Red Rock EQ560 Free

When I got my new Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT headphones I did some research so I could set them up for studio monitoring – which basically means endeavouring to get a totally flat frequency response with no colouration. These headphones are known for having a slight bass lift.

I found a great technical reference page:

This gave me the frequency response profile for the headphones, and even the settings to use with a parametric or fixed band EQ to accurately correct this.

Although I could use one of the standard Logic plugins, I found the EQ560 plugin by Red Rock Sounds:

This is a very nice graphic fixed band equaliser.

So I now have this on the Logic master output, and can switch it in whenever I’m monitoring and mixing on these headphones.
