Peavey have introduced the Kosmos V2
live and recording audio processor, their next-generation subharmonic and stereo image enhancement system.
Combining the most popular features from the Peavey Kosmos Pro and original Kosmos processors, Peavey tell us that the new Kosmos V2 drastically improves the listening experience in any space with any sound system. Kosmos is a dynamic phasing technology that manipulates low and high frequencies to deepen bass and widen highs through phasing rather than equalization, and helps mask the comb-filtering problems common in live sound productions.
The Kosmos V2 features front-panel rotary controls for adjusting the parameters and levels of Kosmos processing. Subharmonics has a special Low Damping button that adjusts the â€˜tightnessâ€™ of the low bass. The Cut Sub From Mains switch directs the low-frequency energy to the subwoofers only. Subwoofer control sets the level of sub in the mix, and features a Crossover Disable switch. Low Freq and High Freq adjust their respective frequency ranges.
Peavey tell us that noted producers Kevin Shirley, Jim Wirt and Ryan Greene, as well as bassists Bootsy Collins, Mike Kroeger (Nickelback) and Traa (P.O.D.) are among a growing legion of enthusiastic Kosmos endorsers that are finding this technology useful for individual instruments and full mixes in studio and live performances.
Kevin Shirley, in fact, had this to say regarding his use of Kosmos on a recent project for Led Zeppelin, "When you stand in front of an amplifier, you get this great 'thump' from the bottom end of the cabinet. I used the Kosmos to create the sort of psycho-acoustic sensation you might get from being in close proximity to the amplifier cabinet. It enlarges the stereo image and creates extra bass.â€�
