Hi,

the vintage WSWeQ released.

WSW eQ
As beautiful looking as it sounds, this was exclusively hand-built in small numbers in the early to mid 60's for Austrian broadcast by WSW. Built using components of the highest quality available at the time along with as much iron, transformers and inductors as you can dream of, and still fitted with coveted germanium transistors! This oldest built WSW eQ has a sound character with addictive qualities, it adds a lovely richness and contour/body to anything you put through it with a sweet “airy” top end and powerful, huge low end. The mid frequency band does little miracles, especially to lead vocals or instruments. Additionally, there's a passive (LCR) low-cut filter included to clear out the mud whenever there is just too much going on.

Two units, previously refurbished, have been sampled in stereo.

. High Quality programs with full dynamics and harmonic content
. Special light edition "le" programs (CPU friendly)
. Resonant High Pass Filter -12dB/oct at 60 and 120Hz
. Combo Low and High Shelf at 60Hz and 12kHz +/- 15dB
. Mid bell fixed 1k, 1.4k, 2k, 2.8k, 4k, 5.6kHz + 9dB
. Generic new AlexB skin for N3 and N4

Please, check the website and download the user manual and try the demo.

Oh for crying out loud. :D The demos sound really nice. Gives snares a nice pop and both the filter and shelf have a nice smooth rich sound. I'll pick this up.... :)

The units sampled are showed in the pic on the 1st post. It is the 1st release of this equalizer and it is VERY RARE to find it, only a few units has been built (hand-built).
If you look inside at you can see that this very first release is different in circuit and components.
