Red Rock Sound AQ550b

AQ550b 4-Band Equalizer
Based on Classic American EQ from the late '60s, the AQ550b is a continuation of the EQ
that played a major role in the history of music recording, but with an additional filter band
and several new frequencies. With a surprisingly wide range of tonal variations, the AQ550b
is an invaluable and professional audio tool with great flexibility and excellent sonic ability.

Rather than offer a huge assortment of complex features, the AQ550b provides exactly the
right number of controls. Its four EQ bands are overlapped significantly to aid in dual roles as
problem solver and sweetening device with each band offering seven switchable filter
frequencies that span four-to-five octaves. These frequencies, purposely selected to be
musical rather than numeric.

Making use of Proportional Q intuitively widens the filter bandwidth at minimal settings and
narrows it at higher settings without the need for additional bandwidth controls. This unique
feature minimizes the «phase-shift» sound found in many equalizers.

The AQ550b extends the features of the original hardware and joins the flexibility of the
digital world to the character of the analog processing. The AQ550b plugin designed from the
ground up for fast, efficient work on mid/side, stereo and the objects, the beds (fixed
channels) of immersive mixing environments.

This module allows you to select an equalizer from four available. The equalizers are arranged in series, this allows you to process channels with different equalizers settings.
For example: the first EQ is only the mid channel, the second EQ is only the side channel, the third Eq is the left and right channel. For multi-channel modes: the first Eq is only the left and right channels, the second EQ is the center channel, the third EQ is the LFE, etc.
