Tchad Blake (Peter Gabriel, Sheryl Crow, Pearl Jam, Suzanne Vega)
“This is the sexiest EQ I've ever heard. How did those guys make this? Brutal and beautiful at the same time. Just wonderful.”
Jake Davies, engineer (Keane, Bjork, Madonna, William Orbit)
"I recently found myself without my Abbey Road plugins and realised i couldn't work without them. The TG12413 Limiter combined with the TG Mastering EQ's is an instant "killer" drum sound. They've become a staple part of my setup"
Bob Weston, engineer/musician (Chicago Mastering Service, Shellac, Mission of Burma)
"I'm floored by how true to the hardware originals the TG12412 and TG12414 EQ plugins are. I've sat-in on a few mastering sessions at Abbey Road and have always loved the sound and functionality of those EQs (and have lusted after a set of my own). The ability to implement a shelving EQ either above OR below ALL of the frequency points is unique and immensely useful. I've found myself opting for these plugins over my normal analog EQ choices quite often since we got them. In fact, on some projects this is the only EQ that I use."
Steve Evans, producer/mixer (Robert Plant, Siouxsie Sioux, Proclaimers, Status Quo)
"After many mastering sessions at Abbey Road it's great to actually get my hands on such a musical palette of EQ tools. I now use these all the time, particularly the four band EQ. It's possible to bring out the fundamental of a signal in the low end without just adding mulch, and the mids can be heavily boosted, and yet the musicality of the sound is preserved."
Michael Wagener, producer/mixer (Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Alice Cooper)
"They are subtle, not too in your face, but just right to get the sound you're looking for...very smooth."
John Kurlander, former Chief Balance Engineer, Abbey Road Studios (1985-1996)
"The TG Mastering Pack is an excellent simulation of the original hardware, and it's legendary predecessor, the EMI Curvebender which we used in the sixties. The centre frequencies and their multiples, produce incredibly musical results, and the sound of the original circuitry is impressively reproduced."
Ross Hogarth (Ziggy Marley, R.E.M., Jewel, Melissa Etheridge)
"I use the EQs when I want to add some air, when I want to poke the midrange out but am not looking to surgically find a frequency. They're sweet-sounding."
Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Pernice Brothers, Beachwood Sparks)
"Whoa... best sounding digital EQ I've ever heard. I love this plugin... kind of like a ‘super Pultec’ with enough points and shapes so that you can use it as a corrective EQ without losing the flavor of limited options... it's just right."
Andy Gray, writer/producer/remixer (Paul Oakenfold, Tori Amos, Gary Numan)
“Very different from other EQ plugins I have. Very warm and rounded. My last mix was for "Jackson Analogue", who love old retro gear, so I decided to use only the EMI EQ and Limiter on the mix. I used the D-Control as my front-end and inserting only the EMI plugins made it sound like I was mixing on an old EMI desk, which was great fun. Like a new desk (well, very old new desk)”
