Heritage Audio 73EQ JR - 500 Series EQ Module
The Neve 1073 is the holy grail of EQ, and the Heritage Audio 73EQ JR nails its sonics and behavior (complete with its fabled harmonic distortion), in a convenient 500 Series module. A characterful 3-band EQ that imbues your tracks with clarity, sheen, warmth, punch, and air, the 73EQ JR rocks that classic, transformer-based Class A sound without relying on an external preamp. You get three bands of inimitable, vintage-Neve-flavored equalization with selectable center frequencies. Whatever you use it on, the results are stunning. The Heritage Audio 73EQ JR - your studio needs
The sound of countless hit records
Massive, punchy, vibrant sound that seems to leap from your speakers. It's the sound that created countless hit albums, and you've got it on tap with the 73EQ JR 500 Series module.
All the EQ you should ever need
The original 1073 was designed in 1970 as purpose-built preamp/EQ module for Neve 80 Series consoles. Like the original, the Heritage Audio 73EQ's high and low bands are shelving Baxandall types; the mids are fixed-Q dual-inductor based. It's broad-strokes EQ, but it sounds incredible and it's all you may ever need. As a side note: if you have tracks that require surgical EQ precision, chances are good you're doing something wrong earlier in the signal chain.
