YS EQ5 Vintage - Yuri Semenov
The YS EQ5 Vintage plugin is based on the sonic signature of the GML 8200 analogue parametric equalizer - released in 1982, which quickly became the industry standard for all equalizers for two decades, thanks to its astonishing precision and sonic accuracy. . "Simply put, the GML 8200 is the epitome of the stereo parametric EQ. Its extraordinary resolution, benchmark transparency, generous headroom, and surgical precision have set the benchmark for many other EQs, but have been unsurpassed by any other." And this is what Yuri Semenov tries to replicate within the digital domain with the YS EQ5 Vintage parametric equalizer plugin. Note: Yuri has told me in full transparency that this is not an exact copy.
The YS EQ5 Vintage is presented as a color equalizer with five vintage-style equalization bands, with fixed frequency values and a bandwidth (Q) that will allow us to obtain the desired tone. This can be made easier by using toggle combinations with your "mini presets". There is also a mode of smooth and precise adjustment of the desired parameters.
We will find this plugin in three different versions: Stereo, Mono and Dual Mono (Left/Right & Mid/Side). Note: "Introducing differences in settings between channels will give a more spacious sound, use random selection ("RNDM" 1-24( to enter the difference in settings. The Play button allows automatic switching of a random selection of channels , thus eliminating static and adding liveliness to perception."
It also integrates a LUFS loudness meter, which will give you the opportunity to orient yourself to keep in the correct balance. "For ease of comparison, the meter displays the input and output signals."
We will also find the Drive parameters (this allows you to add, control the harmonic color level). Noise (adds noise: these artifacts are not static, but dynamic). Air (will add a psycho-acoustic effect of volume and lightness in the higher frequencies). And more features.
• Note: At this time the plugin only offers a GUI design compatible with large monitors / screens. Hopefully Yuri can update the GUI compatibility with smaller screens soon.
