SSL-Style EQ For Mac And Windows

Buying Choices

Overtone DSP tells us that, based on the E-Series channel EQ processing from one of the best-known British recording consoles, the EQ4000 comprises high frequency, high-mid, low-mid and low frequency sections. The low and high frequency sections are independently switchable between 'bell' and 'shelf' modes while the mid sections provide fully parametric equalization with variable gain, frequency and Q.

Overtone DSP says that the plug-in was developed by a design team including two former Solid State Logic (SSL) engineers, with detailed understanding of the original hardware. They tell us that it emulates both the earlier 'Brown' (82E02) and later 'Black' (82E242) versions of the original hardware while HF - HMF and LF - LMF cross-linking emulates the control interaction of the original design
