Maselec MEA-2 Precision Stereo Equalizer

A four-band precision analogue equalizer, designed for recording and mastering applications where ultimate sonic performance, musicality and precision are required.

The Maselec MEA-2 Precision Stereo Equalizer, four-band precision analogue equalizer with stepped Q/shelf, frequency and cut/boost controls on each band. It is designed for recording and mastering applications where ultimate sonic performance, musicality and precision are required. Top recording and mastering engineers still use some analogue signal processing equipment, finding the familiar correlation between sound and control better to work with. However, most analogue equalizers have either continuously variable controls, making precise adjustments difficult, or just a few coarsely-stepped controls. Many fail to meet the standards of audio performance consistent with modern demands. The MEA-2 provides fully-stepped controls for precision and repeatability for ALL parameters.

The MEA-2 is extensively used in mastering but also works well on an insertion point in recording or mixing. The MEA-2 has stepped controls with a fine 0.5dB gain adjustment at low cut/boost settings. Maximum cut/boost per band is 8dB. The MEA-2 is an equalizer that can provide precise equalization with minimal side-effects - it is designed to provide a very transparent signal path where only the desired equalization effect is obtained without adding any particular sonic signature.

MEA-2 Key Features

  • Four separate shelf/bell switchable equalizer sections per channel
  • Unique equalization characteristics, optimized through extensive listening tests
  • Precision stepped controls for accuracy and repeatability
  • Overlapping frequency ranges with 84 settings per channel
  • Excellent channel-to-channel matching
  • Interactive cut/boost and bandwidth controls for more natural operation
  • Low noise and wide dynamic range
  • Electronically balanced inputs and outputs
  • Individual EQ sections are completely switched off when the gain controls are set to 0dB
  • Full bypass when the power is turned off

Using the MEA-2

The MEA-2 is a very special Equalizer that has been designed to achieve a certain sound. It has a distinctive character, discernable both sonically and in the unique shape of its EQ curves.

With 4 bands per channel, shelving/peaking/Q selection on each and 84 interleaved frequency settings per channel, the MEA-2 provides great flexibility and precision.

Each channel can be by-passed individually, indicated by illuminated push buttons on the front panel.

The MEA-2 provides the warmth, punch or air you need with a minimum of effort and without compromising the signal path. There's no easy way to describe it though, so contact us now to arrange a demo. Great sounding EQ is right behind the controls!
