Behringer has announced the ULTRA-CURVE PRO DEQ2496 (USD 379.99 MSRP) at Musikmesse, a high-precision digital 24-bit/96kHz EQ/RTA mastering processor in a single rack space. Owing to its two high-performance 32/40-bit floating-point SHARC digital signal processors and AKM AD- and D/A converters and 113 dB dynamic range, the DEQ2496 can provide clarity, warmth and punch to a mix. Inserted between the stereo output of an analog or digital mixing console, a workstation or master recording media, the ULTRA-CURVE DEQ2496 enhances the dynamics of recording material.

The DEQ2496 features 4 selectable EQ modules with 31-band graphic EQ, 10-band parametric EQ, Feedback Destroyer plus three Dynamic EQs per stereo channel. A patent pending VPQ (Virtual Paragraphic EQ) option allows parametric control of graphic EQs.

Effects include a compressor/expander function with peak limiter on each stereo channel, as well as an additional stereo imager and stereo delay for delay line applications. A high-resolution 61-band real-time FFT analyzer with additional auto EQ function makes room and loudspeaker equalization easy. Multi-functional level meters like peak/RMS, VU and SPL meter with dBA/dBC weighting via a RTA mic input provide all the visual control needed. Furthermore, 64 user memories facilitate complete setups and individual module configurations to produce quality masters. Separate RTA mic/line input with phantom power, professional wordclock input and MIDI connections enable full remote control, preset dumps and system updates. IO on the DEQ2496 include balanced inputs and servo-balanced outputs with gold-plated XLR connectors, as well as AES/EBU and S/PDIF ins and outs (XLR and optical).

The ULTRA-CURVE PRO DEQ2496 features an open architecture for future software updates via MIDI, while an internal switch-mode power supply ensures maximum flexibility, noise-free audio and superior transient response at very low power consumption.

Shipping is expected in second quarter 2003.
