TransAudio Group, U.S. distributor of world-class audio recording equipment, introduces the Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer. Marek Walaszek is its inventor and the founder of the Bettermaker brand of pure analog signal path processors controlled by digital plug-in recall and automation – the best of both worlds! Currently shipping, the Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer is configured for stereo, dual mono, or M/S operation and features four parametric bands, low- and high-cutoff filters, and a passive Pultec-style section with “air bands” at 23kHz and 28kHz.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: TransAudio Group, U.S. distributor of world-class audio recording equipment, introduces the Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer. Marek Walaszek is its inventor and the founder of the Bettermaker brand of pure analog signal path processors controlled by digital plug-in recall and automation – the best of both worlds! Currently shipping, the Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer is configured for stereo, dual mono, or M/S operation and features four parametric bands, low- and high-cutoff filters, and a passive Pultec-style section with “air bands” at 23kHz and 28kHz.

“The Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer is one of the most, if not the most versatile analog equalizers on the market,” Walaszek said. “We tapped all of our company’s experience to create a flexible equalizer that will sound stunning and allow engineers to work quickly, accurately, and repeatably. A combination of different filters, M/S matrix, the only analog 24dB/oct high-pass filter on the market, digital RTA and curve representation, and, of course, Bettermaker’s signature plug-in control, recall, and automation, make the Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer a truly innovative multi-tool.”

The Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer’s analog signal-path specs alone would make it a world-class processor: four parametric equalization bands (two of which can be toggled to shelving), a low-cut filter with adjustable resonance, a passive Pultec-style section, and two “air bands”, all built to exacting standards using the best of classic and contemporary engineering and materials sourcing. This is zero-compromise, high-end analog circuitry at its best.

Bettermaker takes that solid foundation and makes it even better (the brand name makes sense, right?). A comprehensive digital control workflow includes a five-inch touchscreen with “plug-in style” EQ curve representation paired with RTA of the pre- and post-processing signal for visual confirmation of the equalizer’s effect. Individual EQ bands can be toggled on and off, and up to four-hundred presets can be stored and recalled. Like all Bettermaker processors, the Mastering Equalizer also works in conjunction with a control plug-in that duplicates the front-panel controls and allows for instant session recall, full parameter automation and, unlike any other analog processor, A/B comparison not just of the bypassed versus processed signal, but of two differently-processed signals.

Humans are Smart, Signal Processors Aren’t

by Danny Maland If you recall the first part of my post “The Plow and The Field,” I spent some time talking about how it can be easy to fall a little bit too much in love with gear and what it can do. I thought it might be good to do an epilogue to “The Plow and The Field” where I spent some time on why our pr
