Free API550 style EQ from Overloud

Haven't tried it yet - but I haven't got any API 550 emulations, so this may be interesting.

Just had a quick play, it's obvious it's not a straight emulation of the 550 (four bands not three!) the frequency knobs all sweep (no detents) which I like, and there a solo switch for hearing the band you're affecting - excellent - not that I have any experience with a real 550, but this EQ sounds nice at first hearing, is great for boosting or notching guitars (which is what I tried it on) and when pushed, it breaks up nicely, worked well on a send to add parallel distortion and top end sparkle (yes there's a shelf switch too - top and bottom.) Well worth every penny of - er, nothing! :lol:

Share what? :?

You needed to make a request for a serial number within the proper time frame.

You snooze, you lose. You had your chance and you blew it, etc. ...

BTW, it's pretty sweet ... especially for the price!

:mrgreen:

What are you talking about? it was a free eq. I didnt know how it worked. usually with free stuff you can back date it. I have done that plenty with magazines.

Never once mentioned pirating or anything of the sort.

I am sure the waves version will be just fine. Figured if I could grab a free one with extra bands that might be cool. Oh well

No worries, man. I doubt if it will make or break your mix. Always nice to have options, though. I need more EQs like I need more holes in my head ... :) .

Understood, and no offense meant. (It's a $140 plugin.)
