1. Introduction

The VEQ HA32C was inspired by one of the richest and most characteristic-sounding four-band channel EQ modules. Incredibly versatile, it can treat everything — including vocals, bass & electric guitars, and drums. The EQ smooths out the high-end while keeping the mids vivid and the lows thick and solid. It features four parametric bands, each of them coming with a Gain and Frequency control knob. The Low and High bands can be switched to shelving modes, and the EQ features High- and Low-Pass filters that can be switched on or off.

2. Features

  • Switchable low-and high-pass filters.
  • Switchable low and high frequency shelving.
  • Four semi-parametric bands.

3. Layout

1. High Pass Frequency Knob

Selects the high-pass filter frequency.

2. Power On/Off Button

Turns the EQ On or Off. The button doubles as the Bypass button from the AFX Rack.

3. HP IN Button

Turns the high-pass filter On or Off.

4. Low Pass Frequency Knob

Selects the low-pass filter frequency.

5. LP IN Button

Turns the low-pass filter On or Off.

6. Low Frequency Knob

Selects the low center frequency. Use the shelving switch below to engage shelving EQ mode.

7. Low Frequency Gain Knob

Boosts or attenuates the selected low frequency from -10 to +10dB.

8. Low Mid Frequency Knob

Selects the low mid center frequency.

9. Low Mid Frequency Gain Knob

Boosts or attenuates the selected low mid frequency from -10 to +10dB.

10. High Mid Frequency Knob

Selects the high mid center frequency.

11. High Mid Frequency Gain Knob

Boosts or attenuates the selected high mid frequency from -10 to +10dB.

12. High Frequency Knob

Selects the high center frequency. Use the shelving switch below to engage shelving EQ mode.

13. High Frequency Gain Knob

Boosts or attenuates the selected high mid frequency from -10 to +10dB.

14. Output Gain Knob

Adjusts output gain from +12dB to -24dB. This lets you make up for lost gain or attenuate the excess.

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.
