Extremely Accurate

NoiseAsh Audio is proud to bring the original vintage amplifier and eq units into your DAW. Expertly captured, totally detailed, extremely accurate analog models for sculpting your sound just like legendary top-rated British style consoles. Thanks to NoiseAsh modeling technology; warm, bold, and distinguishing analog characteristics, even little details are exactly here in the box now with NEED 533 Eq.

Nuance Deviation System

Analog domain components have some little tonal nuance differences which create some deviations concerning their theoretical values. Nuance Deviation System (NDS) is the NoiseAsh Audio proprietary signal processing model, which emulates the sonic character deviations of the analog components. Individual Left-Mid and Right-Side channels can be alternated with NDS. There are plenty of carefully modeled console channels and each number stands for a console channel bearing its deviation. With NDS, real tonal differences can be captured quickly!

Right in your DAW, very easily!

Innovative cutting-edge NoiseAsh technology has given the analog reality with a very light CPU usage, expanded modern features like NDS & Mid/Side options, and maximum accurate Anti-Aliasing Analog tone behavior. NEED 533 EQ is much more than an emulation. It’s what every mixing/mastering environment needs for letting you enjoy all the warm tones of this vintage unique sound of the studio equipment, right in your DAW, in-the-box, very easily!
