Overview

Harrison® 32C / 32C SE Channel EQ Plug-In

Four Channel EQ Modeled Directly From Certified Hit-Making Console

Partnering with Harrison Consoles Ltd. and engineer Bruce Swedien, Universal Audio recreates the Harrison four-band 32C channel EQ from Bruce’s own Harrison 32 Series console. Countless hit records have been made with Harrison consoles, from Abba to Sade. Most notably, the 32 Series is the desk on which many Michael Jackson records were made, including Thriller — the best-selling album recording of all time. Includes DSP-Optimized SE version.

Using the 3232C almost exclusively for 25 years since he made Thriller, Grammy-winning producer/engineer Bruce Swedien continues his love affair with the desk he calls “marvelous sounding”, shaping hits with artists such as Jennifer Lopez. Bruce Swedien lends his enthusiastic endorsement to Universal Audio’s meticulous model of 32C EQ, straight from Bruce’s own Harrison 3232 which includes presets made up of Mr. Swedien’s favorite EQ settings. “I never dreamed Universal Audio’s design team could come so unbelievably close to capturing the sound of my beloved desk; the additional Harrison EQs within Pro Tools are becoming a Godsend.”

The Harrison 32C contains four overlapping parametric bands. Each of the Low (40-600 Hz), Low-Mid (200Hz to 3.1 kHz), Hi-Mid (400 Hz to 6 kHz), and High (900 Hz to 13 kHz) bands have fully sweepable Frequency and Gain Controls. Instead of traditional Q controls, the 32C has “circuitry that automatically adjusts the effective bandwidth”, as described in original Harrison documentation, adding to the device’s signature sound. Furthermore, the Low band is switchable from Peak to Shelving EQ. Finally, the Harrison 32C features 12 dB per octave High and Low Pass filters which can be switched in or out. Additional “Digital Only” features include Gain, Phase Reverse, and a global Power switch.

    (Manic Street Preachers, Kylie Minogue)

    "The UAD Harrison 32C has exactly the same crystal 'Nashville' top-end and super-present upper mids as the hardware I know so well. It's golden on guitars and drums!"

    Hans Zimmer

    (The Dark Knight, Gladiator)

    "You can just get a really nice ‘ping’ into things with it [the Harrison 32C EQ plug-in], a lovely top end."

    (Michael Jackson)

    “I never dreamed UA’s design team could come so unbelievably close to capturing the sound of my beloved desk."

    Geoff Sanoff

    (Sonic Scoop)

    "The [Harrison] 32C could become my first choice in many applications simply because it covers so much ground."

    Paul White

    (Sound On Sound)

    "[The Harrison 32C EQ] has the ability to lift elements within a sound or mix without compromising the overall sound..."

    One of the best plug-in EQs i have ever used. Its simple, versatile and sounds great. Its known to sound good on guitars, but to me it sounded great on everything, really. I ve compared it to all the other EQs from UAD and it ended up being the best allround EQ to me. … Read More

    Musical!
    by T. Spielmacher (Friday 4 January, 2013)

    I had a hard time deciding which EQ console to start with but decided on the Harrison. The Neve and SSL are amazing but as a guy who requires simplicity but beauty, paired with it being perhaps not the classic popular choice, I love this so very much. Thank u UA! … Read More

    Harrison EQ
    by M. Maddock (Monday 31 December, 2012)

    A friend of mine has just bought an oldish Harrison desk so I was intrigued to hear the plug in..... Stunning ! & I have only tweaked a few factory, pre-sets but to give cymbals/overheads a great top end without losing any character is beautiful..... Instruments never stop sounding as they should... … Read More
