Overview

The elysia museq matches premium sound shaping capabilities with optimally matched parameters and the highest quality components.

Brainworx, using advanced circuit modeling technology, captured all the color and nuance of the original in this remarkable plugin. They add powerful extras like an integrated M/S matrix for mid and side processing.

Each of the two channels offers three parametric bands with a two-position switchable Q. The outer bands per side are low/high shelf, which can be separately switched into a low/high cut mode. In the cut mode, a resonance peak keeps the knee frequency from sounding overly damped, reminiscent of inductor circuits in classic designs.

Each of the five gain controllers per side can be altered from boost to cut with a single switch for easy location of problem frequencies and twice the number of available gain steps. Each channel has a switchable option for adding strong harmonic color of the signal, making two EQs in one. Many prefer the color setting for mix use and the clean for tracking, but as always, let your ears be your guide.

In addition to the stereo version with all the bells and whistles, a streamlined Mix version with a mono GUI is included.

    This very musical EQ end up on every channel.
