Originally designed to replicate the strengths of inductor EQs, the Phoenix Audio DRS-EQ is an incredibly musical 4 band EQ with tremendous versatility. The DRS-EQ's smooth EQ curves combined with the venerable Phoenix Class A Output transformer make the DRS-EQ a perfect tool for bus work, tone shaping individual tracks, or for simply providing a pleasing layer of analog saturation to liven up a sterile in-the-box mix. In this video we used the DRS-EQ on a darker Resonator and electric guitar track to add some top-end clarity, cut some low-mid tubbiness, and provide some pleasing harmonic saturation for a more exciting and mix ready sound. Be sure and request the hi-res audio files by emailing us at proaudio@soundpure.com to hear all the subtle nuances of this fantastic equalizer. If you'd like to demo the Phoenix DRS-EQ in your studio with your gear give the Sound Pure Pro Audio team a call at 919-682-5552 for more information. Additionally if you have any questions about the DRS-EQ or other EQs and recording gear don't hesitate to shoot us an email or give us a ring at anytime. Thanks for watching!   Additional gear used: Apogee Symphony 16x16 I/O Converter Shure KSM313 Ribbon Microphone Neumann TLM 107 LDC Microphone

At the Audio Engineering Society 2011, SoundPure checked out Phoenix Audio's new 500 series DRS-EQ prototype. This new 4 band EQ is designed like a gyrator EQ. This EQ will work with other lunch boxes and will be a great addition to professional or home studios. A pair of these would be great candidates for the mastering process as well.

The Audio Engineering Society Convention 2011 in NY - Day 2 with the SoundPure crew at the Javits Center. Another jam packed day full of new gear being released by some great companies. Waves introduced their new Jack Joseph Puig compressor, a piece of hardware rack mount gear from a popular plug-in company. We also saw demonstrations from Phoenix Audio with their new 500 series EQ. As well as Thermionic Culture's Culture Vulture. It was a busy day 2 at AES, and we'll have more from day 3 coming soon.

The Phoenix Audio DRS-EQ/500 is a mono 4 band EQ for the API 500 series, it was designed to be identical in terms of features and sonics as the other Phoenix products in our range, and the EQ circuit is found in the DRSQ4M mk2 but in a new exciting format.The Gyrator EQ circuit was designed around 40 years ago and was originally designed to emulate the characteristics of a coil or inductor EQ circuit without the issues that they can cause, the result is that our EQ circuit found in the DRSQ4M mk2 is a very powerful but musical EQ perfect for sculpting or crafting vocals, drums or instruments etc whilst still being able to be used on mix bus duties.

The unit runs at 24v thanks due to the special power supply built into the unit so it offers no sonic sacrifices whilst still maintaining a very low current use needed for the API format and is well within its API VPR limits and has been approved by API.
