Red EQ is one of many in the Acustica Audio free plugin series. The Red Equalizer is a little different because it's a 3 band software EQ that's emulating a hardware EQ.
The Red EQ equalizer provides three fixed bands at 80Hz, 1.8kHz and 8kHz, the upper and lower bands being shelving while the middle has a traditional bell response. There's an ample 16dB of cut and boost. Even though the EQ appears to have major restrictions, there is a lot of room to be creative and musical with this plugin.
A five-section led level meter and an output gain knob allow you to control the overall output level from the unit up to a maximum of +6dB. A red warning lamp lights if the signal is getting close to clipping and distorting. It can be used to make adjustments in the most needed areas of the audio spectrum without the sound losing its original intention.
