Default Analogue style EQ plug in

Any personal recommendations for an analogue style EQ for reaper? I just want a simple mixer style EQ with high, mid, & low knobs.

Acustica Audio has the best analog impulse based eq´s in the market.

You can check out TDR VOS Slick EQ. It is free.

My personal favourite however is DDMF 6144, both usability and sound.

Exactly, they're beyond compare. Download the free "Ochre" or one of the trial versions in order to see if your CPU is powerful enough.

Not keen on Acustica stuff, myself.

You're in luck though, because Fuse Audio Labs has just released a free 3 band EQ. No sign-up, no hoops to jump through.

Also, the TBA Channel strip is worth a try :

It's no longer offered.

They are not cheap, neither CPU friendly. SoundWise...no comparison to algorithm emulation

Some other free ones to check out:

- https://sonimus.com/products/soneq/
- https://lkjbdsp.wordpress.com/luftikus/
- https://deadducksoftware.blogspot.co...equaliser.html

Those are basically my three go-to equalizers for analog style coloring.

Warren Huart reviewed the bx_console SSL 4000 E and said it reacted and worked pretty much like his own console. So I'd say if you want an "analogue style" plugin, that's the one.

TDR Slick EQ is my pick, either the free version of GE version.


Also check out Mellowmuse EQ1A, it's free.

Hey, what exactly do you mean "analog style"...? I read about simple knobs for control, but what are you trying to accomplish with the Sound? EQs can be in the analog realm and still sound vastly different. You want a fat Pultec style eq, you want a sensitive maybe slightly gritty eq like the SSL? Or maybe an even more sensitive Maag eq? Are you looking to process lows, mids, or highs?

For example, most of my mixes I use a [Waves] Pultec type to work on lows. I use the [Slate Digital] AirEQ for the mids and the filters. I also like the [iZotope] Vintage EQ for mids. And again the AirEq for highs. But, there are lots of good recommendations listed here, any of them should be able to achieve your goal.

For a mixer type workflow you could set up ReaEQ with low & high shelves and a mid band, add track controls for frequency and gain, with Q for the mid band if you want, then save as an fx chain.

I use four EQ's depending on the song and how I feel:
Waves API 550A
TDR SlickEQ GE
Sonimus Burnley73
Soundtoys Sie-Q

All are analog style, have different flavors and cover me for a variety of uses. I LOVE the stepped EQ controls, for faster decision making so that I can make adjustments and keep moving. The saturation of some units is also beneficial.

I do recommend thinking about using ONE EQ if possible. This is a Bob Ohlsson trick: use one EQ to help create a gel across the mix. It's not magic, it's more about "stacking" faster decisions leading to more emotional mix responses.

When you find one you like, try adding the parameters you will be using on the mixer (must enable "show fx parameters" mixer option) and save it as an fx chain as well as the default chain for new tracks. You'll end up with a mixer that works more like a traditional console and won't have to open up the UI on each track to make adjustments.
