Or Get It As Part of R_Ware X Airwindows


AW_MackEQ is a port of the Airwindows MackEQ. The algorithms have been refined for the VM environment.

TL;DW: MackEQ is the Mackie distortion but with treble and bass controls added.

We’re taking an old Mackie 1202, pre-VLZ and we’re mangling sounds with it. People wanted to take a kick drum, run it through one channel turned all the way up, patch that to another channel with crazy EQ and also turned up until ready to explode, and so on. Mackity was my best shot at just the input section of the 1202, with all the gain on tap but set up to work as close to ‘clean’ as these desks ever got: more so, in fact, as it doesn’t add hiss and chip noise. Mackity was really good at sounding exactly like that, for those who like patching out of the insert points and getting a reasonably hi-fi sound out of their old 90s mixer.
