Joe Meek twinQ2

The Joemeek twinq2 is everything you ever wanted in a dual studio channel…and then some!



Here’s the skinny on some changes that they’ve made recently to the original TwinQ….

     
  • The microphone input transformer is permanently assigned to the “Mic” Input. The “IRON” switch now optionally sends the “Line” input through the transformer, to add some colouration to Line sources.
  •  
  • The input “GAIN” control now operates over the range 18dB to 60dB, with improved resolution in the crucial 25dB-45dB range. Microphone inputs up to +4dBu can be accommodated without distortion (+24dBu by using the “PAD” switch).
  •  
  • As before, with the “LINE” input selected the gain is unity (0dB) at the top of the dial; the gain range is now -19dB to +22dB.
  •  
  • The “Instrument” input now has a gain range of 0dB to +40dB.
  •    
  • “PEAK” LEDs now light at +16dBu (2dB below Full Scale Digital).

They started with high quality Burr-Brown IC’s for the preamp, added an extremely musical EQ section and an optical compressor for that signature “Meek” sound. Then they included some new and innovative features, like an “Iron” switch that switches the IC front end to a transformer - completely changing the topology of the circuit. It even has 24bit, 96k A/D converters built in.

All of this comes housed in a rugged 2u chassis with a beautifully sculpted aluminium faceplate.

With sonic quality rivalling mic pre’s priced thousands of dollars more, the twinq2 sets a new standard for dual channels.
