Default Expanded EQ Controls

Let's take a closer look at the expanded EQ controls for a Knob Module on S6. The Avid Channestrip plug-in offers 2 Filters, 4 Bands of EQ in addition to dedicated Input and Output controls.



Filters:
Filters 1 and 2 can be enabled using either the bottom left Encoders or the bottom In switches. The Sel switches just above each In switch enable the Band Solo functions for each filter. The second encoder from the bottom controls the Filter Frequency. To toggle the Filter Type, use any of the In switches adjacent to the encoders for Frequency, Q or Slope. The topmost encoder on the filter column toggles the Filter Slope, between 12 and 24dB/Octave. If the Filter Type is set to Band Pass or Notch, the second encoder from the top can be used to adjust the Filter Q.

Input / Output:
Input and Output controls with nothing switched.

Low Band:
For the Low Band, the bottommost encoder adjusts Gain - boost or cut. The associated switched controls, just like the Filters, include In for Band Enable and Sel for Band Solo. The In switches associated with the Frequency and Q encoders toggle the band between Peak and Shelving.

Lo Mid Band:
For the Low Mid Band, the bottommost encoder adjusts Gain - boost or cut. The associated switched controls, just like the Filters, include In for Band Enable and Sel for Band Solo. The second encoder up from Gain controls Frequency, then Q just above it.

Hi Mid Band:
For the Hi Mid Band, the bottommost encoder adjusts Gain - boost or cut. The associated switched controls, just like the Filters, include In for Band Enable and Sel for Band Solo. The second encoder up from Gain controls Frequency, then Q just above it.

High Band:
For the High Band, the bottommost encoder adjusts Gain - boost or cut. The associated switched controls, just like the Filters, include In for Band Enable and Sel for Band Solo. The In switches associated with the Frequency and Q encoders toggle the band between Peak and Shelving.
