EQ84: Discrete Class A British EQ
Overloud EQ84 is the simulation of one of the most renowned Discrete Class A British EQ, used in countless hits from the ‘70s to nowadays. All the components of the original circuit have been modeled, including the rich harmonics and saturations that naturally occur when the equalizer is operating.
- Hyper-realistic simulation of the original British Class-A EQ, thanks to the 4th generation DSP technology
- 6 bands eq: 2 shelving, 2 peaking, 1 high cut, 1 low cut
- Individual band Cue
- Continuous frequency selection
- Mic/Line preamp simulation
- Simulation of all transformers in the original unit
- Low CPU usage: more than 1500 instances on a Macbook Pro Retina
- Multilevel undo-redo
- A/B Comparison
- Lots of presets designed in real mixing sessions
- Scribble Strips: take notes anywhere on the plugin panel
EQ84 extends the features of the original hardware and joins the flexibility of the digital world to the character of the analog processing.
The Cue button allows to hear the part of the frequency spectrum that is being affected by that band.
While the original hardware has preset frequencies only, the EQ84 allows to select all the intermediate frequencies.
While the original hardware has one Mid band only, we added a second band for increased flexibility.
"I'am absolutely in love with the EQ84!!!!!
A touch of 10 kHz changes everything, including the mix buss.
You really nailed the Neve saturation sound - it’s so musical and satisfying to the ear."
- Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry, Mika, OneRepublic)
A UNIQUE TONE
PUSHING THE EMULATION FORWARD
EQ84 emulates one of the most desired EQ module in the history of recording and mixing. Its warm, fat, and rich sound, with an incredibly detailed midrange, still excite even the most experienced engineers who are mixing with it.
EQ84 includes the simulation of both the Line and Mic preamplifiers. this section can be pushed in order to enrich the sound with its characteristic musical saturation.
EQ84 exactly reproduces the original frequency response even in the highest-end of the spectrum, near the Nyquest frequency, which is the point where most of the digital simulations fail. Thanks to a proprietary DSP technology, Overloud has been able to achieve this result with no phase distortion and without using oversampling.
