The Kuassa EVE-AT1 / EVE-AT4 consists of two individual EQs inspired by the design of the legendary Neve* 1081 and 1084 that are known for their clear, smooth, and very musical characteristics. We are thrilled by the sound and present these EQs as a modern tribute to one of the most influential audio tools ever created.
EVE-AT1 is a 4-band parametric equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Inspired by the EQ section of a renowned British Classic –the Neve* 1081 –this equalizer delivers a clear, smooth, and musical sound to shape your tracks. The EVE-AT1 posseses an additional parametric band with expanded Q bandwidth selection in the low-mid and high-mid frequency ranges as compared to the EVE-AT4. In addition, the AT1 impelements a different high-pass and low-pass filter, giving the AT1 a slightly more conventional frequency response in these areas. These characteristics mean the EVE-AT1 is suitable for a broad range of musical applications, offering flexibility, versatility and all-round utility.
EVE-AT4 is a 3-band equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Designed as a tribute to the EQ section of the Neve* 1084, which was created as the successor to the legendary Neve* 1073. Although the EVE-AT4 possesses fewer bands, a smaller frequency selection palette, and less Q bandwidth selection options as compared to the EVE-AT1, its strength lies in its unique filter implementation, producing an idiosyncratic frequency response not present on the EVE-AT1. The result is a particular tonal character; the sound and tonal shape of its original incarnation is a hallmark of many classic recordings from the 70s.
Both the AT1 and AT4 were designed with simplicity and clarity in mind, allowing for straightforward usage and immediate productivity. Although they share certain tonal characteristics, the EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4 reveal their differences in the details. The EVE-AT4 is the stronger ‘character’ equalizer, while the EVE-AT1 is suitable as a ‘go-to’ equalizer for a wide range of instruments and musical applications.
