Great River MEQ-1NV

The Great River MEQ-1NV is the Great River channel strip - discrete Class-A, incredibly versatile. Factory assembled one channel ME-1NV preamp & EQ-1NV equalizer pair.

The EQ-1NV (four-band parametric, true inductor/capacitor, '70's British "1081/1083"-style) is routed via the patch loop jack on the Great River ME-1NV (two-gain-stage, dual-meter, '70's British "1073"-style mic pre).

In this configuration, the EQ is inserted between the mic preamp gain stages, providing a wide range of gain-based effects. With higher input gain / lower output gain, the EQ sections can be driven slightly harder for increased harmonics; with lower input gain / higher output gain, the EQ sounds very transparent. With its ultra-high headroom and ultra-low noise floor, the Great River MEQ-1NV is an indispensable tool for modern recording.
ME-1NV Preamp
  • 'Big Iron Vintage Sound' from custom-wound transformers
  • 'No-latency' output monitoring for DAW users
  • High-Z input is ideal for bass, guitar, and sound modules (FET-buffered and routed into the input transformer, a Great River exclusive)
  • Gain stage monitoring via dual meters (also a Great River exclusive)
  • Ultra quiet noise floor for outstanding performance at any gain setting

  • EQ-1NV Equalizer
  • Balanced +4dBU & -10dBV Unbalanced I/O
  • Multi-purpose: operates with NV Series preamps and as a standalone EQ
  • Effortless sound shaping and frequency manipulation
  • Flexible band use; 1,2,3, or 4 bands can be used simultaneously
  • Simple pushbutton selection between Q positions and peak/shelf
  • Specifications
  • Multiple In/Out connections: XLR balanced; ¼" -10dbV output for 'no-latency' DAW monitoring; high-Z input on front panel (disconnects mic input): TRS ¼ insert patch point for compressor or equalizer ahead of the output amplifier
  • Adjustable gain stages: input in 5db steps to 60db; output from -25 to +10db; maximum overall gain 70db; 2 to 3 stages of single ended solid state amplifier gain blocks, depending on gain structure; high-current 70ma Class A bias on output stage
  • Input and output meters on each channel (dual-stage metering is a Great River exclusive)
  • Front panel switches: polarity; phantom power; input impedance (1200 / 300 ohm); output loading (600 ohm resistor across output transformer)
  • High quality, custom wound Sowter transformers
  • Gold plated switching contacts
  • Local power supply regulation on each channel
  • 110, 220 volts, either 50 or 60 Hz operation with external selection

  • EQ
  • One channel, discrete Class-A design
  • Multiple In/Out connections: XLR balanced line in and out; ¼" -10dbV output for 'no-latency' DAW monitoring; TRS ¼ insert patch point for NV Series mic preamp (inserts EQ between NV preamp gain stages)
  • Wide range of input sensitivity from +8dbm to -20dbm with selection between line in and insert patch point
  • 4 bands independently enabled with +/-15db boost/cut
  • Hi and low bands selectable between peaking and shelving
  • Hi-mid and low-mid bands each have 3 selectable Q positions
  • 3rd order selectable frequency high pass filter
  • Hardwire bypass of equalizer section
  • Internal low-noise shielded power supply (externally selectable for 110 / 220 volt; 50 / 60 Hz)
