Kush audio electra 500 equalizer sweetwater gas prices going up 2016


The Kush Electra is a 4-band 500 Series EQ that lets you redefine how the transients and harmonic components of your signal interfuse. This Electrified Transient Equalizer employs a multi-topology design to give you new creative options in defining how your sounds interlock, move air, and even affect the emotions of your listeners. With two sweepable Proportional-Q bands, plus high and low shelving, Electra delivers punchy lows; creamy, detailed midrange; and delicious analog highs. Re-imagine what can be done with an equalizer, with the Kush Electra.

The Kush Electra’s two fully sweepable Proportional-Q midbands let you push hard or dig deep without sounding stressed or unmusical. The more you boost or cut, the narrower the filters get – which makes them gentle at low gain and quite powerful at high gain. Their adaptive shape is always highly musical, letting you add incisive thwack to a snare, brighten a vocal without losing warmth, or even totally rebalance the elements of a drum loop as if you had level controls over the various components. Tighten up the low end

Kush gave the Electra a fixed low shelf and a continuously variable (25-400Hz) 12dB/octave highpass filter that play especially nice together. The HPF exhibits just a taste of bite on the corner, which makes it lovely for cleaning up muddiness in your tracks. Combined, the shelf and HPF let you reshape and tighten up even the most obstreperous low end. Breathe life into your highs

Kush fitted the Electra with a gorgeous-sounding, fully sweepable (3.8-20k) high shelf that reminds us of the coveted vintage mastering EQs of yesteryear. This shelf breathes life into the dingiest sound and adds the type of sublime shimmer that seems so elusive when using plugins. There’s nothing quite like the Kush Electra. You need it. Kush Electra 500 Series EQ Features at a Glance:

I’ve been around the block using EQ processors for the 500 series. Each EQ processor has its own flavor and individual taste to it. Some are surgical, others are more generalized and it really depends on what you are going to be using the EQ processor for.

Remember that EQ’ing is not something that should be done ALL the time. It’s a way to tweak, to adjust and to fix, IMHO. The Kush Electra is an outstanding EQ processor, though it is somewhat challenging to adjust and get those perfect settings, its pretty difficult to really make it sound bad. In other words, it sounds good no matter what level or profiency you are at with using outboard gear. It’s for sure not suited for some applications however for a LOT of applications it is perfect and I am really enjoying using this module. If you are a beginner I’d say be aware that it takes some expertise to get it just right but if you’ve been around for a while this is your EQ. The price is great, the quality is amazing, the High/Low shelving is really neat and although I have other EQ’s that I use as well, this is simply another TOOL in my toolbox of gear and processors to make better sessions. Don’t go for ex. an API 550. Use a plugin for that. Seriously just b/c something is expensive does NOT mean it is good. The Neve 1073 LB EQ was one of the more annoying EQ’s that I used. Thats just me I could be just really dumb 🙂 who knows but don’t base it on price. Read reviews, do your research so you won’t have to take back outboard gear over and over again and end up frustrated like I once was.
