Your gateway to flawless audio

The Behringer DEQ2496 Ultracurve Processor is regarded as the “swiss-army knife” of the mastering world, with a whole array of different features to optimise your sound quality. Featuring a range of flexible equalization options, the DEQ2496 gives you optimal control over your sound, helping you achieve the perfect balance.

Take full control with the Dynamic EQ (DEQ). This function automatically increases or decreases a defined frequency range based on volume level. It’s comprised an equalizer and dynamic processor, this function is great for live performances, allowing you to control any wild frequencies that are likely to affect the sound.

The multiple filter types are also fully controllable, including a convenient bandpass mode for added versatility. You can recall any DEQ settings at any time from the processor or via MIDI.
