this thing is pure magic on vocals, guitars, and synths. the way it can aggressively push mids and highs without ever sounding artificial or unpleasant is unique, and effortlessly brings dull tracks to life. the low band is great for adding pronounced weight to a kick drum - equally at home in old school rock, hip-hop, and modern dance mixes. far from a surgical EQ, but with enough character and flexibility to find its way on just about every track i mix.
I swear I hear magic in this EQ. I have the 1081, 1073, 88RS, Pultec, & Cambrige EQ. All are great at what they do, but I found shaping drums with the 69 adds a lot of character. To me I think this EQ sounds more natural than the 1073. You can hear the EQ bring out the wood in the instrument it's crazy. Put this on individual drums tracks and Pultec & 1176 on Drum Buss and your golden. Thanks UA.
My go to eq for really thick Guitars!! I really love this eq-
This was a bonus when I bought the Apollo Twin. I've only played around with it a bit so far, but it will definitely serve a purpose.
I got this bad boy free with my Apollo Twin Duo! What a prize! Very easy to use EQ.
Took a little time to get familiar with it. But it really helps my mixes shine.
Material Very wonderful recomento everyone jump in quality of our songs have vastly improved congratulations to the entire team at UA Tamos al To Collaborate and I rsrsrsrs More Giveaways
I love this EQ for imparting a real old-desk analog mojo to individual tracks as well as the stereo mix bus. Great for fattening up and refreshing electric and acoustic guitar, and I like it a lot on bass and stereo drum mixes as well. Easy to get great results quickly. The preset names are 60's - 70's funky, fun but not truly informative. But that's OK -- kind of fits with the overall groovy vibe of this plug-in.
This is a plugin that was nowhere near the top of my list to purchase, but I got it free as a 'thank-you-plugin'. If I had know it was this great it would have been on the top of my list. It doesn't look like much, but you get an instant vintage vibe with this plugin. It has become my to-go EQ for bassgtr and kick drum. I like it even better than the Pultec. In one word: wow
i only have one word for this review...OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got this plugin as a bonus for buying an Apollo 16 interface. I was expecting some cheap bottom of the barrel software, but boy was I surprised! This is now my go to plugin for acoustic guitars. I no longer shuffle through a bunch EQ's to get an amazing sound, just slap the Helios type 69 plug, tweak it and you're golden. I won't try to describe the aural characteristics of this plugin, as I believe audio is a very subjective concept, just try it. You most likely won't be disappointed!
Really stunning Eq, that hits the mids and vocals just as i need it to. solid work. looking forward to more eqs in the future.
UA gave me this plugin free with the Apollo Twin and I couldn't be happier. Initially I was kind of bummed because I really wanted the EMT 140 (the main reason I wanted to get on the UAD platform), but I soon realised I was being stupid. I put the Helios on a vocal and added 2dB at 10k and wow! I would probably pay full price for this plugin just for that 10k band. You can crank that thing like mad and it never sounds harsh or thin. Amazing. Use it all the time on vox and acoustic guitars these days. The mids are great on electrics. Still haven't played with the lows but I'm sure they'll be good.
The Helios is a must have plugin for music production. I highly recommend it.
Davvero facile ha metà dei comandi dei soliti equalizzatori eppure con poco tocchi si riesce a far uscire tutte le sonorità che hai nella testa
reat plug-in. Use it to boost som mids on electric guitar tracks... Sweet
well I just started using this plug in, indeed it gives a extra boost and bring clarity to the mix, indeed allows me to cut precisely the amount needed from the bottom of any track plus boost the highs which makes the mix pleasant to the Ear. It is an outstanding plug in, it allows the mix to maintain its true sound. Thank you guys for taking the time to make such a Good plug in.
If you want to enhance you track, particularly acoustic instruments, then here is a good EQ for the job. If you are looking to fix major EQ get something more in-depth but this shines on Drums and Acoustic Guitar. It has vibe.
Man i got this little guy for free when I registered my Apollo. Such an amazing value. I love it.
Haven't really used it much but so far it's pretty amazing for what i've heard. I just started using UAS-2 Plug-ins and am just constantly amazed by the color and clarity these plugins bring to the table. This is an awesome EQ.
