Sonic Surgery. EQKiller can truly deconstruct sounds with its frequency tool kit: high and low tunable crossovers, band killing and frequency controlled FX send and return. Join Us.

  • Half rack sized EQ effect, but not what you usually think of in an equalizer, this is designed mainly for cutting from your sound entirely the lows, mids, highs, or any combination of the three. Level controls for each of the bands which add a bit of a boost to the signal when turned full clockwise, Low and High "X-Over" controls to dial in the width of each band, and steady on or momentary buttons which "kill" each band selected. In my opinion not so much a refined "tone-shaping" device, more for dramatic, instantaneous changes in the characteristic of the sound... especially pronounced when cutting either the highs or the lows. Unlike the other Electrix products the EQ Killer is NOT stereo, it has two sets of ins and outs, but they are two seperate switchable channels and cannot be used simultaneously. What is cool though is that you can run two completely different signals through the unit and switch between them for even more variety in your sound, or, as I have been doing run your signal through the EQ Killer at two different points in the chain. Also has an effects send and return which, as I understand it, allows you to process the "killed" frequency band, so it doesn't cut the band, but lets you add effects to just one specific frequency range. Not necessarily as versatile as I had hoped, but the switchable channels and send/return make up for any shortcomings.
  • Good Points: Bit of a gain boost with the band levels maxed, two seperate, switchable channels, effect send/return.
  • Bad Points: Two channels, but cannot be used simultaneously, so no stereo option.

  • a great half rack unit, meant as well for the table top. this thing had alot of possibilities...of course my favorite was being able to cut out frequencies for dramatic changes, as well as some great filter sweeping...great for fattening up sound. alas i had to sell mine to pay some bills...

  • The EQ Killer is useful, but it's noisy. I've tried different ways of hooking it up but i think it's just the EQ KIller. A lot of Electrix things have noise factors that you just have to get use to. Other than that though, i like the EQ Killer for its live handling. I have it hooked up to my mixer through the inserts and i run my sampler through it.
  • Good Points: It is a great EQ for live situations, lets you do some really nice sweeps, and you can set the frequency that you want to kill when you push the kill switch for either the high, mid or low.
  • Bad Points: it's noisy, not made anymore.
