MFR# 970-009011

Product Description

The New Benchmark In Live EQ!
The EQ Station is a dedicated Live-EQ. Combined with the Motofader-64 flying fader remote and the TCP/IP based PC/Mac editor software you have the most versatile and sophisticated, yet easy to use, EQ System for any live- and Public Address-application found on the market today.

Front Panel
The most impressing part of the front-panel is the brightest full color display you have ever seen on a 2U 19" box for live-applications. 240x320 pixels resolution (QVGA), and a backlight that is as bright as the best laptop-PC's on the market today, makes overview of settings and adjustments extremely easy.

The display is accompanied with lots of large direct access buttons for accessing features and menus. Several dedicated encoder wheels for adjusting processing is also present. In total this creates an incredibly intuitive user interface that will make even the most analogue thinking sound engineer feel comfortable - within a few minutes he will be able to solve even the most critical situations in a hectic live-event.

The Ins & Outs
The EQ Station includes high-quality analog I/O, MIDI I/O and optional digital I/O available separately. A 9-pin D-SUB connector located next to the MIDI I/O's, is primarily used for connecting the Motofader-64 flying-fader remote. A built in Link-connector works as a passive HUB and makes it very easy to daisy chain multiple EQ Station's to quickly establish a network. This way you do not need an external HUB or network-switch to connect multiple EQ Stations.

Graphic EQ
Everybody knows that there is a big difference in the behavior and response between various industry standard analog graphic EQ's. With the EQ Station you now have a unique option to select the response type you prefer. Using the Type selector gives access to exact DSP-emulations of the main high-end analog graphic EQ's on the live-market today.

You Can Choose From:
  • TC1128
  • Classic960 Narrow-Q
  • Classic960 Broad-Q
  • Classic27

Parametric EQ
Six band high-quality parametric/shelving EQ is available in the EQ Station. Lo and Hi bands are selectable between fully parametric or shelving filters, band 1-4 are selectable between fully parametric and notch filters Impressive +/-24dB gain per band enables any adjustment needed to reach the desired response. A unique way of selecting and displaying the EQ filters with six small boxes makes it very easy to keep an overview of settings and fast switching between filters.

Dynamic EQ
Dynamic EQ enables you to shape your sound depending on the energy of the signal, or to notch out specific level dependent problems. Dynamic EQ processing is not yet wide-spread in live-applications, but it can be a really powerful tool when set up according to the source material. Two different types of Dynamic EQ can be selected: Three band full-range or two band individual.

Delay & Limiter
600 ms of Delay per channel, and a high-quality Brickwall output peak limiter is also present in EQ Station. The Brickwall limiter can be used as safety limiter, e.g. for In Ear Monitor protection.

PC/Mac Editor
A full editing software package running on any standard PC or Mac operating system is available to remote-control an EQ Station or a network of multiple EQ Stations (virtually unlimited number of channels).

The PC/Mac editor software is based on the established TC Icon user interface originally made to control System 6000.
The editor enables control of ALL features in the EQ Station, and because it is running on TCP/IP network protocol, standard LAN-components can be fully utilized when creating a network.

Wireless LAN can easily be set up, using your laptop or Tablet PC

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!

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.

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.
