Maag Audio have announced their long awaited EQ2 plug-in exclusively distributed through Plugin Alliance.
The Maag Audio EQ2 hardware is a 2 band boost only equalizer with AIR BAND®, Low Mid Frequency (LMF) bell boost from SUB to 1.4 kHz, and an INPUT ATTN to control down to –12.5 dB of attenuation. The LMF provides both tight or wide bell curve options. Both top and bottom bands can be turned on and off independently, allowing the user the opportunity to use it on either the top and bottom, or indeed both.

The Maag EQ2 follows on from the hugely popular Maag EQ4 which won the Pro Tools Expert People's Choice Award 2013
Here's what Plugin Alliance say about the new Maag EQ2 plug-in.
The Mäag EQ4 is one of Plugin Alliance’s most popular plugins. International pros rely on its tremendous musicality to enhance their tracks. Now Mäag has released their TEC Award nominated EQ2 in a plugin version, bringing that Air Band® magic to a lower price point and creating the perfect compliment to the EQ4. While the Mäag EQ2 provides some of the same audio magic of its bigger brother, it also adds features which make it the perfect companion to the EQ4. While the EQ4’s wide, musical control over 4 frequency bands make it the best EQ on the market for sweetening your tracks, the EQ2’s second band offers greater control over center frequencies and bandwidth selections, making it a great tool for fixing problems or creating more radical changes.
The EQ2 also has the legendary Air Band like the EQ4, but offers a 15khz band not found on the EQ4. The EQ2’s 11 LMF bell selections on its LMF band: 6 wide and 5 tight, broaden its frequency selections compared to the EQ4, which has only wide bell selections. This allows the EQ2 to zoom in on problem areas in a manner that EQ can’t. The EQ2 also features an Input Attenuator not found on the EQ4 to help normalize the signal before applying EQ.
You’ve heard the Mäag Audio EQ sound on the vocals of artists ranging from Madonna to Celine Dion, and from the Black Eyed Peas to Snoop Dogg. Now you can have this legendary sound right inside your DAW.
Mäag Audio’s EQ design allows for exceptionally low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of your mix’s original sound while enhancing the “Airy” frequencies. The Air Band interacts with the other bands to tonally sculpt your tracks from top to bottom with unrivaled transparency and top-end presence.
