Trident® A-Range Classic Console EQ
The legendary British console EQ that crafted the “Golden Age” of rock records.
Licensed and endorsed by Trident Audio Developments, the Trident® A-Range Classic Console EQ plug-in for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces expertly emulates the iconic EQ used on David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, Lou Reed’s Transformer, and Queen’s Sheer Heart Attack, among hundreds of others.
The original Trident A-Range desk holds near-mythic status, and is arguably the best loved of the classic Trident console designs. Heralded for its unique band interactions and distinct cut-filter combinations, the Trident A-Range EQ has made an indelible impact on the sound of rock.
now you can:
Track and mix with the legendary 4-band active EQ modeled from one of only 13 original Trident A-Range desks
Easily inject life and color to kick drums, bass, and vocals without adding harshness
Artfully sculpt instruments with unique band interactions and musical cut-filter combinations
Add snarling midrange and airy high end to electric guitars

Más que una EQ
Esto es más que una EQ. Su capacidad de trabajar en los medios tonos es impresionante, así como todas las combinaciones de filtros de las que dispone. Te permite usar la EQ para pulir un sonido o para cambiarle el carácter por completo. Una batería moderna la he llegado a hacer sonar como una de los 70 estilo UK poniendo sólo una instancia en el bus de la batería. Una pasada.

ECUALIZADOR CLÁSICO Y ÚNICO!!!
Trident A-Range EQ ha tenido un impacto indeleble en el sonido del rock.
legendario ecualizador activo de 4 bandas
Tiene un carácter único y en las guitarras va genial. Lo sustituí por el Pultec en las guitarras y no me decepcionó.
SONIDOS DE ENSUEÑO!!!
I love it !
A luxury item rather than a necessity
This isn’t right for everything, but when it’s right, it’s really right. The coloration is quite dark, but VERY apparent, so in that respect it can sometimes be too aggressive. It’s one of the plug ins that by simply putting it on changes the character of the sound immediately.
I’d say it’s quite similar to the Neve 1081 plug-in, it makes the sound more harmonically rich but causes the top end to become more narrow - again, this can be good or bad depending on your needs. All the boosts sound fantastic though, and using the different LP options in conjunction with one another can lead to some really unique and pleasing curves.
It really comes into its own on electric guitars. Gives it a really vintage 70s sound. If you’re looking for transparency though, this is the opposite of what you want.

This EQ is not kidding around. Very powerful and distinctive. No regrets.
Rush, Supertramp & Queen Era
It`s already in my wish list - tried it and found it so useful. Great low and high pass filters as well.
What a cool set of presets and i really like the fact of being it assosiated with the bands from the golden era of soulful, emotional - Real Music!
... as in don't bother trying to out-do this plugin. It simply rocks! Subtle adjustments make astounding differences. Love, love love it!
Great for guitars!
If I could only have one EQ, this would NOT be the one. BUT....it has a different vibe and color all it's own, and it's a must for me on guitar tracks. The filters are subtle, but play with them enough and you'll find a setting you like. I really like the fact it has sliders (if only because knobs don't always behave as I'd like on my Mac). Very analog-sounding...sweet and natural. Probably not an EQ you'd ever master with (although I did it once on an old song well-suited for it). Overall, nice! Demo it and see for yourself.
A Simulation Tool！
Shaping guitar tone
Perfect for shaping guitar tone. Combined with the Marshall Bluesbreaker results in one of the best amp sims ever!
Not one of their better emulations. I bought it on faith because I love the hardware, but this doesn't quite do the same thing so I don't use it anymore. Sorry, UA, I hope it gets a refresh soon.
midrange done perfectly
you need this if you want that classic sound instantly.
I bought this bc the reviews were great for electric guitars. This plugin does just what it says, brings out a little more high end clarity on electric guitars and makes them stick out in the mix better. Great plugin, highly recommended for sessions with lots of tracks and multiple guitars.
nice eq curves!
simple interface, smooth and silky tones, easy to coloring your tracks!
Easy to use and great sounding
Adds a different color than other EQs, it's very nice and is powerful. Great saturation add on and clean distinctive bands.
