PEQs are usually 3 band minimum, the better PEQs being 5 band or more in some cases. Each band should allow you to specify a center frequency, the amount of Q (band width), gain, and slope.

OK Bob, you got me there  ???.  The PEQs I've owned and used had frequency, Q, and gain, but "slope"?  Did you you mean "peaking/shelving" on the upper and lower bands perhaps?  Digital PEQs will sometimes give you a choice of peaking/shelving/HPF.  In the case of a HPF (or LPF) a slope of x dB/8ve might also be selectable, although I have yet to see it.


Oh that's a PEC for peculiar EQ...  :o


PS: I did a console back in the '70s with 4 band PEQ with switchable peaking/shelving on high and low bands.. that was an odd duck with with variable Q on the shelfs...It probably makes sense to disable the Q on the shelving sections.  I didn't have enough switch poles. 


When in doubt do what's right.
