The AQ560 based on Classic American EQ from the late '60s, the 10-Band graphic equalizer features precision filtering and high headroom, ideal for signal enhancement.


  • Modeled 2 revision vintage EQ;
  • 10 bands of proprietary equalization;
  • Familiar graphics operation on one octave centers;
  • 12 dB of boost/cut per band;
  • «Proportional Q» narrows filter Q at extremes;
  • IN/OUT switch — allows the user to bypass the Graphic Eq for before/after comparisons;
  • Stereo (Mono), Mid or Side EQ Modes.

The curve shaping potential is unmatched, while unique Proportional Q design intuitively widens the filter bandwidth at lower boost/cut levels and narrows it at higher settings.

The AQ560 extends the features of the original hardware and joins the flexibility of the digital world to the character of the analog processing. Allows you to choose between equalizer modes (Stereo, Mid, Side) and remove analogue saturation from the processing circuit to deliver pure digital sound.

The AQ560 is handy when you need to make EQ adjustments on larger parts of the spectrum instead of a restricted area. Boosting or cutting several bands at once will radically alter the sound of a track, be it a thin, weak snare that needs low end or a dull vocal that needs to be opened up.


  • Double click — reset to default value;
  • Shift — reduce knob/fader sensitivity.

I was skeptical initially about a plugin emulating great hardware. I was pleasantly surprised with the result of testing the AQ560! It sounds great and behaves just like the original. And a sale price seals the deal.

So I was looking for an alternative to the Waves API 560 (mainly because I hate paying the update prices) and this thing fits the bill perfectly. I've also used the IK Multimedia 560 and it's not bad but the scale of the EQ bands seem a bit heavy handed for me. The other features I enjoy about this guy are the mid/side functionality and the fact that there are two different analog harmonic distortion modes to choose from. Also you can disarm this completely. I've always enjoyed using the 560 on toms and this one does not disappoint. I highly recommend it.
