In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring MPReq from Analog Obsession, a model of a vintage mic preamp with two band EQ
The MPReq is a simple plug-in which models a vintage mic pre. While they aren't specific about what hardware has been modelled, they do refer to carefully designed transformers and tubes.
The stand out feature for me is the to band passive EQ Eq which while only offering fixed frequencies of 100Hz and 12 kHz, they have the separate boost and attenuation controls found on Pultecs meaning that using both boosts and cuts at the same time, interesting new timbres can be produced.
