The Joemeek twinQ2 is a dual-mono preamp and channel strip that's equipped with a comprehensive set of useful features. An updated version of the original twinQ, it improves on its predecessor by providing increased headroom and level, and more flexible routing of line-level signals.

Joemeek designed the preamp section for low noise and sonic purity. For each channel you get an XLR mic input, a 1/4" balanced line input, and a front-panel 1/4" high-impedance instrument input. The mic inputs are routed through high-quality Cinemag transformers, which provide pleasing sonic coloration. By activating the IRON switch, you can route line-level sources through the transformers. A Preamp Gain control is provided for adjusting the amount of amplification. A switchable high-pass filter helps eliminate rumble, pops, and handling noise.

A 3-band "Meequalizer" EQ is available on each channel, offering sweepable low and mid bands, and a high band with a selectable center frequency of 6 or 12 kHz. Each channel is also equipped with a full-featured optical compressor that includes Compress (threshold), Slope (ratio), Attack, Release, and Makeup Gain controls. Activating the Comp Link button couples the two channel's Compress, Attack, and Release controls, which helps prevent image shifts when inputting stereo signals. Large and accurate VU meters can be set to display output level, preamp level, or gain reduction.

The twinQ2 offers a range of output options: Each channel has XLR and 1/4" analog outputs, as well as AES/EBU, S/PDIF, and optical digital outputs. A Wordclock input on a BNC connector allows synchronization with an external clock source.
