Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

The Kush Electra DSP is a 4-band EQ plug-in that lets you redefine how the transients and harmonic components of your signal interfuse. This Electrified Transient Equalizer employs a multi-topology design to give you new creative options in defining how your sounds interlock, move air, and even affect the emotions of your listeners. With two sweepable Proportional-Q bands, plus high and low shelving, Electra DSP delivers punchy lows; creamy, detailed midrange; and analog highs. Re-imagine what can be done with an equalizer with the Kush Electra DSP.

Kush Electra DSP EQ at a Glance:
  • Sculpt your mids
  • Tighten up the low end
  • Breathe life into your highs
Sculpt your mids

The Kush Electra DSP's two fully sweepable Proportional-Q midbands let you push hard or dig deep without sounding stressed or unmusical. The more you boost or cut, the narrower the filters get - which makes them gentle at low gain and quite powerful at high gain. Their adaptive shape is always highly musical, letting you add incisive thwack to a snare, brighten a vocal without losing warmth, or even totally rebalance the elements of a drum loop as if you had level controls over the various components.

Tighten up the low end

Kush gave the Electra DSP a fixed low shelf and a continuously variable (25-400Hz) 12dB/octave highpass filter that play especially nice together. The HPF exhibits just a taste of bite on the corner, which makes it lovely for cleaning up muddiness in your tracks. Combined, the shelf and HPF let you reshape and tighten up even the most obnoxious low end.

Breathe life into your highs

Kush fitted the Electra DSP with a fully sweepable (3.8-20k) high shelf that reminds us of the coveted vintage mastering EQs of yesteryear. This shelf breathes life into your sound and adds the type of shimmer that seems so elusive when using plugins. There's nothing quite like the Kush Electra DSP, which may be why it's Kush Audio's best selling design. So if you're needing that clear and airy top-end, and you do, you need the Kush Audio Electra DSP EQ plug-in.

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

The Electra is the tightest, punchiest EQ I've come across. Whether cutting or boosting, it lets me alter the tonal structure of any source in a way that is extremely noticeable and pleasing. When I'm working on carving a track into a mix, this is the EQ I turn to.
