The Dangerous Music BAX EQ is a professional, stand-alone equalizer that utilizes the famous Baxandall curves, originally designed by electronics legend Peter Baxandall. The BAX EQ stands out as the first EQ to leverage these curves independently. Designed by renowned engineer Chris Muth, this EQ has become a classic in the realms of mixing, mastering, and tracking.
The EQ is based on the classic bass and treble tone controls with gently sweeping shelves known as the Baxandall Curves. These curves are famous for their ability to improve the sound of audio sources.
The BAX EQ is built with audiophile-grade components to ensure high-quality sound reproduction.
The EQ features stepped controls for accuracy and repeatability, allowing precise adjustments.
The Q-shelving provides a natural, open, and transparent sound. The broad and gentle EQ curves allow for subtle yet profound control over wide sections of the frequency spectrum.
Phase Coherent Filters:
The EQ includes 7-position phase-coherent high-pass and low-pass filters on relays, enhancing filtering capabilities.
An 8-position high- and low-frequency selection allows users to tailor the EQ to specific frequency ranges.
Cut and Boost Controls:
5dB cut and boost controls in 1/2dB steps provide precise control over the EQ adjustments.
Paradox of Transparency:
The BAX EQ maintains phase coherence, avoiding phase delay and other audible artifacts associated with coloration. It offers real analog transparency, allowing powerful changes without substantially altering the original sound.
The EQ is equipped with sophisticated cut filters on both ends of the spectrum, allowing for the removal of unwanted frequencies below 12 Hz and above 70 kHz.
The BAX EQ is versatile and can be used for tracking, mixing, and mastering. It provides effortless sweetening and deepening of music, akin to high-quality bass-treble controls.
The BAX EQ embodies the Dangerous Music philosophy, incorporating sophisticated circuit design, uncompromising quality, and an elegant, straightforward user interface.
The Dangerous Music BAX EQ is a powerful and versatile equalizer designed for audio professionals who seek to enhance the sonic qualities of their mixes, masters, or individual tracks. Its unique Baxandall Curves, transparency, and sophisticated features make it a standout choice for those who prioritize sonic excellence in their audio processing chain.
