No Spectrum Display on Alesis DEQ230

Hi,

I have purchased a used Alesis DEQ230 from ebay. While the unit is responding to equalizer settings and is showing the bars at different levels on different frequencies (as shown in the image), it is not showing the spectrum display. HOW TO GET THE SPECTRUM DISPLAY. PLEASE HELP.

Kind regards,
Debashis Chaudhuri

  • Hi Debashis,

    Congratulations on your purchase! The DEQ230 is a legacy product so information is limited, but I'll be happy to help!

    I apologize, but I'm not quite understanding what exactly it is you're looking for. What exactly do you mean by a spectrum analyzer? Is there a particular mode you're looking for? 

    The DEQ230 has the following modes built-in:

    • Program Mode: Allows you to use the DOWN/UP buttons to select between different programs.
    • Edit Mode: Displays which bands can be boosted or cut
    • Store Mode: Allows you to choose which program will become the new location for an editing program.
    • Bypass Mode: Allows you to hear the non-equalized audio.
    • Audition Mode: Allows you to choose from specific programs and place them into the Audition List.
    • Channel Level Mode: Can be used to adjust the output of channels A and B simultaneously. 
    Let me know if you have any additional questions!

    Hi,

    Is the display shown at above link for DEQ230D possible for DEQ230? If yes, how?

    Kind regards,

  • Hi Debashis,

    The DEQ230 and DEQ230A share all the same basic features. The only features exclusive to the DEQ230D are as followed:

    • S/PDIF coaxial digital in and out
    • MIDI in and out
    • Internal power supply

    For further questions or support, please contact your nearest support office. Their contact numbers will be listed on that page.

    I just made the same mistake...I bought a DEQ230 on eBay thinking it had the real time analyzer after seeing several YouTube videos, but sadly it doesn't. Apparently, its a unique feature found only on the DEQ230D.

    I found this while Googling today:

    Real-time Analysis mode (*DEQ230D only):

    The DEQ230D is capable of another "light show" that is even more useful than it is entertaining. Real-time analysis (RTA) modules the Band Gain LEDs to show you exactly which frequencies are present in the audio signal that is passing through the DEQ230D. This is an extremely useful tool that has been a main stay of serious sound reinforcement engineers for decades.To enter RTA mode, press the two leftmost [BAND SELECT]buttons on Channel A (25 Hz and 31 Hz). Immediately, theDEQ230D will start giving you visual feedback as to what is going on with the instrument or mix that is being processed. RTA mode monitors the outputs of the DEQ230D, so when you press the[BYPASS] button you will be seeing what you are hearing: the unprocessed signal.
