“I’D PREFER TO HAVE AN AUDIENT CONSOLE IN MY STUDIO THAN THE MONEY EQUIVALENT OF SEVERAL FANCY VINTAGE RACK BOXES. I LIKE THE AUDIENT. I REALLY LIKE IT. IT’S A POWERFUL TOOL.” – PETE TOWNSHEND

FOUR BAND EQ
Flexible, powerful, musical
The incredibly flexible, Dearden designed EQ offers two fully parametric bands that span from 40Hz to 20kHz, offering a powerful and punchy sound. These are flanked by low and high shelving EQ bands (with a minimal signal path) that are perfect for adding weight and air to your source and when combined with the parametric EQ, make for the ultimate sculpting tool. Don’t forget, you can really take advantage of the EQ as it can be split across both the short and long faders, making us one of the only companies to offer this unique feature.
