See All Waves Equalizer Software

Vintage EQ with API musicality and software versatility.

Modeled on the API's legendary 550A EQ from the late '60s, Waves API 550A plug-in for native systems provides reciprocal equalization at 15 points in 5 steps of boost divided into three overlapping ranges. The high- and low-frequency ranges are individually selectable as either peaking or shelving, and a band-pass filter can be inserted independently of all other settings. The 550A is a uniquely powerful equalizer with that one-of-a-kind API sound.
