Add in the variable highpass filter, curve shaping options, and EQ control of your stereo field, and the TK Audio TK-lizer 500 is the equalizer that gives you the tools you need to shape your signature sound.
Flexibility and control for great sound The TK-lizer 500 is a very straightforward equalizer with tons sound-shaping power. It starts with balanced inputs and outputs for pristine signal routing.

Stepped-knob control means all of your settings are easily recallable from session to session and help you to keep the EQ consistent between your right and left stereo channels. For the 500 Series TK-lizer, TK Audio extended the boost/cut range to +/-8dB across the 41 discrete steps. Each channel is fitted with a level control that ranges from infinity to +6dB, also in 41 steps.
EQ control of your stereo field The TK-lizer 500's M/S function lets you shape the sound of your mid and side signals separately before they are decoded back to a stereo L/R signal. You can also adjust the width of the stereo field using the level controls. Now you can do all of your final EQing outside of your DAW for true analog warmth and response.
