The Quartet II is not an update nor a replacement for our very popular Quartet. It is a complementary unit that incorporates a substantially different combination of elements. Designed with the input of Fletcher of Mercenary Audio, many additional options have been provided to tailor the texture of the audio character for maximum musical flexibility.
Designed as an all-purpose recording tool, the Quartet II combines four elements - Dual transformer Mic/DI preamp, Delta-mu compressor, Passive/Aggressive Inductor EQ and two mode JFET/MOSFET Peak Limiter - into a fully integrated package that makes it easy to process any source. In addition, the Mic/DI, EQ, Compressor, or Peak Limiter can be patched out and used independently. It also has transformerless or transfomer-balanced outputs.
The Quartet is an all-purpose recording tool designed with the ultimate in sound quality and flexibility in mind. We have combined four elements - the tube Mic/DI preamp from the MDP-1, the tube Opto-compressor from the OCL-2 enhanced with a new opto-inductive De-esser, and a new 3 band tube EQ - into a fully integrated package that it makes it easy to track any source. In addition, the Mic/DI, EQ or Compressor/De-esser can be patched out and used independently. The Quartet features an all-tube signal path, and transformerless or transfomer-balanced outputs. It received both the PAR Excellence Award and EQ Blue Ribbon Award for 2001.
