Surprisingly powerful filters, workhorse
This EQ is a staple for me due in particular to some very nice HP and LP filter choices. They do wonders on the low end. There are plenty of sculpting shapes to the parametric Q bands too and overall the Cambridge EQ sounds very nice.
To me, it loses one point for lack of ease of use when it comes to selecting between the LP and HP filters - I have to manually click through each one, instead of having a quick knob or using keyboard to scroll between them. Surprisingly annoying, at least for my workflow this is an issue, someone else may disagree.
Also, bands are restricted to certain areas of the frequency and this has caused me some frustration when I'm in my flow and cant extend a certain band below 400hz for sculpting a final touch
Cambridge EQ Plug-In
I use Cambridge a lot. It is suitable for everything. It just works very well.
I needed a linear eq and this is the best eq that i found..low DSP with a great sound response.
great plug in!!!
Only tried this a couple times so far, but find it great for finding and fixing problems. Has a good sound and the filters are useful.
On every channel
I use this plugin on every channel to cut low frequencies. Excellent!
Just purchased this EQ after a quick demo....I use Logic Pro x and Logic has really functional EQ's that I use to make surgical modifications...I thought at first that I wouldn't need the Cambridge EQ....I was wrong. After a few day in DEMO mode I realized where the Logic EQ fell short...The tone and warmth from the Cambridge EQ's made a huge difference in my tracks...I was blown away by how small subtle differences can make change your listening experience so much...If you've invested in UA and the UAD2 platform you really need this EQ...It's beautiful to listen to and quite nice to look at...
Cambridge EQ Plug in
Great sounding EQ with great controls Already have used it on several project. If you like a graphic style great analog sound this is it.

Me parece un eq con un color unico en agudos , a la vez muy suave y quirurgico al mismo tiempo . lo suelo utilizar como primera ecualizacion de "correccion" en algunas frecuencias criticas y luego suelo complementarlo con otro ecualizador (casi siempre termina siendo el pultec pro) para aportar el color final del track en cuestion. a destacar su bajo consumo de DSP que es casi de un 1% en mono y poco mas en stereo. muy contento con su compra.
My new go to!
This is an excellent sounding and precise EQ. And it isn't too DSP Hungry so...Even better.
Nice + useful
Pro: really small DSP consumtion , good to use , does no harm (if used right) , versatile and usefull
Con: analizer missing , maybe 6 band would be an enhancement , not really better than Logic own EQ
This is one of the oldest UAD Plugins and that can be seen. Still good and the huge ammouth of filtering types especially for lowpas and highpass filters is up to date. The only problem is, time do not stand still and so do competors. There is nothing special in it.
If you get it by an offer it´s ok, for 149.- it´s far to expensive nowadays.
Cambridge EQ vs oxford
Hola a todos. Tengo los dos. Sony oxford suena limpio y genial, pero Cambridge EQ es una maquina y el complemento perfecto para oxford. Empleo los dos y estoy muy contentos con ellos. Para siempre...
Simple et efficace
Beau design, simple d'utilisation et d'une efficacitée extrêmement précise. Utilise peu de CPU.
Could have saved the cash
Using so many plugins I actually liked the fabfilter better. I was forced to get this plugin considering my budget and a coupon expiring... Along the buss compressor which is highly over dramatic.
Can't beat it to make a crossover split
For removing nasty frequencies other EQs do the job just as well. However I have to say it's the best EQ around to split frequencies for different processing in my opinion. So clean and the different filter responses are fab.
An analyser would make it even better.
Hello Mr. Doc
Great EQ for surgical cuts and getting rid of mud on single tracks or busses.
But it can also bring the right type of boost, for example on drums.
I really love this one and it is the plug in I use the most in my mixes because of its overall quality.
Thanks UA for a 50€ voucher so I got it for "free".
Sounds clean, but NEEDS an updated GUI.
Ok, I have some minor vision problems that are exaggerated when working with computer screens. This plugin needs a visual overhaul for me to give 5 stars. I need to be able to expand (maximize) the plugin window and have a cleaner look to the EQ to really work faster. As an EQ though, I am happy with it. I must say that I don't hear a ton of difference between it and the minimum phase eq in Logic. The Cambridge has some nice LPF and HPF options that go beyond the Logic one. Look, for the price, I cannot complain, but please give a clean GUI update. Some of us serious users do need it and it is not only about aesthetics of the look of the plugin.
Accurate, transparent, versatile!
Needs a Frequency Analyser
Most similar plugins (ReaEQ, etc) have a real time frequency analyser. This one really should. It doesn't sound particularly great, but if it had the right features it might be useful. Another disappointment from UAD.
Really Nice: easy to use, sounds great!
I'm not very weathered in audio production as most people that use this plugin are (or any of UA's for that matter), but as a post guy, I can say that this plug makes it very easy to carve out the frequency of the VO. Super intuitive w/ great results. Just wish this plug would default to "no settings" but it doesn't, it's 2 clicks away.
All in all, happy for this guy.
