Plugin Alliance releases elysia museq EQ plug-in

Plugin Alliance has announced the availability of the elysia museq equalizer effect plug-in, a software reincarnation of elysia’s award-winning flagship museq equalizer.

elysia museq

Since its original release in eye-catching rack-mounting hardware form back in 2009 elysia’s museq has more than lived up to its tagline: THE MUSICAL EQUALIZER. For this ear-opening EQ promptly walked away with coveted industry awards befitting its musical name and nature from those in the know on both sides of the pond. Why? Well, put simply, this awesome analog equalizer is a combination of premium sound-shaping capabilities with optimally-matched parameters and the highest- quality components — 100% discrete analog technology circuit design, permanent class-A mode signal processing using single transistors, and much more besides — enabling users to speedily achieve amazing-sounding musical results with the greatest of ease. Unsurprisingly, of course, audio and build quality such as this comes at a premium price. And rightly so.

Today, though, thanks to Plugin Alliance, elysia museq makes that most musical of EQs’ sought-after sound come alive in your favourite DAW at a $249.00 USD pocket-friendly price point set to take it to the musical masses! Moreover, the impressive features found on the original hardware are all present and accounted for here, including the outstanding resonant high-pass and lowpass filters (switchable to high and low shelf types) and the Warm mode sound shaper (to bring transparency, coloration, or both to the mix).

The elysia museq plug-in even brings some powerful extras to the musical table, such as MS Mode, an integrated M/S matrix for mid and side processing; Link, to link both channels for more convenient stereo operation; and dedicated output level controllers for adapting settings to the available headroom. Helpfully, the elysia museq license includes two plug-ins in one — a fully-fledged Master version with all the bells and whistles, plus a slightly simplified Mix version for easy, speedy setup.

So there you have it… the virtual version of a very flexible and musical-sounding EQ with an extremely powerful feature set, shining through on any kind of audio material anyone cares to throw at it!

Alternatively, it’s possible to purchase elysia museq as part of Plugin Alliance’s newly-introduced 100% elysia bundle — which also includes the elysia alpha compressor, elysia mpressor, and elysia niveau filter software reincarnations — for $489.00 USD, representing another attractive three-figure, 35% saving over purchasing the four plug-ins separately. Similarly, the newly-introduced 100% BX Bundle (featuring all 14 currently-available brainworx bx_ series plug-ins) and 100% SPL Bundle (featuring all 11 currently-available plug-ins from Plugin Alliance partner brand SPL) also represent remarkable value — all the more so since those same three tempting 0% finance schemes are also available at point of purchase. What’s more, as was the case with the original ALL Bundle, payment breaks are available when purchasing any of these Plugin Alliance bundles to further ease the financial burden — bundle plug-ins are automatically reactivated for another 30 days as soon as the next instalment is paid.

Plugin Alliance has got you covered, then, whatever way you choose to pay! So what are you waiting for? Go grab yourself a tasty slice of that sought-after sound courtesy of elysia museq and let your ears do the talking… after all, it’s THE MUSICAL EQUALIZER!

The elysia museq for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AS) is available to purchase from Plugin Alliance for $249 USD. elysia museq is also available as part of the ALL Bundle – V2 or 100% elysia bundle at Plugin Alliance.
