Vintage EQ plug-ins in Logic Pro X

Logic Pro X’s new Vintage EQ plug-ins can transform the sound of your mixes, with a unique retro vibe. Mark Cousins steps back in time…

Logic Pro X Tuto rial

Logic Pro’s Channel EQ certainly offers everything you could ever want from a contemporary equalizer in the digital world – from high-resolution spectral analysis, through to the precision of Middle-and-Side operation. However, having grown up listening to countless records produced using classical analogue equalizers, there’s a lot to be said for EQ that has a more vintage edge to it, even though it may lack the accuracy and precision of its digital counterpart. Following in the footsteps of plug-in developers like Waves and Universal Audio, Logic’s new Vintage EQ plug-in collection offers analogue modelled EQ as standard, with three different classical equalizers to explore.

If you’re used to Logic’s Channel EQ plug-in, the first experience of using the Vintage EQ can seem a little daunting, especially as you won’t be aware of quirks and operational features of the Vintage EQ models on offer. Although Apple can’t reveal the actual equalizers that have been modelled, it’s pretty obvious to visually identity them as a Neve 1073, API 560, Pultec EQP-1A and MEQ-5.
