Description: Accurate emulation of the Neumann w495 3-band equalizer.
Neumann w495 equalizers were used to master 90% of vinyl records released from the 1970s to the 1990s. But even after this golden age, many mastering engineers still love this EQ. Why? Because the w495 has wide EQ curves that can be pushed to ridiculous levels while still being musical. The W495 is an easy-to-use tone shaping tool for individual tracks. But it can also enhance the presence and depth of the overall mix.
But we’ve gone beyond the Pulsar W495 by adding all the key features you’d expect from a modern EQ plugin, including visual curve editing to speed up your workflow. The Pulsar w495 is an easy-to-use, powerful tone shaping tool, from channel EQ to mastering EQ, faithfully emulating the iconic 3-band EQ.
