FREE: Free Ranger EQ VST

The Free Ranger EQ is a unique four-band EQ that aims to emulate studio-quality analogue EQs.

It is ‘limited’, so to speak, to these bands specifically:

  • 16 kHz center frequency – Boost: Glitter, brilliance, air.
  • 1.8kHz center frequency – this is THE EQ test frequencies. An EQ that sounds good here is a good EQ. Therefore it makes a lot of sense to compare EQs in that range. Applications examples: Boost for more bass definition and presence, cut reduces metal for brass.
  • 150 Hz center frequency – Boost: more warmth for everything, main impact of bass instruments, fuller, fatter snares. Cut for vocals: avoids collision with bass.
  • 40 Hz center frequency – Boost: in general fuller sounds, deep bass punch (kick drum). Cut: reduces booming sounds and sub harmonic interferences.

Available for Mac and Windows.

PROS: A nice (and handy) twist on traditional mastering EQs.

CONS: None
