GOLY DAQ Stereo Dynamic Asymmetrical Equalizer

Dynamic asymmetrical equalizer with a first stage consisting of peak/bell filter which can operate in the Low Mid or Low frequency spectrum, and a second stage with the filters in series consisting of a peak/bell filter

Product Description

The first stage of the Goly DAQ Stereo Dynamic Asymmetrical Equalizer consists of a peak/bell filter, which will operate in the Low Mid or Low frequency spectrum, depending on the setting. The second stage, with the filters in series, consists of a peak/bell filter, which will operate in the High Mid/High frequency spectrum, depending on the setting. While the filter design in itself bears no resemblance to the design of the Dynamic Shelving Filters in the GOLY DSEQ, the basic mechanics of the side chains are the same on the two units.

The dynamic sections on each filter will let you vary the attack and release times, as well as the dynamic hold, while the soft/hard switch takes you from a low, soft knee ratio, useful for subtle sculpting, to a higher, harder knee ratio, with a high end roll off on the side chain, for a bit more bite and grab.

The Philosophy

The DAQ was originally conceived to complement the DSQ, and since it is the younger sibling, it is hard to describe it in a vacuum. The older sister, the DSEQ, has a very peculiar and pleasing distortion characteristic, which lends itself to broad strokes of tonal shaping, tape like emulations, and it will let you push your loudness curves a little farther than you would usually be able to go, due to the dynamic hold.

The DAQ fills in the gaps. It is a much cleaner design in terms of sonics, and while it can easily do broader strokes, the design and interface is tilted towards surgical types of tonal shaping, which are virtually impossible to achieve on the DSQ.

During the development of the DAQ, the feedback from the engineers listening and commenting turned out some really interesting features and controls, and with a “more is more” approach (the DSQ had a “less is more” approach), there was a high degree of implementation, which will be covered on the coming pages.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
