basiQ is an acronym for Baxandall simulation equalizer.

It is a 3-band equalizer plugin with photorealistic graphics from Kuassa, Inc. As the name implies, the engine are modeled after a design of classic baxandall equalizer well known for its smooth shelves and natural-sounding responses, similar to the tone control on a hi-fi systems. The simple controls allow you to shape the frequency from many sources to your needs, from opening up an air on guitar leads, adding a gentle shimmer on vocals, giving extra ‘oomph‘ on your synth basslines, or even getting more presence from your masters.

This straightforward equalizer are well-suited for mixing or mastering purpose although the neutral characteristic of basiQ are more suitable as a ‘sweetening‘ device or giving some transparent ‘tilt‘ to your mix rather than a surgical device, best paired on master output with Kratos Maximizer, another audio processing plugin from Kuassa, Inc.
  • Simple tone control with large Low, Mid, and High knobs
  • Preset Management with 12 preset slot within a single bank
  • Mono and Stereo applicable
  • Supports up to 96 kHz Sample Rate
  • Compact and straightforward user interface

This is true to real Baxandal. I know because I've build couple of real ones. I use it all the time, great for vintage rock. Only improvement would be a components circuit tone modeling but it probably wouldn't work anyway since no plugin can sound like the real deal. To fix that, sometimes I run it through some hardware unit in bypass. Crazy? Maybe :)

It´s not crazy IMO! But you can also use a free saturation-plugin (Voxengo TubeAmp or FerricTDS) in combination with this eq to add some "anlogue circuit".

Record acoustic guitars through a microphone. Insert this in the track. Put the High knob at 1 o'clock. Other knobs at unity. Listen. Enjoy. Bounce it to a new track. Use it in the mix.

So simple to use, but has a lovely sound and a great way to lift something out of the mix, even just by adding or cutting a small amount. Sometimes uncomplicated works best.
