Maag Audio EQ4

EQ4 - 6 Band Equalizer with AIR BAND

Overview

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 plug-in 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… Read more

    Maag EQ is a really useful EQ for pushing that extra "air" out of vocalists. This is very handy for remixes where the vocal recordings need an extra boost.

    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 was fortunate to work with the original MAAG EQ, and it really was a secret weapon. When I learned of the plug-in version I just bought it, no demo required. In hindsight that might not always be… Read more
