Product details

LAB:ONE Recordings brings to the rack Black Knight 5 Band EQ.

For those who want to get the most out of equalisation, you can't go wrong with Black Knight. 5 bands, each with 2 selectable modes, full parametric frequency range controls, 7 selectable frequencies per band in two alternative graphic modes, dedicated resonance and gain controls, plus a feed input trim, gain output trim and a pre- or post-EQ saturation control, Black Knight makes your equalization decisions not only easy but enjoyable too.

With each band comes with dedicated CV input sockets for each control, so you can route in your favourite CV modules and signals directly in to Black Knight's frequency, resonance, gain and saturation CV sockets for even more creativity.

The 5 bands are switchable between two modes:

Band 1: EQ or HP Band 2: EQ or LS Band 3: EQ or BP Band 4: EQ or HS Band 5: EQ or LP

Each band resonance control has a range of 0.5 Q (2.5 octaves) to 32 Q (1/22nd octave), and each band gain control has a working range of +/-18dB.

The Feed input and Gain output controls have a range of -36dB to +18dB, which allow greater control when using Black Knight as a distortion effect in conjunction with the band gains and saturation.

The three modes of Black Knight are:

· Parametric (each frequency control has a full audible range working between 20Hz and 20kHz)

· Graphic 1 (each band has 7 selectable ISO frequency settings)

· Graphic 2 (each band has 7 carefully selected frequency settings for more musical sounding equalisation)

These 3 modes give you full control over exactly how you want to use Black Knight and how you want your audio to sound.

With over 140 presets bundled with Black Knight, this EQ is your next 'go to' device for getting your sounds just right. From light surgical presets to down-right brutal and desk-warming to abusive overloading sounds, Black Knight can do it all.

Don't just take our word for it, take Black Knight out for a spin in your rack today*
