An aged producer would know how important your basic sound shaping tool, EQ, is. There may be different reasons to use an EQ such as,

– Transparent Frequency Manipulation

– Colouring Frequency Manipulation

– Mid – Side Eq

This little list of free & affordable EQ plugins inspired us in their workflow towards these different characteristics.

 

  MEQUALIZER (MELDA PRODUCTION) (FREE)

 

MEqualizer01

MEqualizer is a 6-band equalizer, with 7 filter types for each band, integrated tube saturation, and harmonics control. It also provides an advanced visualization including a spectrum analyzer and sonogram.

Features,

* 9 filter types for each band with quick adjustment
* Tube saturation
* M/S, single channel, up to 8 channels surround processing…
* Smart randomization
* Adjustable up-sampling 1x-16x

This free EQ is great for transparent manipulations and m-s actions, not for coloring.

 

SONIMUS EQ & SONIMUS EQ PRO (FREE & AFFORDABLE)

 

sonimus-soneq-pic-600x188

 

SonEQ is a digital equalizer that takes parts from some vintage gear and combines them. A great coloring EQ. Sad that the free version is removed from their website (you may find it elsewhere) and only the pro is available.

* Musical Filters

* Vintage-Warm-Analog Sound

This is best for coloring EQ actions, distorts in a beautiful way.

 

SLICK EQ (FREE)

 

SlickEQ_blue_flat

 

SlickEQ is a mixing/mastering equalizer with a nice warm sound. A free plugin to shape and colour your sound.

* Four output stages: “Linear”, “Silky”, “Mellow” and “Deep”

* Advanced saturation algorithms

FABFILTER’S PRO Q2  (PREMIUM)

 

pro-q_flat_300

Fabfilter Pro Q 2 has a well defined & transparent sound with a neat user interface. Like Mequalizer, Pro Q 2 has M-S options and almost endless bands and Q values to work with. It is not really affordable, but worth checking out the demo.

* Up to 24 EQ bands

* Phase Invert option to change polarity

* Mid/side mode where you can EQ the mid and side signals separately

* Analyzer

This EQ is great for transparent manipulations and m-s actions even on mastering stage but surely not for coloring.

This list is to show that you do not have to pay loads of money for various quality EQ manipulations.

Cheers,

Oz

  • nice little list man. didn’t check how well they perform but both melda and fabfilter implemented extended slope options on their lo/hi cut edges, from 6 to 96 db/oct … sound quite surgical on your freq manip dimension . on the other hand, fabfilter being affordable is bit arguable on my side 🙂
