Luftikus - Analog modeled EQ
Luftikus is a digital adaption to an analog EQ with fext half-octave bands and additional high frequency boost.

As an improvement to the hardware it allows deeper cuts and supports a keep-gain mode where overall gain changes are avoided.

Luftikus has half-octave bands at 10, 40, 160 and 640 Hz, completed by a high shelf at 2.5 kHz. For adding sparkle to recordings a further high frequency boost at 2.5, 5, 10, 20 and 40 kHz can be used. The overall design was improved to allow deeper cuts. The range -5 to +10 is the original range while below -5 results in cuts unavailable in hardware.
Modes

The hardware adds overall gain which can lead to clipping. To counter this an output trim as well as the "Keep Gain" mode is available. While the trim allows manual adjustments the "Keep Gain" mode will keep (more or less) the overall loudness by reducing gain in non-boosted areas.

The "Analog" mode models a more analog behavior while in "Mastering" the controls become stepped and the "Analog" mode performs better.

Hey everyone, I'm having problems installing the vst. Once I've downloaded the .vst file and click on it max opens up and im not sure what to do from there. Usually when i download a max plugin i click on the .amxd file and it immediately opens in ableton, then i save the plugin. Any suggestions on how to get this vst installed? i'm using a mac 10.1 yosemite.

Simply, easy and transparent. The keep gain and high boost wins it for me. It's now a permanent part of my chain for correcting/enhancing VO and dialog.

Windows: In the folder Program Files (x86) you may need to create a folder VSTPlugins. Save the zip file there and open it there

I think, its based on Maag EQ4. With a little development, this plugin should be transformed to payware. Whatever, Amazing EQ, nice colouring. 5/5

I might be wrong but it seems to me that Maag EQ4 came after Luftikus. But it sure and i agree with you, they are similar (EQ frequency, knobs color and nice sounding) ;D

I've just been using this for a week or so and the sound is superb. I had a couple of sounds that were a bit lost in the mix, a little bit of EQ boost from this and WOW !
