Harrison® 32C Channel EQ
Harrison® 32C / 32C SE Channel EQ
Still incredible, old secret weapon
I finally bought this beast !
I was waiting for a sale on this one for ages, and now it’s at home.
The first experiments I’ve made with it were quite spectacular, and at the end it just became my go to vintage EQ in the box, in few days. Yep it’s expensive, but damn UA did so much of a great job with this one. It’s becoming an old lost boy for the big public but it is still a true weapon for many engineers and producers, and you understand why when you try it. It’s hard to explain but it is extremely effective, has a fast workflow and always sounds good. Yes you need to know how to EQ, but this thing makes that work a game / joy. I like to run several EQs in series with this one first in the chain. Try it !!!
Well done UA, and thanks again.
Smooth and easy.
Really happy whit it !
Best basic universal channel strip EQ from UAD
Very good universal quality for basic track equalizing and filtering with an color (more color than Precise Channel Strip), little more color have API 550,560 and more NEVE... Best for snare...linear sound, tight bass, clean highs, musical sounding
Awesome general eq
Love this for general eq duties- never sounds harsh when boosting, and works great for removing mud from tracks with too much in the low-mids
When comes to mixing pop, that’s my go to eq. Realy clean, punchy, with some vibe.
very sweet eq
Great top end , and love the lo and hi pass filters.
Easy, bright EQ
Especially if you are suspect your mix is "OK, but... just missing something," this EQ will get you over the finish line, while not changing/overhauling the sound you're looking for.
That missing texture
This EQ gave me that missing texture I've been looking for on so many things. For me it's less about the frequency control and more about the grain and texture that it adds to the signal path.
Will my mixes sound like Bruce Swedien's mixes?
My mixes will NEVER, EVER sound like those of the the great Bruce Swedien, but at least I have a plugin tool that will help me develop my mixing footprint! Thanks Universal Audio for a great plugin at a great price!
This EQ is one of the most underrated EQ's UA has. It may not be in UA's top seller list or the most talked about but it's simply one of the best sounding EQ's available. Very musical sounding. I also own the Pultec and Neve EQ plugins as well and I find myself going to this more. Great Plugin!
This is just an amazing eq. Love it.
This EQ has something special
Forget the specifications, forget the theory. Forget for a moment just how smart we have all become. Close you eyes and listen to this EQ do it's work. Maybe just maybe there really is some magic left in the world :)
Ok, so this is my eq now, I'm chucking the rest. It's so analog sounding, takes away all harshness, and the highs are reiculously sweet. Just inserting it to a track changes everything, bypass bad, on, great!
incredible sweet EQ
incredible sweet EQ that i use many times on every mix. in my ears there are not many Eq's that sound as sweet as the Harrison 32C. Boost the highs just a little bit and it gives you the air you are looking for or it can thicken up signal to make it big and impressive. Really in love with it!
Hidden Gem, small footprint.
Very easy to use. Really good presets, and plenty of them. Works great on carving out space. Used it to cut a small bell on Bass Guitar at 62hz, it let the kick come through really good, and no harm to the Bass track.
A different taste to the now common Neves.
A gentle one, set +4 dB an you think nothing happened, but you got a better sound.
4 Bands that overlaps, neat.
And those fine highs, lovely.
DSP is acceptable low.
Beside the 1081 my second favorite for mix (and also for master)
Flip the phase for extra sweetness
I spent the past two nights demoing analog EQs on the stereo bus, and the Harrison 32C won out big time! To me, it beat out the Manley Massive Passive and Neve EQs for color, low-end tightness and 3D depth. For some reason, flipping the phase brought everything a little more forward, tightened the low end and added sparkle to the top. I'd say the vintage Neves and API Vision EQs are quicker to dial-in, but the Harrison EQ gives you more tone and clarity. It's also cheaper than the others!
Try it & but it
I’ll tell you how to demo this plugin. Are you ready?
Put it on the source that already sounds good and doesn’t necessarily need eqing (maybe because you already did eq it), start boosting 3k with this thing, smile and add it to cart.
I dont know how but uad managed to create an eq that doesnt really sound like eq. It just sounds like you’re changing the sound at the source. And thats pretty damn impressive. I need to spend more time with this thing (already bought it) but mid range and the area around 3k (which a lot of times ends up being harsh) definitely sounds incredible on this thing
My favorite guitar eq
This gives the perfect finish on guitar. Surgically removed harsh high end or digital noise, without dulling your tone. It’s a must for me on every guitar track or bus. Warm and useable highs, tight lows and natural wide mids. The best.
