RANE GE 130 Single-Channel, 30-Band, 1/3-Octave Graphic Equalizer
The Rane GE 130 is a single-channel, 30-band, 1/3-octave graphic equalizer. It features +12/-15 dB boost/cut range on 45 mm filter slider controls. The unit is 2 rack spaces high and only 5 inches deep.
The active filter sections feature Rane's innovative constant-Q (constant bandwidth) design. This means the bandwidth of each individual filter is guaranteed to be narrow enough to prevent unwarranted interaction between filters, yet wide enough to produce exactly the type of correction curve demanded by even the most unusual acoustic surroundings. This differs dramatically from conventional designs of the past, encumbered with the unfortunate characteristic of changing bandwidth when changing boost/cut amounts.
Front panel controls and indicators, aside from the sliders, include an overall Level control as well as an Overload indicator. A Bypass switch allows direct comparison between the equalized and non-equalized signal. The rear of the unit provides both XLR and easy Euroblock terminal connectors for the fully active balanced Inputs and Outputs. Output relays provide a brief turn-on delay, eliminating power-up thumps, and a hard-wire bypass in case of power failure.
