Mission Accomplished... in Spades!
by John D from CTFirst, there's a previous reviewer here that I think missed the point completely (the only one that didn't give this 5 starts to date). The reviewer called this 'limited', 'disappointing', and that it... read more [+] souldn't be your 'main EQ'. In my opinion, I think his issue is with the Baxandall EQ DESIGN IN GENERAL, not the build of this unit. This is a design intended for wide shelving adjustments, NOT surgical boosts and cuts - if that's not the doctor ordered for your application, so be it, but in my opinion that's like giving a corvette a poor rating because it can't tow a trailer - it just means if you needed ot pull a trailer, you should have bought a truck.

That being said, this unit does exactly what it is supposed to do, and in an incredibly sweet manner. Gentle, subtle, clean, and very sweet-sounding. This is now, in my view, an invaluable part of my mastering chain - you miss it when it's not there! Also surprisingly useful for tracking, love it on bass, acoustic, and overheads especially.
If you're going back and forth between this and, say, an API1500, take a BIG step back! First decide if a broad-spectrum shelving/sweetening EQ or a surgical/more shapeable EQ is what you need. If shelving is your answer, I would confidently say you'll have a tough time finding a better-built or better-sounding unit. close [-]
The Magic Red Button
by Simon Picazo from Fort Wayne, INI already own a Dangerous Dbox for my D/A and Adam A7's with Auralex Propads in a very good room so I initially wondered how much the BAX would help me.

After having it for a few months, someone accidentally disengaged it and my wife thought that our system had broken, we checked everything until finally we pushed the magic red button back in again. Happiness restored. close [-]
A Must Have
by Will Gilbert from Memphis, TNDangerous Music does it again! The Bax EQ is amazing for single tracks and for master tracks. The filters cuts un-wanted frequencies out with ease and still preserves the quality of your sound. You... read more [+] can cut and boost frequencies that give your bass that low you want more of or your snare sound more crisp. Used as an overall EQ on a master track is also un-believable. I use it also along with my 2-Bus Lt and get amazing results all day long. You can't go wrong with Dangerous. close [-]

by Doug Jenkins from Wadsworth, ohWell, as you become a little more in tune with compression and EQ. You start to realize, that some pieces of equipment just do this job, in a way that you first weren't intending it too!. When I bo... read more [+]ught the Bax I was happy with my mixes, but sometimes acheiving a high end a little cleaner, or a lo end sitting a little better, would make me overwork a mix and lose focus of where I was going with it. The BAX filled that void, have a little too much weight on the bottom, dial in the shelf that solves it!, highs a little harsh, dial in a shelf that smooths it out! overall. It is that grammy winning sound, that is so hard to explain. Inside the box.. NOTE I HAVE APOGEE CONVERTORS. I LOVE THEM, WITH A BIG BEN CLOCK,, Anything that improves on these, or allows the convertors to do the job correct, is a winner in my book. I own a Manley Mu that does compression like this does EQ, When something is making a change, and the normal ears can't hear it, I think that is a recipe for the WOW factor.... OH and last, watch how it makes your music sound better, without even touching a knob, VERY HIGH BUILD. THIS THING CRUSHES MY PREVIOUS SHELVING SOLUTIONS.. close [-]
