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.

    "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!"

    (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."

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

    Fun and beautiful to work with
    by L. Pettersson (Friday 6 June, 2014)

    Since purchasing this has become one of my favourite EQs to use. Sound of this is very smooth and soft. I would say that this is almost an opposite to API. Filters are very good too. Its almost impossible to get a bad sound with this eq. Highly recommended! … Read More

    A very special EQ
    by G. NOTERIS (Thursday 26 December, 2013)

    My first purchase after the Pultec Collection and a lot of demos. The interaction between gain and bandwidth works great and the result always seems to sound right, at least to my ears. Filters are really sweet and natural. A must have ! … Read More

    Exactly the same sonic characteristics with the console
    by T. Ng (Saturday 13 July, 2013)

    I used this console before. This EQ just sounded sonically close to the actual console. Being able to mix on this console feels so good ! For UAD to replicate the sonic character in plugin format, it's a no-brainer buy for sure. Make good music with this ! … Read More
