BETTERMAKER KEEPS GETTING BETTER! Introducing the New Bettermaker Valve Stereo Passive Equalizer (VSPE)

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MAY 2024: TransAudio Group, the distributor of world-class audio equipment is excited to announce the new Bettermaker Valve Stereo Passive Equalizer (VSPE). A breakthrough in audio engineering, the VSPE combines the warmth of a vacuum tube stereo EQ, with the precision of digital control and recall. Marek Walaszek, inventor and founder of Bettermaker, enjoys a glowing reputation of creating award-winning, professional grade mixing and mastering hardware and software. The new Bettermaker Valve Stereo Passive Equalizer (VSPE) is the first Bettermaker product featuring original tube technology along with new company designed and manufactured transformers.

The vacuum tubes selected for the VSPE are military grade with very strict requirements for extremely low levels of noise and distortion. Bettermaker’s new transformers were designed after analyzing over a hundred different vintage transformers from esteemed manufacturers. The difference between the units proved not only audible but measurable. One of the most glaring differences arises in the lower frequency range where sound falls short of musical expectations. After years of research, Bettermaker decided to develop their own transformer that satisfied them – as musicians, engineers, and electronic developers.

Bettermaker’s VSPE includes a DAW plugin that allows you to control and recall all settings of the analog hardware via USB. Along with standard parameter control, it provides high-quality digital HPF and LPF spectrum analyzer session snapshots, dual mono operation, audio level metering, and quantize (step) mode for all hardware knobs. VSPE filters are also adjustable by dragging handles on the EQ curve graph.

“This is the real deal,” noted Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group. “Bettermaker continues to amaze the industry with both beautiful sound and digital smarts. The vintage analog sound of passive EQ’s so loved by engineers is replicated in the new Bettermaker Valve Stereo Passive Equalizer. Implementing new military grade vacuum tubes and in-house designed and manufactured transformers, the VSPE easily captures the musicality and tone of a performance with digital precision. It’s almost impossible to think of improving passive equalization beyond the Bettermaker VSPE, but I guess I’ll leave that up to Bettermaker.”
