"Legendary design in a compact 500 series package - Maag EQs and Maag mic pres are genuinely useful tools in the studio. There is no searching and struggling to get a sound, I just reach for the blue, it knows what to do!"
"Loving my Maag EQ4 and Magnum K comp! Great gear, great company!"
Tony uses Maag EQ4M everyday in his New York City Studio
"The Maag PREQ4 preamp is more than just a really punchy mic pre. The addition of the AIR BAND eq with selectable frequencies is just amazing. For cleaner Tele or Strat guitar sounds to making a ribbon mic pop more in a drum room, it's easy to make things stick out in a mix. So much control in a 500 slot."
Chris Lord-Alge aka CLA adds the Mäag Audio EQ4M
"I love the clarity and punch of Maag hardware, the AIR BAND is legendary and can always be found sitting on both my mix and drum buses. When I run out of channels it’s easy, I just add the plugin version!"
"The EQ4M opens new possibilities to the legendary EQ3 and EQ3D and the ability to recall them. Adding just the right amount of AIR will open up the sound and give it depth. The AIR BAND sounds great and having the option to bypass it to audition is a great feature. On any of the eq bands, small moves mean big changes. one click on the knob ether way will make a difference."
“Every hit, every #1, ever Grammy mix I have ever done has featured Maag EQs. The EQ$ is my current favorite product from Maag Audio. I use it to EQ vocals, drums, acoustic instruments and of course the stereo buss.”
F. Reid Shippen
"I'll never track ribbon mics without the AIR BAND again... Have you ever been outside after a thunderstorm, and everything is clean, clear, and vibrant? This is what using the AIR BAND feels like to me, sonically... It's audio Photoshop."
“Using the EQ4M is like lifting a veil off of my mix & the Mäag family are great people."
"Since I had Maag EQ in my rig, sound quality incredibly improved. For its presence and transparency, Maag is my first choice for vocals, snare and kick drum. Maag... mamma mia!! :)"
"The AIR BAND adds sizzle on my cymbals. The AIR BAND Pres are clean, punchy and add a nice sheen to vocals."
"After 20+ years in the business there aren’t many things that come along that make me go WOW, but Maag Audio has done it! The EQ4 is now a part of the fiber of my being and is on every recording and mix I do."
"Once you try the EQ4 you will never go back. Now i cannot take it off the Mix bus and it is on every single vocalist of every single mix i do"
D. Brent Nelson
"The Maag Air Band 2-channel EQ enhances the richness, warmth and intensity in my mixes without becoming brittle. Absolutely the best sounding EQ I’ve put across my buss – EVER!!"
"Maag EQ's have been living on my mix buss since I got them! The AIR BAND has been a game changer!"
"I absolutely love the clarity and depth of the Maag EQ4, it’s a must have on my mix bus… When I need to open the top end of a mix without being aggressive on the high mids, the air band is something magic, sweet and bright at the same time! The 40Hz knob is great to add extra weight to the low end if needed… Super clean and punchy!"
"The EQ4 simplifies the way to get to the right tone from any source that you run through it, in a magical way. Opens the air of a vocal or brings out a sub kick drum; the Maag EQ4 does it perfectly. The right amount of AIR will shape the bright/clarity of a Mix and the outcome is like chocolate to my ear. The curve is very wide between each band and every step makes a huge difference in a Beautiful way. In addition, It's very easy to recall your steps...one of the best eqs in the world."
"The Magnum-K is simply one of the greatest audio products ever to be released. The Magnum comp section shines at effortlessly bringing low level information to the foreground. The K comp section can really tame some of the harshness out of your signal path. The LMF section can add richness and weight, while the Air Band section is famous for lifting film off your audio, has neo-selections of 25k and 30k- all in parallel! And if that wasn’t overkill already, they included the most musical soft limit I’ve ever heard. Every signal I send through it ends up sounding more expensive out the other end."
"There is no Mixing or Mastering that does not use my EQ4M Equalizer, Simply Musical and Clarity."
“The Maag EQ4, as both analogue & digital versions, is stunning. It’s become the first thing I’ll try on just about any source, and I rarely have to look any further to get great results”
