Enhance your mix
ENHANCED EQ is a unique, easy-to-use effect that will provide your tracks with the analog sound of the masters – equally potent at adding subtle definition as rich loudness. Modeled from a boutique studio standard, this is the go-to EQ for warmth, body and definition at the bottom end of your mix, or for crisping up the midrange. Exclusively emulated by the masters at Softube, ENHANCED EQ has a character and presence recognizable from a vast number of top productions.

Now NI brings you this secret weapon as a native plug-in for the first time, running individually in your DAW, and ready to enliven and enhance your music. 

Simplicity and excellence
Uncluttered and simple to use, this exceptional EQ has just three bands, yet exhibits some unusual parameters. The Low can be both cut and boosted simultaneously, leading to a special curve responsible for the distinctive clear-yet-weighty bottom end.

Ideal for EQ'ing single instruments such as kick drums and basses, ENHANCED EQ also excels in adding clarity to the high midrange – use the high-cut for a smooth roll-off to avoid noisy clatter and help synths and drum loops find their place in the mix. The stereo capability and master gain give you further control over the full-bodied, pro-level sound.
