Sonalksis DQ1 Dynamic Equalizer - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

Four independent bands of sophisticated yet intuitive dynamic filter control
MFR# 101

Product Description

Dynamic equalization allows frequency sculpting beyond the limits of standard 'static' equalizers, by linking the user-defined frequency response to the audio signal level; thus frequency imbalances can be corrected psych-acoustically, altering an equalization curve dynamically on the basis of program loudness.

The Sonalksis DQ1 dynamic-equalizer is based on the same analog EQ circuits as the award winning SV-517 EQ, but with completely dynamic operation, so the filters 'morph' in response to the signal level. This extreme versatility makes the DQ1 suitable for sound design roles ranging from precision sculpting to creative molding, ambient enhancement or restoration. Working as the perfect compliment alongside the Sonalksis SV-517 multi-style (static) EQ, the DQ1 is a completely unique and indispensable addition to any audio processing toolbox.

The Sonalksis DQ1 Features

The Sonalksis DQ1 is a frequency sculpting processor first and foremost, appropriate more for dynamic-filtering purposes than frequency-selective dynamics, and although these two applications are to some extent interchangeable, the DQ1 will be more at home as a tool to provide gentle but precise sculpting of the audio spectrum.

If greater dynamic impact is required it can be achieved with the Sonalksis CQ1, the sister product of the DQ1, which is designed primarily as a frequency-selective compressor/expander, providing a means to aggressively shape the signal dynamics of explicit frequency bands.

  • 4 independent bands of sophisticated yet intuitive dynamic filter control
  • Independently variable attack and release rates on each band
  • Definable side-chain filtering ensures any frequency can act as a trigger
  • High quality minimum phase 'true analogue' filters using Sonalksis 'State-space' physical model
  • Zero latency: absolutely no internal delay whatsoever
  • Each band is switchable between dynamic or standard 'static' mode
  • 64bit floating point internal precision throughout
  • Ultra efficient processing, with specific optimizations for native processors
  • Up to 192 kHz support

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.
