The DEQ2496 is a highprecision digital 24-bit/ 96 kHz EQ/RTA mastering processor, ideal for sophisticated live sound trouble-shooting or audiophile mastering. Whether youre putting the finishing touches on recorded material or creating an optimal live sound for a multi-way PA, the DEQ2496 is built to provide meticulous control.

Equalization? Dynamics? Feedback correction? Yes, yes, yes. You can have it all with the DEQ2496. Automatic FFT analysis with Auto EQ? We added that too.

The DEQ2496 is a whole rack of flexible equalization, dynamics and time correction functions designed to fix problems and generally optimize sound quality.

  • Dual 31-band Graphic Equalizers (stereo linkable)

  • Dual 31-band Virtual Paragraphic Equalizers (stereo linkable)

  • Dual 10-band Parametric EQs per stereo side

  • Dynamically-activated EQ

  • Feedback Destroyer with Learning Mode

  • Stereo Imager

  • Compressor/Expander

  • Limiter

  • Digital Delay

  • RTA/SPL/FFT Analyzer with Auto EQ function

 

Dual 31-band Graphic Equalizers, 31-band Virtual Paragraphic Equalizers and 10-band Parametric

Naturally the DEQ2496 has phase-neutral digital graphic EQ ­but in addition weve added a function that allows you to change the bandwidth of each frequency from standard 1/3 to as much as 59/3. Or, if you prefer the old-school approach to variable bandwidth, weve included 10-band parametrics that can be fine-tuned in increments down to 1/60 of an octave.

 
 

Feedback Destroyer with Learning Mode

With the digital capabilities weve just listed, its easy to see why we were able to include a highly-effective Feedback Destroyer (FBD) feature its essentially a dynamicallyactivated parametric EQ that watches the whole frequency spectrum in 1¨M60-octave bands and then instantly identifies and notches out feedback. FBD can be run in AUTO mode to compensate for movements of performers on stage, or in SNGLE mode that locks onto individual frequencies and then varies the amount of attenuation and bandwidth depending on feedback stimulus more suited to fixed microphone installations. We also included a LEARN mode that generates short audio pulses, raises their gain until feedback occurs and then locks into potential trouble-causing band centers.

 
 

Compressor/Expander and Limiter

The DEQ2496 has a comprehensive set of dynamics processing tools that can be used as two independent channels or stereo linked. Everything youd find on a dedicated compressor/ expander is here including variable rations from 1:1.1 to 1:100, ATTACK times from 0 to 200ms, 0-3dB variable knee and 20 to 4000ms RELEASE, all adjustable from a coarse/fine adjustment scale. The built-in separate LIMITER has Threshold, Hold and Release functions.

 
 

RTA/SPL/FFT Analyzer with Auto EQ function

The DEQ2496 features an FFT real time analyzer for precise graphic display of 61 frequency bands. You can monitor main or digital inputs and outputs, AUX/ digital out or a feed from an RTA microphone and display the results in a multitude of ways including funky retro VU meters. You get all of the usual peak/hold, display rate and scale features you would expect from a professional measurement tool, plus our user-definable AEQ (Auto EQ function), which allows you to analyze and adjust your systems frequency response automatically (perfect for roughing out initial room adjustments). In Graphic EQ mode, you can choose between UNCORRECTED response, which shows the mutual influence of adjacent bands, or select TRUE response to apply a specially developed algorithm that displays the actual results of the equalizer setting.
