The Orban 622B equaliser is a two-channel device in a compact, heavy 2U box. It’s a four-band parametric equaliser with bypass switch, input gain trim, overload LED and EQ controls for each channel. Each band has frequency, Q & boost / cut controls plus an in / out switch so individual bands can be switched in or out for comparison purposes. There’s plenty of overlap between bands making the 622B a very flexible EQ.
Sonically, the 622 is warm, similar to an old console channel equaliser, but with more flexibility. Many describe the 622 as “The Poor Man’s GML 8200”, but in actuality, we think you have a fairer description if you call the GML the rich man’s 622B instead. This is a fantastic sounding unit!
