With the Amek EQ 200, PLUGIN ALLIANCE and BRAINWORX have introduced the first in a series of planned Amek hardware emulations. It is a seven-band equalizer designed to recreate the sound of the well-known parametric equalizers of the 1970s and 1980s from companies such as Sontec and GML. It is based on the GML 8200 EQ found in the equipment of Brainworx founder Dirk Ulrich. Each channel has five fully parametric bands that provide up to 15 dB of boost / cut. Also on board are low and high pass filters with a cutoff steepness of up to 12 dB per octave. Five parametric bands offer an “Auto Listen” function, with which changes made can be heard individually.

The Amek EQ 200 plug-in is available in mono and stereo versions. The stereo version has some additional features such as M / S processing, correlation and balance metering, as well as a controller for changing the width of the stereo sound and a “mono maker” that sums the low frequency components in mono into a focused and crisp signal. As with other current plugins from Brainworx, the Amek EQ 200 is not devoid of the patented Modeling Tolerance Technology (TMT), which simulates tonal component-related deviations from channel to channel (more precisely, the user receives all the original noise and dynamic deviations original analog device).
The Amek EQ 200 plugin is available starting at $ 349.99 until June 30, after which it will retail for $ 399.
