The Pullet will supply the EQ network to a signal but will reduce the signal level in order that a preamplifier using a acquire of as much as 40dB is required to be able to lift the signal back as much as unity get when the Pullet EQ is set to ‘flat’ or bypass.
The preamplifier is utilized in the output of the Pullet. The reality is the fact that a lot of people will currently have a preamplifier that can be utilised, either a standalone outboard unit, or perhaps a mic-preamp built into a console, so the Pullet could make a good deal much more use from the preamps that would otherwise be sitting about unused throughout a mix.
The Pullet supplies a variation on the classic passive EQ styles that have proved so common (eg. Pultec).
Nonetheless, there’s far more control and choice within the mid range frequencies than may be present in preceding designs.
The Pullet can provide a variable Q boost of as much as 21dB over 11 different frequencies and fixed Q cut at 11 frequencies. There is also a ‘High top’ handle that gives a switched set of shelving style filters to boost or cut higher frequencies.
The Pullet was originally designed for use with the Earlybird 2.2 mic preamp but early on a decision was produced to alter the style so that the Pullet might be utilized with any mic preamp available using a get of as much as 40dB.
The input impedance on the Pullet is set at 10kO as well as the Sowter input transformer is utilised to ensure that it is going to function typically when placed within a chain immediately after any piece of gear.
The Pullet can create some radical EQ curves because of the extremely high amount of increase and cut available however the passive nature from the EQ will always let the outcomes to sound as all-natural as possible.
It’s “balanced” in and out on XLR connectors. Brief, premium quality leads are supplied for connection to mic amps.
