You can have up to 36 1/3 octave KLARK TEKNIK GEQs on a PRO series and up to 51 on an XL8, which can be patched into any output or insert point. The Graphic EQs can be controlled by a KLARK TEKNIK DN9331 Rapide fader remote which is standard on the XL8 and an option on the PRO Series or from controls on the console surface. The STS system allows the use of a select button on a Send to automatically pause the Rapide motor faders to move to settings for that send.
