State-Variable Class-A Equalizer

The Q4 is a unique 500 series equalizer that combines the warmth and detail of a pure class-A circuit with the character of true 100% discrete state-variable filters, with no integrated circuits employed for optimal musicality and signal flow.

  • Four-band semi-parametric equalizer
  • 100% discrete class-A state-variable filters
  • Exceptionally warm & natural sound
  • Compatible with all standard 500 series racks

Powerful tone-shaping EQ controls

Designed to fit in the Radial Workhorse and other 500 series racks, the Q4 features four frequency bands with high and low shelving at 10kHz and 100Hz and two semi-parametric mid sections that let you sweep frequencies from 300Hz to 8kHz. The two mid-bands can be further optimized by selecting either a wide or narrow Q. All frequencies may be cut or boosted by up to 12dB - affording plenty of range. A handy bypass switch lets you compare the dry tone with the EQ's effect and for those equipped with a Workhorse, the Omniport is designated as an unbalanced ¼" TRS input/output connection that can be inserted into a console channel strip using a single TRS cable.

Q4 Applications

Using the Q4 on voice

Connect a mic to your favorite preamp and send the signal through the Q4 to add a gentle sparkle in the top end or solidify the fundamentals in the lower mids. The Q4 lets you quickly dial in the frequencies you need without ever sounding harsh.

Using the Q4 to accentuate tracks

The Q4's musical sounding circuit can make any track sound its best! Simply send an instrument or pre-recorded track into the Q4 and explore! The Q4 is super easy to use. Add some high end to accentuate the air, some bass to warm up the bottom and pull out some mids to blend tracks together.

Using the Q4 on program material

The Q4's warm sounding class-A discrete circuit is the perfect medicine to warm up digital tracks and give them old-school 'vintage' analog character. With 12dB of boost and cut on each frequency, you have plenty of power to shape and create your sonic signature.

Reviews


"Great general purpose EQ with a big, broad sweet sound; narrow Q settings allow you to be surgical."
