ATM Bettermaker™ EQ 230P - analog EQ with digital recall

The sound and features of the ATM Bettermaker™ EQ 230P makes it a great tool for recording, mixing as well as mastering. Having a first rate analog EQ with an A/B comparison function and two parallel outs is an incredible asset. The planned USB connection will make it easy to sync it with your DAW.

From the website:
"The ATM Bettermaker™ EQ 230P is a fully analog stereo equalizer based on legendary designs. Besides it’s pure analog signal path, it has full digital recall with 399 cells for your own presets, which you can recall with one touch. We have also added an A/B comparing function known from plugins.
By building this equalizer we wanted to create a device that would have a maximum range of usage and a very characteristic, but clean sound. We picked out the best of classic designs and modified them to be more practical. As we work faster and faster every day, we need to have the highest quality and the maximum speed we can get."
