The Circuit

The first stage of the Stereo Dynamic Asymmetrical Equalizer consists of a peak/bell filter, which will operate in the Low Mid or Low frequency spectrum, depending on the setting.

The second stage, with the filters in series, consists of a peak/bell filter, which will operate in the High Mid/High frequency spectrum, depending on the setting.

While the filter design in itself bears no resemblance to the design of the Dynamic Shelving Filters in the GOLY DSEQ, the basic mechanics of the side chains are the same on the two units.

The dynamic sections on each filter will let you vary the attack and release times, as well as the dynamic hold, while the soft/hard switch takes you from a low, soft knee ratio, useful for subtle sculpting, to a higher, harder knee ratio, with a high end roll off on the side chain, for a bit more bite and grab.


The Philosophy

The DAQ was originally conceived to complement the DSQ, and since it is the younger sibling, it is hard to describe it in a vacuum.

The older sister, the DSEQ, has a very peculiar and pleasing distortion characteristic, which lends itself to broad strokes of tonal shaping, tape like emulations, and it will let you push your loudness curves a little farther than you would usually be able to go, due to the dynamic hold.

The DAQ fills in the gaps. It is a much cleaner design in terms of sonics, and while it can easily do broader strokes, the design and interface is tilted towards surgical types of tonal shaping, which are virtually impossible to achieve on the DSQ.

During the development of the DAQ, the feedback from the engineers listening and commenting turned out some really interesting features and controls, and with a “more is more” approach (The DSQ had a “less is more” approach”), there was a high degree of implementation, which will be covered on the coming pages.

First batch went out to a few dealers this week.

Thanks!

Its not like the PG, but Bob Macc at Subvert Mastering has both, so you can check with him for comparisons.

A few more people will have the set when this month is over, so Im sure itll pop up on the radar here and there.
