Vintage Digital & Analogue Studio Effects
At the heart of this stereo unit are gently sweeping treble and bass EQ shelves (the Baxandall Curves) that give you subtle yet profound control over wide sections of the frequency spectrum. The opposite of a surgical tool, the BAX EQ is all about sweetening sounds with broad, musical adjustments.
Starting far below and above the human hearing limit, the broad and gentle EQ curves gently tug at the audible frequencies in ways that other EQs cannot. This unique design provides a distinctively sweet and open treble along with a powerful and three-dimensional low-end you simply can’t get out of other EQs. Once engaged, you’ll never bypass it again.
The bass and treble shelves found on most professional EQs introduce phase delay and other audible artifacts, sometimes called “color.” The Dangerous BAX EQ’s shelves maintain phase coherence, and — because it is built from the same ultra-high-grade components we use in all our equipment — the Dangerous BAX EQ does not change the characteristics of the original sound.
This is the ineffable paradox of real analog transparency: you have the ability to make powerful changes without substantially altering the original sonic characteristics. Rather than adding more color, you’ll hear the original colors more beautifully, more openly and more powerfully, no matter how far you push it. Rather than adding more color, the original will glisten gorgeous, open and potent- with its original patina untouched.
Beyond the easy-to-use shelf controls, the Dangerous BAX EQ is equipped with sophisticated filtering options that vastly expand its versatility. The cut filters on either end of the spectrum dial out unneeded frequencies that will be boosted at the far end of the shelves. On the low end, you can cut below 12 Hz, where headroom-eating, infrasonic rumble and DC-offset live.
On the high end, you can dial out ultra-sonics like 70 kHz that can carry out-of-band noise that translates as harshness in many A/D converters. And when you start playing the cut filters against the shelves, a whole world of unique tone-shaping opens up within the audible frequency band – sounds you wont get anywhere else.
In a category all its own, the Dangerous BAX EQ will compliment any studio configuration. Outstanding in a mastering rig, on a whole mix or in any tracking chain, the Dangerous BAX EQ lets you effortlessly sweeten and deepen any music — like the best bass-treble controls you’ve ever used.
As with all of our products, the Dangerous BAX EQ incorporates a sophisticated circuit design, uncompromising quality, and elegant, straightforward use.
