Experience the excellence of the Malcolm Toft Equate 8 Equalizer, which boasts 8-channels of analogue Series 80 EQ complemented by sweeping High and Low Pass Filters on every individual channel. Meticulously crafted by the renowned Malcolm Toft, this formidable rackmount equalizer offers modern functionalities to enrich your audio production endeavors.
Originally developed by Malcolm Toft for Trident 80 in the 1970s, the 8 Channels of EQ on the Equate 8 are inspired by the Series 80 Consoles. These EQs feature sweepable High- and Low-pass filters that allow you to finely adjust the frequency range between 20Hz-350Hz and 1.5kHz-20kHz respectively. Alongside the fixed frequency ranges of the Low and High Shelving EQs at 80Hz and 10kHz, these filters provide endless possibilities for eliminating unwanted frequencies or focusing on specific sonic elements. Additionally, you can achieve a 'Pultec trick' effect by boosting with the Shelf EQ and cutting with the Filters at the same frequencies. The High Mid EQ covers a range from 1fHZ to 15K with a gain of up to 15db, while the Low Mid EQ spans from 100fHZ to 1.5K. The Equate 8 brings this historical legacy into modern times.
Convenient 500-Series Layout
The Equate 8 is a 3U rack unit that follows the 500-Series spacing protocol between each EQ channels. This ensures compatibility with other devices in your audio setup. The EQ features balanced jack and Dsub connectors, allowing seamless integration with a wide range of equipment. You can use the EQ across mixer insert channels, connect it directly to any Audio Converter via Dsub, or allocate some channels for tracking while using others for mixing. With its internal power supply, the Equate 8 provides a compact and space-saving solution for processing 8 channels of EQ. This eliminates the need for external adapters, streamlining your workflow and reducing cable clutter.
Recording or Mixing
Whether you're tracking a drum kit, and wish to filter each mic - or maybe you're recording synths, a vocal and guitars simultaneously, the Equate 8 allows you the flexibility to reach out and have that perfect blend of classic sound, precise control, and convenient features. When mixing you might choose to 'set and forget' some channels for sub-groups or mix-bus duties, and then use a few channels for individual tonal shaping? Enhance your audio productions to new heights with this exceptional 8-channel analogue EQ, made in England from Malcolm Toft.
