Waves API 550A & 550B Equalizers Plug-In

Modeled on the late 1960's legend, the API 550A EQ provides reciprocal equalization at 15 points in 5 steps of boost divided into three overlapping ranges.

Waves API 550A & 550B Equalizers Plug-In Detail

The Waves API 550A & 550B Equalizers Plug-In gives you a recreation of both the 550A, and 550B EQ's, for your DAW.

API 550A
Modeled on the late 1960's legend, the API 550A EQ provides reciprocal equalization at 15 points in 5 steps of boost divided into three overlapping ranges. The high and low frequency ranges are individually selectable as either peaking or shelving, and a band-pass filter can be inserted independently of all other settings. The 550A is a uniquely powerful equalizer with that one-of-a-kind API sound.

API 550B
Featuring four overlapped EQ bands, the API 550B is invaluable as both a problem solver and a sweetening device. With 7 switchable filter frequencies spanning up to 5 octaves per band, the 550B??s ??Proportional Q? automatically widens the filter bandwidth at minimal settings and narrows it at higher settings. It even lets you undo previous processing, affect or even reverse tonal modifications. With its vast range of tonal possibilities, the API 550B is a versatile EQ for all your processing needs.

Less is more September 17, 2012
Reviewer: Thorsten Bartel from Oberhausen, NRW Germany  
The 550 EQs are easy to use and just do the right job in many occasions. The missing controls such as the Q-parameter of the individual bands may be considered as drawback, however, I don't miss them. I use these EQs frequently for single drum tracks and for drum and guitar stems.
