A device of a special kind

The Cologne boutique manufacturer Manultec presents the Orca Bay, an independent stereo high-end equalizer of a special kind. When designing the Orca Bay, special attention was paid to intuitive operation, effective and musical sound processing as well as the highest quality components. With this equalizer sums and bus tracks can be processed in a way previously impossible with a single device.

Work becomes a pleasure

The finely tuned interplay of what are actually very limited control options makes it possible to fix a multitude of mix problems without a lot of time-consuming screwing around, and to shape the signal according to one's own taste nuances. The shaping of depth and presence succeeds effortlessly, midrange mud can be eliminated without problems, and a somewhat too thin production can be given more punch. The Orca Bay takes over where other means would require much more time and material.

Technical refinements

Similar to a Pultec EQ, both a boost and attenuation control are available for the low end band. Unlike the traditional Pultec circuit, however, attenuation and boost here work on different characteristic frequencies that are switched over together. The high band is designed as a bell filter and equipped with a hand-wound coil , the low bands are shelf filters in RC design. To maintain maximum signal integrity, the Orca Bay is fully wired with Vovox sound conductors and built exclusively with selected components of the very highest quality.
