    I've just bought an Epifani Quest 2 preamp for my Berg IP112, it works really really well.

    My question is what frequency, and by how much is the mid cut switch cutting ?.

    Can I approximate this on channel 1 ?.

  2. From my experience with the 502, that mid cut on the top channel is a wide Q cut centered around 350 hz or so. The documentation says -8db. I hear the semi-parametric mid control on the bottom channel as having a narrower Q, so it won't cut as much... but that 300 to 400hz region will get you close.

    I don't dig those extreme 'scoop' on/off contols much. I do dig the tone of the bottom channel with just a slight amount of upper mids cut... maybe 11 o'clock at around 800 hz... just smooths it out a touch without sucking all the punch out of it.. IMO!
