A wealth of EQ choices
The Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 gives you dual 31-band Graphic Equalizers, 31-band Virtual Paragraphic Equalizers and a 10-band Parametric. Of course, you get phase-neutral digital graphic EQ, however the DEQ2496 lets you to alter the bandwidth of each frequency. If you favor the traditional approach to variable bandwidth, you also get 10-band parametrics that can be fine-tuned in increments as small as 1/60 of an octave!
The Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 is a digital 24-bit/96kHz EQ/RTA mastering processor – ideal for sophisticated live sound troubleshooting or audiophile mastering. Whether you’re putting the finishing touches on recorded material or shaping your sound for a PA system, the DEQ2496 will give you the exacting control you need.
RTA/SPL/FFT Analyzer with Auto EQ
The Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 features an FFT (Fast Fourier transform) real-time analyzer for accurate graphic display of 61 frequency bands. You can monitor main or digital I/O, AUX/ digital out, or a feed from your RTA mic – and display the results in an assortment of ways (including delightfully retro VU meters). Auto EQ lets you analyze and adjust your system’s frequency response automatically. Now, how cool is that?
