Purple Audio Lilpeqr M 500-Series Mastering Equalizer
The Purple Audio Lilpeqr M 500-Series Mastering Equalizer is a two-band program equalizer designed to work in standard 500-Series racks. The Lilpeqr M is the "Mastering" version which offers "stepped-switch" potentiometers for precise recall.
The Purple Audio Lilpeqr M 500-Series Mastering Equalizer emulates the colorful 3D richness and useful responses of Purple's favorite vintage tube (aka valve) program EQs (namely, the Lang PEQ-1 and the Klangfilm RZ062), but in a compact, solid-state format. The LILPEQr will add air, weight, and glue to an already balanced mix. Additionally you can also use the LILPEQr to immediately and intuitively alter the overall tone of an individual source.The LILPEQr is Purple's take on the classic program (aka final mix) equalizer. It offers high and low frequency shelving bands, each with three carefully selected corner frequencies to choose from, and a switchable fader knob for overall level control.
When the EQ is first switched in your signal is injected passively into the tone network, directly following the input transformer. As with many classic program equalizers, this configuration allows for the ultimate in wide, lush, mix-buss response with extra "glue" and all that richness.
Flip the switch one more click to activate the buffered "Level" control. Placed in between the input transformer and EQ network, these discrete, class A buffers change the response ever so slightly, making the signal seem a bit tighter and more focused. This mode is more useful on individual sources within a mix.
Relay true bypass allows for easy before and after EQ comparisons, and a simple overall circuit path allows for wide bandwidth so that everything passes through sounds better. In program mode, with both EQ knobs centered, frequency response is +/- 0.5dBu from 20Hz to 20kHz, and extends below 10Hz and well beyond 120kHz before any drooping occurs.
