Cranborne Audio Carnaby 500 Harmonic EQ
Carnaby 500 is a 3-band parametric EQ for the 500 series format with a unique and revolutionary EQ concept conceived and created by Cranborne Audio. Carnaby 500 is the world’s first Harmonic EQ™ - an analogue EQ that uses harmonic saturation to boost and cut frequency content. It enhances your sources, stems and mixes with genuine analogue harmonic saturation with the feel, familiarity, and control of an equaliser.
Carnaby 500 features 3 interactive bands of Harmonic EQ™ with each band having 10dB of boost/cut and its own sweepable and overlapping frequency controls. Each band of Carnaby 500 has a unique blend of harmonic content suited to its frequency band to achieve maximum musicality.
The HI band has a frequency range from 5kHz all the way to 25kHz and uses smooth saturation to naturally extend high frequencies beyond the audio band for ultimate air and breath on vocals and acoustic instruments.
The MID band is a peaking filter with a fixed Q and a wide sweepable frequency range from 200Hz up to 6.2kHz. It uses saturation to add harmonic emphasis to the source anywhere in the frequency range.
The LO band has a frequency range of 420Hz down to 20Hz and uses hard-clipping saturation to extend sub-harmonic frequencies into the audible low-end - perfect for subtle low-end warming or extreme sub-harmonic saturation.
Unlike other EQs, Carnaby 500 has a dynamic response and increases in total boost/cut and harmonics as the circuits are driven harder. An Input and Output level control on each band allows for ±20dB of level adjustment, enabling you to drive Carnaby 500 harder with the input control for more saturation and distortion effects, or back it off for a cleaner EQ when needed.
Stereo-Link via OPTOSYNC
Carnaby 500 not only features a world-first EQ circuit, but it also has an innovative stereo-linking feature called OPTOSYNC which enables two Carnaby 500 units to work as a perfect stereo pair for mixes and stereo sources.
Using OPTOSYNC, all controls are synchronized from the left unit to the right without cables or internal fixings. Switch OPTOSYNC for all slave units to ON and their control’s all synchronize to the master unit wirelessly using LED and optical communication. You can also use OPTOSYNC to link together multiple units for applying the same sonic footprint across entire summing mixers or multi-channel surround mixes.
