Italian software company Acustica’s mastering plug-in Diamond Color EQ, a collaboration with Luca Pretolesi of EDM mix experts Studio DMI, got a great review in SOS July 2017, and has now been upgraded (as well as turning red). Diamond Color EQ‑3 adds even finer EQ control for mastering engineers, including three new frequency ranges in the high‑mid‑frequency EQ band, the ability to separately process Left and Right channels, or Mid/Side mix information, and a new Focus control, which reduces the range of steps on the ±24dB input control from 1dB down to one third of a decibel, allowing much finer adjustments. There are also all-new 6dB/octave low- and high‑cut filters. Diamond Color EQ‑3 is available to download now for €199.
