More details

By building these equalizers, Bettermaker wanted to create devices that would have a maximum range of usage and a very characteristic, but clean sound. We picked out the best classic designs and modified them to be more practical. As we  work faster and faster every day, we need to have the highest quality and maximum speed we can get. That was the main motivation to develop the Bettermaker® EQ 232P. Now we took a step forward and presented EQ232P MKII.

Between EQ232P and EQ232P MKII we took a huge step improving this amazing EQ even more. There is over 30 changes and improvements in construction, firmware and software. This is by far our most complex and perfect product and by it’s sound and functionality compared to it’s price the unit presents huge value to a professional engineer.

It sounds absolutely fabulous!

It sounds absolutely fabulous!
The Bettermaker EQ232P is two equalizers in one, each with its unique and useful personality. They’ve made an excellent point of emulating a classic Pultec down to the curves and the sound of it. In contrast, the EQ1 and EQ2 are very clean, transparent equalizers, and the P section has a very nice, warm character while also being clean enough even for purist classical music. A very nice combination and implementation of two styles in a single box. Regardless which of the two EQ styles you choose, or even mixing the two styles together, the resulting sound will be lively, clean, pure, dynamic. It can have character, warmth, and clarity at the same time.

    Incredible Equalizer

    The Bettermaker EQ232P is an incredible Equalizer. Today we expect our gear (analog and Plugins) to have more than one simple use. The BM does this. Also I think it has pioneered a new breed of gear – 100% analog signal signal path with recallable digital control circuitry. And it does this while sounding amazing. I use it on everything!
