The Bettermaker EQ232D is a faithful plugin recreation of one of the most respected analog mastering EQs.

The original hardware Bettermaker EQ232P MKII — upon which the Bettermaker EQ232D plugin is based — is renowned for delivering the lush, supple bottom and clear, smooth top end of the legendary Pultec EQs, but with a clean and modern twist that’s perfect for contemporary styles of hip-hop, EDM, pop, or even metalcore!

Musically speaking, this meticulously modeled plugin version of Bettermaker’s instant classic mastering-grade EQ is no different. Faithfully following in the footsteps of the analog original, it offers the incredible low- and high-end shaping capabilities of the best passive EQ designs ever devised, along with the precision, detail, and features of a high-end 21st- century design.

Duly beating at the heart of the Bettermaker EQ232P MKII EQ is its P EQ section — faithfully recreated in the Bettermaker EQ232D plugin — that recreates the classic curves and creative workflow of the iconic Pultec EQs, but with tremendous clean headroom, and without the extra grit or distortion of a vintage tube piece.

With the original Bettermaker team at its developmental helm helping to ensure its 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 legendary Pultec EQ filters, including separate BOOST and ATTEN (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, of course, 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 to an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $299.00 USD — More Info HERE
