Multiband Precision with a Rich, Vintage Vibe

Vintage analog EQs were often designed to shape tone, compared to today’s “surgical” EQs that are more about fixing problems. The V-EQ4, modeled after the Neve 1081, embodies the transition between these two philosophies—vintage sound, yet evolving to greater control and precision.

Two 10-position midrange controls (with Hi-Q buttons), variable high and low-frequency shelving, and high and lowpass filters provide the versatility needed to both shape and fix sounds.

  • Low- and high-Q options use sensible, musical values
  • Models the acclaimed Neve 1081 mic preamp/EQ
  • Transformer modeling gives a warm, upfront midrange
  • Rich lows and sparkling highs enhance guitars and keyboards
  • Class AB design, with analog emulation, adds sparkle
  • Covers the wide range of frequencies needed for drums
  • Lift instruments out of a mix, or push them further back
  • Even with EQ zeroed, analog modeling is still available

Fix Your Mix—Without Losing Vintage Character

  • Rich 70s Sound, Modern Functionality

    You no longer need to choose between vintage sound or precision: the V-EQ4 is flexible enough to handle today’s mixes, but with the warmth, sparkle, and rich sound that makes mixes from the 70s hold up even today.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Tried and True Tweaking

    The 20 midrange frequencies with Hi-Q option, high and low shelving with 5 corner frequencies (and optional bell response), and 5 highpass and 5 lowpass filters were deliberately chosen for maximum musicality.

  • Classic Instrument Character

    One of the hallmarks of the 70s sound was hearing each instrument clearly in the mix. The V-EQ4’s detailed EQ lets each instrument claim its own part of the frequency spectrum, to deliver dazzling definition.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Turn Virtual Consoles into Analog Ones

    Enable the Analog button to retain the modeled analog sound, even with EQ bypassed. To mix through a console with analog character, add a V-EQ4 to each channel, and enjoy the sound of analog mixing.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
