Blue Eq is a detailed emulation of vintage-revisited semiconductor equalizer, inspired by legendary British devices. For the first time ever, this well known EQ will be available in-the-box, and with a gorgeous original GUI. Originally equipped with germanium, this EQ sounds thick & huge with its beefy bottom, musical mid-range and “expensive” air. Modeled after an incredible EQ heard on many hit records, this unit has both passive and active signal paths. This meticulously created VST version will help you transform your tracks from near-perfect to amazing. The Blue Ee features an accurately emulated selection of bands and frequencies you can choose from. Beside the precise modeling of sound and features, you will also get authentic harmonic distortions that the original unit imparts so beautifully. This is a very unique and musical sounding eq, suitable for mixing, mastering, and any other creative sound processing. We call it “The Rock'n'Roll Box” because it is so full of character and creative sound shaping possibilities.

Key Features

Overview

Logo Despite the digital revolution in the pro audio industry, many of today’s top albums are still mixed with analog outboard gear. Mixing with analog devices often still sounds better to many people. There is a very elusive and almost "magical" quality imparted from analog signal chains that is missing in the digital realm. There appears to be more weight to a mix, and the overall sound is more three dimensional. Analog devices produce electrical artifacts that affect frequency response, add harmonics, cause signal clipping and increase noise. These artifacts, which audio engineers often consider the character of a particular device, result from a combination of factors such as component grade, technology type (i.e. vacuum tubes, ICs, transistors), power supply specifications, equipment casing and other variables.
Depending on the circuit characteristics, input signal frequency response varies. Some circuits cut frequencies, others boost them. This behavior is part of the overall device character and should not be confused with user adjustable EQ.
Total harmonic distortion (THD) is based on the levels of the odd and even harmonics of an input signal, usually at a level much lower than the fundamental level. THD balance and decay are circuit dependent, and thus differ from device to device.
CrossTalk and Noise are two elements which every designer tends to avoid to not affect the audio quality. Since in the analog world they can't be avoided, fortunately in digital domain with Volterra Technology we have reduced the noise at less of -120dBfs and completely avoided CrossTalk during the sampling.
The result is an optimum full quality sound from a like-new working condition hardware.

Controls

Input Gain

Gdrive: controls the drive gain, the available gain range is 0-10 dB.

On: switch between on and bypass mode.

Low Frequency Switches : These control switches engage the shelf, the bell or turn off the low band.

Low Frequency: The low band is controlled by knob, delivering smooth shelving or bell equalization with fixed bandwidth. The available frequencies are 30Hz, 50Hz, 70Hz, 90Hz, 110Hz and 220Hz while the available gain range is approximately 0-9dB.

Low Pass Filter

Knobs 1

Mid Frequency: The mid frequency band is controlled by two knobs, delivering smooth semi-parametric midrange equalization with a fixed bandwidth. The mid frequency is selected by the left knob and the available values are 300Hz, 500Hz, 800Hz, 1200Hz, 3300Hz, 4100Hz, 6300Hz and 8300Hz. The right knob controls the available gain which is approximately ±10dB.

High Frequency Switches : These control switches engage the shelf, the bell or turn off the low band.

High Frequency: The high band is controlled by knob, delivering smooth shelving or bell equalization with fixed bandwidth. The frequency is selected by the left knob, available frequencies are 3200Hz, 4700Hz, 6800Hz, 8200Hz, 10kHz, 12kHz, 16kHz and 20kHz while the available gain range is approximately 0-9dB.

High Pass Filter

Presets

Low Shelf: This switch inserts a Low Frequency Shelf Filter  with 0-9dB of adjustable gain. This frequency represents the punch in bass drums, bass guitar, fat synths and some really serious male singers.
Low Bell: This switch inserts a Low Frequency Bell Filter, it provides 0-9dB of adjustable gain at the frequency determined by its frequency knob.
High Shelf: This switch inserts an High Frequency Shelf Filter with ±10dB of adjustable gain.
High Bell: This switch inserts an High Frequency Bell Filter with ±10dB of adjustable gain at the frequency determined by its frequency knob.
