High shelf EQ on the cheap

Postby Solderman » Mon Feb 10, 2014 4:40 am

I'm looking for any suggestions on a sweepable analogue high-shelf EQ that can go down at least to 1 khz. Gentle slope is fine, in fact I've considered making a passive one, made with discrete components, to use just for attenuation, but if there's a quick and cheap solution with little to no discernible distortion, I'd like to try that first.

Not strictly a high shelf but the Tilt EQ circuit from the music thing reverb is simple and sounds very nice. On page 2 of this schematic.

Should work in a similar way to a high shelf as it cuts the lows as it boosts the highs and vice versa.
