Volko Audio’s Q American Series plug-ins digitally recreate the classic and legendary API 550a, 550b and 560 vintage American console equalizers, and they sound AMAZING! See what all the fuss is about in the news below.
These equalizers allow you to chisel your signals with surgical precision. They have a modern, easy-to-use user interface. You’ll love their aggressive structure and proportional Q feature.
We use them here at DontCrack on our productions, and literally haven’t heard better from the many out there in the market today, a secret weapon for those wanting fat drums (toms that cut through the mix, sharp snares, smooth cymbals), guitars that are simply “rock ‘n’ roll”, warm and natural vocals…
QA, QB and QG vintage American console equalizer plug-ins support VST, VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for macOS and Winodws platforms.
I have been mixing several projects with Q American Series and I’m pretty much loving them. One of the projects I’m working on had a very unpleasantly and poorly recorded, bass heavy sounding, male vocal. I chose some other EQs to remove that low end. I wasn’t quite happy with either of my choices, then I reached for QA, just to check how QA will handle it. And I was pleased to hear how it nailed the task! Just one knob rotation and boom, that nasty low-end crap is gone. Great Sound!

I know an EQ is great when I simply put it on a track, don’t make any adjustments, and the track instantly sounds better. That’s what the Q American Series equalizers do for me! Very smooth, transparent highs, clear defined mids, punchy and warm low end without mud. Knobs and faders have nice ballistics and the EQ’s “behave” like their much sought-after hardware equivalents. And they look like 500 series “lunchbox” units too – a nice psychological benefit. Great product!
