    Great Character EQ

    by M. Fudge. 5 out of 5 stars

    This is a great EQ for helping you think outside of the box and save time. The arrangements of parameters and frequency selections make it easy to operate and select options that never sound bad and in many cases would be the exact sound you are looking for. Although it may be true that much of this could be done with a stock EQ it wouldn't be either as fun or as quick and very rarely would you end up with as good of a result.

    It is what it is - A Beautifully Modeled EQ

    by G. Marrero. 5 out of 5 stars

    As a free EQ, it does provide another palette of colors for your tracks. As a $199 EQ, it does provide another palette of colors for your tracks, but at a steep price.

    Subtle

    Though I quite work
    I think that it does not extend to the very real machine.

    Not an usual EQ..

    by B. Klukovic. 5 out of 5 stars

    ..which does things a normal EQ would do. This one is honestly speaking only for coloration, like some kind of one-trick-pony. But if you found a track which needs this kind of color, you will be suprised how nice it works and how much more balls it gives you, especially when you need some air and not only by boosting the highs.

    Can´t explain exactly what it does for me, but it adds some kind of magic!

    It doesn't work on everything, but when it does...

    by I. Finlayson. 4 out of 5 stars

    This is one of the more esoteric EQs in UA's lineup. At first glance it appears quite limited... and, well, it is.
    Most of the time, I try this on a track and end up opting for a different EQ, but when it does work, there's nothing else like it. I almost never cut with this EQ - it's all about boosting those mids, and the high shelf doesn't seem to get harsh even with insane amounts of 10k boost. The bass control is a little unusual if you're used to typical parametric EQs, so it's well worth it to experiment here.
    Definitely spend some time with this, and try it on a lot of sources; you're bound to find something on which it excels.

    oh love that air!

    by D. Colombo. 5 out of 5 stars

    Just one of the best EQ i can imagine when it comes to vocals and guitars, brings out the air and makes all so emotional and intimate. A great plugin indeed.

    Got it for guitars

    by R. Greco . 5 out of 5 stars

    Character, but I like it. One of the few eqs that sound like the instrument but better or different and cool. Boosting highs is eerily forgiving warm and open. Sometimes on guitars as you search for tones it's like a way back machine your ear perks up and says, "heyI know that guitar tone(s) from a classic rock record somewhere."

    Do not overlook the Helios

    by B. Arkkelin . 5 out of 5 stars

    With all of the other great UA EQ plugins available, it may be easy to overlook the Helios EQ...this would be a mistake. I consistently find uses for it and it seems to make its way into every mix eventually. I found it very useful on guitars, but I use it on other things at times. I would definitely recommend the Helios EQ!!

    sweet in the middle

    by J. Couch . 4 out of 5 stars

    Including channel strips this is UAD eq number 8, it took a day to decide after starting the demo. This eq is really sweet, specially around the high-mids, without loosing any bite. The bass and top controls are little limited, 10K is a bit low for my taste. These are emulations of gear already designed, and while I learned on a DAW with sweepable parametric eq's, I never found one that sounded as good as this, despite it's fixed frequencies. This is a go-to for electric guitar, and if you need to brighten something up without loosing body, this eq does it well.

    Great!

    by G. Pearlman . 5 out of 5 stars

    I really love this EQ for it's clarity and responsive nature. I put it on guitars a lot and it pulls them right up in the mix. Gets a good mid punch without physically punching you in the head! Nice work!

    EQ Magic

    by J. Moreland . 5 out of 5 stars

    One very important lesson I've learned over many years of recording and mixing is not to engage in magical thinking. Case in point: Using EQ to try and make things bigger/brighter is an exercise in trying to bring forth things that aren't there. Always better, instead, to remove things that actually are (need more highs, cut the lows - more mids, lower the top and bottom frequencies). This EQ turns that philosophy in its head. If you've tracked a guitar with a 57 and it sounds dull, it'll find its highs. Kick drum lacking meat, it'll unearth the lows. Acoustic guitars buried in a mix, go ahead, add 6 db's at 1000 Hz - it'll sound glorious (and undistorted). All you need is a magical EQ made for just that purpose.
