    Good old dual preamp Eq way

    TC Electronic TC 2240Published on 01/26/12 at 06:37
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Tachnologie transistor class A
    Low THD
    High impedance connectors

    USE

    Fairly brief manual
    Profile point for the DI-oriented and low voices. A test with drums and other instruments scoustique high pressure, where the gain control is extremely flexible compared to most machines.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Mainly for guitar, where it operates optimally in addition to a rig; for example, after the effects processor, so find the analog unstamped himself "typer" unduly sound. It serves the function of "buffer" (buffer) essential in order to regain momentum and frequency correct past the wayside during the compress an analog / digital conversion or simply stacking the pedals.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    A few months
    For the preamp, it does stand out really the point; its neutral, to be observed transients.
    The equalizer is extremely complete contrast; a good extra in a pro studio. The width of the band is wide and flexible search frequencies.
    The eq matching is a rare and very valuable function.
    Excellent price / quality ratio

    Lovely analog sound

    TC Electronic TC 2240Published on 08/13/12 at 11:57
    The TC Electronic 2240 is basically two TC 1140 units, glued together in a 2U (unit) rack. On the front, you have the input gain, output gain, EQ match gain, bypass switch and the four frequency control sections.
    Each frequency band covers a wide range and they overlap each other, so no frequency goes untouchable. Along with controls to select the center frequency, you have the bandwidth (also known as the Q value). The center frequency can be boosted or cut with as much as 20 dB - that's a lot!
    Since this is a parametric equalizer, your possibilities are pretty much endless.

    Since this is a parametric equalizer, your possibilities are pretty much endless.

    UTILIZATION

    The setup of the parametric equalizer is quick and easy. Once you have adjusted the input and output gain, you can go ahead and adjust the frequencies.
    The EQ match control has its right when it comes to adjusting the frequencies. In order for the EQ to not stand out to much, you hit the bypass switch on and off, while adjusting the EQ match up or down according to your needs.
    If you've made a lot of big cuts with the EQ, then you'l need to boost the signal, with the EQ match and vice versa when you've boosted the equalizer section.

    SOUND QUALITY

    If the analog sound, of old school components and not a digital chip adjusting signals with ones and zeroes, then you've certainly found the right unit.
    I use this on my taylor 214e guitar, on vocals on sometimes also on the kick drum, to fatten it up. It really does its job well.


    OVERALL OPINION

    There are not a lot of 2240's left on the market today, but should you be able to get a hold of one, don't let it go. Even if you don't have a use for it, don't throw it out. You'll regret it later on.
    The digital domain might be clearer in its signal, and you have better options, when editing and controlling the effects you use on a track (using automation). But you simply can't beat the sound of a good, old, solidt build effect unit like a parametric equalizer.

    The Boeing 737 North

    TC Electronic TC 2240Published on 07/15/12 at 05:45
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    In addition to the previous opinion, note
    - Connectivity predisposed to use guitar / instrument
    - An interoperability second class (it is already) with the matching EQ (true stereo tool!)

    UTILIZATION

    - Downloadable manual and very well done as usual 'in TC

    - Very flexible configuration through "pilot lights" on each band, gains / out, and the famous EQ matching, capable of determining the contribution of cut / boost, which distinguishes it from the vast majority of EQ! !

    SOUND QUALITY

    - The cold North (although not glossy as an EQ can be appreciated, the TC Electronics TC 1128, https://fr.audiofanzine.com/eq-graphique/tc-electronic/TC-1128/avis/ r.103409.html)

    - Suitable for any surgical EQ module with a bandwidth of the four frequency ranges covered

    - Total realism: respect the source, but suddenly no "grain" or "color" popular on other devices

    - My favorite: the versatility of the EQ
    - Nothing to dislike: Pre 'is above the input audio interfaces

    OVERALL OPINION

    - A few years

    - The coast has declined bcp! the argus of AF is here a certain giddiness! Produces very little known, because interrupted production, and then a niche ignored by home-studio owners, who were able to bring to its "alternative" brit ', then the DRAWMER 1961 TL Audio 5021 (blah, blah)

    - Much better reaction to the noise-floor devices to lamp

    - Ideal for setting "gain stages" during prod '; for good without EQ during mixing

    - I tried this and TL Audio EQ is much more accurate and complete!

    - A lack of certainty for those who love HarmonicDistortion: on the contrary it is the linearity, and it is very good in this taste, I just drop his note because I value the distortion '. /.

    Trs is good in the lower spectrum: low kick, tom, serious guitar. It adds body to the sound, the bass is really awesome! I go into my Alesis D4 trigg my kick, a real massacre!
    Not great on the snare drum, cymbals, guitars acute.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for several months. I bought the 300 euros OCCAZ 'is quite expensive but worth it! Not as good an equa lamps, but it suits me perfectly!
