Red 2, it is only dedicated to the equalization and has features in common with the rest of the Red range, especially at the mechanical design, which is strictly identical with the rest of this range.
This correction is divided into six sections: low cut, EQ Low Cut, parametric lower and upper midrange, treble EQ and high-cut. The low-cut 12dB/octave is and has a frequency control by rotary switch with 6 positions, one is commissioned. The next section allows to influence the curve of plus or minus 16dB from one of six frequencies chosen on the selector ad hoc.
Both parametric midrange are more sophisticated, they have obviously level settings, and frequency selectivity (Q). The fitting has a frequency command to multiply by 3 the value selected. In addition to this dual range, these two parametric bands have partially overlapping .. The equalizer has acute or less the same characteristics as its counterpart serious, except of course in regard to cutoff frequencies ..
The filter can blow up, he, be settled by studs from 5.6 to 22kHz.
The 2-way processor feature a touch of commissioning and a general adjustment of the output level but not put into service for each individual filter yet handy if you want to compare the sound with or without the action of one of these 6 markers, shame ..
Numerous tests on voice and guitar allowed me to see that in almost all cases, the Red 2 offers processing capabilities well enough to give complete satisfaction by providing effective corrections and music. It is also important to note that this remains valid with narrow bands and corrections muscular, which is not always the case, far from it with other equipment, I think especially with digital equipment.
A very good tool, performing a musical EQ section, however, this processor takes time manipulation to achieve a satisfactory outcome, in fact, the minimalist look of the screen so it fits perfectly with the simplicity of design does not provide information not enough on the selected frequencies and forces them to go "fishing" to find the desired frequency ..
