Class-A Discrete Preamp and Equalizer - Classic British Tone & Warmth

Looking to impart that classic tone and warmth on your tracks?  Look no further than the T-RackS EQ 73 module.

The T-RackS “EQ 73” module is based on one of the most renowned, heavily used, and sought after pieces of hardware in music recording history. Originally part of a large-format British mixing console, this unit was first introduced as a standalone rackmount module in 1970, and quickly became a studio staple. It was favored by recording engineers the world over for its thick class-A sound, rich in harmonics and fullness. On top of its preamp section, it sported a 3-band EQ that was also a key factor in shaping the richness and sound of countless tracks.

The EQ 73 is a “true to the original” reproduction of the classic “73” EQ in all of its nuances, thanks to IK Multimedia’s extensive development of innovative modeling technologies. Not only have all of the gain stages, circuit designs, and EQ curves and shapes been modeled to perfection but also, unlike many other emulations, the preamp behavior, saturation and preamp/EQ interaction have been brought to the DAW format. No other digital model of this classic EQ offers this key interaction that truly defines why this unit was so special and used. The tone-shaping capabilities don’t stop with the wonderfully analog-sounding EQ, the preamp can be used to add “grit” or distortion to tracks, providing a wider sonic palette.

The 3-band EQ is so colorful that it can be used to add character to even the most “sterile” and cold of tracks. High-end air and low-end punch can be boosted without ever sounding harsh or boomy, while the so-called “presence” band is an invaluable tool for sculpting the body of a track.

The EQ 73 will sound great on virtually every audio source. Its combination of preamp circuitry and EQ interaction make it versatile enough to enhance any track, especially kicks, snares, overheads, bass, guitars and vocals. It’s truly one of those pieces where analog heritage was joined with digital power to form true magic.
