Unlock a parametric EQ plugin that delivers the sound of early hardware
The AMEK EQ 200 is an EQ VST that emulates the classic parametric equalizers that started it all. Renowned for their musicality and surgical precision, the early parametric EQs of the 70s and 80s became mainstays in the world’s top mixing and mastering studios. To this day, they continue to set the standard for analog mastering EQs.
Adjust each band’s center frequency and bandwidth
Engineers George Massenburg and Burgess Macneal created the first-ever parametric EQs. They initially worked together and then perfected their designs at separate companies. These paradigm-shifting EQs offered groundbreaking new features, including parametric control: the ability to adjust each band's center frequency and bandwidth.
Work with a timeless mastering EQ plugin
The innovative controls introduced by Massenburg and Macneal marked a groundbreaking shift in audio engineering. Despite technological advancements, these original equalizers still excel in sound and build quality, often commanding prices over $7,000 for well-maintained units. The sound of these early EQs is now available as a parametric EQ plugin in your DAW.
