    Hi all,
    I’m not sure if it is just my surface, but I have noticed that the led readout is substantially different to the actual frequency in the eq section. ie: selecting 5k, actually shows around 2.5k on the leds. All four bands seem to be misaligned.
    Anybody else noticed this?
    Cheers,
    Darren

    Is your EQ set to 20 Hz – 20kHz range?
    If so, then that’s the reason.

    Interesting! I’ll switch eq modes and see if it matches up.
    Is this a known bug that is on the “to do” list?

    surely not a bug if you switch to 20Hz-20Khz mode the legends which were not intended for that wide must be wrong, well it makes sense to me.[:D]

    Even within the bandwidth of each section there is a mismatch. I would prefer to see the leds track accurately within their intended range and then remain “pinned” at either end of their travel as you adjust past that point.
    I must admit I had never noticed this myself(I don’t normally look at the leds), a visiting band engineer pointed it out last weekend.

    If you are in 20-20K eq mode then just ignore the legend and know that the LED position now represents the full 20-20kHz range. Change back to normal mode if you have guest engineers or they will get very confused! Maybe an EQ overlay panel with graphics for 20-20k mode would be a good idea?

    Cheers

    Could always look at the display on the PEQ page I guess.

    i strongly aggree with the statement below….if you dont know that its in 20-20k mode, then it is very confusing!
