    Look No Further

    Just sweep and smile, you don,t need numbers to find what counts on a track with the Electra. It,s easy to hear the good from the bad you don,t need. I would,ve bought this just for cutting and be happy. I find myself reaching for this more than the others. You,ll be smiling from ear to ear!

    These are pretty phenominal

    I've had a lot of EQs come and go in my studio, both rack mount and 500 series. These are by far my favorite EQ to date, even besting my prized piece (and foundation of my studio), an 8 channel Sontec clone. I can't say enough about them and I'm very happy to report that people aren't just blowing smoke about them.

    They enhance transients (is that even possible??), sweeten highs, tighten lows......all the cliche terms. It's a very clean EQ and by that I don't mean sterile. They add excitement to anything I put them on.

    Ok I'm done gushing

    I've been around the block using EQ processors for the 500 series. Each EQ processor has its own flavor and individual taste to it. Some are surgical, others are more generalized and it really depends on what you are going to be using the EQ processor for.

    Remember that EQ'ing is not something that should be done ALL the time. It's a way to tweak, to adjust and to fix, IMHO. The Kush Electra is an outstanding EQ processor, though it is somewhat challenging to adjust and get those perfect settings, its pretty difficult to really make it sound bad. In other words, it sounds good no matter what level or profiency you are at with using outboard gear. It's for sure not suited for some applications however for a LOT of applications it is perfect and I am really enjoying using this module. If you are a beginner I'd say be aware that it takes some expertise to get it just right but if you've been around for a while this is your EQ. The price is great, the quality is amazing, the High/Low shelving is really neat and although I have other EQ's that I use as well, this is simply another TOOL in my toolbox of gear and processors to make better sessions. Don't go for ex. an API 550. Use a plugin for that. Seriously just b/c something is expensive does NOT mean it is good. The Neve 1073 LB EQ was one of the more annoying EQ's that I used. Thats just me I could be just really dumb :) who knows but don't base it on price. Read reviews, do your research so you won't have to take back outboard gear over and over again and end up frustrated like I once was.

    Awesome Electra!

    Kush UBK has done it again. These EQ's are great! Instruments sound more forward and focused. They can clean up the bottom end while driving things hard. They have MOJO! Its like I can't make them sound bad.
    Jeff at sweetwater has been excellent in helping me piece together my studio!
