The best selection of EQ plugins in music production

 

A VST equalizer (EQ) plugin lets you modify the tonal quality of audio recordings by amplifying or reducing specific frequency ranges, effectively shaping their sound profile. Plugin Alliance sells an assortment of graphic, parametric, static, dynamic, digital, and analog-modeled EQs.

Graphic EQs like the Mäag Audio EQ4 are simple to operate and use frequency bands with a fixed center frequency. In comparison, a parametric EQ like Three-Body Technology’s Kirchoff-EQ lets you freely adjust the center frequency of bands, making it a great choice for surgical processing. There are also semi-parametric EQs, such as the Dangerous Music BAX EQ, with a handful of selectable center frequencies; this particular Baxandall EQ is well-suited for adjusting the balance of your mix at a mastering level due to its smooth filters.

The AMEK EQ 200 is inspired by the revered sound of vintage Sontec EQs, marrying classic design with contemporary technology. It’s a 7-band plugin EQ equipped with Brainworx's Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) that delivers the groovy precision of EQs from the 70s and 80s. If you’re looking for a dedicated mastering EQ, Knif Audio’s Soma delivers a cleaner take on classic passive tube EQs' warm and colorful tones. Its smooth, natural sound sets it apart from tone beasts like the Millennia NSEQ-2, better suited for mixing kicks, snares, and vocals.

One of the more unique EQ VSTs offered by Plugin Alliance includes Harris Doyle’s Natalus DSCEQ, a musical passive EQ with a magnetic saturation limiting circuit. It allows you to shape the tone of your recordings while adding warmth and increasing loudness potential. Another standout EQ is TOMO Audiolab’s LISA plugin, modeled after an all-analog dynamic EQ featuring a dedicated opto compressor cell for its six bands.

Plugin Alliance ensures its VST EQ plugins are compatible with DAWs like Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Studio One. These EQ plugins are regularly updated to maintain compatibility with the latest MacOS and Windows operating systems. Additionally, all of Plugin Alliance’s VST EQs undergo extensive testing to guarantee stable performance within diverse production environments.
