Harrison Consoles AVA Mastering EQ
Posted on: Tuesday 29th of May 2018
Harrison Consoles, known for making the Mixbus recording software, have introduced the AVA Mastering EQ. The EQ plug-in offers a proprietary filter shape designed for mastering applications. With this EQ, adjusting two adjacent bands results in a curve that’s flat across the band edges, rather than having humps and valleys. This lets the EQ retain balance between the mix’s elements and aims to enable users to make broad changes to the frequency spectrum without compromising musicality. It’s appearance is an evolution of the XT-ME, indeed the algorithms are taken from Harrison’s XTools plug-ins developed for the company’s digital consoles.
There are 31 bands, high and low pass filters with adjustable order, level trim, and bypass. AVA is available in VST, AU, and AAX formats for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. The introductory price is $49, down from $69.
