The Rane ME 60 is a 2-channel, 1/3-octave constant-Q micrographic equalizer. The ME 60 utilizes compact 20 mm sliders. Two adjustable band-limiting filters add to each channels' versatility. The Low Cut filter has a range from 10 Hz to 250 Hz, and the High Cut filter sweeps from 3 kHz to 40 kHz, rolling off unwanted frequencies at both ends of the spectrum.
The active filter sections feature Rane's innovative constant-Q (constant bandwidth) design. This means the bandwidth of each individual filter is guaranteed to be narrow enough to prevent unwarranted interaction between filters, yet wide enough to produce exactly the type of correction curve demanded by even the most unusual acoustic surroundings. This differs dramatically from conventional designs of the past, encumbered with the unfortunate characteristic of changing bandwidth when changing boost/cut amounts.
Front panel controls and indicators, aside from the sliders, include an overall Level control for each channel as well as Overload indicators and passive Bypass switches. The rear of the unit provides 1/4" Tip-Ring-Sleeve phone, RCA phono, and XLR connectors for each of the Inputs and Outputs. The Inputs and Outputs are fully actively balanced (except the RCA's). Unbalanced sources may be connected through the use of either mono 1/4" TS connectors or by tying the ring to the sleeve on 1/4" TRS plugs.
