BetterMaker EQ 232P MKII Equalizer
The BetterMaker EQ 232P MKII Equalizer brings the sonic superiority of analog, and combines it with the precision of digital control. The BetterMaker EQ 232P MKII Equalizer works along with it's plug-in control interface to provide precise control, the saving of presets, and full recallability from your computer.
The BetterMaker EQ 232P MKII Equalizer was designed to have the greatest flexibility of any analog EQ, while still\ allowing absolute recall and repeatability. BetterMaker often found the strengths of software plug-ins wasnt their sound, but the ability to quickly audition different settings. This allowed us to make faster, better informed musical choices. The ability to jump back and forth between (sometimes vastly different) settings allowed us to keep a clear vision of the sonic goal in mind, while quickly making decisions on the best setting to use. However, BetterMaker recognized the sonic superiority of analog gear compared to their digital counterparts. In countless shoot-outs, the analog versions always won. Since BetterMaker is a company that cares about better sound over processing speed, our engineers would take the extra time to use a full analog chain because it simply sounds better. BetterMaker developed the EQ 232P MKII Equalizer to give us the speed of plugins, but the fidelity of analog.
In the traditional analog world the time spent in the act of having to set and reset knobs and buttons to audition between settings often skewed our choices. More time was spent tweaking knobs trying to recover an earlier setting than was spent listening. The limited resolution of the mechanical parts often meant only very coarse adjustments were possible (previously only solvable by very expensive mechanical switches).
A difficult situation to say the least, but the greater fidelity, openness, and depth of the analog gear was always worth it to our ears. Even after years of advancement in digital algorithms, the older analog versions always sounded better. With these goals in mind, we strove to create a hybrid EQ that was the best of both worlds: A true analog EQ based on classic designs, but with the repeatability, fine resolution, and consistency of digital plug-ins. Enter the inspiration for the Bettermaker EQ232P MKII!
