The Gem EQP is the most realistic and accurate emulation of three iconic Passive EQ units, in a single plugin. In addition to offering the most faithful emulation available today, it allows to extend the original tone capabilities by adding features which are not available on the analog units.
- Emulations inspired to Pultec* EQP-1A, MEQ-5 and HLF 3C
- Integrated programmable Clipper for punchy tones
- Frequency response graphic display for full control of the unit
- Obsessively accurate recreation of the original harmonic generation, with Overloud's Harmonic Matching technique
- Resizable graphic interface
- Selectable high oversampling mode
- Internal operating level calibration
- Multilevel undo-redo
THREE UNITS IN ONE PLUGIN
LOW & HIGH
The Low & High unit is the most know one: it features two bands with individual boost and attenuation parameters as well as an additional treble attenuation control. The attenuation parameter is centered on a different frequency than the boost, allowing to create dips after the boosted frequency. This creates deep and basses and a very in-focus and smooth top-end.
The MID unit offers two boosting bands an one attenuation band. The original circuit is fully passive and has two transformers: one at the input and one at the output, which add harmonics on the transients. In addition to its unique frequency response, MID module delivers a super-musical coloration to your tracks.
HIGH & LOW CUT
Another fully passive circuit allows to select the bandwith in a very musical way.
EQP extends the features of the original hardware and combines the flexibility of the digital world to the character of the analog processing.
With the built-in programmable clipper you can enhance the transients and add punch to the recordings.
You can monitor the real frequency response of each EQ module or of the whole unit.
You can select the unit calibration to change the harmonic generation.
PUSHING THE EMULATION TO A NEW LEVEL
EQP emulates the most desired EQ modules in the history of recording and mixing. Their warm, fat, and rich sound, with an incredibly detailed midrange, still excite even the most experienced engineers who are mixing with it.
The original tone shaping circuits are based on passive design, which gives them a unique tonal character: however, in order to compensate the loss of level of the passive circuit, the hardware units are equipped with an input transformer and an output tube amplifier, which creates very musical harmonics as well as a deep and warm bass sensation.
This is where most of the digital emulations fail. The EQP uses the Overloud's unique Harmonic Matching technology in order to recreate the original "coloration" in a way that has never been possible before.
