500 EQ one

4-band EQ module in the 500-series format.

"Given the quality of both sound and construction, all these modules are a steal at the asking price — especially when you consider that Ocean Audio's products are hand-crafted in the UK. Just as I'd anticipated, both the Mic Pre and the EQ modules have proven themselves to be really versatile and useful tools over the few months that I've had the opportunity to test them."
Sound on Sound magazine - July 2013


    The 500 EQ one is a classic Equaliser module.
    It offers the Malcolm Toft Signature Sound for the 500-series.
    Some of the highlights of the 500 EQ one :
    * Classic EQ design
    * 4-band sweep EQ
    * High and low ranges switchable to peak or shelf
    * Overlapping frequencies, chosen to be extremely musical
    * Peak indicator & illuminated bypass
    * Balanced input and output
    * Designed by Malcolm Toft
    * Hand-crafted and hand-wired by Ocean Audio

    While the standard versions are with black faceplate and knobs, we also produced a Limited Edition Series with grey faceplate.
    Only 100 of the Limited Series were produced, each of them was personally signed by Malcolm.

    July 2013 - Sound on Sound review of the Ocean Audio 500 series modules

    Sound on Sound magazine published a great review of our 500 series modules.

    Sound on Sound's Conclusion:
    Given the quality of both sound and construction, all these modules are a steal at the asking price — especially when you consider that Ocean Audio's products are hand-crafted in the UK. Just as I'd anticipated, both the Mic Pre and the EQ modules have proven themselves to be really versatile and useful tools over the few months that I've had the opportunity to test them. The mixing/summing system, though, is something that's rather more special. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities in the 500-series format, and enables you to build and expand a high-quality mixing system in a piecemeal fashion.
