Code Red Free is an excellent console EQ emulation, inspired by the legendary Abbey Road REDD mixing consoles. The plugin was created by Shattered Glass Audio, the same team of developers who made the outstanding SGA1566 tube preamp which ranked at #4 in our last year’s list (and which is still, in our opinion, the best freeware tube amplifier effect out there).
Packing tons of analog-like mojo under the hood, Code Red Free is yet another brilliant piece of freeware by SGA, equally useful for mixing and post production tasks. It can be used for subtly enhancing the output of multiple mixer channels, leading to a nicely saturated mix. Or, you can simply add it to your master channel and use Code Red Free to tighten up the sound and warm it up a bit.
