I'd take a serious look at some kind of Apb parametric.  I would be more likely to use it as a group insert for lav mics or podiums.  

Some things I'd like to see would be:
-the much beloved high pass filter.  Based on how it's made it's way on all of your other products I doubt that'll be a hard sell.
-at least 4 bands of fully parametric eq.  
-I like for all bands to have some facility for 20-20k operation. I'd prefer only one range selection button.  I bet you guys can come up with a better UI on this than me.
-Xlr and trx i/o since I would use it with single point inserts and consoles with varied output connectors.

While you're at it, I'd love to see you guys enter the fray with Midas and Cadac in the 2 channel strip department.  Don't forget to release that monitor console too.  Come on guys, get on with it!

Five bands is not too much more those pesky, doomed to fail mic applications. Like a soft-spoken talker, with a lavalier, who roves in and out of in front of the left or right mains or front fills (those rat bastards !).

And make the HPF variable up to perhaps 400Hz and with a steep slope. 18dB per octave is much more effective than 1st and 2nd order. 24dB might be pushing the (pot) cost. But it'd be appreciated Twisted Evil

Chuck,

How about a piece of kit similar to a Midas XL42 or a KT DN405/410 PEQ?  I'm sure some people would jump on that...

I think the first thing our engineers will have to do is design the device that will enable the day to last 28 Hours or longer.  They are currently preparing ProDesk-8 to start full production (Beta units are currently in the field) and we hope that most ProSpec products introduced at Infocomm will begin shipping by the end of this year.  And there are other projects.

But the new ProSpec chassis system is well developed by Olga, so these requests may not be that far out for we to do, but in the growing land of digital, would anyone really want to buy any new  analog EQ's and these other suggested devices to the levels necessary to make it profitable to a manufacturer like APB?

Will APB join the digital train anytime soon?

Everyone will eventually join but the question is when and how.   But regardless, we will NOT leave analog behind and we do feel analog has not yet reached its full potential.

When you finally introduce the APB Digital Mixer, I suspect it will not only sound stellar but be an ergonomic joy to use, with a rational and intuitive UI.

I'd love to be a beta tester when this happens.

Have fun, good luck.

Rane recently discontinued their PEQ55, which was really a digital product with almost all the features mentioned here, that happened to look like an analog device.  You can still buy them from some dealers, but I am pretty sure they aren't manufacturing any more.
