Quick Overview

500 series stereo analog parametric equlaizer with plugin recall - remote version
Bettermaker EQ 542R


By building these equalizers, Bettermaker wanted to create devices that would have a maximum range of usage and a very characteristic, but clean sound. They picked out the best classic designs and modified them to be more practical. As we work faster and faster every day, we need to have the highest quality and maximum speed we can get. That was the main motivation to develop the Bettermaker EQ 542R.

Besides their pure analog signal paths, the units communicate with your DAW via USB and are fully recallable via plugin in your host. You can save your settings in your DAW and in your project with your AUTOMATION. Another important thing is, when working with EQ542 Remote, you are always in your sweet spot. The remote version has no front controls - all operations are made from your DAW.
