IGS Rubber Bands Stereo Tube Equalizer

IGS Rubber Bands Stereo Tube Equalizer delivers a stereo, tube Pultec-style wideband equalizer with a single set of controls for both left and right channels to ensure precise stereo equilibrium.

The IGS Rubber Bands Stereo Tube Equalizer, thanks to it's single set of controls for both left and right channels, is a great mixing and mastering equalizer, due to its excellent channel convergence. But it is also very good on vocals, guitars and strings – adds fat low end and crispy high frequencies.

Many sound engineers believe that the passive equalizer is a cure for all digital evils. A distinctive characteristic of IGS Rubber Bands Stereo Tube Equalizer is its stereophonic structure, where the manual selecting of components with an accuracy of 1% allows for perfectly synchronous manipulation of both channels. The inputs and outputs are transformer balanced.

Organic Amp
IGS Rubber Bands Stereo Tube Equalizer consists of two blocks: The first block is a classic passive filter well known from the EQP-1 Pultec equalizer. The second block is a specially designed two-stage tube amplifier called Organic Amp.

Sound shape
The new design includes a bypass relay, which allows you to instantly compare the results of your work. IGS Rubber Bands Stereo Tube Equalizer has been divided into 4 sections: 2 for bass and 2 for treble. Frequencies are being selected with stepped switches. Boosting and cutting are controlled continuously. Manipulators featured are Bass Boost, Bass Cut, High Boost (with the choice of Q) and High Cut. Interactions of filters that allow simultaneous boosting and cutting of certain frequencies can produce amazing sound effects.
