The 6020 Ultimate EQ is a collection of ten equalizer models using the popular module format leveraging McDSP’s two decades of design experience. All 6020 Ultimate EQ modules are designed by McDSP, drawing on inspiration from classic and modern equalizers over the last four decades. Each module is easy to operate, and yet has enough sophistication for the most discerning professional.
Whatever your style, from smooth tube emulations to aggressive solid-state designs, the 6020 Ultimate EQ has a custom-made equalizer module that is just right for you.

Clean Vocals
The high pass filter of the EZ Q (and also the British E module) is great for removing vocal plosives, and all these modules have good frequency ranges for fine tuning.
Gigantic Drums
The EQ’76, FRE EEE and E 357 modules are great for drums, like their compressor modules counterparts.
Extreme Versatility
Any of the 6020 modules are good for keyboards, guitar, and other instruments, but the E300/301 modules balance the flexibility of a modern equalizer with the restrictions of a more classic design.
"Super easy to use and each equalizer has a very distinct tone and character. A wanna have bundle if you're looking for a lot of EQ sound options!"

MODULES
10 Unique Modules of EQ
All McDSP designs, drawing on inspiration from classic and modern equalizers over the last four decades.

    E670


    Fairchild made not only great compressor/limiters, they also put out a few program equalizers. The Fairchild 664, a two band EQ, served as the basis for the E670 design. Gentle low and high shelving EQ, complimented by a mid band parametric, give the E670 a smooth sound, but the three bands (each with its own gain and frequency control) provide flexibility expected in the modern studio. Suitable for subtle adjustments in any mixing situation.

    Moo Q


    All tube designs are known for a warm tone with tons of headroom. The Moo Q delivers these qualities and more in a three band package.

    ×

    iQ


    The only two-band equalizer in the 6060 collection, the iQ is surprisingly adept at fine tuning mixes in any music genre. Tracks needing some low end ‘glow’ or high end ‘sheen’ can benefit from use of the iQ module.

    E300


    While there may be no electro-optical attenuation in these equalizers, McDSP wanted to have equalizer modules that complimented the Opto-C/L compressor modules in the 6060 Ultimate Module Collection plug-in. The Opto-C/L modules are good general purpose compressors, with the Opto-L module operating more like a vintage limiter. In that spirit, the E300/301 modules are very utilitarian as well.

    E301


    While there may be no electro-optical attenuation in these equalizers, McDSP wanted to have equalizer modules that complimented the Opto-C/L compressor modules in the 6060 Ultimate Module Collection plug-in. The Opto-C/L modules are good general purpose compressors, with the Opto-L module operating more like a vintage limiter. In that spirit, the E300/301 modules are very utilitarian as well. The E300 and E301 three-band modules have the same frequency and gain ranges, but the E301 is a tad narrower in bandwidth, especially at higher gain settings.

    British-E


    McDSP’s own FilterBank plug-in, originally released in 1998, harnessed the fundamental design characteristics of the Neve line of equalizers, most notably the 1069, 1073 and 1081, with its unique Peak, Slope, and Dip controls. The British E module uses this same FilterBank technology to create an amalgamation of great Neve equalizers. The classic hpf, low shelf, parametric, high shelf combination makes the British E module useful for most mixing situations.

    EZ Q


    The folks at dbx did not release any parametric equalizers to match their classic compressor product line. But if they did, here at McDSP we think it would have sounded like the EZ Q. Using a high pass filter to carve out the rumble, plus capable low and high shelfs, and a fairly flexible parametric, the EZ Q gets the job done.

    ×

    EQ'76


    This 6060 module draws from the UREI 545 parametric equalizer. The EQ’76 has four bands of paramtric equalization with a slight Q-gain dependency. The EQ’76 design is close to that of the E300/301 modules, but using a different set of frequency ranges and a more modern gain-dependent bandwidth design.

    FRG EEE


    What else can compliment a compressor nicknamed ‘The Frog’ (FRG444 from the 6030 Ultimate Compressor plug-in) than an equalizer with a name like FRG EEE (pronounced ‘froggy’). Two parametrics bounded by a high and low shelf pair, the FRG EEE is a capable equalizer, not unlike what is seen in modern channel strips in analog mixing consoles.

    ×

    E357


    The E357 is a 3-band EQ meant to work in tandem with the D357 compressor. The slopes are steeper than most other EQ modules, and have a bit of character (like the D357). Use with caution.
