Focusrite – Midnight EQ

I will start this Analysis/Review with the description from the Focusrite website:

” Focusrite’s new Midnight plug-in suite takes two of the most iconic Focusrite modules of all time – the ISA110 equaliser and ISA130 compressor; models their sound exactly with powerful DSP technology; and gives them elegant, functional on-screen front panels that make them simplicity itself to use. Now you can add that authentic, classic Focusrite sound to your own tracks at a price you can afford. Your productions have never sounded so good.”

Alright, will this be the case ? proceed to find out….

We will begin with the Midnight EQ. The company is claiming to be modeled exactly with powerfull DSP Tech after ISA110. Bellow are the equalliazation setting used for this analysis, I have cranked up everything, if theres any analogue modeling its gonna show up.

Well not much can be verified at this point, since its all cranked up it should look like this. But right off the bat I can tell there is no modeled noise because if that was the case the FR line would seem thicker.


Based on the ‘extreme’ settings this should be ‘extreme’ to some extend aswell, can’t really jump to any conclusions yet…


No distortion.  


The gui looks great other than that, this is a digital equalizer.
