Great River MEQ-1NV Preamp and EQ

The Great River MEQ-1NV Preamp and EQ, the Great River channel strip - discrete Class-A, incredibly versatile.

Great River MEQ-1NV Preamp and EQ Channel Strip Details

The Great River MEQ-1NV is the Great River channel strip "" discrete Class-A, incredibly versatile. The EQ-1NV (four-band parametric, true inductor/capacitor, "?70"?s British "1081/1083"-style) is routed via the patch loop jack on the ME-1NV (two-gain-stage, dual-meter, '70's British "1073"-style mic pre).

In this configuration, the EQ is inserted between the mic preamp gain stages, providing a wide range of gain-based effects. With higher input gain / lower output gain, the EQ sections can be driven slightly harder for increased harmonics; with lower input gain / higher output gain, the EQ sounds very transparent. With its ultra-high headroom and ultra-low noise floor, the MEQ-1NV is an indispensable tool for modern recording.
