A 500 Series, 2-channel, stereo/dual-mono/mid–side 4-band analogue EQ with digital recall that gives you complete control via its companion plug-in. Connectivity to your computer is handled via a front-panel USB port that allows it to communicate with its free companion plug-in for complete control and automation within your DAW.

Formidable sound-sculpting prowess
Hyperion offers a host of innovations that put it firmly on pro audio's cutting-edge. Boasting an onboard control set that supports extensive sound-sculpting flexibility, the faceplate is fitted with 12 touch-sensitive encoders allowing for automation of each parameter. Hyperion features proprietary analogue circuit control that eliminates glitches and artifacts due to encoder movement, allowing for full automation without unwelcome side effects. The HF (which extends to 25kHz) and LF bands are selectable between Bell and Shelf modes. The high-mid and low-mid bands are equipped with variable Q. Hyperion's highpass filter has two modes: Normal (which is quite narrow) and Soft. Each band is fitted with individual bypass switches.

Total recall with ng500
The company's ng500 product line starts with 500 Series modules that have a special connector, an extension of the standard connector found on all 500 Series modules. The extra pins on the extended connector mate with receiver connectors in WesAudio's _TITAN ng500 Recall Chassis. On its rear panel, the _TITAN is fitted with a USB jack for connection to your computer, as well as Ethernet for networked setups. All ng500-compatible modules in the rack will be able to communicate with your computer via a single data cable. Each module includes free downloadable software that appears in your DAW session as a standard plug-in and lets you control your analogue hardware with software precision. Every setting and automation move is saved along with your DAW session file.

Works in most standard 500 Series racks
You don't need a _TITAN to use Hyperion; ng500 modules are fully functional in most standard 500 Series racks. Each module features a front-panel USB connection you can connect to your computer for use with its respective companion plug-in for total control over one module at a time. But with the _TITAN ng500 Recall Chassis, you have complete control over all mounted modules.
