The Radial Engineering Q3 Induction Coil EQ has been formatted to fit the popular 500 series format and the Radial Workhorse. It is designed to accentuate the character of a voice or instrument without introducing the artifacts and phase anomalies commonly associated with typical gyrator (resistor-capacitor) equalizer circuits.
The Q3 features 4 easy-to-use controls: top-end boost, mid-range cut, low-frequency bass boost, and gain make-up to offset the signal loss that occurs when using passive equalization. Each of the 3 EQ bands employs a 12-position Grayhill switch with a different preset curve at each position. These are carefully crafted to introduce subtle accents, huge hype, and warm-sounding cuts that will flatter and enthrall.
Each EQ setting is augmented with a miniature toggle switch that enables you to attenuate the curve for more subtle effects, delivering over 10,000 combinations of tonal bliss. And because presets are employed, it is easy to recreate favorite patches by setting the dials with easy-to-remember 3-number combinations.
Adapted for use with the Radial Workhorse and older API Lunchbox racks, the Q3 Induction Coil EQ is plug-and-play and easy to use. Simply feed it with a balanced line-level signal and you are set to go. When connected to a Workhorse, the Omniport is assigned as an effects loop to allow various processing devices to be inserted into the EQ signal chain.
