Overview

Cambridge EQ Plug-In

5-Band Switchable Parametric or Shelf EQ Capable of Handling Any Equalizing Chore

The Cambridge EQ is a popular UA exclusive, featuring five bands of switchable parametric or shelving EQ, plus comprehensive high and low pass filters. Choose from three types of Q for the parametric bands, and 17 different curve types for the cut filters. The interface features a graphical frequency response curve with zoom controls for fine adjustment, as well as adjustment of the gain, resonance, and frequency of each band. Unlike most EQ plug-ins, each filter is designed to emulate the response of a classic analog filter. The result is both surgical precision and ultra-smooth sound, useful in applications from mixing to mastering.

Advanced editing features include graphical frequency response curve with zoom controls for fine adjustment, as well as adjustment of the gain, resonance, and frequency of each band on the graphic display. All of these features allow the Cambridge EQ to handle every EQ'ing chore, from the subtleties of mastering to radical tone shaping.

    The cambridge eq is is my "Go To" Eq plugin
    by B. Mclendon (Tuesday 17 December, 2013)

    UAD’s Cambridge EQ is very similar to Sonnox’s Oxford EQ in terms of its colourful graphic layout as well as functionality. Cambridge wins me over with its pristine yet warm sound quality. This EQ is often described as being “surgical”. Indeed it does provide a really detailed, flexible … Read More

    by P. Munch (Sunday 1 September, 2013)

    I use this EQ on every single track I produce. I do use other plugins like flux and waves, but this baby is my workhorse. Having access to the butterworth 3-6 filters is helpful in getting my basses and kicks to sit perfectly in the mix. … Read More
