Classic Console-style EQ

The swinging input console equalizers of yesteryear tended to sound sweet and musical. This is what Purple Audio is going after with their Odd 500 Series inductor EQ, and in Sweetwater's opinion, they've succeeded handily. The Odd gives you impressive flexibility - four bands, each offering 12dB of boost/cut, and with your choice of two center frequencies. The low and high bands are switchable between bell curve and shelving. Lastly, there are both low and high cut filters at 60Hz and 12kHz, respectively. With its discrete signal path and transformer-balanced I/O, the Purple Audio Odd is quiet; with impactful lows, clear mids, and sweet highs. We know you'll want one.

Sweetwater Advice

Nathan Wall

Purple's Odd is a very musical EQ. It's super smooth and maintains the integrity of my mix no matter what source I put it on. I typically use it as part of my 500 series channel strip for vocals. It does a great job for both male and female vocals, but I've also used it for bass, kick and snare, and acoustic guitar. It has enough options to work well on any source.
