Kazrog has announced the release of an emulation of the rare, vintage analog Langevin EQ 252A Graphic Equalizer.

A collaboration with Powers Music Group, the True 252 plugin is a 7-band graphic EQ with analog style curve interaction and subtle saturation.

In building this emulation, copious measurements were made of the original hardware in the Powers collection, and every effort has been made to accurately represent it in the digital domain – including the extremely musical EQ curves that inspired the original Motown-style EQ circuit, and gentle natural saturation of the original unit.

This equalizer is incredibly intuitive, and brings life to masters, buses, and individual tracks in a way that feels effortless and immediate.

True 252 features

  • 7 band graphic equalizer.
  • Gain compensation – maintains the same apparent loudness irrespective of the EQ slider settings.
  • Continuous gain control – not stepped as with competing plugin emulations of similar EQs.
  • “Cramping-free” equalization.
  • Preset manager with A/B compare.
  • Compensated internal bypass.
  • Separate oversampling settings for realtime and offline processing, adjustable on the fly.
  • Two UI themes – black and gray – based on the faceplates of the original 252-A and its cosmetic variation, the 270.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac, True 252 is on sale at the introductory price of $29.99 USD until November 4th, 2022 (regular $39.99 USD). A free demo version is also available.
