Plugin Alliance New AMEK Plugin Series
Plugin Alliance announces new plugin series under the iconic AMEK brand name with EQ 200. The first product readying for release under the new AMEK brand is the EQ 200, modeled after some of the most coveted hardware EQs ever designed. The plugin is inspired by Dirk personally owned GML 8200 and SONTEC EQs, enhanced by BX with Filters, TMT, THD, M/S, etc.
Drawing upon years of experience in analog modeling, Brainworx’s goal with the AMEK EQ 200 was to develop a plugin that captures the DNA to recreate the unique sound of the most legendary parametric equalizers of the 70s and 80s. This was an exciting era dominated by new, paradigm-shifting EQ designs from brands such as SONTEC and GML offering groundbreaking new features, including parametric control — an ability to adjust the center frequency and bandwidth for each band. But while this is a standard feature on EQs today, it was an absolute audio revolution back then.
The AMEK EQ 200 plugin is inspired by the sound of Brainworx founder Dirk Ulrich’s own GML 8200 EQ — one of his all-time favorite pieces of analog outboard. On the face of it, then, the AMEK EQ 200 is a seven-band EQ, featuring five wide, overlapping fully-parametric bands with 15 dB boost or cut for each band, additional high- and low-pass filters, and low and high shelving EQs.
Based on the parametric equalizer that started it all, the AMEK EQ 200 is a beautifully transparent plugin EQ with a scalable UI to adapt to the user’s screen size and workflow, with plentiful presets providing a useful starting point for finding their sound. Readying for release on May 19, 2020, it will be included in Plugin Alliance’s monthly MEGA Bundle subscription and annual MEGA Bundle subscription at no extra cost!
