Easiest/Best Sounding 1/2 rack Parametric?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Mo'Phat, May 12, 2004.

  1. Howdy, I'm in the market for a Parametric EQ, and have 1/2 rackspace to work with.

    Raven Labs True Blue will be suggested, but it's too tall for the rack space.

    The Presonus EQ-3B is tempting, but it's only 3 band, and it would be nice to control Bass, Low Mid, Hi Mid and Treble.

    I can't seem to find information on any others.

    The only other thing I'm thinking about is the Alesis DEQ-224 which is a 1/2 rack Programmable Graphic Eq, but I haven't really heard anybody's impressions of it.

    There's an older DBX half rack model that gets good reviews. I'm having trouble finding the model number though. I edited out my first reference, which was for the 242, a full space unit.

    The Speck ASC is probably the best half rack unit, but come with money...
