The TUBE-TECH ME 1B is a passive, all-tube midrange EQ based on the legendary Pultech MEQ5, featuring two boost- and one dip section.
The bandwidth of the ME1B sections is designed broader than in the MEQ5
for ultra-smooth and musical equalization, perfect for vocals,
instruments, speech and all other midrange sources.
Mid frequencies have always been very important, when eqing instruments and vocals to make a mix come together.
TUBE-TECH ME 1B can shape the midrange frequencies in that very pleasant way, only a passive equalizer is capable of.
Even extreme midrange boosts still sound open and warm without the slightest trace of harshness.
ME 1B is the perfect partner for the PE1C program eq and works very well as a bus EQ for many different uses.
ME1B Technical Description
The TUBE-TECH ME 1B is a passive tube based midrange equalizer developed to
match and surpass the demands of even the most discerning studio engineers.
The TUBE-TECH ME 1B Midrange Equalizer contains a low frequency boost section for peaking, a mid frequency attenuation for dipping as well as a high frequency boost section for peaking. The filter section is of the the passive type followed by a tube based push-pull amplifier to restore the gain.
Input and output are balanced as well as fully floating. Input and output transformers come with a static screen between the primary and secondary wirings.
