Universal Audio Announces Maag EQ4 EQ Plug-In For UAD Platform and Apollo Audio Interfaces

Developed By Brainworx, the Maag EQ4 Plug-In
Features Six Bands of EQ and Classic Air Band Control

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 18, 2013 —In partnership with direct developer Brainworx, Universal Audio have added the Maag EQ4 Plug-In to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform.

In a self-professed quest for “audio perfection,” Cliff Maag designed the EQ4 to provide unparalleled transparency and top-end presence while maintaining a true, natural sound. Based on his classic — and long-discontinued — NTI EQ3 from the ’80s, the EQ4 features Maag’s legendary Air Band control, a major component to the vocal mix chain on Madonna’s Ray of Light as well as Celine Dion’s Taking Chances. Now, owners of Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware can record and mix with an exacting digital emulation of this unique EQ.

Available for purchase via UA's Online Store, the Maag EQ4 plug-in is part of the new UAD Software v7.4 — which also includes the Fairchild Tube Limiter Plug-In Collection.

Maag EQ4 Plug-In Features — $229

  • Adds presence to vocals, acoustic guitars, and overheads
  • Elevates treble frequencies without harshness or hiss
  • Five-position Air Band control
  • Adjusts overall EQ level with an added Trim control
  • Developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform by Brainworx
  • Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide.
