are the green eq level dials accurate...?

Post by dirtrobot » Sat Oct 10, 2020 2:46 am

Hi,
I was trying to use the green eqst (true stereo) to boost the bass in my drum bus, so I set the Q to shelf and even though db knob says +12 I'm barely hearing any difference.
So I threw some pink noise at it, same process and the only boost I can see is like 3db, if that. Same with the green mix eq. Is this the intended behaviour? I see in the manual it says +/- 12db cut/boost.

Cheers,

i think you should definitely open a support ticket as this behavior isn't accurate. however, there is more info needed to determine if something else isn't affecting the signal. hopefully, aa support can shed light on it once you give them all of the info they'll request when you open the ticket.

please keep us posted if you can...

Try more accurate methods as double FFT or stating impulse responses.
