Kush Audio has launched Hammer DSP, a plugin version of the Hammer EQ, the first in a series of plugins from an alliance between A-Designs and Kush.

Hammer is a hybrid solid-state equalizer with a fat tube output stage. It uses the same custom, proprietary 4x oversampling algorithm developed for Electra DSP and Clariphonic MkII.

The Hammer’s mythical top end sheen and tube-thickened low end quickly earned it a permanent place on mix busses around the world. Me, I’ve always been partial to its smooth, bite-free midrange—something that’s difficult to find in any EQ, let alone in a plugin.

Try a little bump at 50Hz, 800Hz, and 10k, and your mix will noticeably pop out of the speakers. That one’s called ‘Subtle Vintage Points”, one of over 60 custom UBK presets that are destined to bring a lot of magic to a lot of tracks in the near future.

Hammer DSP for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $149 USD. Requires iLok2.
