    Product Information

    The vintage-style fully stereo 1974 four band Parametric Equaliser provides exceptional analogue musicality and sonic clarity, taking it's inspiration from 1970's-era gear. It has the ability to perform subtle shaping for mastering purposes that require a delicate touch and easy recall, but is just as capable of tonal sculpting, adding the analogue warmth and character that is near impossible to emulate in the digital domain.

    Get immersive with the stereo operation, with one set of controls for both channels. The versatile design features dual channel precision stepped potentiometers, providing exceptional accuracy for fast and simple recall. The fully variable bandwidth allows you to control the parametric mid bands, making adjustments as surgically precise or as broad and natural sounding as you could ever require. Fully adjustable low and high cut filters are also included, ideal for tuning out undesirable signals at the frequency extremes. It also features a switchable slope allowing you to alter the focus at the high and low frequencies plus a low peak setting that magnifies the bottom end. The 1974 is perfect for tonal shaping, staying true to the sound of the 70s and ideal for any musician.

    The genuine stereo linked operation of the 1974 makes adjustment quick and extremely simple using just one set of controls to alter both channels. Gone is the wasted time spent fiddling about on every control trying to match the settings of the left and right channels with each other. The 1974 uses precision potentiometers, each one being matched for left/right accuracy to within fine tolerances by our trained technicians, so that both channels operate identically, and also have indented operation, providing exceptional accuracy for fast and simple recall.

    The 1974 is a true 'parametric' equaliser, with the four bands having fully variable frequency controls and offer cut and boost of +/-12dB's. However, unlike EQ's with a no bandwidth adjustment, or a simple switch, the two mid bands have completely variable filter bandwidth controls enabling the user to focus in on very narrow sections of the audio spectrum or apply a broad natural sounding filter, or, of course, anything in between the two. This makes the 1974 incredibly versatile and capable of modifying everything from subtly fine tuning mixes to tone sculpting problematic recordings.

    The 1974 also includes fully variable low and high cut filters, ideal for tuning out undesirable signals. The low cut (otherwise known as High Pass Filter) having a range of 10Hz-225Hz and the high cut (otherwise known as Low Pass Filter) 4kHz-32kHz. The beauty of being fully variable is that, unlike fixed frequency filters, it is easy to sweep both controls to find the perfect setting and remove sounds with pinpoint accuracy. This is especially useful when bracketing individual tracks where it will be necessary to cut the bass to remove rumble and top to remove hiss, as these undesirable signals will just add up as the tracks are layered. For instance, cut everything instrument below 100Hz except those within that spectrum, such as the kick, bass or synths etc to provide extra headroom to work and also tighten up the bass making it sound less muddy. And likewise for the high frequencies.
