Even better, the 32EQ's modular design integrates directly into the highly popular 500 series rack format. That way, you can incorporate this vintage equalizer conveniently into an configuration with other incredible components to achieve the perfect sound chain, which makes the EQ32 even more versatile than conventional signal processors.
Great River 32EQ Modular Vintage-style Equalizer at a Glance:
Get the real, vintage sound of the legendary Harrison 32 Series console equalizer
Great River worked directly with the original designers at Harrison who developed the first 32-bus "in-line" recording consoles from which the "32 Series" console derived its name. These consoles were responsible for countless hit records during the birth of modern pop, including Abba, Queen, and both Janet and Michael Jackson. In fact, within the EQ32 is the same technology that shaped the sound of Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album of all time. And with the 32EQ, you can bring that same powerful technology into your 500 series rack.
Plug into the power and versatility of the 500 series rack
There are some things that make the 32EQ even better than the original Harrison 32 Series console equalizers - namely the freedom the that 500 Series rack gives you from a giant mixer. With a 500 series rack, you can partner the 32EQ with a wide assortment of other, world-class modules like vintage preamplifiers and dynamics units. And while the 32EQ delivers large-format sound, its small-format price makes it easier to get your hands on the all the rest of the components you want.

by Tom Battaglia from Missoula, MT USAIt took me a while to integrate these into my workflow. The most significant thing about them is that when I do incorporate them into a mix, the clarity of the track and the ability to isolate each tr... read more [+]ack's sweet spot in the mix is superbly easy and audible. Through my own laziness, I generally have relied on my DAW's EQs due to the ease in which they can be added. Using these EQs, I have to patch them in. I only have two of them, thus I also have to re-record a track back into the project. This is why I tend to get lazy. But, when I go through the effort, the sonic difference between these and the "in-the-box" EQs is amazing. close [-]

by Ryan Mowdy from OKC, OKI write this as I swallow my pride with these EQ processors. I had tried going towards other brands (i.e. Maag, API) folks this EQ processor allows the user to easily access the low/mid/high frequenci... read more [+]es and its really great once you get that EQ setting just right. Well I've been testing various EQ's for vocals on ribbon microphones and without a doubt I can say for certain that the Great River Harrison EQ's are the best hands down. There are others I'd like to try but the moral of the story stick with what you bought first instead of going on some wild goose chase trying to find that ever allusive sound as it were. Face it chances are if it doesn't sound right its probably something you or me are doing. That being said, I highly recommend these EQ's and I will cherish them. close [-]

I am in the middle of tracking and mixing a CD for a local band and decided to go back to some of the tracks that had already been mixed and try out this EQ. First up, kick drum... I already had a nice, tight kick sound with plenty of low end and definition, but I wanted to see if the Great River 32EQ could do the same. I patched it in, and with a little tweaking, voila, the kick sound was even better!
Next, I tried it on bass guitar, and again, I heard an improvement in the sound.
Vocals were a bit trickier, and I found myself using the Great River 32EQ on many of the tracks, but not all. It didn't make any track sound worse, but there were instances where it didn't make any marked improvements either. In all fairness to Great River, my signal chain for the vocals was through premium equipment and the original tracks don't need much (if any) work to make them sit well in the mix.
The Great River handled both clean and distorted guitars very well, allowing me to dial in different sounds as needed.
In general, this is a "great" EQ and I will be adding another one soon. It seems to be much smoother sounding than other EQ's, and does add some sublte (very pleasant) coloration of it's own. I am now in the process of remixing several tracks using this EQ. I wish I would have purchased it sooner, but that's water under the bridge.
One word of caution... even though this is marketed as a "parametric" EQ, be aware that it is not fully parametric. The user is not able to adjust the "Q" for any of the bands. This is not necessarily bad, because Great River did a fine job of picking an appropriate Q.
All I can say is, "Buy it!" It is a great addition to any rack. close [-]
