You’ve heard the Maag Audio EQ4 on the vocals of artists ranging from Madonna to Celine Dion, and from the Black Eyed Peas to Snoop Dogg. Now you can have this legendary EQ right inside your DAW.

The Maag Audio EQ4’s unique design allows for exceptionally low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of your mix’s original sound while enhancing the “Airy” frequencies. The AIR BAND® interacts with the 5 band pass EQs to tonally sculpt your tracks from top to bottom with unrivaled transparency and top end presence.

The Maag Audio EQ4 is a musical EQ, not a surgical EQ, making it ideal for sweetening tracks. Add it to your vocal tracks to hear why top audio engineers who have access to every EQ ever made demand the EQ4 for vocals.

The plugin version also includes the new LEVEL TRIM feature, which can be used to turn down the overall gain if needed. Detent controls allow for easily recallable settings, and you can ALT/click to toggle between a reset for each band and the last status, which lets you easily bypass individual bands.

Download the full function 14-day demo (no dongle required!) today and hear for yourself how adding a little “Air” to your tracks can bring your mixes to the next level.

    One of the best sounding plugin EQ I have come across, sounds really musical while remaining transparent. The Air Band is probably one of the first things I bring in on my master channel EQ before… Read More

    This EQ is simply like no other. I use the air band constantly, brightening up vocals, drums, and the mix buss. It's crisp and truly open sounds up without being harsh. The sub and low frequency… Read More

    The Air-band alone on this little box makes it worth purchasing. Though small in features it does what so many equalizers cannot do, and can add top-end that's super silky, giving tracks… Read More

    I use this EQ constantly. I probably use it mostly on vocals, but I find myself using this plugin on individual drums as well as drum busses obsessively. The Air Band is delicious and adds a top… Read More

    In all honesty having tested this against the hardware version and the UAD plugin I can say I am very impressed. Identical to the UAD and a very close recreation of our beloved Air EQ. Well worth it.
    Plugin Alliance response
    Thank you for the feedback! We were actually behind the UAD version as well so glad to hear that the plugin delivers on both platforms!
