EQ550: Proportional Q American EQ

EQ550: PROPORTIONAL Q AMERICAN EQ

Overloud EQ550 is modeled after a renowned American EQ created with custom op-amps. It has a Proportional-Q design, meaning that the bandwidth of the filters becomes narrow when the gain of the  filter increases. For low gain settings the EQ delivers a smoother tone: its character becomes more and more aggressive when the bands gain band is raised. This design makes the EQ550 unique.

 
Hyper-realistic simulation of the original Proportional Q equalizer, thanks to the 4th generation DSP technology
 
5 bands eq: 2 shelving/peaking, 2 peaking, 1 bandpass
 
Individual band Cue
 
Continuous frequency selection
 
Simulation of all transformers in the original unit
 
Low CPU usage: more than 1500 instances on a Macbook Pro Retina
 
Multilevel undo-redo
 
A/B Comparison
 
Lots of presets designed in real mixing sessions
 
Scribble Strips: take notes anywhere on the plugin panel

 

BEYOND THE ORIGINAL HARDWARE

EQ550 extends the features of the original hardware and joins the flexibility of the digital world to the character of the analog processing.

Band Cue
 

BAND CUE

The Cue button allows to hear the part of the frequency spectrum that is being affected by that band.

Continuous
 

CONTINUOUS FREQUENCY SELECTION

While the original hardware has preset frequencies only, the EQ550 allows to select all the intermediate frequencies.

Additional Mid
 

ADDITIONAL MID BAND

While the original hardware has one Mid band only, we added a second band for increased flexibility.


"You guys nailed this one!
It's the definite replacement for the 550!"

A UNIQUE TONE

Proportional Q

 

PUSHING THE EMULATION FORWARD

EQ550 emulates one of the most desired EQ module in the history of recording and mixing.

It has a Proportional-Q design, meaning that the bandwidth of the filters becomes narrow when the gain of the  filter increases. For low gain settings the EQ delivers a smoother tone: its character becomes more and more aggressive when the bands gain band is raised. This design makes the EQ550 unique.

EQ550 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.
