Overview

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. 

Features

  • High end model of the Millennia Class A Twin Topology™ (Vacuum Tube & Discrete Solid State) Parametric Equalizer
  • Fully parametric stereo EQ with unprecedented sonic purity & integrity
  • Triode 300 V Vacuum Tube and All Discrete J-FET Solid State signal path
  • Transformer-less, high voltage, pure Class A
  • Additional M/S (mid/side) mode for extended mastering possibilities (the hardware doesn´t have the M/S mode!)
  • Constructed for demanding professional applications
  • The non-linear behavior of the hardware has been fully captured in the plugin version by the Brainworx engineers.

    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.
