1. Introduction

Born in the ’70s, this channel EQ module has been surely used on all your favorite records. The BAE 1073 can handle it all – from classical music to pop, badass hip-hop and rock. Inspired by the hardware original, we made sure this beast can give your sound that very specific analog punch, which top producers have been cashing in on for decades now!

2. Features

3. Layout

BAE 1073 EQ Layout

1. Phase Flip Button

Flips the signal phase. Use it to correct phasing problems, such as lack of bass or things soundling like they are ran through a phaser.

2. Power On/Off Button

When lit, the equalizer is turned On. When not lit, the EQ is bypassed. The button doubles as the BP button in the AFX Rack.

3. Low Cut Switch

Low-cut filter ranging from 50Hz to 300Hz.

4. Low-Frequency Filter

+/-16dB shelving with selectable frequencies of 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz & 220Hz

5. Mid-Frequency Filter

+/-18dB peaking, fixed ‘Q’ with, selectable centre frequencies of 0.36kHz, 0.7kHz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz & 7.2kHz

6. High-Frequency Filter

+/-16dB fixed frequency shelving at 12kHz

7. Gain Control

Ranges from 0dB to 80dB.

8. Output Monitor

Visualizes output signal.

5. Glossary

5.1 Shelving EQ
A shelf type EQ is the boost or cut of all frequencies above or below the cutoff frequency. It is most commonly found on the top and bottom bands of a parametric EQ.
5.2 Bell Curve
All equalizers with peaking filters use a bell curve which makes the EQ smoothly process a range of frequencies. With the bell curve, the center frequency occurs at the top of the bell curve and is the one most affected by equalization.
5.3 Low-cut Filter
Also known as high-pass filter. There are two types of pass filters in equalization. A high-pass filter (HPF) attenuates content below a cutoff frequency, allowing higher frequencies to pass through the filter. Thus, it is commonly used for cutting low frequencies. A low-pass filter (LPF) works the opposite – it attenuates content above a cutoff frequency, letting lower frequencies pass through the filter.
