Excellent EQ!

By Jeff

from Merced, CA

Comments about ART XL231 Dual 31-Band, 1/3 Octave, Graphic EQ:

This is a very quiet, very effective surgical EQ that doesn't create any awful byproducts along with the desired results. All the usual graphic EQ functions are there, and the extras (enhanced cut, high abd low rotary trims) are useful and musical. You can do corrections and enhancements with this graphic that you cannot do with other graphics.
This has the normal graphic features, but also adds very broad but shallow "tone control" trims, and has a unique "enhanced cut" setting that can be used to make deeper but narrower EQ cuts. The extra features give choices and add flexibility that aren't available from other manufacturers. The extras are not flash or hype. I've used or tried all the features in recording, mixing and mastering. They are musical and effective individually and in every combination I've tried.
I don't know if you can drop this out of a moving truck without damage, but it seems well-made.
This is better than any graphic I've used at any price. I'm thinking of buying at least one more.

Great unit, great value

Comments about ART XL231 Dual 31-Band, 1/3 Octave, Graphic EQ:

This has everything I need in a graphic EQ, and nothing I don't (but unused Euroblock connections). Excellent dynamic range-S/N Ratio; has plenty of voltage to drive anything. The Extended Cut is great for tuning out peaks in speaker/room response w/o destroying the rest of the mix. Hi & Lo Trim is useful, and variable HPF is good but I wish it were 18dB or more slope. The Peak Hold meters work well. Decent internal parts too. Sliders are a bit stiff at first, but that's probably normal. The blue LED's are brighter than the others but to dim them just cover with tape. Other gripes: the hash marks for level increments are gray and somewhat hard to see; no rubber feet are supplied for stacking so it slides if not rack-mounted.Overall, a very good design and great sound in real-world use. If this were a Rane or Ashly, it'd cost 2x as much!

enhanced cut = enhanced stage

By Jeff-JAmNl

from New Albany, IN

Comments about ART XL231 Dual 31-Band, 1/3 Octave, Graphic EQ:

I put this GEQ on my monitor mixes and spent 10 or 15 minutes ringing out the stage, and it has made a huge difference in my stage monitor volume before feedback. The chassis feels sturdy and the faders do not get bumped out of position easily. I wish the pot knobs had center detents, and the blue LEDs for enhanced cut mode are way too bright; but overall I am very happy with my investment in the XL231.
