatile 10-band graphic EQ configuration, and 2520-style op-amps. This versatile studio tool has applications from tracking to mixing to mastering, its tone shaping capabilities for tweaking drum or guitar sounds or sweetening an entire mix.
With 10 carefully selected bands offering up to 12 dB of boost or cut on tap, the G10 offers a level of tone sculpting that can help any audio sit perfectly in the mix. The easy-to-use slider-based interface helps users intuitively visualize the EQ curves they are applying. Switchable high-pass and low-pass filters, tuned at 80 Hz and 12 kHz respectively, help make the G10 a truly complete sound shaping solution.
“10-band graphic EQs are a popular studio tool because of their ability to sculpt your sound precisely so that it fits just right in your mix,” says BAE Audio CEO Mark Loughman. “With the G10 we’re providing that functionality with BAE’s trademark superior components and build quality plus an innovative implementation of input and output transformers in the path. As a result, the G10 is both versatile and great sounding and will shine on any source in any stage of the recording process.”
The G10 features input and output transformers that imbue any audio passing through it with a unique tonal character. “The transformers give the G10 an incredibly tight sound that has plenty of punch without harshness,” Loughman says. “It has a color and personality to it all its own and provides a nice counterpoint to the British-designed BAE EQs that you probably already have in your lunchbox.”
The G10 is shipping now and is available through authorized BAE Audio dealers.
