Michelangelo is an all-tube stereo EQ and harmonics generator designed and handbuilt by Chris Henderson from Hendyamps. Admired for its raw sonic beauty and inspiring ease of use, it ranks among the most remarkable EQ's available today.

Built in close collaboration with Hendyamps, the officially endorsed Michelangelo plugin carries the same signature sound and intuitive "right-brained" workflow, but goes far beyond the capabilities of the hardware. You get instant tube vibe and effortless tone sculpting combined with precise band control, musical dynamic EQ with transient/body separation, sound stage enhancements, and deep customization of the tube circuitry - all with the Michelangelo sound.


  • Extremely detailed emulation of the coveted all-tube Hendyamps Michelangelo EQ.
  • 4 highly interactive bands offering colorful broad-strokes EQ and harmonic generation.
  • Extra parametric bands and HP/LP filters for precise EQ'ing from inside the tube EQ circuit.
  • Per band Transient/Body Mix to focus EQ on transient or sustained parts of the signal.
  • Per band Mid/Side Mix to focus EQ on mid or side information.
  • Per band analog-style dynamic EQ with above/below Threshold and Attack/Release controls.
  • Per band tube Drive control for frequency specific saturation independent of band gain.
  • Aggression and Calibration controls for sonically different ways to gain stage the tube circuit.
  • Detailed model of transformer and tube stages including complex interaction with EQ bands.
  • Tube Blend between a hardware matched triode and a new custom pentode topology.
  • Unique control over natural tube dynamics affecting saturation and transient response.
  • Adjustable crosstalk and channel tolerance for a clean or authentic analog sound stage.
  • Modern workflow improvements like auto gain, band soloing, and gain scaling.
  • Native support for both Intel and Apple Silicon processors.
