The PARAMETRIC EQUALISER 512 is a compact 500 Series 4 band fully parametric equaliser based on channel strip originally provided in the legendary MIDAS HERITAGE 3000 mixing console. When used in conjunction with the LEGEND L10, L6, or other

Class Leading EQ

A parametric equaliser allows the operator to address multiple parameters with high precision when applying filters to an audio signal, i.e., a specific frequency can be cut or boosted by an exact amount across an adjustable bandwidth or “Q”. Such

Precision Dual Concentric Controls

Built from the bottom up, the 512 EQ strip operates across 4 overlapping frequency bands: Bass (20 Hz to 400 Hz); Lo Mid (100 Hz to 2 kHz); Hi Mid (400 Hz to 8 kHz); and Treble (1 kHz to 20 kHz). The Frequency and Gain (-15 dB to +15 dB) adjustments

Bass and Treble Bell Switches

512’s Bass and Treble Width controls (Q) are non-functional while in traditional MIDAS shelving mode, which is the default (Bell switches disengaged). When the Bell switches are pressed and illuminated, the Bass and Treble Width controls provide

High Performance Balanced Input Stage

Decades of experience, paired with the premium-grade components that make up every input stage we build, ensures the ultimate in signal integrity that is the very foundation of our design process. That warm and organic MIDAS sound has been heard by

Transistor Driven Transformer Balanced Output

The output stage of any audio processor is the most critical when it comes to maintaining signal integrity, so the 512 utilises discrete bipolar transistors for both their low distortion and noise characteristics. To finalise the balanced output, a

Ultra Low Noise Design

As with all MIDAS consoles and processors, we use only premium quality components throughout our design and manufacturing process, including the ultra low noise op-amps to ensure -97 dBu performance at unity gain from 22 Hz to 22 kHz.

True Hardware Bypass & Power Up Mute

For those occasions when equalisation is not needed, 512’s IN switch can be disengaged to remove all circuitry from the signal path via true hardware relay bypass. Additionally, true bypass mode engages should the chassis become accidentally powered down.
