RANE DUAL CH 30 BAND EQ
The ME 60S Stereo Constant-Q Equalizer is a two-channel, 1/3-octave design, housed in a two rack-space unit. It features a Range switch for high slider resolution in the ±6 dB mode as well as ±12 dB mode to give you a wide range of control over system audio.
To create the ME 60S, Rane combined two ME 30 equalizers in one unit and then embellished it with two adjustable band-limiting filters on the low and high end.
Its active filter sections boast innovative constant-Q (constant bandwidth) design, which means the bandwidth of each individual filter is guaranteed to be narrow enough to prevent unwarranted interaction between filters, yet wide enough to produce exactly the type of correction curve demanded by even the most unusual acoustic surroundings. No longer will you have to deal with unstable bandwidth when changing boost/cut mounts!
Front panel controls and indicators include an overall rotary Level control for each channel as well as Overload indicators. Passive pushbutton Bypass switches feature LED indicators, avoiding ambiguity by being on when the unit is bypassed. (A passive bypass switch requires no power to operate. This allows completion of the audio path should power fail in the ME 60S.)
The rear of the ME 60S provides an unusually flexible array of connector choices. Inputs and Outputs are electronically balanced designs, capable of unbalanced operation when required. They accept and drive all possible signal levels into normal load impedances. Balanced applications choose between the XLR or 1/4″ Tip-Ring-Sleeve balanced connectors. Unbalanced sources also may tie to the ME 60S through mono 1/4″ connectors (no ring connection).
