In this video I discuss the Maag EQ4m and why it is such an important tool in both my mixing studio and my mastering studio. The EQ4m is essentially a 5 fixed bands EQ and a air band that breathes a special kind of air and presence into a song.
MAAG EQ4M FEATURES
The Maag Audio EQ4M is a 6-Band Dual Channel Mastering EQ with AIR BAND® (shelf boost from 2.5 to 40kHz), a true in/out bypass, a transparent INPUT ATTN (attenuator), and stepped (detent) controls.
In 1993, Cliff Maag first introduced the AIR BAND to the audio world in the NTI EQ3. The EQ3 was a dual channel 6-band EQ powered in a 19 inch rack and to this day is hailed as one of the most musical equalizers ever made. Over two decades later, Maag Audio has captured the spirit of the EQ3 in the EQ4M by providing More Power, More Headroom, and More Control than ever before.
The EQ4M rides on extremely clean +/-18v rails without the need of any supporting chassis or power source. Just plug it in and make music.
More power, means more headroom. The EQ4M has an extra 3v compared to the EQ4 and boosts headroom to +29 dBu.
The EQ4M offers more control with its true in/out bypass, a transparent INPUT ATTN (attenuator), and an extra 15 kHz selection on the AIR BAND®. All controls are stepped (detented). The frequency bands mirror the flagship EQ4, with the exception of the added 15kHz selection for the AIR BAND in the EQ4M.
