Chop Shop EQ Features
Intuitive filter that focuses the energy in a source on the bass or treble ranges of the sound. Apparent loudness of source is maintained constant for meaningful A/B comparisons. SHIFT switch decreases turnover frequency for a different midrange response.
12 dB/oct filter that rolls off low frequencies, variable 20 to 530 Hz. Jumper selectable ‘Lo-Rider’ mode transforms LO-CUT section into a low-frequency hi-cut section with variable resonance (hint: try this on a front of kick or Subkick mic and blend back in for incredibly deep and massive low end).
Variable resonance control for LO-CUT that adds a resonant ‘bump’ at the corner frequency. Response from Bessel (full CCW), to Butterworth (12 noon), to slightly resonant (0.5 dB full CW). MORE switch increases resonance dramatically… sometimes MORE is more.
Transforms entire LO-CUT section into a low-frequency centered low pass filter with variable resonance. The LED icon will change accordingly. The frequency knob now sets cut-off frequency above which audio will be rolled off. Blend with the non-low passed signal via the MIX fader for massive sounding low end. This can be very useful on kick drums and bass sounds. This was a hidden feature on the hardware.
6 dB/oct filter that rolls off high frequencies, variable 500 Hz to 25 kHz. 0.5X switch shifts frequency range one octave lower, while simultaneously increasing slope to 12 dB/oct and adding slight resonance at corner frequency to retain apparent brightness. This resonance can be switched off if needed.
