A classic British EQ emulation that adds rich analogue warmth to any track
Overloud EQ84 is the simulation of one of the most renowned Discrete Class A British EQ, used in countless hits from the ‘70s to nowadays. All the components of the original circuit have been modeled, including the rich harmonics and saturations that naturally occur when the equalizer is operating.
OCTOBER 2017: New update - now includes Scribble Strips and Meter Calibration. View Updates Page for full details
Hyper-realistic simulation of the original British Class-A EQ, thanks to the 4th generation DSP technology
Simulation of all transformers in the original unit
Low CPU usage: more than 1500 instances on a Macbook Pro Retina
Lots of presets designed in real mixing sessions
PUSHING THE EMULATION FORWARD
EQ84 emulates one of the most desired EQ module in the history of recording and mixing. Its warm, fat, and rich sound, with an incredibly detailed midrange, still excite even the most experienced engineers who are mixing with it.
EQ84 includes the simulation of both the Line and Mic preamplifiers. this section can be pushed in order to enrich the sound with its characteristic musical saturation.
EQ84 exactly reproduces the original frequency response even in the highest-end of the spectrum, near the Nyquest frequency, which is the point where most of the digital simulations fail. Thanks to a proprietary DSP technology, Overloud has been able to achieve this result with no phase distortion and without using oversampling.
The Cue button allows to hear the part of the frequency spectrum that is being affected by that band.
CONTINUOUS FREQUENCY SELECTION
While the original hardware has preset frequencies only, the EQ84 allows to select all the intermediate frequencies.
ADDITIONAL MID BAND
While the original hardware has one Mid band only, we added a second band for increased flexibility.
OVERLOUD GEMS come in the following plug-in formats: VST, AudioUnit, AAX plus a standalone application.
All in both 32 and 64 bit, and for Mac and Windows. You will be able to load and use them in all common DAWs.
