Kuassa has announced the release of native formats of its EVE-MP5, a reproduction of two of the most sought-after classic hardware equalizers, the Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the EQP-1A Program Equalizer.

Kuassa EVE-MP5

We drew inspiration from them and combined both EQs into a compact 3U device with a color coded, straightforward interface intended for fast workflows and maximum usability.

Known for their signature frequency curves, the EVE-MP5 will bring massive lows, smooth mids and shiny highs to any tracks you put them into. Utilize the famous low-end trick of boosting and attenuating the low frequencies simultaneously for a rock solid bottom-end. The MP5 is also loaded with a power amp saturation unit in the signal path. Turn it on for a hotter signal and dial the input to give a mild edge to your tracks, or push more for an overdriven sound. The “Auto” switch in the input section is useful for maintaining constant gain levels while cranking the saturation via the input knob.

EVE-MP5 features

  • Combination of the two Pultec EQs into a single, compact plug-in.
  • Color coded knobs and straightforward interface for fast workflows.
  • Unique Saturation unit on the input path with automatic level compensation.
  • Simultaneously boost and attenuate on the same low frequency.
