xfilter Mastering Edition
4-Band Analog Stereo Equalizer
Stereo Link and Precise Control Range
It all started with Bob Katz’s idea of tweaking his own xfilter. So Ruben surely took this pretty serious and spend some time for tweaking components on the circuit board until he and of course Bob were 100% convinced with the overall sound by checking serval recordings in our elysia Class-A Lounge – Studio in Nettetal, Germany.
Now the result: The xfilter Mastering Edition is a very sophisticated, handcrafted analog stereo 4-band equalizer, with both channels linked for stereo operation. All four bands provide a precise control range of +/-5dB.
This fine Stereo Mastering EQ produces the high-end sound of a Class A equalizer at an amazing value for the money. He produces an absolutely precise stereo image based on the use of computer-selected components with extremely low tolerances.
5 reasons why you should use the xfilter Mastering Edition
even there are many more!
The xfilter Mastering Edition, just like all our products, is designed, engineered and handcrafted in Germany.
Consequently represents the art of discrete signal processing.
True Stereo Link
As one of the few exceptions in the market, the xfilter processes both of its channels with just one set of controllers – a true stereo linked EQ.
The xfilter Mastering Edition offers a precise control range of all four bands of +/-5dB.
Equipped with a balanced output stage with up to +27dBu for Mastering purposes.
True Stereo Operation
Using an analog EQ on a stereo buss can be quite tricky, as only very few units offer the possibility to link their two mono channels for true stereo processing.
As a result, the user needs to fiddle around with many knobs in order to cope with the tedious task of matching the settings for both channels as good as possible. The problem gets only worse when the controllers do not have any steps for reference.
But while there are so many compressors in the market that can be linked for stereo operation, why are there almost no EQs which can do this, too? One of the main answers is component tolerances. Obviously, you want the two linked channels to behave exactly the same, but the natural tolerances that especially potentiometers and capacitors have counteract this ideal characteristic.
To make a long story short: The xfilter Mastering Edition solves this problem by using computer-selected dual and quad layer pots as well as special low tolerance caps.
