Sugar-Q Sweetening Equalizer

• Classic Baxandall EQ Curves
• Smooth & Natural Character
• Variable Analog Mojo

https://www.propellerheads.com/shop/rac ... equalizer/

Introducing Sugar-Q by SKP Sound Design. Sugar-Q Sweetening Equalizer is a 1U Rack Extension inspired by Peter Baxandall's legendary tone control circuit, the classic that graced us with the world's most popular EQ curves. Whether you are tracking, mixing or mastering, Sugar-Q will improve the sound of any source, without altering the core characteristics of the material.
Product details

The Sugar-Q Rack Extension carves broad, open curves and gentle sloping cuts that provide subtle, yet powerful control over wide sections of the frequency spectrum. It's smooth, musical response and variable analog mojo effortlessly breathe sweet-sounding highs and three-dimensional lows into your tracks, mixes and masters.

Classic design based on Baxandall shelving curves.
5dB of cut and boost in 1/2 step increments for precise control over sweetening.
12dB High and lowpass filters to eliminate infrasonic rumble and high-end noise.
Broad curves allow for powerful changes without altering your source material.
Add subtle analog warmth and character using the Mojo control.

Sugar-Q requires Reason version 10.1 or later.

Bingo! "three-dimensional lows" did it.

Indeed a sweetener. Like in the demo, first decide on the lo cut then put max gain settings and play with the frequencies until you find a sweet spot, back down the gain, set. Same with the high end. Quick and rewarding results.

Both REs from this company very handy

It was a couple of minor things. Tooltip on the "Low Shelf" parameter incorrectly read "Low Freq" and one of the patches had a typo in the title. Other than that it's all the same. :)

Cheers for checking it out.

Well, it's pretty damn awesome as an EQ - I tried it with some of my more minimalist stuff, and I was able to remove a bunch of master channel DSP-hogs. Not that I won't use them again, but WOW! Just plug it in, twiddle-dee-knobs, and BOOM! Sounds great. Low DSP. Right away. Thank you for this!

Anything with a "mojo" parameter can only be a good thing.

more off than on for the rest of the month (may 2021).

i'd not heard of Peter Baxandall although it seems like i have probably heard this circuitry in action, so i'm currently reading up about the negative feedback tone control
