Optimized equalizer plug-in for mastering: J1000 MQ57


J1000 has announced the release of its MQ57 parametric equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

The main difference from other, standard EQs is that MQ57 has all controls and functions optimized for mastering needs, i.e., it has relatively wide Q factors that focus on overall balance rather than narrow cuts and boosts, moderate gain ranges for fine-tuning and functions such as channel balance, spectrum tilting and pass filters.

J1000 MQ57J1000’s powerful, but easy to use MQ57 equalizer is designed for mastering.

MQ57 features

  • 7 parametric minimum-phase filters per channel, 5 of them are peak, 2 are shelf.
  • Functions and ranges optimized for subtle equalization tasks.
  • Stereo and dual-mono operating modes, either Mid/Side or Left/Right.
  • High-pass and low-pass, specialized balance and tilt controls.
  • 32-bit internal precision with zero latency and low CPU consumption.
  • No introduced harmonic or dynamic distortion.

The plug-in is available to download at no cost (Windows/VST).
