BEQ1

British Console Equaliser Algorithm

Discrete Class A channel amplifier modules designed for British consoles in the early 1970s are characterized by their unique sonic qualities: tight and balanced low end, wide and smooth mid range and a warm yet lustrous high end. The BEQ1 Algorithm accurately and efficiently simulates these remarkable characteristics in the digital domain with its meticulously designed topology. It is the ultimate tool for adding that vintage Britification to all instruments in the mix.




Key Features


  • Extremely High Processing Efficiency.
  • Supports sampling frequencies up to 384 kHz.
  • Clickless parameter update.
  • Proprietary topology which is optimized for low latency, low noise and high dynamic range.
  • Supports both 32 bit (single precision) and 64 bit (double precision) floating-point processing.
  • Built-in reference-quality upsampling algorithm which can be enabled at sampling frequencies 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz to achieve bell shape symmetry at high frequencies.
  • Clearly and concisely implemented in pure C++: portable to any platform that is supported by a C++ compiler.

Specifications


BEQ1 British Console Equaliser Algorithm features three bands and low pass/high pass filters which have the following specifications:

  • High Pass Filter: 18dB per octave slope with four selectable cutoff frequencies: 45Hz, 70Hz, 160Hz and 360Hz.

  • Low Pass Filter: 18dB per octave slope with five selectable cutoff frequencies: 6kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, 14kHz and 18kHz.

  • Low Frequency Shelving: Four selectable center frequencies: 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz and 220Hz. The amount of boost or attenuation is continuously variable from -16 dB to 16 dB.

  • Mid Frequency Peaking: Selectable 'High Q' or 'Low Q'. Six selectable center frequencies: 360Hz, 700Hz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz and 7.2kHz. The amount of boost is continuously variable from 0 dB to 18 dB with 'High Q' and from 0 dB to 12 dB with 'Low Q'. And the amount of attenuation is continuously variable from 0 dB to -18 dB with 'High Q' and from 0 dB to -12 dB with 'Low Q'.

  • High Frequency Shelving: Three selectable center frequencies: 10kHz, 12kHz and 16kHz. The amount of boost or attenuation is continuously variable from -16 dB to 16 dB.
