| The Vintage Audio M3D Skyline
is a Stereo channel Six band dynamic equalizer based on a classic
design but with a number of modern improvements for the utmost
fidelity, headroom and control in both Mixdown and Mastering
That said; don’t be shy to use its mastering quality equalization
anywhere including: drum overheads, room mics, piano vocals and more.
Its sounds phenomenal anywhere you put it!
The unique Architecture of our M3D Skyline
is a completely Mono Block signal path using High performance Burr
Brown opamps, Premium low tolerance Wima Filter components, Premium
Panasonic Capacitors, Mil Spec Resistors and Monster 22V Rails for
maximum headroom, musicality and clarity.
The completely Variable, Stereo Frequency band potentiometers allow you to get it just right with minimal effort every time.
Large Ergonomic Solid aluminum knobs make it easy to roll your band into the zone.
Some may ask, why not Detented pots if this is a Mastering Equalizer also?
When designing this unit we found that the variable potentiometer
controls we chose were very easy to re-call and dial in without the use
of detents and of course allow for finer control making detents
completely un-necessary and in some ways not as preferred.
The Skylines six bands were carefully chosen as the most crucial bands
to boost or cut in any musical material and allow perfect equalization
of program material without all the mess and re-call frustration of
sweeping bands and Q controls.
While some engineers may look at the lack of control as unusual, all
you need to do is hook it up and start using it to understand the
beauty of the design and that it’s all you need for polished mixes,
drums and Mastering equalization.
One of our favorite things about the Skyline is that it offers a
wonderful sounding Bell Curve Sub Band and Shelf Based Atmosphere band
that can take small semi-pro or project studio mixes and completely
rejuvenates them with broader response and more energy.
All Eq bands on the Skyline were carefully chosen for the most musical
sounding cut and boost you have ever heard all with stereo precision
and the ease of use you expect in a fine boutique Vintage Audio product.
