    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    24Bit/96k makes this a win-win for Live and Studio uses.
    LIVE:
    The versatility, savable settings, and layering of settings makes this a strong EQ in a live setting. Savable settings makes it a real time saver in repeating a venue.
    STUDIO:
    We use this to create EQ settings to match our studio monitors to produce a consistently accurate sound when we master. It makes it easier to compensate for transient sounds that can can sneak into a final recording and prevent end listeners from getting a degraded sound.

    WISHES: -1- No one I believe has done this yet, but it would be a great thing to tandem this unit with a live ringout of a venue to get problem frequencies tamed likity split and then save those settings. There are EQ VST's out there that do this, but this would save the extra routing and work.
    -2- Control the unit via a DAW or control surface in a live setting.

    pristine sound

    By Morse

    from arroyo grande, ca

    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    It worked but not out of the box. Had to re-seat a chip in a socket. But really sounds phenominal and is extremely powerful for the little cash it costs. had it up hours and hours and no problems. manual could be better written but you will understand the unit after playing with it.

    Great Piece.

    By Jason

    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    This piece is great; So much control at that price can�ۡ���t be beat. Adding another one to the system was easy and was able to back up all the data with the Midi OX software. Easy to transfer files from one to another. A real time saver.

    Great on studio monitors

    By dcisw

    from Detroit, MI

    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    I purchased this unit for the RTA feature. I used the Behringer ECM8000 mic and the difference it made in my studio monitor (M-Audio MX8As) sound quality is amazing. Listening to commercial songs with the unit on versus bypassed is like night and day. It's helped me immeasurably in mixing in Protools and I couldn't imagine life without it now. Owner's manual is ok but it doesn't really give you a lot of step-by-step instructions on how to do things. But the page menus in the unit are pretty good and intuitive. Overall, great product and very versatile!

    Great stuff

    By Mike Absous

    from Westfield, MA

    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    The many features are all very usefull. By far the most valuable is the RTA. You see what you are doing to the sound, that allows you to learn quickly what are the cause and effects of your manipulation of the graphic or parametric EQ. An other important feature is the meter when used with the calibration mic., allows you to monitor and quantitize the sound pressure during the performance. No more guess work on how loud you are playing. There nothing else that comes close, even for more money, it's an invaluable tool. Get it.

    A awsome value

    By Fuzzball

    from Ida, MI

    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    This unit is an affordable 24-bit/96 kHz mastering processor. I purchased this unit to fee up some of my Roland 2480?s effects processors, but then I also started using it with my small PA system. The unit is good for adding more punch and finding the sources of feedback so that you can eliminate it. The unit helps eliminate undesired frequencies and noise enhancing the overall sound of the PA. The DEQ2496 is built well but I would recommend storing it in a portable rack container in order to prevent damaging it while traveling. Overall it is a very good piece of equipment that is available at an affordable price.

    Great product

    By STL

    from West Palm Beach

    Comments about Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor:

    The Behringer DEQ2496 is a a very good processor for my loudspeaker system. The Behringer DEQ2496 has lots of features and costs about the same as it would for me to buy 4 graphic eq's I would need if I didnt have it.
