Get The Quality You Expect From Midas In A 500 Series EQ With The Midas 512 Parametric Equalizer

The PARAMETRIC EQUALISER 512 is a compact 500 Series 4 band fully parametric equaliser based on channel strip originally provided in the legendary MIDAS HERITAGE 3000 mixing console. When used in conjunction with the LEGEND L10, L6, or other standard 500 Series rackmount chassis, the 512 provides the ideal EQ solution for users seeking MIDAS performance in a modular format that boasts upgraded, premium-quality performance.

Class Leading EQ- A parametric equaliser allows the operator to address multiple parameters with high precision when applying filters to an audio signal, i.e., a specific frequency can be cut or boosted by an exact amount across an adjustable bandwidth or “Q”. Such surgical-level equalisation enables fine tuning the filter to reduce the gain at frequencies that are prone to feedback, or remove undesirable tonal qualities and their overtones. Conversely, the ability to increase (boost) the gain at certain frequencies provides the ideal way to add punch to bass and kick drum signals, or to add presence to vocal or solo instrument tonalities. The PARAMETRIC EQUALISER 512 utilises 4 overlapping frequency bands to easily and expertly craft professional-grade output signals – both in the studio and during live performance. And when it comes to sound quality, MIDAS products are recognized by engineers the world over as the class leader for their warm and responsive delivery
