A Piece of Recording History

In the continuing effort to faithfully recreate classic Motown audio products for today’s recording studios, Acme Audio is proud to announce the highly anticipated release of our Motown EQ. An absolute legend among audio engineers and producers, only 48 of the original Motown EQs were ever produced – and it’s considered one of Chief Engineer Mike McLean’s pinnacle achievements at Motown Studios. With its transformer balance audio path and gain makeup amplifier section, this 7-band graphic equalizer was a vast improvement to the products that were commercially available in the Motown era. Acme Audio had the honor of spending several weeks with the late Mike McLean reverse engineering an original Motown EQ and had his ongoing guidance to faithfully recreate and reintroduce this classic piece of equipment to the recording world. No components were compromised in this reproduction… every inductor, capacitor, and transformer was either sourced from original manufacturers or painstakingly recreated to match the performance and sonic quality of the original Motown EQ. In essence, this is the closest you will ever come to owning this essential piece of recording history.
