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.

So much to love

This is such a great sounding EQ. It also makes me appreciate the effort UAD go to in their visual UI. Whenever I put it on a take a minute to just look at it. I actually get a buzz from looking at what appears to be a real unit in front of me. And yes, as always, it sounds incredible.

The Analog Color & Warm of a legendary Mastering EQ

I was looking for an "analog-like" EQ that would add color and gentle saturation without altering the Mastering Work. I believe I finally found it! I've been using many Mastering tools over the years : Plugins like Manley Massive Passive and Variable Mu had me very satisfied with the results since I have the Hardware version and I still think they are pretty close. The thing with a Mastering Equalizer is that it seems they always have to be subtle... some say transparent (I don't like this word). Being used to those so said transparent EQ either in the Digital domain as in the Analog World, I was looking for something more INTENSE to really add color but not being agressive as many plugins do. The Chandler Curve Bender is a game changer ! According to my friend and partner in audio production, who is also an addicted Analog Gear collector and specially an anti-plugin guy : "THIS one doesn't sound like a plugin : it really sounds analog ! it adds color, details, depht... The mix sounds wider and the saturation when you turn up the output gain sounds really nice !" And he adds : "turn it up ! more !!!" LOL ... He is now convinced with the plugin Version haha !

Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ

Utilizzo questo Plug In in Mastering e avendolo paragonato all'originale Hardware non ho trovato nessuna differenza. Simula perfettamente tutti i parametri in maniera fedelissima.
In Mastering fa veramente la differenza paragonato ad altri sui simili. Eccellente!!!

Back to TG12345 and more

I was used to the original Abbey Road plugin TG12345 but since Wave is doing it, it became just nothing special. I find with this Chandler the sound of the original plus some options. Missing from the original is the ability to use the mid range eq as a shelve...please could you do it ? It was the only eq to provide that !!!

Great Finish

I put this on my master bus, and it just added a beautiful sound. Not too dramatic, but definitely made the final touch to mixing so much better. I first used it as a demo, but had to buy it after hearing. Great tool to have

Tg12345 in uad

I love the tg12345 and this is that plus so much more. It’s musical and a joy to use just very steep learning curve. Jump that hurdle and it’s magic.

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!!!

Refine your already perfect mastering

When everything looks perfect, a little tweaking with the Curve Bender makes the mastering even more perfect!
