The Joemeek threeQ is like having one channel of a professional recording studio in a small box. It takes a microphone or instrument, amplifies it, compresses and equalizes it ready to be recorded. Simple to use yet extremely powerful, the threeQ will bring out the best in any microphone or instrument and give the gloss of a professional studio production to all your performances. As well as recording it will also be found useful for live work.

Built into a compact ½ rack chassis, we used the same Burr-Brown IC's for the Mic Pre that you'll find on our more expensive studio channels. We then added an extremely musical EQ section and an optical Compressor, for that signature "Meek" sound.

With inputs to accept everything between microphone and instrument levels, the threeQ sounds much larger than it's size!
