ACQUA - Pensado EQ


Acustica Audio and Studio DMI have joined forces with Grammy®-winning mix engineer Dave Pensado (Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé) to create a brand new, powerful EQ plug-in for the contemporary mixing engineer. The 'Pensado EQ' is the first VST/AU/AAX plug-in ever released carrying the signature of Dave Pensado, who is not only one of the biggest names in the music industry but also co-hosts the most successful weekly show focusing on everything audio and music production, 'Pensado's Place'.

Dave's experience at your fingertips

The Pensado EQ is the result of a scrupulous - almost obsessive - analysis of all those fine details that characterize Dave's unique workflow and approach to mixing. It sports four strategically selected frequency bands, LP/HP filters and two selectable preamplifiers for extended analog flavor.

Each frequency band emulates different hardware machines that Dave has used over the years and have contributed to crafting his sonic trademark. It took months of hard work, but we finally managed to condense Dave's long-established experience into a single processor.


The perfect tool for modern productions

Thanks to its intelligent layout, the Pensado EQ is designed to be your primary digital mixing tool, letting you quickly dial in the proper settings for any track. Plus, thanks to Dave's own carefully programmed presets, you always have a solid starting point to start mixing your songs.

The Pensado EQ is exceptionally versatile. While it is perfectly capable of vintage-style mojo, its real focus is the sought-after sound of modern Hip-Hop, Pop and Electronic productions.  Now you can give punch to your kicks, weight to your bass, sheen to your vocals and body to your instruments with a few simple moves.
