Overloud has released EQ495, which they describe as the simulation of a very rare and legendary analog EQ, used as a secret weapon by many award-winning engineers. They say that, originally created for a vinyl transfer console, this EQ has then been used for both mixing and mastering thanks to its super musical curves.
A spokesperson told us, "You've always needed mixes which sounded gorgeous in people's homes and not just on your studio monitors. In fact today your target audience probably listens to their music on earbuds or with tiny computer speakers, and the mix needs to sound great on these as well. Here is where EQ495 excels: its EQ curves were designed to enhance clarity, and give presence and depth to your mixes, all while working in those frequency ranges actually available on your audience's speakers or headphones."
Pricing and Availability:
Until April 15th get EQ495 for €89 / $89 instead of €139 / $139
