One thing that I have been wanting to really see come to fruition in the pro audio world (since all the way back in 2001, when I first heard rumors of it's impending arrival), is digitally controlled analog gear. In truth, we have seen some, but not to the degree I personally want to see. But, a new offering from WesAudio is most definitely adding to the genre. Introducing the WesAudio HYPERION 500-Series Equalizer.
“The WesAudio HYPERION 500-Series Equalizer is fully analog parametric EQ with +24dBu of headroom and digital recall. The HYPERION features a ton of innovative improvements that no other processor on the market provides.”
A fully parametric analog EQ, that is digitally controlled (for precision and recallability!), functions as a stereo, dual mono, and mid/side EQ, is controlled via a plug-in on your PC, has and A/B comparison feature, true bypass, metering with clip detection in “input” and “output” modes, and High-Pass Filter - what is there that is not going to excite you?
The WesAudio HYPERION 500-Series Equalizer is expected to start shipping in April 2018.
