Reviews & Testimonials
Robert “Bob” Olhsson — legendary indy engineer (Smokey Robinson, Temptations, Steve Roach, Marvin Gaye)
“The ability to recall projects is very important to me and to my clients, so I started moving my signal processing…to Pro Tools and needed to bid goodbye to the (legacy) Algorithmix plug-ins. It turns out I was not alone in wishing for new compatible versions of these extraordinary plugins.
What I love about thEQred is being able to combine this utterly transparent equalizer with my (outboard) hardware. It simply doesn't screw anything up while adding whatever EQ tweaks I can imagine. Also, the continuous-slope shelving is pretty amazing, especially with very natural sounding acoustic recordings.”
Charles “Chip” Reardin – indy engineer (Gary Katz, Sylvia McNair, Straight No Chaser)
“Absolutely stunning EQ. Really. I am very picky, and I've been searching for an ITB EQ of this quality for SO many years. Hats off!…
I've always cringed at the side-effects of high-passing or notching on a mixbus or master with virtually all VST EQs (unless the mix really calls for it, obviously). Orange was the first plug-in I've heard that didn't instantly degrade the mix (and I've tried most if not ALL). Then Red, SO sweet on the highs. Don't think twice about using these on a master! Thanks again for providing these excellent EQs. Orange and Red are just unparalleled ITB EQs IMHO.”

“I still use blue and red…Blue and red remain unsurpassed sound-wise.”
Sakis Anastopoulos, Digisound Mastering
“I must tell you that I am absolutely ecstatic with the results that I have been achieving with the
linear phase EQs…Both Red and Orange EQs have absolutely replaced every other EQ that I own and have given
me the ability and freedom to perform challenging frequency adjustment tasks in every project that I master
no matter how challenging or what genre it is…Their ability to resolve with accuracy, clarity and
musicality, frequency ranges in complex music passages is astonishing, allowing the mastering engineer to
focus on the project and forget the artifacts that are usually associated with this kind of processors.”
Graemme Brown, Zen Mastering
“I have spent most of my time with the red version of the LinearPhase PEQ and can honestly say that it is the best sounding software EQ that I have ever heard!”
Bob Katz, Digital Domain
“…the Algorithmix Red and Orange Linear Phase equalizers are must haves.”
Alan Silverman, Arf! Digital
“The depth and punch of the lows and the air and silkiness of the highs are by far the best by far in my experience. A new benchmark…This has now become my default high and low EQ. Chaka (Khan) said the CD sounded incredible and her producer said the lows and highs were ‘amazing.’”
Eric James, reviewing in Sound On Sound magazine
“Red offers totally transparent control of the whole sonic spectrum. Red’s Continuous Slope function on shelving filters is very useful, especially in mastering…Algorithmix's Red mastering EQ is comparable in quality to the best digital hardware units at a fraction of their price.”
Christian van Caine, sound designer (Dreams of Las Vegas, Support Group Olympus, Reya)
“Been demoing Red for a few days now and owned Orange since not long after release. They complete each other beautifully! Fantastic on their own, together the most three-dimensional sound I’ve ever heard”
T-Dogg on our Dr. Christoph’s chops (via GearSlutz)
“The real gurus in the field…Dr. Christoph Musialik, etc. have far surpassed these textbook
algorithms…Simply put, genius–level R&D and know–how is priceless.” We concur and know that you will too!
