Bettermaker EQ 542 Remote

Stereo analog parametric equalizer with plugin recall

in 500 format, remote version.


 

 

 

Besides their pure analog signal paths, the units communicate with you DAW via USB and are fully recallable via plugin in your host.

You can save your settings in your D.A.W….AND… in your project with your AUTOMATION.

Another important thing is that when working with EQ542 Remote, you are always in your sweet spot.

Remote version means that the EQ has no front controls and all operations are made form your DAW.

By building these equalizers, Bettermaker wanted to create devices that would have a maximum range of usage and a very characteristic, but clean sound. We picked out the best classic designs and modified them to be more practical. As we  work faster and faster every day, we need to have the highest quality and maximum speed we can get. That was the main motivation to develop the Bettermaker EQ 542 Remote.


Here are some of Bettermaker’s EQ 542 features:

  • Stereo Parametric section, two parametric filters offered in combined, matched stereo/dual mono.
  • High pass section, 24 dB/oct filter with selectable frequency
  • Low pass section, 12 dB/oct filter with selectable frequency
  • Global hard bypass as well as hard bypass on every channel
  • Full digital recall with 399 cells for your own presets.
  • USB link to use the EQ’s just as you would use a plugin, including Automation.
  • Free AU, VST, RTAS, AAX soon, 32 & 64 bit plugin controller
  • Steel screen isolators for maximum separation of digital and analog sections
  • You can connect up to 99 EQ542′s to one D.A.W. and control them with dedicated plugins. (At this time, there can be connected up to two Bettermaker EQ500 series products for one USB port).
