Wow! True 252 has some serious vibe. It quickly found a new home on my sub groups and mix bus!
- 11x Grammy-nominated mixer Joe Carrell

7 bands of musical history in your DAW.

True 252 gives you:

✔️ A painstakingly accurate emulation of the Langevin 252-A Graphic Equalizer (one of the rarest hardware circuits on the vintage audio market)

✔️ 7 bands of motor city mojo that brings tracks, busses, and masters to life (this EQ doesn't just shape the music, it makes it)

✔️ Continuous gain control (not stepped as with competing plugin emulations of similar EQs)

✔️ Built-in gain compensation maintains the same apparent loudness irrespective of the EQ slider settings (so you can work quickly and accurately)

✔️ 100% cramping-free equalization (maintains analog accuracy across the frequency spectrum)

Effortless, immediate, and always musical.

You'll also get:

✔️ Oversampling up to 32x with separate settings for real-time and offline processing (adjustable on the fly)

✔️ 2 distinctly iconic UI themes (black and gray) based on the faceplates of the original 252-A and its cosmetic variation, the 270

✔️ Resizable GUI - expand to fit your desired window size

✔️ 100% perpetual license for multiple devices, no iLok authorization required, no dinosaur dongle insanity required, and ZERO subscription fees EVER

This thing is SMOOTH

This is not a wild eq. It's a calm, collected, deep, punchy, tactile and warm eq. I use it as a mastering eq, combined with the amazing air band on the Avalon 747. They go together like pasta and bolognese, like Laurel and Hardy. The low registry on this is smoooooth like a smoothie, and still it punches through, just in the right places in the mix.

I use this mastering chain in this order: Kazrog True Iron, True 252, Avalon 747 (only the eq), Kiive Audio's Nfuse, Neve MBT settings (only the saturator and the stereo spread modules and finally the multiband compressor and limiter of the TC Electronic system 6000 MD4. Kazrog's productline is a real blessing!

True Indeed

I wasn't sure whether to buy yet another EQ but I’ve purchased many Kazrog products and finally decided to demo it. Within minutes I bought it. I think this is a fanatic sounding EQ and I’ve fallen in love with it. Excellent
