Analog Obsessions: SSQ

Personally, I love finding good quality plugins from indie developers. Recently I discovered one of my most exciting finds with the SSQ by Analog Obsessions. This developer offers a wide selection of analog emulations at zero cost. Thats right, they are all FREE! On finding this goldmine, I immediately installed all of their plugins and gave them a test run. The one that stood out to me was the SSQ, an emulation based on a solid state EQ. It features 4 bands with controls for curve and frequency, along with bell options for the low and high bands. Solid state EQ's are known for their beautiful saturation, and the SSQ matches our expectations wonderfully as you drive the input. An input/output link option comes in handy when driving this plugin. What excites me the most about this emulation is that it sounds absolutely gorgeous on the high end. If you have ever mixed modern vocals, you know the struggle of obtaining that high frequency shimmer without the harshness. Well, this is your tool. I use the SSQ on my vocal chain almost every time. Analog Obsessions provides their plugins (AU, VST, VST3) from their patreon page, at:

I highly recommend donating if you can.

Final Review:

Value for money: 5/5

Sound Quality: 4/5

Ease of use: 4/5

Overall: 4/5
