Rane ME 60S MicroGraphic EQ
The Rane ME60S Stereo Constant-Q Equalizer is a twochannel, 1/3-octave design, housed in a two rack-space unit. It features a Range switch for high slider resolution in the ±6 dB mode, equivalent resolution to 45 mm sliders found on larger models. The ±12 dB mode provides a wide range of control over system audio.

The ME60S evolved by combining two ME 30 equalizers in one unit and then embellishing with two adjustable bandlimiting filters on the low and high end. Though consuming only 12 watts of power, a Power switch is added to the ME60S (the ME 30S consumes 7 watts and does not have a Power switch).

The active filter sections feature Rane’s innovative constant-Q (constant bandwidth) design. Constant-Q means the bandwidth of each individual filter is guaranteed to be narrow enough to prevent unwarranted interaction between filters, yet wide enough to produce exactly the type of correction curve demanded by even the most unusual acoustic surroundings. This differs dramatically from conventional designs of the past, encumbered with the unfortunate characteristic of changing bandwidth when changing boost/cut amounts.

The adjustable filters are useful to band limit the audio signal. For instance, restricting high frequencies to match the incoming signal usually produces the most quiet system. And a common use for the Low Cut Filter is limiting the signal going to 70-volt speaker systems. Often low frequencies saturate the loudspeaker transformers. Restricting these signals greatly improves system intelligibility. Full bandwidth use requires positioning both sliders to their lower limits. This effectively removes the filters and guarantees 20-20 kHz ±0.5 dB performance.
