The inspired tone of the legendary British console EQ, taken to the next level.

Based on the vintage EMI TG12345 desk from Abbey Road Studios, the same one used to record Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and The Beatles' Abbey Road, Chandler Limited’s Curve Bender EQ isn’t just a recreation of the legendary hardware. It takes the sonics of the vintage EMI unit, and blows it up into powerful mastering EQ.

Developed by Softube for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces — the Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ plug-in is endorsed by Chandler Limited and is an exacting emulation of this ultra‑boutique EQ.

Using an advanced algorithm, Softube expertly emulates the Chandler Limited Curve Bender’s filter inductors — the key to its legendary sonic character. “Inductor-based EQs have a sound that is unachievable by any other method," says Chandler Limited founder, Wade Goeke. "They sound fat, with thick low end, slightly aggressive mids, and smooth highs.”

Expanding a Classic

Expanding a Classic

The original EMI TG12345 desk EQ offered nine fixed filter points. The Chandler Limited Curve Bender expanded these to a whopping 51, with more gain options, a slightly more flexible Q, Mid/Side capability, and added high and low‑pass filters. These enhancements have made the Chandler Limited Curve Bender EQ equally at home in high-end mixing or mastering studios.

Mastering and More

Mastering and More

Although it’s primarily designed for the mix bus, the Chandler Limited Curve Bender EQ plug-in can be used in myriad tone-shaping scenarios. Put it on your mix bus and add air, complexity, weight and mojo with juicy inductor-based flavor. The Chandler Limited Curve Bender plug-in’s ultra-flexible filters can even clean up infrasonic rumble, DC offset, and high-frequency noise. Or place it on your drum or vocal bus for tons of old-school spice and attitude that is unachievable any other way.

Exactly what I wanted...

I was specifically searching for an EQ with vibe and broad tone control that WASN'T a Pultec style, for use in mastering, with mid-side options. The Curve bender does exactly that. It works even better than I hoped it would. Fair warning, I've never used the analog unit, but I'll never have a mastering session where this isn't at least considered. Oh and those highs are so smooth!!!

Curvebender -the mastering EQ tool no. 1

Been looking for a killer mastering EQ for quite some time now, and voila: here it is.
Well, actually it's been here all the time but I was sticking to FF and others. But the Curvebender does the job subtle and very musically. The stereospread and transparency is at it's perfection . The new tool in my space shuttle......

Perfect for Mastering

I love this plugin so much for mastering. Especially with the MS mode. It gives such a smooth sound with all of the EQ controls. Give it a little bit of a boost in the top end, and all of a sudden your mixes feel so much wider. So awesome.

Essential Eq for Mastering

There is a reason for this to be one of the most loveed Eq for Mastering , but i can tell that this can be used a lot on other things , its just so musical and has the right frequencies...

Just ok for me

This Chandler Limited curve bender isn't like the Manley EQ that I think sounds great on the two bus, but this thing definitely has it's own sound. The top end is a bit more tinny but it has some vintage tones going and it's ...meh. I reach for the Manley and others first now.

WOWSERS

Love this EQ! I use to add a little, now I add a lot but I'm still Svenny...Svenny from the block. It is so good, you don't have to add to much but if you do it still sounds INSANE!

Magical

I am surprised that turning any knob any way still sounds good, even cutting the bass or mid-range. It feels magical.
