Product Description for the PSP Audioware McQ
PSP McQ captures the sonic character and functionality of various classic console equalizers such as the versatile MCI console EQs. However, while PSP McQ was inspired by these analog classics, we added several modern features such as adjustable high pass and low pass filters, steepness (resonance) control for the shelving filters, optional bell filters for the low and high bands, and three nominal Q values for the midrange filters. We packed the PSP McQ full of musical features, such as gain following Q factors for the midrange bell type filters. By this, we mean that the Q factor of these filters gradually increases along with increases in boost or attenuation. The PSP McQ is especially suited for deep track tweaking in order to get a desired sound for a track, or to get great track separation in the mix.
PSP McQ also includes our unique second generation SAT(uration) option in the output section. This both protects against digital clipping in software or hardware following the plug-in, and adds a smooth, overdriven sound to hard-driven signals. The SATuration algorithm is located after output level control in PSP McQ’s internal chain and its ceiling reference level is setup a fraction of dB below 0dBFS.
What the press say ?
Yes, there are a lot of EQ plug ins out there. But PSP EQs have good sound at a very affordable price. Add to it the fact that the limited frequency selection some titles narrow 'the world of endless twidlling', forcing you to pick a frequency and move on! - just like many of our analog consoles. (...) I wholeheartedly suggest readers try the free demo available from the PSP website.

Most DAWs already come with one or more equaliser plug-ins, but PSP equalisers do manage to capture that elusive warm and cuddly analogue vibe, and that's what you're paying for here.
Paul White, Sound on Sound
Four distinct flavours of EQ. Stunningly combats digital sterility. Beautiful interfaces. Easy to use. Light on your CPU.
