Avid MDW Hi-Res Parametric EQ 3.0 - TDM & RTAS - Electronic Delivery

Optimum high-res digital EQ plug-in featuring double precision processing
MFR# 9910-59128-00

Product Description

Developed by the creator of the parametric EQ, George Massenburg, Massenburg DesignWorks® Hi-Res Parametric EQ 3.0 emulates the filter curves of Massenburg’s legendary GML 8200 reference-standard equalizer. Designed for Pro Tools|HD® systems, version 3.0 offers new RTAS® support, giving you the flexibility to use the EQ with Pro Tools LE® and Pro Tools M-Powered™ systems too. With its unprecedented clarity, unmatched smoothness, and excellent high-frequency response, MDW® Hi-Res Parametric EQ will help you achieve optimal definition in your mixes.


  • Wide frequency selection, from 10 Hz to 41 kHz, with variable Q and choice of three- or five-band EQ
  • Double-precision 48 bit processing for unprecedented clarity
  • Emulates GML 8200 constant shape reciprocal filter curves — the industry-standard reference
  • IsoPeak® functionality lets you quickly solo a target frequency band
  • A/B snapshots allow settings comparisons
  • Supports both TDM and RTAS plug-in formats

Avid MDW® Hi-Res Parametric EQ emulates the constant shape reciprocal filter curves of Massenburg’s legendary GML 8200 equalizer — the industry-standard reference. The plug-in offers a choice of three or five bands of equalization (both versions support the ultra-wide 10 Hz to 41 kHz frequency range) to target certain frequencies, or conserve DSP resources when only three bands of EQ are needed.

Professional Features
MDW Hi-Res Parametric EQ offers a number of features to help you achieve better mixes. It allows you to view the frequency grid in 6, 12, or 24 dB resolution for more editing precision. IsoPeak® lets you quickly isolate and sweep through the frequency spectum to find a targeted frequency. You can also toggle between two EQ band settings using A/B snapshots, copy one setting to the other, and invert the phase of a track. And when used with an ICON worksurface or Avid® control surface, the EQ organizes the bands into ergonomic groups on the channel strips.

High-Resolution Filtering
MDW Hi-Res Parametric EQ 3.0 lives up to its high-resolution name. The plug-in delivers double-precision 48 bit processing for optimal clarity with natural-sounding results. It also provides high-resolution 96 kHz sample-rate processing for audio recorded at 48 kHz or 96 kHz, and 192 kHz sample-rate processing for 192 kHz audio, allowing for increased headroom, fewer artifacts, and more predictable filter curves. And with a variable Qs (adjustable bandwidths) from 25.6 (1/18 of an octave) to 0.1 (6-2/3 octaves), MDW Hi-Res Parametric EQ 3.0 delivers unmatched precision.

Excellent DSP Efficiency
MDW Hi-Res Parametric EQ 3.0 allows you to tailor the number of frequency bands for better DSP processing efficiency. Use the three-band version to conserve resources, allowing you to instantiate the EQ plug-in up to eight times per DSP chip at 48 kHz and 96 kHz on Pro Tools|HD® Accel systems. With the five-band version, you can instantiate the EQ plug-in up to four times per DSP chip at 48 kHz and 96 kHz on Pro Tools|HD Accel systems.

System Requirements:

  • Avid-qualified Windows- or Mac-based Pro Tools|HD®, Pro Tools LE®, or Pro Tools M-Powered™ system unning Pro Tools® 7.3 or higher software
  • iLok USB Smart Key (sold separately), Internet access, and free iLok.com account for authorization

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
