Maag Audio EQ4

EQ4 - 6 Band Equalizer with AIR BAND

Overview

You’ve heard the Maag Audio EQ4 on the vocals of artists ranging from Madonna to Celine Dion, and from the Black Eyed Peas to Snoop Dogg. Now you can have this legendary EQ right inside your DAW.

The Maag Audio EQ4’s unique design allows for exceptionally low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of your mix’s original sound while enhancing the “Airy” frequencies. The AIR BAND® interacts with the 5 band pass EQs to tonally sculpt your tracks from top to bottom with unrivaled transparency and top end presence.

The Maag Audio EQ4 is a musical EQ, not a surgical EQ, making it ideal for sweetening tracks. Add it to your vocal tracks to hear why top audio engineers who have access to every EQ ever made demand the EQ4 for vocals.

The plugin version also includes the new LEVEL TRIM feature, which can be used to turn down the overall gain if needed. Detent controls allow for easily recallable settings, and you can ALT/click to toggle between a reset for each band and the last status, which lets you easily bypass individual bands.

    One of the best sounding plug-in EQ I have come across, sounds really musical while remaining transparent. The Air Band is probably one of the first things I bring in on my master channel EQ before Eqing individual tracks.

  • Siegfried Meier

    The Maag has become my go to kick drum EQ. I feel that the tone shaping it allows for is unmatched by any other equalizer, hardware or plugin. It's a totally unique design that is as musical as it gets. Having used the hardware, I can personally attest that the work Brainworx/PA has done in cloning it is 100% accurate, and that makes me super happy! Being able to track with the plugin with the UAD Apollo is also an amazingly creative way to get the sound I want, at the tracking phase where it needs to sound correct. Couldn't live without this plugin anymore.

    This EQ is simply like no other. I use the air band constantly, brightening up vocals, drums, and the mix buss. It's crisp and truly open sounds up without being harsh. The sub and low frequency bands are perfect for adding well-defined weight to the kick drum.

  • Morgan Page

    Maag EQ is a really useful EQ for pushing that extra "air" out of vocalists. This is very handy for remixes where the vocal recordings need an extra boost.
