Overview

Revered for its startling realism and transparent musicality, the Millennia NSEQ-2 is a go-to parametric EQ for many of the world’s leading studios and mastering houses. Its unique Twin Topology design and pure Class A transformer-less circuitry offers a simplicity which yields a powerful, sonically neutral, analog EQ.

The plugin version of the Millennia NSEQ-2 is a faithful digital model of this remarkable piece of ultra high-end hardware, brought to you by the modeling experts of Brainworx. This brings a state-of-the-art boutique EQ to your DAW.

A key to the Millennia sound is their Twin Topology™ technology that makes the NSEQ-2 like two world-class EQs in one. By faithfully emulating Millennia’s circuits, the Millennia NSEQ-2 plugin provides the sonic soul of the original.

The Millennia NSEQ-2 plugin also includes features not found in the hardware version, including M/S processing. Link mode speeds up your workflow, allowing you to adjust the left and right channels simultaneously, while the addition of an Output Trim control brings another level of usefulness to an already stellar EQ. Push the Millennia NSEQ-2 plugin’s front-end hard for a little extra color, and then back down the Output Trim so you don’t overload plugins further down your signal chain.

    Using the Millennia NSEQ-2 has made me completely re-think how I use EQ. Where I used to avoid using EQ at all, the NSEQ-2 has been employed to put just the right touch in a recording. The NSEQ-… Read More

    The NSEQ2 is not only remarkably clean and quiet, but also boasts an extremely wide dynamic range.

    Simply the most musical and analogue plugin I have tried. The EQ is so clean and I have not heard a compressor sound so close to the real thing.

    Beautiful EQ which pretty much matches the EQ on my Origin STT-1 channel. Just totally perplexed why this was not coded for DSP, when the TCL-2 was and pretty much all other PA plugs are. Here's… Read More
