In our latest KMR DEMO ROOM video, we put Cranborne Audio's Carnaby 500 Harmonic EQ through its paces...
Cranborne Audio Carnaby 500 is a unique 3-band parametric 500 Series EQ that uses harmonic saturation to boost and cut frequency content.
Carnaby 500 provides three bands of Harmonic EQ™, each with a blend of harmonics to give maximum musicality to their support frequencies:
The HI band ranges from 5 - 25 kHz. Its smooth saturation capability extends high-frequency sounds beyond the human hearing range for maximum realism on vocals and acoustic instruments, such as cymbals or flutes.
The MID band is a peaking filter that emphasises frequencies in the 200Hz - 6.2kHz range, using saturation to add richness to your source material.
The LO band has a frequency range of 420Hz down to 20Hz and uses hard-clipping saturation to increase the low end— ideal for adding subtle warmth or extreme subharmonic distortion.
Unlike other equalisers, Carnaby 500 has a dynamic response - the more you drive the circuits, the more boost/cut and harmonics it produces. The unit is intuitive to use with plenty of visual feedback from the front panel to assist in dialling in optimum settings
