Harrison's Original MPC Digital EQ Recreated

Harrison Consoles and Plugivery Distribution have announced the digitally recreated plug-in version of Harrison's original MPC digital equalizer, the AVA LegacyQ Equalizer. It will be available from today, August 14, 2018, from all reputable pro audio resellers and music stores around the world in AAX, AU, VST and VST3 formats for Windows, macOS and Linux platforms respectively. Here's more details direct from Plugivery...

Harrison Consoles, a leading developer of professional audio mixing consoles for international film and television production and Plugivery, a leading audio software and virtual Instrument distributor are proud to introduce the "AVA LegacyQ" Equalizer.

Harrison’s reputation for "True Analog In-The-Box" sound is due to their unique development heritage; first creating an analog console processor and then converting the processor to digital while retaining the sound and character of the original analog console.

 "The results are quintessentially "Harrison", effortless, smooth and transparent! "

The new AVA LegacyQ is a plug-in version of Harrison's original MPC digital equalizer. It began life as a digitally-controlled analog circuit and was later adapted to digital while being used in ultra high-end post & film facilities worldwide.

Like the original, the AVA LegacyQ is optimized for use with control surfaces. Each band covers a limited range equivalent to its original analog counterpart, and the “Q” shape is designed to optimally match the operating range of a physical knob.

A high-resolution spectrum analyzer is also provided to pinpoint specific frequencies that need adjustment.


  • Harrison’s first full featured digital EQ in a plug-in.
  • 5 parametric EQ bands with selectable shape.
  • 2 filters with selectable shapes (including Harrison’s wide-bottom notch for fast & accurate repair work).
  • Harrison’s custom 4-octave frequency ranges; first developed for the 32C console in 1975.
  • Harrison’s custom "Q" knob is optimized for use with control surfaces. 
  • High precision RTA analyzer retains full resolution in the low frequencies.
  • 5 EQ bands and 2 filters are provided for optimum compatibility with Avid control surface.
  • EQ curve appears on Pro Tools mixer window, and control surface displays (AAX only).
  • Supported Formats: AAX, AU, VST, VST3
  • OS Platform Support: Windows, macOS, Linux
