IBIS is an analog equalizer that boldly takes equalization to a new level of musicality. Each of its four bands features switch-selectable frequencies centered on and covering musical-step intervals from 32-Hz “C” to 22.35-kHz “F.” Its four overlapping bands are labeled with note names and frequency allowing for the first time a “translation” between musician-speak and engineer-jargon. The bandwidth control has similar notation with adjustment from 0.2 octave to 4 octaves per band and a boost / cut range of 12 dB.
The low-cut filter is switch selectable from 20-Hz to 150-Hz with slopes of either 12-dB or 24-dB per octave. Like most Crane Song products, IBIS utilizes discrete class-A circuitry and features a truly unique and adjustable “color” function that can be applied to either the entire audio path or to any individual frequency band. A fully stepped mastering version is also available.

Frequencies: There are 24 frequencies per band for a total of 96 frequencies with the bands overlapping. They are stepped on both the mastering
and standard units.
Boost-Cut: The standard equalizer has a range to plus or minus 12 db on each band. The Mastering version has a range of plus or minus 6 db
This is stepped 0.5 db steps to 5 db and a 1 db step to 6db on the mastering version.
Bandwidth: Bandwidth in octaves is measured at full boost. The maximum is 4 octaves and a minimum is 0.2 octaves. This is a Q range from 0.15 to
17 On the mastering unit this is stepped with 12 steps.
