McDSP 6020 Ultimate EQ
The McDSP 6020 Ultimate EQ has ten EQ models inspired by the best equalizers of the last four decades, from classic to modern.
Why Not All EQs are Created Equal
We’ve all heard the countless arguments between engineers about this EQ being perfect for this or that.
An EQ is an EQ right? Boost a few frequencies here, cut a few frequencies there...
Oh, If only it were that simple.
Why is it that some EQs just sound more “musical” on certain things?
Some might add clarity and punch whereas others sound smooth and silky.
Some just have a sound that is all their own.
Of course, there are the people who argue that you can take any decent EQ and create all of the curve/phase characteristics of any other EQ.
Again, if it were only that simple.
First, you can’t compare EQ’s by simply matching dials and numbers.
Second, who really has the time to use an analyzer do all of this?
Not to mention after all that, you’ll still be missing what makes each EQ truly unique. That one sonic quality you just can’t put your finger on, The magic makes each vintage EQ so special and so musical.
You’re missing the EQ’s “X” Factor.
Because a vintage EQ that stands out adheres to this simple, but indispensable formula: EQ+X
Where X can be saturation, bandwidth limits, soft clipping and so on…
That’s the magic.
Now we all know that there are tons of emulated tried and true vintage EQs out there. You probably already have a favorite or two
But what if that X factor came from not just these vintage EQs you know and love
What if that X factor came from other classic hardware that also has magic sonic qualities
Like emulating the “X” factor of a legendary compressor and add THAT sonic imprint to an EQ?
Imagine all the new sound possibilities if someone actually did that.
Well, you’re in luck, because the engineers over at McDSP did exactly that and you won’t believe the results…

How Does The McDSP 6020 Ultimate EQ Work?
The 6020 Ultimate EQ plug-in is a window into the minds of the audio dsp nerds at McDSP. Years of obsessing over why certain analog units have become classics, and taking that knowledge to a digital software platform is what makes our day jobs very cool. The original equipment was, and still is, amazing. For folks who want those sounds in a few channels, there is ebay (or preferably a reputable vintage gear dealer). For folks looking for something a bit different, in a convenient 10-in-1 package, that can run on as many tracks as their computer can handle, there is the 6020 Ultimate EQ.
