Alesis DEQ830 Digital Graphic EQ at a Glance:
An affordable 8-channel EQ for any audio application
The DEQ830 sports eight independent programmable 1/3-octave graphic equalizers. 30 band-select buttons cover 25Hz to 20kHz, with 13-segment LEDs for each band. An extremely intuitive user interface and multiple I/O options all come in an amazingly compact 1U rackmount design.
Analog and ADAT digital I/O
The DEQ830's connections include eight balanced 1/4" TRS analog inputs and outputs and eight channels of ADAT optical digital I/O. 24-bit operation makes the DEQ830 the perfect EQ unit for a range of modern live and recording applications.

BEST PIECE OF GEAR IN THE RACK!!!
by Rod Runion from Houston, Tx.This unit is by far the best piece of gear in my live rack. The difference is night and day. 8 channels of EQ and a spectrum analyzer all in one rack space is awsome, but the sound is even better!!!

Love the RTA function. Memory for the different projects using the system is convenient.
by RJC from Houston, TexasThis little piece of gear is like a giant tool box of EQs.

Well worth the price. One of my all time faves of audio inventions.

Exactly What I Needed
by Joshua Skaja from Chicago, ILI have a trio that plays 12+ instruments, and I run our sound from stage. Downtime between songs was killing us--we'd spend minutes muting, switching, trying to avoid tangling cords, making small adju... read more [+]stments--and it was impossible to work the crowd.

Now each guy has exactly one cord to plug in no matter which instrument he plays. That cord goes to the mixer (Yamaha O1V), which is connected to the DEQ830 via lightpipe. All the EQ settings for each instrument are saved, and each configuration has its own program number. We put the appropriate program number for each song on the set list and just give the knob a little twist. It's made a world of difference in our sound, our ability to schmooze the crowd, and in our overall comfort level onstage.
I'm docking it a half star because I haven't yet been able to get good results with the 12db boost/cut to level out the gain between instruments. It's probably user error, but even still I have to dock it for being counter-intuitive in that regard. close [-]
