MQ57 has all controls and functions optimized for
mastering needs. It has relatively wide Q factors
that focus on overall balance rather than narrow
cuts and boosts, moderate gain ranges for
fine-tuning and functions such as channel linking
and precise cut filters.
Parametric mixing equalizer based on MQ57.
Most of the functions are the same, except that MQ55
operates only in stereo mode, has cut filters with
milder slopes and greater operating ranges and gain
ratio that acts like dry/wet control.
- MQ57/MQ55/SX36 MQ57 now operates
only in M/S mode, no more L/R support
- Balance/tilt ditched in favor of separate LCF/HCF
for each channel
- Reduced gain ranges in MQ55 from +-12dB to +-9dB
- Corrected Q factors
