The hardware Electra EQ set a high standard for fast, smooth, punchy equalization, and the Electra DSP’s precisely modeled filters embody that spirit flawlessly.
The high shelf is surprisingly flexible, the bass reaches down to the floor. But those midrange filters have a magic proportional-Q, the more you boost the tighter they get. They’re so articulate, they can make drums sound like they were tuned and even mic’d differently.
No matter how aggressively its set, Electra is relentlessly smooth and unapologetically analog in character.
