Voxengo has announced the release of a free equalizer plugin for Windows and macOS.

With only 3 bands finely tuned to deliver good results in many cases, the TEQ-421 is extremely easy to use. Additionally, it features internal non-parametric harmonic coloration modules derived from HarmoniEQ that produce a smooth saturation and a “presence” effect.

The frequencies of the bands were carefully selected and are not adjustable. These frequencies target specific frequencies that affect sound’s perception the most. The best use-case for this plug-in is equalization of unprocessed acoustical recordings that usually lack in modern balance of low, mid, and high frequencies.

The plug-in is equally useful on individual tracks, groups, and master bus. It was designed by tuning to a set of various sound sources, including vocals, acoustic guitars, drums, basses, and full mixes.

TEQ-421 features

  • Easy-to-use design.
  • Smooth harmonic coloration.
  • 64-bit floating point processing.
  • Preset manager.
  • Undo/redo history.
  • A/B comparisons.
  • Contextual hint messages.
  • All sample rates support.
  • Zero processing latency.
  • Retina and HighDPI support.

TEQ-421 is free to download in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats.
