Overview

Following the success of its Pultec-style EM-PEQ 500 Series equalizer module, the A-Designs EM-EQ2 is a 2-channel, rackmount version of the EM-PEQ, which is famous for its low-end punch when used on the 2-bus.

Well-suited for tracking, mixing and even mastering applications, the EM-EQ2 is a dual-mono equalizer housed in a rugged, all-metal 2U chassis. Sonically nodding to the classic Pultec EQP-1A sound, the EM-EQ2 utilizes the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs' popular solid-state EM-PEQ and Pacifica mic pres, putting a slightly unique twist on the classic filter design of yesteryear. That aside, the EM-EQ2 faithfully preserves the EQ section design, control layout and wonderfully smooth musicality of the original Pultec unit.

Additional features include a nickel core output transformer, Wima caps, and a true hard bypass. Instead of using common off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a custom-wound tapped inductor wound to the same values as the 500 Series EM-PEQ. Fully balanced, noise-free performance with modern impedance specs make for intuitive operation and quick studio integration.

Says A-Designs Audio's Peter Montessi, "The original (Pultec) EQP-1A has long been revered by both recording and mastering engineers for its ability to improve the sound of literally anything running through it. "The much more affordable EM-EQ2 is our take on that classic design with all of the same freq settings and inductors that made the Pultec a must-have for capturing the bottom end. This product is perfect for those engineers who are looking to add some vibe to their ITB tracks or 2-bus but prefer to use standard rack-mount gear instead of 500 Series modules. "I should also point out that the EM-EQ2 pairs up exceptionally with our HM2EQ HAMMER (see #180185) for those engineers looking to add some analog texture that the digital world still lacks."
