There’s a reason Weiss Engineering’s EQ1 has been at the top of the heap since its release in 1996. The EQ1’s dazzling sonic qualities combined with its flexibility as either a Minimum Phase EQ, a Linear Phase EQ, or a Dynamic EQ have made it the must-have digital mastering equalizer. The Weiss EQ1 plug-in crystallizes that legacy—in software form.
Weiss Engineering’s go-to hardware and Softube’s workflow and ergonomic advancements combine here to stunning effect. A one-for-one, line-by-line code port of the original, the EQ1 plug-in is the latest and greatest addition to Softube’s successful partnership with Weiss Engineering. EQ1 joins DS1-MK3, MM-1, and more out-of-this-world Weiss + Softube products to prove that Swiss and Swedish engineering make a stellar pair.
The EQ1 plug-in is a true line-by-line port of the original SHARC assembler code. It’s an accurate replica that functions just like the original, but with added features that take it higher.
The Weiss EQ1 is the mammoth of equalizers, but we felt compelled to go further. Softube and Weiss gave the EQ1 plug-in a higher sample rate, improved ergonomics, and increased functionality.
The EQ1 plug-in lets you easily recall Presets (or Snapshots in the hardware counterpart) manually and they’ll sound and behave precisely as they do in the hardware.
EQ1: The thrilling sonic qualities of the Weiss EQ1, combined with its extraordinary flexibility, have made it an EQ with no equal. It has been the gold standard of digital mastering equalizers since its release in 1996. The Weiss EQ1 plug-in is a 1:1, line-by-line code port of the original hardware. With state-of-the-art additions, Weiss EQ1 solidifies the legacy of the legend in software form.
Windows 64-bit, versions 7, 8 or 10.
In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
