The Pivot Tone Channel/500 Mono Class-A Pivot EQ/DI from Phoenix Audio boasts an ultra-high impedance DI, an electronically balanced line input stage, and a fully discrete DSOP-2 Class-A output stage that is combined with an intuitive pivot EQ. It can be used to tilt the entire audio-frequency spectrum back and forth in broadcast and recording studio applications.
The Pivot Tone uses discrete Class-A circuits and delivers hi-fi sound that makes any line input or DI signal sound lush, full, and coherent. Center frequencies are set at 160 Hz, 800 Hz, and 1.6 kHz, offering three strategically placed points for an intuitive, musical user experience. You choose the center frequency and then simply tilt the entire frequency spectrum to taste. Brightening boosts everything above the chosen center frequency while simultaneously attenuating everything below it; darkening, boosts bass while attenuating treble.
Furthermore, the output attenuator on the Pivot Tone makes driving the output stage for different tone characteristics simple and fun—just back off on input levels for cleaner tones, or drive harder for more warmth and saturation. The 10-segment LED meter will help you set the perfect output level with no fuss.
In addition, the ultra-high impedance (10 MOhm) DI will never roll off highs or slow down bass, and this assures that the EQ section and the output stage see the most robust signal possible from all your DI'd instruments. Finally, the Pivot Tone's added tone control and saturation possibilities make this DI feel more like using a great amplifier.
