Ever felt like the BAE 1073 was sounding ace but didn’t offer you enough control? Well, BAE 1023 is here to save the day. It offers five more frequencies in the mids and four in the high range. This however is not the sole change in this. The EQ offers even more tone shaping options by for example allowing you to use the mid-bell curve directly against the shelves in the lows or the highs where they overlap. This mighty trick results in a very organic and natural all analog sound. High frequencies can be boost/cut on shelving mode, for the mids you get peaking mode.
Below’s a list with the expanded frequency controls of the 1023. The high pass filter works on 18dB per octave slope and is switchable between 45Hz, 70Hz, 160Hz and 360Hz.
Lows: +/-16dB at 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz & 220Hz.
Mids: +/-12dB or +/-18dB at 160Hz, 270Hz, 360Hz, 510Hz, 700Hz, 1.6k, 3.2k, 4.8k, 7.2k, 8.2k and 10kHz.
Highs: +/-16dB at 10kHz, 12kHz, 16kHz, 20kHz and 24kHz.
