A 500 series 4-band fully parametric equalizer. Based on the Midas Heritage 3000
The 512 Parametric Equalizer is a compact 500 Series 4-band, fully parametric equalizer based on the channel strip from the Midas Heritage 3000 mixing console. This parametric equalizer allows the operator to address multiple parameters with high-precision when applying filters to an audio signal. A specific frequency can be cut or boosted by an exact amount across an adjustable bandwidth or “Q”. Such surgical equalization allows 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 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 512 EQ strip operates across 4 overlapping frequency bands: Bass (20 Hz to 400 Hz); Lo Mid (100 Hz to 2 kHz); Hi-Mid (400 Hz to 8 kHz); and Treble (1 kHz to 20 kHz). The Frequency and Gain adjustments come in stacked dual-concentric controls, with the Gain control on the knob and Frequency control on the outer ring. The 512’s Bass and Treble Q controls are non-functional while in traditional Midas shelving mode, which is the default setting (i.e. Bell switches disengaged). When the Bell switches are engaged and illuminated, the Bass and Treble Q controls provide parametric operation. The Lo Mid and Hi-Mid frequency bands are always in parametric operating mode—so when both Bell switches are engaged, all 4 Width controls provide fully variable parametric equalization.Combining decades of experience with premium-grade components, the Midas 512 EQ offers a warm, organic sound and excellent signal integrity. Get optimal control over the frequency in your sessions—order soon.
