Dangerous Music has begun shipping its new stereo Dangerous BAX EQ to international distributors and U.S. dealers in quantities. The one-rack space unit is designed for use in mastering and as a final mix bus shelving EQ.
According to Dangerous Music, the company built the BAX in response to demand from a professional studio community searching for a broad-stroke sonic sculpting tool with a unique signature. The Dangerous design team took inspiration from the classic “Baxandall” shelving curves of the ’60s and ’70s to create “a high-fidelity equalizer with a 21st century mastering aesthetic.”
“The BAX EQ focuses on clarity, ultra-low distortion and extremely low noise so, in addition to its obvious application on stereo program material, it also sits comfortably in a high-performance mic/mic pre chain without lowering the quality or changing the character of any units’ natural sound,” states company-provided product details. “The EQ curves are perfect for ‘gentling up’ an overly bright condenser mic or for adding ‘air’ to a ribbon mic.”
Main features of the Dangerous BAX EQ include stepped controls throughout for repeatability and identical stereo operation; broad Q shelving; 7-position high- and low-pass filters; 2-pole Butterworth configuration (12 dB/oct); 8-position high- and low-frequency select; and +/- 5 dB Cut and Boost controls in 1/2 dB steps.
