Plug-In Maag EQ4® EQ
Maag EQ4® EQ
AIR mode is a killer.
This is a very transparent EQ to use. The AIR mode is amazing. It adds that top air above 20k that is just missing sometimes. When overdriving the equalizer settings the EQ distorts nicely. Beautiful harmonics can be heard.
Excellent EQ for Additive moves
The air and sub bands are great. They have a very natural boost. Excellent for adding sparkle to vocals and elements that need to fill in the high frequency spectrum.
I purchased this for the top end and end up using every knob...
I love this EQ! One of the EQs I've ever used. You don't have to think. Just twist some knobs around the specific range you want to amplify and add some air; then BOOM, hear the magic.
Love it Love it Love!
Not much of a review from a technical stand point, but JUST GET IT! you wont be disappointed.
Secret weapon #2
I use in every song
Great EQ for anything with bright transients
I've been using this on breathy vocals and acoustic guitar recording. It does wonders to the higher ends, giving a high depth sparkle and shimmer that's kind of hard to explain with words. I often don't even need to tweak the knobs much, just running it through the plug-in with the knobs at neutral gives an audio improvement. Very flexible plug-in for your signal chain.

I´ve seen Dave Pensado talking about this one for those who knows who he is, and he loves it. So do I, It gives your track that sheen and open them up.
Tried it on an acoustic guitar, loved it. Tried it on vocals, loved it.
I really recommend this one, the air band is magical
What a magical EQ
Paired with a ribbon mic I've gotten some fantastic results. SM7 vocals? Kicks butts. Acoustic guitar? Beautiful.
Love using this on baritone male vocals to add an incredible presence with the AIR band
Pearl in EQ land
This is a niche EQ, maybe not directly suitable for all jobs, but initially easy. As you might know; great choice of bands and the air band is really something else. Voice/acoustic guitars/pianos. Wonderfully transparant, Love it!
This plug in always great to add color period. Thats pretty much what it can only do for all that DSP. The emulation is excellent.
Had the hardware version from when the company was called Nightpro. The plug in works jut like the original hardware with one exception, the Sub and Air bands need to the pushed between .5 and 1 db more to achieve same results as hardware. Not a big deal.
P.S. I still have a four channel Nightpro PreQa (with the Air Band) that I would never let go.
Good for color
This may not be an essential got to plug in, however its a a necessary tool for adding some gloss and color to your tracks
"Air" is there...
The Maag EQ4 plugin has a character of its own and lets you open up the top frequencies without harshness. In short, it gives you capabilities I haven't found in other EQ's, hardware or software.
This EQ has so much character A Swiss Army Knife
Love this EQ for the master bus
This is a very musical EQ. I tend to slap it on the master bus almost as a mastering, sculpting tool for the whole mix. Though I agree with the people here that say the Air Band is amazing, the 2.5 kHz shelf is awesome in my opinion. It adds so much clarity to my mixes without making them harsh.

This eq is fantastic, simple but effective. The air band is especially!!
A powerful addition to any vocal chain. Easy to use. The air-band is by far my preferred high shelf, and the low band boost adds weight tastefully.
My main vocal EQ now
Getting that vocal job done quick, easy and with lovely results!
