Post by Support » Tue Nov 25, 2014 1:06 pm

Basic UI control elements

1. Gain in-out & general power switch.
2. Filter sections & power switches. (1)
3. EQ bands controls.
4. EQ bands power switches.
5. EQ bands filter type switches.
6. Meters. (1)


Detailed UI control elements

1. Gain in-out & power switch
Gain in and gain out setup in and out gains from -192 dB to +6 dB.
Power switch enable and disable internal bypass.

2. High pass filter
Power toggle switch enable and disable hi pass filter.
Low pass filter is 18 dB/octave filter with five positions at: 22 Hz, 39 Hz, 68 Hz, 120 Hz and 220 Hz.

3. Low pass filter
Power toggle switch enable and disable low pass filter.
Hi pass filter is 60 to 18 dB/octave filter with five positions at: 18 kHz, 12 kHz, 9 kHz, 7.5 kHz and 6 kHz.

4. Frequency control
Frequency control is steeped and each band provides a wide range of overlapping and interleaving frequency choices. Due the passive design each switch position is selecting a different capacitor and inductor.
Available frequencies are:
Low band (28 Hz to 1500 Hz): 28 Hz, 38 Hz, 68 Hz, 100 Hz, 150 Hz, 220 Hz, 330 Hz, 470 Hz, 680 Hz, 1 kHz and 1.5 kHz.
Low-mid band (82 Hz to 3900 Hz): 82 Hz, 120 Hz, 180 Hz, 270 Hz, 390 Hz, 580 Hz, 820 Hz, 1.2 kHz, 1.8 kHz, 2.7 kHz and 3.9 kHz.
High-mid band (200 Hz to 10 kHz): 200 Hz, 300 Hz, 420 Hz, 600 Hz, 900 Hz, 1.5 kHz, 2.2 kHz, 3.3 kHz, 4.7 kHz, 6.8 kHz and 10 kHz.
High band (650 Hz to 27 kHz): 650Hz, 900 Hz, 1.2 kHz, 2.2 kHz, 3.2 kHz, 4.7 kHz, 6.5 kHz, 10 kHz, 12 kHz, 18 kHz and 27 kHz.

5. Bandwidth control
Bandwidth control provides a similar "Q" control found in many parametric equalizers but due the unique way that works, in both Bell and Shelf modes, the more appropriate name is bandwidth control. In bell modes bandwidth control will work similar to most "Q" controls, the wider shape it is fully counterclockwise and narrower shape is fully clockwise.

6. Gain control
Gain control provide boost and/or cut amount and work different from parametric equalizers. The maximum boost and cut is fully clockwise and it is flat at fully counterclockwise. Maximum boost or cut can be up to 20 dB but it depends the bandwidth control due the fair amount of interaction between both controls, so you shouldn't expect the same value of boost or cut in each particular gain control value.

7. EQ filter type toggle switches
Shelf and bell filter type toggle switches are available only in the lowest and highest bands and permit setup the selected band as a shelf and bell shape. The two mid-bands can be only bell shape.

8. EQ boost or cut toggle switch
Boost and cut toggle switch is available in each of the four bands and permit select whether that band will boost or cut.

9. Meters (1)
In and out meters are stereo 12 segments meter and they are setup as volume unit (VU) meters but values are in full scale commonly used in digital domain. In meter is post gain in and out meter is post gain out.

(1) Those UI elements are not present in Magenta EQ LT UI.
