■ Rupert EQ 773
Rupert EQ 773 is a processor that emulates the equalizer section built into numerous classic
consoles developed by Rupert Neve during the 1960s and 1970s. It accurately models this peerless
EQ that is loved by engineers around the world and has been used on numerous historic sessions.
With a distinctive EQ curve and rich overtones, this unit is notable for the way in which slight
adjustments in the gain can produce vivid changes in the sound's expressiveness and sense of
airiness. Even large EQ boosts do not fatigue the ear, but still allow the musical component of the
source to be emphasized.
When the EQ is used to cut, or when the HPF is turned on, the sound becomes solid, yet without
impairing the presence of that region, allowing you to control the tone while preserving the musical
balance. Also, the EQ precisely emulates the input and output circuits that make lavish use of audio
transformers and discrete class-A amps (which are the signature of Rupert Neve). Simply passing the
signal through these circuits enhances the solidity of the sound, letting you obtain the depth and
spaciousness associated with the Rupert Neve sound.
