The Bettermaker EQ232P is a Pultec-style stereo/dual mono analog equalizer featuring five filters on each channel. The Bettermaker EQ232P has 399 presets in it's internal memory and all settings can be saved with the DAW project, using the supplied software plug-in.
Every parameter setting of the EQ 232P, which is a Pultec-style stereo/dual mono analog equalizer featuring five filters on each channel, may be saved in up to 399 presets in the unit's internal memory, and may additionally be fully automated, and all settings saved with the DAW project, using the supplied software plug-in.
Both channels of the EQ 232P include a 12 dB/octave high-pass filter covering the range 18 Hz - 200 Hz. There are two active parametric filters on each channel: EQ1 extends from 45 Hz to 1 kHz and EQ2 from 650 Hz to 15 kHz.
The PEQ section, an homage to the classic 1950s Pultec analog equalizer design, features high- and low-frequency shelving passive filters, each with separate boost and attenuation controls, just like the original. The HF section also includes a fully variable bandwidth control, also similarly to the Pultec.
All of the digital rotary encoders controlling the filter parameters are velocity sensitive, enabling coarse changes when spun quickly and very precise fine increments or decrements when turned slowly. The HPF, two filters and PEQ section may be individually hardware bypassed.
By applying digital control to analog hardware, the EQ 232P's hybrid design allows inclusion of a unique feature that is simply impossible on a fully analog unit: an A/B switch. This enables the user to instantly compare two different EQ settings, similarly to the operation of a DAW plug-in.
A Preset section saves and recalls the entire state of the unit (except for the EQ section engage and A/B comparison switches) into 399 memory positions. Position 400 serves as an undo function. Seven factory presets created by Marek Walaszek, mixing/mastering engineer and Bettermaker CEO and product designer, are included.
