    I'm looking for clarification on how the Mid Pre-Shape button works.

    The way I interpret, with the button OUT, I'm cutting 250 @ 10db, with 500 flat.

    With the button IN, I'm cutting 500 @ 10db with 250 flat.

    So if I wanted to effectively be "flat" across the board, I could keep the button OUT, and boost the 250 eq slider to 10db

    Sound right?

    Yeah, that's about right. I don't know the bandwidth of the mid pre-shape cut compared to the bandwidth of the graphic EQ slider, though...

    Instead of using the graphic EQ to repair the damage done by the mid pre-shape, I use the parametric mid control. That way I don't have to give up one of my graphic EQ bands. My parametric mid always stays set the same to compensate for the cut of mid pre-shape, and my graphic EQ is available for room tuning from one venue to the next.

    Thanks. i thought of that, but i have the parametric set with a boost @ around 650-ish which helps to sneak in the mix with some nice bite.

    My bass has a sweepable mid control i can get down to 300 if I need more in that range.
