Massenburg DesignWorks® MDWEQ5 Parametric Equalizer
Massenburg® MDWEQ5 Parametric EQ
Mix With the Masters
This summer, I attended a mix with the masters seminar taught by Jacquire King. He spoke very highly of this plug in, which contributed to my choice to purchase it. Just placing this plug in on an insert adds an element of air and clarity to the source. Wish it had an output trim though. and I dont like that I have to use up one of my bands to do a high and low pass
Great super clean EQ
I use the Massenburg on everything and it is a great subtractive EQ. It's precision is un-matched by any other EQ and it's lack of 'tone' is a plus. I use a Pultec or Tubetec for adding warmth and clarity but I use the Massenburg to stay out of the way and just do a job and it does it very, very well. It's a great mastering EQ as well. I love it!
A very transparent mastering eq! This thing is amazing, it sounds wonderful on any source and isn't a DSP hog.
Love it! Mixing or mastering this EQ is the Cleanup and beautiful musical sound
Wow : Totally blows my mind
Incredible; On a whole other level than ANY eq I've ever heard except for OLD Massenburg hardware
Mastering eq from the Master
IMO (and others), George Massenburg ranks up there with Sir George Martin as an innovator, producer, engineer. This plug-in is just another example of the quality and musical function that is Mr Massenburg's trademark.
I love using this eq on mixing, mastering and it can do wonderful things with a piano track that may be a bit "honky", brittle, or muddy.
This eq is on another level, and is a MUST on all my projects. Worth every penny and MORE.
Minus 1 star.
Really dislike the clunky GUI so it gets a 4 instead of 5.
THE Parametric Equalizer
The Massenburg is one of the most musical equalizer I have ever used. The Alogorithm used is simply amazing, it is transparent and it can make any track sounds better with the right treatment. I appreciate also the low dsp power request, which makes this eq my go through in every channel strip.
Definitely, a must have!
Massenburg with UA!!! Totally awesome
Always have been a fan of the MDWEQ5, I actually have the Avid, and Sonnox versions, listened to UA's and really felt and heard a difference and so the rest is history. Thank you guys!!
best eq in the market today
Simply put, the Massenburg EQ project with UAUDIO was a superb hit! best EQ in the market! period!
Why this EQ sounds so invisible good?
this EQ is the Cleanup Machine! it does exactly what it should do, and nothing else! my new goto EQ next to all the other nice character EQ's from UA...thanks!
I own almost all UAD Eqs, but this is slowly but surely becoming my absolute go-to eq.
Thumbs up Mr. Massenburg!
Man this eq is a sleeper. It is perfect for subtractive eq'ing virtually anything and is as advertised, a colorless eq. What does that mean? When I first demo'd this plug, I was a little baffled. It didnt sparkle to me at first, but I soon realized it was because there was no saturation or distortion being added to the signal. Like many people say, it just makes it sound better, without altering the source at all. Definitely check out the demos with Massenburg himself, it will open your eyes to how this eq is meant to be used.
surgery eq!best for difficult applications for every instrument !
Best EQ Ever!
Off course it´s a matter of taste and personal preferences - mind you!
But i´ve been looking for an EQ, which is clean, without distortion nor extra flavouring for ages now.
And here it is!
I use it constantely on my master chain, and i did try a lot of other EQs before!
The MDW brings out a lush and supreme sound in every of my mixes.
It´s unbelievable how great this product is, and how easy it is to handle!
It´s my favourite EQ ever!
Excellent EQ, both surgical and musical
You can use this EQ in any situation, mixing or mastering, to correct imperfections or to give a touch of beautiful sound. Curves are both surgical and musical at the same time, and the DSP power request is very modest.
Clean and clear!
Just a great in the box eq!
The Go-to EQ
Clean and beautiful. Useful for cleaning up any track. Will be used a lot ... defenitely !!
a simply great eq,no more words
It's a magic quickfix but it's also a very transparent EQ that can be used on just anything!
