Universal Audio has added the Maag EQ4 Plug-In to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform in partnership with direct developer Brainworx. Available for purchase via UA's Online Store, the Maag EQ4 plug-in is part of the new UAD Software v7.4.
In a self-professed quest for "audio perfection," Cliff Maag designed the EQ4 to provide unparalleled transparency and top-end presence while maintaining a true, natural sound. Based on his classic — and long-discontinued — NTI EQ3 from the '80s, the EQ4 features Maag's Air Band control, a major component to the vocal mix chain on Madonna's Ray of Light as well as Celine Dion's Taking Chances.
- Adds presence to vocals, acoustic guitars, and overheads.
- Elevates treble frequencies without harshness or hiss.
- Five-position Air Band control.
- Adjusts overall EQ level with an added Trim control.
Price: $229 - Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide.
