Are the cut frequencies always in my signal path- even in bypass?

The frequency cut filters feature individual relay bypasses. Relays remove the filters entirely from the signal path until desired, for true A/B comparisons, but it is a good idea to leave cuts engaged most of the time, as discussed above.

Do I need to leave blank rack spaces above/below my gear?

Dangerous gear does not get extremely hot. However, we always recommend leaving blank spaces anyway. More ventilation always equals longer gear life, no matter how hot or cool your gear runs. Do not rack your Dangerous gear next to very hot gear such as power… READ MORE Do I need to leave blank rack spaces above/below my gear?

Why are the curves so wide?

The broad bandwidth shelving EQ affects several octaves simultaneously. This intentional design minimizes phase delay and creates subtle, natural sounding EQ. Remember, steep EQ slopes often generate harsh reflections.

Why cut these frequencies, don’t we want to leave them all in there until mixdown?

Infrasonic rumble and ultrasonic interference are pc terms for the audio trash that lurks unnoticed in the extreme frequency wings. This garbage devours dynamic range and creates converter slew rate overload. Its elimination dramatically improves the performance of any A/D-D/A converter, realized as increased low… READ MORE Why cut these frequencies, don’t we want to leave them all in there until mixdown?
