Jovan Iljadica has released J1000, a series of equalizer plug-in effects for Windows.

In terms of digital sound processing these VST plugins are pretty simple and straight-forward. They don't possess any magical properties that will make sound better just by passing through them. They don't emulate vintage studio gear, do not produce 'warm and musical analog sound' (whatever that means) and certainly won't make you the next Phil Spector. They don't deliberately introduce distortion of any kind, like saturation or compression, only slight phase non-linearities. They are just regular equalizers made according to my ideas how should they look like and react.


  • J1000 ALPHA is an equalizer made for fine tuning in post-production. It separates stereo into mid and side signals and allows you independent equalization over both of them. Each of two sections consists of four identical peak filters. The controls are classic F/G/Q that you can find on every fully-parametric equalizer.
  • J1000 BETA is very similar in functionality to Alpha, but adapted to mixing. It's frequency faders work in exactly the same way. Gain range is increased to 6dB (12dB with x2), which is also modest compared to usual mixing equalizers. There is no fader to contiunally adjust Q factor, but you can choose from four bandwidth curves that cover most needs.
  • J1000 GAMMA is an equalizer intended primarily for mastering, probably first of it's kind. It is based on Fletcher-Munson curve, allowing you only to accent the parts of audio spectrum where ear is less sensitive and lower the ones where ear is more sensitive.
  • J1000 DELTA is a mixing EQ with a twist. It shares the same HP/LP and output section as Beta. The obvious differnce is the way Delta handles audio via it's tilt and concurve modules.

The J1000 plug-ins are available as freeware VST effects for Windows PC.
