Harrison® 32C Channel EQ
Harrison® 32C / 32C SE Channel EQ
Every time I do an EQ shootout on a critical track the Harrison 32C wins.
My go-to EQ plugin
The proportional Q on the Harrison makes this plugin really intuitive to use and with its separate gain and frequency controls, I can dial in an effective curve more easily than the concentric Neve knobs. Add the filters and you've got the perfect EQ.
Whats Amazing is that you can boost like %¤#" without destroying the naturalness of the sound. So it sounds quite different, but better - more defined. In a muddy mix this is the tool to give the sources the space they need, and to make a lot of them sound nicer. But ok, I shouldn´t use it on sparkly instruments like a ride cymbal, and not on bass either. It has it´s strength in between.

Harrison EQ with MJ Presets
I love this EQ. Awesome on acoustic guitar and vocals. Very good and usable presets as well. If you want a clean and clear sound get this EQ. Worth the money!
Excellent all the way around!
This is such a wonderful EQ. UAudio nailed it! These have always been one of my favorites for beefing up a drum or vocal track in a mix. Very musical yet still precise enough to be a desert island EQ.
No wonder Bruce loves the Harrson!
As everyone has said before, smooth & musical. The high end simply sounds expensive! (Sorry, that's the way I describe gear.) If API is "crunchy", the Harrison is "glassy". It let's you add lots of top end without it sounding over hyped. Great choice. Get it!
I've never used a Harrison EQ
but I'm well aware of some folks who do, and the quality of their work, so eventually I had to give it a spin...
And now I think I know why it is so popular... it is very difficult to make a track sound bad (not impossible though - too bad!).
It is a very musical equalizer, very easy to use. And it almost always has this vibe that sounds very different, and at the same time really cool. Like an MCI JH series EQ, but more refined? Or at least easier to dial in.
I especially like it on acoustic guitars recorded with ribbon microphones... I can't say that it sounds like the hardware, but I can say that it sounds great, and I really wish I had purchased it back when it was released - I had no idea what I was missing!
like having a console again
I love putting this on pretty much every channel because it's so fast to get a good sound. it feels like an analog board, and you come to know it's "action" in a similar way. I kind of like that the frequencies aren't exact, you just sweep around til it sounds good. Perhaps the most generally-useful UAD plugin.

This Plug In has Changed The way I Approach Eq'ing I Love it
Very musical EQ
It is a very musical eq with a very wide q that allows modeling the general character of a sound without degrading. Fully compatible with other surgical eq that would enable arrangements. It is similar to a Pultec but with many more elements to modify. The cut bass and treble defines the overall sound much better. but beware, not allow fix resonances or other specific problems.
Just Like I Remembered!
I've used the Harrison board many times through the years and, since I do most of my productions in my home studio now, I have missed it - until now. This sounds and reacts like I have remembered the real thing sounding and reacting. The EQ bands give me all the control I need. Thanks to those who designed this gem!
Great for Electric Guitars
This EQ is fantastic to give my old stratocaster the perfect analog vibe. I use it every time I grab an electric guitar to bring some soulful character to the mix. I highly recommend this plugin!
This plug in is a older one in the UAD range but probably one of the best. You can't do anything wrong with this EQ.
Its sounds so warm and it can give body to your sound without negative side effects.
I can only love this EQ.
Good job Universal Audio !
Tried the demo and it's one of the best EQs , HOPE CAN GET ANOTHER COUPON TO BUY IT BEFORE THE SALE ENDS
awesome sound :)
I really like this EQ. awesome sound :)
This has been awesome on drums and guitars. You can push it hard and maintain great sound!
Harrison® 32C / 32C SE Channel EQ Plug-In
I really like this EQ. IT can really add the missing piece on drum tracks and I also found it useful for Acoustic guitar.
THE "GO TO" EQ FOR THE TOP END
I have plenty of plug ins, and some of them are just essential to do certain jobs. Others are useless and when you demo them you realize in a bunch of hours that you will never ever purchase them. The Harrison 32C was installed on my UAD as a demo and after few minutes i found that was doing something on the top end of what i was equalizing: It was different from any other EQs, it was just like a good hardware eq. Was boosting and making things brighter yes, but the harshness was gone. I just couldn't find anything else like it in my virtual rack. I had to buy it. A MUST HAVE.
I like to use this wonderful EQ on vocals, guitar and some synth parties. You have to try it on vocals, maybe this is what you need. Thank UAD !!!
I consider this the best sounding EQ for UAD. I tried them all. I own real analog API EQs, vintage Neve 1073s and Tridents. Since I've had a chance to mix on a real Harrisson 32-Series console last year, I fell in love with that desk. I'm currently on the market for buying two real vintage Harrisson channelstrips. But this plugin makes waiting much easier... A killer on bassdrum and overheads!!!
