Maag EQ4® EQ
Two words: AIR BAND
This might be the most immediately useful plug I've gotten my hands on from UAD.
It is so easy to dial in useful and musical sound with this little blue wonder, which has become my go-to. Have tried using it just about everywhere and it almost always makes things sound better, quickly and with little fuss.
But the real secret weapon here is the Air Band. Wow. Just the right kind of air / sparkle / sheen to open things up beautifully without getting honky or harsh. Amazing.
It's a steal right now. So glad I picked it up.
Most satisfied UAD purchase yet...The crew at Brainwork is TOP NOTCH
I love this one in my vocal...!!!
Subtle but musical
This is a nice EQ, it is very musical. It is fairly subtle though in the Air band range though, at least that is what I have found. Compared to other "Air" type EQ's, like the Clariphonic and Clariphonic MKII DSP, this doesn't add quite the same audible clarity boost at the top end.
The only other criticism I have is that it is a bit tricky to level match this. You have to fiddle with the output level a lot to ensure that the volume is the same before and after using Maag EQ 4.
But if you want a musical EQ, this is a nice EQ to have in your arsenal. A level matching option would be nice in a future release.

Air band is out of this world
This one of my favorite Eqs, the air band adds that little extra something that other eq's just don't have. I use it on every mix.
The air up there
Maag doesn't call it an "air" band for nothing. If you want that wispy high end, the vocal track that breathes, this is the EQ. The other fixed bands can be really helpful too. The 160hz band is great for adding punch to kicks and snares. Or you can use the 650hz to smooth out your mids on a piano. I also love using this EQ on bass, specifically after a compressor. You can restore some of the lows and sub with the 160hz, 40hz and "sub" bands should you lose any after the compressor. Great work UA!
The best vocal finalizer and polisher!
There is no other eq you can boost the hi frequencies with it so much that it sounds still great and lovely after.
Very smooth and expensive sounding plugin. It really earns the 5 stars! Since from that day on I used the Maag the first time I never used and would use the hi frequency band of other eq's on vocals. If you need highs on your vocals then use the Maag!
It's so smooth and beautiful sounding.
Great on vocals
Very smooth sounding EQ - using it particularly for my vocals, but does a great job on synths as well!
This eq is very intuitive. The air band is really a joy to work with. Opens up the high end on anything you put it on, without sounding harsh or cringe worthy. I was pleasantly surprised that the bottom end was tight and punchy when I needed it on drums. It's one of 3 or 4 eq's I immediately reach for in the plugin realm. Just buy it, you won't regret a moment of it.
Wonderfull sound, with those "high - fi " highs and rumble low end, very well chosen frequencies made this eq unique and very easy to use from mixing to mastering, congratulations!
Love this little EQ. It tends to find its way on acoustic guitars, synth pads and other instruments that need that extra push up top. Also really cool on bass. But if you have a full lead vocal, just add some air and body with this bad boy and you're golden. Love it!
Simple and shiny !
Lovely eq, simple to use so you can just get on with the job. The air band is great on vocals, makes them shine with out being too sibilant, very useful. I recommend.
Maag EQ4® EQ Plug-In
This EQ is quite a surprise. Low overhead on resources and adds a big dose of air or openness to my mixes, It can be used on tracks or on the Master buss. I didn't think it would be much, but my acoustics love this thing. A great EQ. UAD you hit the mark again!!
Took some time for me to grasp how to use this plugin but when I got the just it simply rocked. Adds a lush sheen to my vocals.
I can`t tell if the eq is really the most musical one or not, i use it for the AIR band. It works. I also don´t get why people need a difference to the Plugin Alliance version and hope the cooperation goes on. The prices are nearly the same and obviously synced, the only difference is regarding running natively or dsp-powerd, where both has each advantages/disadvantages. I hope some day, we have one big Plugin Store, where you buy a plugin and get it in both versions, DSP powered and Native. Also you don`t have to download multiple bundles when setting up a new computer. This is my dream ... and a DSP powered H3000 Factory ;)
Clean - air-band detail comes out nicely in the mix.
I like that you can use it on a lot of tracks before your DSP starts to fail.
I Like this EQ..
This one is the thing to go when you need some additional air added to a sound without any noticeable EQ feel.
the air band is brilliant and the whole eq feels clean and a tiny bit "warm" sounding.
