Dual - mode EQ
The DEQ can operate in either the graphic or parametric mode. In the graphic EQ mode each channel provides 30 bands with a boost/cut range of +/- 15 dB. In the parametric EQ mode 6 bands are available per channel, each with variable frequency, gain, and bandwidth.
LPF, HPF, and Four Notch Filters per Channel
In both the graphic and parametric modes, the left and right channels feature independently programmable high-pass and low-pass filters as well as a group of four notch filters with variable frequency and bandwidth.
Superior Audio Quality
110-dB signal-to-noise ratio and precise response 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Top-quality electronic devices, no-compromise design, and the implementation of top-performance A/D and D/A converters.
Up to 40 complete equalizer setups - graphic or parametric EQ mode - can be stored in internal RAM memory and recalled as needed.
Independently Programmable Channel Delays
Each channel provides a variable delay parameter that can be used for phase alignment, speaker distance compensation, and other applications. The delay range is from 0 to 656 milliseconds, adjustable in 0.021-millisecond steps for precise control.
Automatic Hum and Noise Canceler
The DEQ5 includes an independent notch filter system that can be used to effectively cancel AC line hum... including harmonics. Also, automatic mode hum frequency is automatically detected and the filter is set accordingly.
Analog and Direct Digital I/O
The DEQ5 has been designed to accept both analog and digital input signals. All analog inputs and outputs are electronically balanced via reliable XLR type connectors, while direct digital audio input is accepted in AES/EBU or Yamaha Y2 format.
Time-code Event Control
A built-in time-code reader and time-code event control function make the DEQ5 an ideal choice for automated recording and mixdown applications.
The interface allows EQ programs to be recalled and parameter changes to be made from a MIDI sequencer, computer or similar device.
The key sets all gain parameters to "0" in one operation.
Digital input and output attenuators
Manual or automatic de-emphasis control
Bit shift function
Compensates for clock signal cable delays.
