The second generation of Source Audio’s Programmable EQ is here…and the possibilities are endless.
Back in 2011, Source Audio’s Programmable EQ broke new ground by creating an entirely new category in effects, and has since been spotted on boards of guitar icons like David Gilmour and John Mayer.
The EQ2 offers a fresh take on its successful predecessor. It’s a *takes deep breath* graphic and parametric EQ in one with 10 adjustable frequency bands, stereo inputs and outputs, 8 onboard presets, 128 MIDI-accessible presets, 5-pin DIN input and thru jacks, and a master volume with an additional 12dB of boost. If that’s not the definition of “feature-packed,” I’m not sure what is.
Like your other favorite Source Audio creations, EQ2 is also compatible with SA’s Neuro Mobile and Desktop Editors. These Neuro Editors offer a simple and intuitive view of the parametric EQ controls (including adjustable frequency band and Q controls) as well as an optional dynamic limiter, noise gate, alternate signal routing options, and the ability to simultaneously run two discrete EQ presets (one for each stereo output).
EQ2 also includes a USB port for connecting to the Neuro Desktop Editor or receiving MIDI program change (PC) and continuous controller (CC) messages from a digital audio workstation (DAW). The EQ2’s 1/8” Control input jack connects with either the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal or Source Audio’s Neuro Hub. The Neuro Hub smoothly incorporates the EQ2 into the greater Source Audio ecosystem.
The Source Audio EQ2 has a street price of $269 and will begin shipping in March. It will be available for pre-order through participating Source Audio dealers very soon.
