EQ560 by Red Rock Sound

Desktop developer Red Rock Sound, released EQ560, an iOS port of their vintage multi-band EQ for Reason. EQ560 is the developer's first foray into iOS and it looks like a fine start! It is both Universal and arrives with AUv3. The plugin is free to download and try, but has a $5 Unlock IAP.

EQ560 App Store Description:

Features:

- Standalone and AUv3 plug-in;
- Precise port of Rack Extensions plug-in;
- Modeled vintage EQ;
- 10 bands of proprietary equalization;
- Familiar graphics operation on one octave centers;
- 12 dB of boost/cut per band;
- «Proportional Q» narrows filter Q at extremes;
- IN/OUT switch allows the user to bypass the Graphic Eq for before/after comparisons;
- Stereo (Mono), Mid or Side EQ modes.

The curve shaping potential is unmatched, while unique Proportional Q design intuitively widens the filter bandwidth at lower boost/cut levels and narrows it at higher settings.

The EQ560 extends the features of the original hardware and joins the flexibility of the digital world to the character of the analog processing. Allows you to choose between equalizer modes (Stereo, Mid, Side) and remove analogue saturation from the processing circuit to deliver pure digital sound.

The EQ560 is handy when you need to make EQ adjustments on larger parts of the spectrum instead of a restricted area. Boosting or cutting several bands at once will radically alter the sound of a track, be it a thin, weak snare that needs low end or a dull vocal that needs to be opened up.

The EQ560 app filters the microphone input and plays it back in real-time. To use EQ560 as a plug-in, you need an AUv3-compatible host app like GarageBand, Auria, AUM, Cubasis and more — EQ560 will appear in the list of Audio Unit extensions for effect plug-ins in the host app.

The EQ560 is a great complement to the parametric EQ550 and EQ550b.

Way too subtle, can’t hear that much of a difference even with sliders cranked. I’ve never used real (hardware) graphic eq’s this subtle. Maybe there is something I’m missing .. I just tried it as an insert in Cubasis on the Ravencroft piano.

I played with it on AUM with esoteric synth and it gave some nice coloration definitely had its unique boost.
