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.

Give your tracks vintage warmth and character

Boost frequencies in your masters with powerful, character-filled EQ curves — without ever sounding harsh

Harness plug-in-only features Mid/Side and Channel Linking to tweak width and punch

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.

Excellent vocal carve after tracking, excellent mix bus. Heck, just excellent, never harsh.

I use it on vocals, mix bus, bass, and piano. Subtle was you want it, but even drastic settings sound smooth.

Not like the real thing

It's I would say a good EQ for channel EQing. But its sound is far from the original hardware. The sound completely misses the typical density and transparency. It does the EQing but not the refining of the image.

So useable...

I love this EQ. It feels like it thins out selected frequencies, instead of removing them. So it has a very natural and organic sound. Pretty invaluable tool on any track or bus.

One of the reason I went UAD

This plugin is one of the reasons I opted for the UAD system and I still can't believe how good it is. I certainly use it in my mastering chain, but I have started using it on tons of things now. The character it adds is unsurpassable.

master eq...

It brings effective benefits in the mastering process. It is not obvious, but it can make many bands thinly.

More than I had hoped for

I’ve never used the hardware but damn, the software adds a presence that is just hard to describe. It’s become my go to EQ on individual tracks, not just the mix buss.

A Must have for your tool box!

This beast has saved my life many times in both sound design projects and pop tracks that are sometimes a pain to deal with that 4K Harshness! and open up the top end! amazing. Not just a mastering tool, a must-have for sure.

The curve Bender EQ is hype Worthy

I have used this on a track and it brought out the highs with no harshness,which many times is an issue of concern. Dropping this plug on all my projects does make a subtle but essential difference..Try Out the Demo For yourselves...

Great not only for mastering!

It's very difficult to overdo and adds a nice color. Also the M/S mode is amazing!

Night and day on the mixbus

Amazingly subtle, really hard to overdo. Then you bypass to AB and realise it marks everything shine!

My Favorite Mastering EQ

Digging this plugin, it works well on adding that extra vibe to my low end, mids and highs!! Thanks for the voucher it really helped in acquiring this great tool!!! I have also used it on vocals, soon will also try it on drums! I rarely adjust over 1.5 or 2db's its the subtle vibe I love about it!!!
