Software Universal audio - Millennia NSEQ-2 Plug-in for UAD platform & Apollo audio interfaces



A mainstay in many of the world's leading studios and mastering houses, the Millennia NSEQ-2 Parametric EQ is revered for its startling realism and transparent musicality. UAD direct developer Brainworx has now put this high-end EQ at your fingertips with the Millennia NSEQ-2 Plug-In for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo Audio Interfaces.

By perfectly emulating Millennia's exclusive Twin Topology circuit and pure Class A transformerless circuitry, the Millennia NSEQ-2 plug-in offers a less-is-more approach to the audio chain, yielding a powerful, sonically neutral, analog EQ that brims with spectacular clarity. With the ability to switch between an all-triode 300-volt vacuum tube signal path, and an all-discrete JFET solid-state signal path, you're afforded two distinctly different EQs, each with colossal amounts of headroom and an array of sonic flavors and colors.


Available for purchase via UA's Online Store for $299, the Millennia NSEQ-2 plug-in is part of the new UAD Software v7.1— which also includes the Pultec Passive EQ Collection and new Flex Routing for the Apollo Audio Interface.


Millennia Features & Specs
  • Faithful model of the legendary Millennia NSEQ-2 Class A Twin Topology (Vacuum Tube and Discrete Solid State) Parametric Equalizer
  • Switch between tube and solid state topologies for a dazzling array of EQ textures
  • Sculpt and shape with new features such as M/S (mid/side) mode, Link mode, and an Output Trim control
  • Enhance your tracks with four EQ bands: 20 Hz to 20 kHz center frequency, 0.4 to 4.0 Q
  • 32 factory presets
  • Developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform by Brainworx
  • Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide

Yup, I'm sure the plugin sound great, but the audio demos sound way too bad.

In these difficult times it's really not good enough to put out rank demo examples is it?
One listen and i thought...''naa..not going there right now'

The demos should be night and day and make me go
''golly gosh...yes please!''

I am shocked!
I mean...offensive top end on the High HAT example or what!
and what happened to the guitar?
all hear now are the slaps and the guitar tone is gone??

come on guys!!!

So, I wonder if Brainworx will bring a version out via TDM/Native/AAX?

Be interesting.

Tried Millenia and Pultec emus. Pultec IMHO sounds very nice, Millennia on the other hand really sounds bad.

Millenia is listed under plugin alliance so i'd assume this is coded by brainworx not UA

Ok, let me get this out of the way. I've never heard the original and I haven't heard any demos. I just started the trial and the first thing I tried it on (heavy rock track) was a no go. Didn't do what I needed and just plain didn't work. I then tried it on a completely acoustic mix and in a word, beautiful. Airy top defined mids without being harsh in any way and a nice round bottom end. The topology changes are very nice sounding. I am going to wait until it's on special but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get this eventually.

Ok, just heard the demos, they suck. I think that UAD and Brainworx did a great disservice to their product, shame really

Yeah it's like they wanted to prove it could do extreme stuff rather than show you its normal uses. I feel like most UA sound demos do a disservice.

Personally I think this is really nice
the demo does NOT do it justice at all, I definitely suggest you grab the trial and check it out, it can be very subtle but it a really musical sweet way, the J-fet and Tube switch defo apply some nice alternative channel sounds!
I'm very excited by plugins these days!!

Is this not the best plugin Brainworx has been involved in to date?
seems to me they derived a great amount of pleasure and pride in it's presentation and sound!

Give it some time, it may grow on you. I am certain 10 minute demo is not enough

Never judge by the video demos, guys. UA videos are terrible. Try the plugins in your own environment. It's like watching a car commercial rather than test driving the thing in person.

And when you test drive you've got to go further than down the block beyond40 MPH.

anyone knows whether these Brainworx-coded plug-ins are exclusive to UAD or is there any chance we'll get them under the Plugin Alliance brand?

Near as I can tell the Millenia and the Shadow Hills are UAD only.
