 EQ is free for a few more days only. The Overloud EQ550 simulates the legendary API style Proportional-Q custom opamp equalizer, but crams in some features way beyond the original hardware.

So what is proportional EQ anyway? Well being that dBs Music Bristol has an API console, we're already fans of the sound of these EQs. You can hear for yourself above, proportional-Q design means that the bandwidth of the filters becomes narrow when the gain of the filter increases. For low gain settings the EQ delivers a much smoother sound, or crank it up and a much more aggressive tone is possible.
