Red Queen 10-Band 3-Mode Equalizer, brought to you by Lab:One Recordings, is a totally new powerhouse EQ for the rack; a unit designed to cover all your possible needs, including colouring your sound to give it character, surgical corrective work for those tricky frequencies, and to become a creative filtering device for those extra special effects.

10 Bands, 3 Equalizer Modes, 9 filter types, and up to 6* internal processing paths per EQ mode are at your disposal, plus the ability to record non-destructive MIDI automation with the additional Consort MIDI Recording Control Unit, Red Queen has far more to offer than most - totalling more than 800 controls under the hood, Red Queen is one for your toolbox, whatever you use her for - totally your freedom to colour, control and create.

Master Controls are also available to effect globally your audio signals:

  • FEED INPUT: pre-EQ input feed trim control, ranging from -60dB to +30dB, to ensure your original signal is up to level.
  • GAIN OUTPUT: from -60dB to +30dB to confidently control your final output.
  • WET/DRY: from full effect of the EQ and filters to back-to-original-signal and everything in between.
  • SCALE: with a range of +-200%, this affects how much your filter gains are affected, so either at defalt (+100), double strength (+200%), or EQ curve inversion so your EQ curve is completely the opposite (positive gains become negative, negative becomes positive).
  • HI CUT and LOW CUT FILTERS: ranging from 20Hz to 20kHz, and with slope controls from 6dB to 36dB, allowing smooth filter roll off the frequencies.
  • EQUALIZER CHANNEL: allows access to the controls for the specifically chosen EQ 'channel', so you can hot-swap between settings, and recall when you come back - 20 possible channels.
  • EQUALIZER MODE: this sets the mode of Red Queen, and also indicates which channels effect the signal. 13 possible modes are available, incorporating standard stereo-linked controls, separated stereo controls, mid-side linked controls and mid-side unlinked controls, for total signal path manipulation.

Mode 1: Graphic Equalization
10 bands with 5 frequencies per band and 3 resonance settings per band are available, plus the option to select the one of nine filter types per band; ideal for colouring your sound during mixing or mastering stages. There are 6 possible signal processing routes available for Graphic Equalization:

  • STEREO LINKED (both left and right channels processed as one).
  • LEFT / RIGHT (independent signal processing).
  • MID / SIDE (independent mid & side processing).
  • MID L / MID R / SIDE (independent MID Left and MID Right manipulation and SIDE processed).
  • MID / SIDE L / SIDE R (independent SIDE Left and SIDE Right manipulation and MID processed).
  • MID L / MID R / SIDE L / SIDE R (totally independent MID Left, MID Right, SIDE Left and SIDE Right controls for complete MID-SIDE-LEFT-RIGHT signal manipulation).

Mode 2: Parametric Equalization
10 bands with a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz for each band, free-setting resonance controls (ranging between 0.5Q = 2.5 octave to 32Q = 1/22nd octave), plus the option to select one of nine filter types per band; a perfect solution to manage your key frequency areas and ideal for corrective and filtering tasks. There are 6 possible signal processing routes for Parametric Equalization:

  • STEREO LINKED (both left and right channels processed as one).
  • LEFT / RIGHT (independent signal processing).
  • MID / SIDE (independent mid & side processing).
  • MID L / MID R / SIDE (independent MID Left and MID Right manipulation and SIDE processed).
  • MID / SIDE L / SIDE R (independent SIDE Left and SIDE Right manipulation and MID processed).
  • MID L / MID R / SIDE L / SIDE R (totally independent MID Left, MID Right, SIDE Left and SIDE Right controls for complete MID-SIDE-LEFT-RIGHT signal manipulation).

Mode 3: Zplane Filter Equalization
10 bands with a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz for each band, free-setting resonance controls (ranging between 0.5Q = 2.5 octave to 32Q = 1/22nd octave), plus the option to select one of nine filter types per band, and a 10 band mod-matrix for setting your two parametric style eq curves and a mod wheel control to interpolate (aka morph) between filter frequency, filter resonance, filter gain and filter type (yes filter type.) - the perfect solution for creative filtering and morphing. ZPlane filtering is only available as stereo processing.

The 9 filter types available for each band are:

  1. LP - Low Pass filter.
  2. LS - Low Shelf filter.
  3. EQ - Peaking filter (boost/cut at centre frequency).
  4. HS - High Shelf filter.
  5. HP - High Pass filter.
  6. AP2 - All Pass filter type 2.
  7. AP1 - All Pass filter type 1.
  8. BP - Band Pass filter.
  9. BR - Band Reject filter.

These filters when used correctly can create you own custom formants as well as your own phaser bank.

You also get the HEAR EQ control: get to hear what you are adding or taking away from your signal in isolation for the context. Idea for finding sibilance in vocals, or pin-pointing your instruments.

Additionally, Consort aids with those MIDI recording controls - link a knob to any of the 420 controls and freely record your MIDI tweaks without affecting your initial EQ settings, or use in conjunction with your EQ setup as an A-B comparison EQ... or dive right in and mess with your Zplane filter start and end points with MIDI and morph your morph**.

Don't just take our word for it - check the videos and hear the sound examples for some of the things you can do with Red Queen.

RED QUEEN 10 BAND 3 MODE EQUALIZER is on special offer until end of November 2013 - intro price of €39 / $49, increasing to €55 / $69.

See Lab:One Recordings ReQ·131 31 Band Equalizer, or you can buy both in a special bundle package (coming soon).

Watch out for upcoming tutorial videos on each of the modes of Red Queen, the signal paths available and much more.

* up to 6 internal processing paths for Graphic or Parametric modes only. Zplane mode operates on stereo signals only.

** only the available controls will be affected.
