Founded by Cliff Mäag in 2009, Maag Audio has long been synonymous with exceptional sound quality and precision craftsmanship. Best known for the brand’s innovative AIR BAND EQ circuit, Maag Audio offers a wide range of professional studio tools, including preamps, compressors, and plug-ins. In our latest Quick Hits video, we’re putting the Maag Audio EQ4 to the test.

The Maag Audio EQ4 500 Series EQ brings the iconic sound and functionality of the renowned Maag EQ4M mastering equalizer into the compact and flexible 500 Series format. Designed with meticulous attention to detail, the EQ4 captures the essence of the original hardware while offering the convenience and versatility demanded by modern audio professionals.

Since its release, the Maag Audio EQ4 has become a must-have tool for audio engineers, producers, and musicians alike. At its core, the EQ4 offers six bands of transparent and musical EQ, allowing you to sculpt your audio with precision and finesse. Its unique AIR BAND shelf EQ provides a silky smooth boost at high frequencies, adding an airy and open quality to vocals, acoustic instruments, and mixes.

With its intuitive controls, the Maag Audio EQ4 makes it easy to shape the frequency response of your audio without losing the character and integrity of the original source. Whether you're looking to add warmth and depth to a vocal track, tighten up the low end of a drum kit, or bring out the sparkle in a guitar solo, the Maag Audio EQ4 delivers exceptional results.

We recently had the opportunity to try out the Maag Audio EQ4 while recording acoustic guitar down at the Vintage King Nashville Showroom. Watch our latest Quick Hits video below to hear the results.
