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.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

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.
