Notes The Alesis MICRO ENHANCER is a stereo in/stereo out devicethat adds high frequency information (high end) to program material in a different way than a normal high frequency equalizer.
Unlike most other equalizers, which boost noise as well as the signal, the MlCRO ENHANCER only boosts treble information when it already exists in the program material, thus adding the high end sparkle without boosting noise.
Also, the MICRO ENHANCER differs from, and is superior to, other types of psychoacoustic enhancers on the market since others use a distortion process which is ultimately objectionable.
The MICRO ENHANGER can be thought of as a dynamic semi-parametric equalizer, in a boost-only mode, as it is capable of performing many of the functions of a parametric.
By varying the balance between the Threshold, Mix, and Bandwidth controls, a wide variety of treble boost etfects may be achieved, all without the addition of any noise normally associated with equalizers, ordistortion elements normally associated with psychoacoustic enhancers.
