Anyone used a Behringer UltraCurve Pro?

    This may not be the right forum for this question, I don't know....

    Anyhow: as a strictly short-term stop-gap measure (while I review my options as to acoustic treatments) I was thinking about getting a not-too-expensive graphic equaliser or parametric equaliser for my front stereo channels to compensate for some annoying room modes. I wondered how the Behringer UltraCurve holds up for its price. Does it mangle the sound so badly it's worse than useless? Is there a better (but not too much more expensive) alternative?

    Mr Buns (hi there! :hiya: ) - has previously suggested a QSC DSP4, which sounds interesting, but that's at a price level where I'd have to be planning on keeping it to justify buying one!

    Edit: Actually I didn't explain that very well: it isn't just a question of room acoustics - I think I am also going to need something that lets me turn up the treble for especially poor quality Sky broadcasts. But the original question about the Behringer device remains.

    Hi there! :D

    I got recommended having a look at rane equalisers (i think). They are analoguey affairs but a fair few of the US guys seemed convinced it was good. Again it might be expensive unless you can find one used. And i think that the equaliser that svs recommend is supposed to be fairly good..... though these are not graphic affairs and to be honest i was always wondering how such simple devices could match to a complex thing like the BFD (or the ultracurve?).
