The MEA-2 is a stereo or 2-channel, four-band precision analogue equalizer with stepped
Q/shelf, extra line, frequency and cut/boost controls on each band. It is designed for recording
and mastering applications where ultimate sonic performance, musicality and precision are
Top recording and mastering engineers still use some analogue signal processing equipment,
finding the familiar correlation between sound and control better to work with. However, most
analogue equalizers have either continuously variable controls, making precise adjustments
difficult, or just a few coarsely-stepped controls. Many fail to meet the standards of audio
performance consistent with digital media. The MEA-2 provides fully-stepped controls for
precision and repeatability for ALL parameters.
The MEA-2 is extensively used in mastering but also works well on an insertion point in
recording or mixing. The MEA-2 has stepped controls with a fine 0.5dB gain adjustment at low cut/boost settings. Maximum cut/boost per band is 8dB.
The MEA-2 is an equalizer that can provide precise equalization with minimal side-effects - it is
designed to provide a very transparent signal path where only the desired equalization effect is
obtained without adding any particular sonic signature.
