Overview

Precision EQ Plug-In

UA's Original Premium Performance EQ Utilizing the Best of Classic Hardware Designs

The Universal Audio Precision Equalizer is a stereo or dual mono four-band Equalizer and high-pass filter made primarily for use with program material. The Precision Equalizer is modeled on the behavior of real-world analog mastering filters, and uses the classic parametric controls arrangement. The Precision Equalizer utilizes the best from traditional hardware designs while incorporating features convenient to software digital mastering. To preserve the greatest sonic detail and ensure a minimum of artifacts in the upper frequency range, the Precision Equalizer is up-sampled to 192kHz.

Both channels of the easy to use Precision Equalizer feature four bands of filtering grouped in two overlapping pairs: Two for low frequencies, two for high frequencies. A +/- 8 dB shelving or peak/notch filter is available for each band with five peak/notch responses per band. Each band can be enabled/disabled for auditioning and DSP savings. The Precision Equalizer features .5 dB stepped gain controls and stepped frequency controls traditionally found on hardware mastering EQs for repeatability. The high-pass filter is a far-reaching 18 dB per octave.

The Precision Equalizer also features flexibility in auditioning two separate A and B EQ configurations with the Stereo cycle button, while the Dual button allows the Precision Equalizer to function in dual mono, when disparate channel adjustments are necessary. In stereo mode, the left and right controls are linked – moving a knob on either channel will cause the corresponding channel to move. Stereo EQ configurations can be conveniently transferred from A to B, or B to A using parameter Copy buttons.

    Good EQ. Tried the demo version. Strangely enough, in most cases I went for the Pultec and/or the Cambridge during the mastering process. So I decided to do without it for the time being. But I will remain open to change my view. I think this question is really dependent on the material of your d … Read More
