Plugin Alliance Bettermaker EQ232D
Posted on: Wednesday 16th of September 2020
The Bettermaker software-controlled hardware units have been well-received at Resolution studios, and in 2018 the Bettermaker Mastering EQ (reviewed Resolution V18.1) was voted winner in the EQ category by our readers. Now the Polish experts of USB-controlled analogue hardware have partnered with Plugin Alliance to bring us a plug-in-only recreation of their hardware.
With the original Bettermaker team at its developmental helm helping to ensure authenticity, notable features of the Bettermaker EQ232D plugin include five EQ filters on each channel, including two classic Pultec sections and two high-pass filters, plus four parametric filters with wide frequency ranges; passive P EQ section comprising shelving filters based on Pultec EQ filters, including separate Boost and Attenuation knobs; 24dB/Oct high-pass filter; two parametric filters per channel, covering frequencies from 15Hz to 15kHz; Stereo, Dual Mono, and M/S modes; and lots of presets to kickstart user workflow, including four exclusive mastering and mix buss presets made by Luca Pretolesi of Studio DMI — all accessible via an intuitive interface.
Bettermaker EQ232D is available for purchase (as an AAX AudioSuite-, AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting effect plugin for macOS 10.9 through 10.15 and Windows 7 through 10) at an introductory price of $229.99 USD until October 31, 2020 — rising thereafter to an MSRP of $299.00.
