Mukilteo, WA (October 1, 2007)--The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office has granted US Patent 7,266,205, "Linearized Filter Band Equipment and Processes," to inventor Ray Miller and assignee Rane Corporation.
The technologies that were patented form the heart of Rane's live sound graphic EQs, the DEQ 60 and DEQ 60L, as well as the graphic EQ building blocks found in their Drag Net software controlled RPM series Programmable Multiprocessor DSP units. The technologies also drive the Serato Rane Series Graphic Equalizer Pro Tools plug-in for the Digidesign ICON and is bundled with VENUE consoles.
This new technology is said to allow the creation of a true "graphic" equalizer, where output response would reportedly precisely match its slider settings. More details are available as a "RaneNote" at the company's website
