Coming off the heels of IK Multimedia’s huge sale(s) and new Tascam Collection, they’re now giving everyone a chance to Download T-Racks EQ81 FREE! For those wondering, The T-RackS EQ 81 is a Neve 1081 emulation, really good for coloring.
This is great and quite a surprise! I always expect IK Multimedia to release Free plugins and every year, we see one of the following:
- Black 76: 1176 Compressor emulation
- Clipper: Clipper, not sure what else to say about it. Clips nicely!
- White 2A: LA2A Compressor emulation
This is the first time I’ve seen them give away their EQ 81. This is a really nice-sounding British-styled EQ. It’s similar to the 73, but with more bands which give you more control over your sound.
What We Like About This EQ (Hopefully You Will Too)
Mid Side Control: Process the Mid and Sides independently
Left/Right Processing: Those looking for a good simple way to build width in a mix or with instruments…EQ the left and right sides and you’re done!
Preamp: Both Mic and Line options, are good for beefing up your sound signal
