The Retro Instruments 2A3 embodies this completely, and has been designed to be the ultimate high end program EQ unit, with sonic benefits going way beyond the usual EQ process.

Through making the most of standard passive EQ sounds that have become revered the world over, the Retro Instruments 2A3 builds upon firm favourites of the EQ while adding signature extras. This results in a versatile and beautiful EQ, suited to anything from shining vocals to a sweet mix bus.

The Retro Instruments 2A3 has a new subsonic filter, allowing the user to tame excess sub frequencies. This feature also uses an interstage transformer, meaning that at the same time it is capable of adding transformer tonal characteristics, suitable in either mixing or tracking. With a steep cutoff and peak response, this filter has settings of 90hz and 40hz. The overall smoothing effect of this filter on the Retro Instruments 2A3 dual program EQ can be heard across the midrange, giving a beautifully smooth sound. For a tighter low frequency response the filter can easily be switched out.

Controls on the Retro Instruments 2A3 are intuitive and easy to use, with the whole unit residing in 2U of rack space. The two channels can be used in stereo or independently, or can be cascaded.

The EQ circuitry in the Retro Instruments 2A3 doesn’t rely on amp feedback, which can sometimes cause a harsh sound. Through a passive inductor and capacitor based circuitry, the Retro Instruments 2A3 sounds beautifully natural and clear as an EQ unit.

Suited to tracking, mixing or even mastering, the Retro Instruments 2A3 is a truly superb sounding EQ unit.
