IK Multimedia T-RackS EQ 81
IK Multimedia says:
It delivers that legendary British warmth and tone with a few twists. It is based on a classic piece of hardware whose character was instrumental in shaping the sound of many hit songs, the EQ 81 can be considered the evolution of its older brother, the EQ 73. Furthermore, there are a few tweaks that make the EQ 81 capable of delivering a voice of its own.
The key here is in the versatility of the EQ section, sporting four independent bands (high/low shelving, plus two midrange peaking filters) rounded out by high and low pass filters, this module is particularly useful when a more precise intervention on a track is needed, still maintaining tone and organic, analog warmth in the signal path.
There is virtually no audio source EQ 81 isn’t capable of enhancing — midrange critical sources like vocals, acoustic or electric guitars, will benefit from the extended EQ capabilities, where the key frequencies are precisely tailored to always deliver musical results.
