Introduced in 1970, the UREI 565 also known as The Little Dipper is a fully-analog filter unit made up of a Low Cut, High Cut as well as 2 Band Pass filters.

The Little Dipper filter set was introduced at the 1970 AES show in New York, and filled a desperate little niche created in the audio and film production room: the need for the removal of very specific sonic artifacts and anomalies. The Little Dipper has some of the tightest band filters ever made, and is most famous for this incredibly tight 5% Q on its dual-band filters; the Little Dipper can do these tight cuts in a relatively transparent manner. The Little Dipper can also do extremely tight boosts. Six Q settings are available for each band--three for notches, three for peaks. There is also a Range control for the depth of the cut or boost, with coarse and fine controls for frequency selection. In addition to the two band filters, the Little Dipper features 18dB-per-octave high- and lowpass filters, as well as a global Bypass switch.
