Great-sounding inductor-coil EQ

Radial's Q3 is a 3-band passive inductor-coil EQ. Passive based EQ is favored by many studio engineers. You'll find that the warm, smooth tone of the Q3 real-coil EQ works great on most instruments and vocals.

Powerful tone-sculpting controls

The simple, but powerful Q3 EQ module features top-end boost, midrange cut, and bass boost controls for creating the perfect sound for your signal. A highpass filter lets you further dial in your tone, and an EQ in/out button lets you instantly hear your signal with or without EQ.

It can be frustrating trying to find those perfect tones that you got last session, with standard knobs. Not so with the Radial Q3 coil EQ. You can quickly re-create your EQ settings on the Q3 thanks to its 12-position knobs. All you have to do is dial in the detented number on each knob for exact recall. With over 1700 combinations, the Radial Q3 is a versatile and friendly 500 series EQ module.

kudos to radial for thinking outside the box

this eq seemed so interesting I had to get it. I'm not crazy about the mid cuts because they are some pretty drastic cuts, but the boosts on the right source sound really good. Best of all it "sounds" like an analog eq to me, and matching some of the curves to plugins the Q3 won every time. With the knobs flat you can also crank the gain to get some saturation from the inductor coils. I never knew what to think about Radial because their 500 series products are much cheaper than other high end companies, but this eq sounds really good.
