Key Features

  • Inspired by the classic 1073 Equalizer.
  • Three bands, HP filter, gain and output controls.
  • Each EQ band can be bypassed.
  • Warm, open and analog sound.
  • Analog style modelled saturation: LINE and MIC.
  • Supported platforms: VST 2.4, VST 3.0, AU, AAX, and RTAS.
  • Zero latency for realtime usage.
  • Sample rates up to 192 khz supported.
  • Carefully optimized for low CPU usage.

Saturation

  • LINE Saturation (introduced by turning the red knob to the right side) is a subtle saturation – ideal for adding just a bit of color to your tracks.
  • MIC Saturation (imparted by turning the red knob to the left side) lends more color. Mic saturation can be very aggressive at high values. If you want add a moderate amount of color/warmth to your track, use low values (from 10 to 20). If you want to introduce more apparent saturation, use values from 20 to 40. Values higher than 40 will push the saturation effect into overdrive – great for warm and crunchy vocals, organ/keys, drums overheads, rooms, bass, or any virtual instrument.

Burnley 73 can be used exclusively as a saturation plugin by bypassing the equalizer (by clicking the EQ IN button so that it appears grey). For a warm/analog sounding mix, experiment with using Burnley 73’s MIC or LINE saturation on multiple tracks and/or on your mix buses.

Computer Music Review (5 of 5 stars):

“Everyone should have a 1073 emulation in their arsenal, and when you can get one this good for the same price as a night out, there’s absolutely no reason not to.”

In depth

EQ Bands

  • High Pass: high pass filter with five frequency positions: OFF, 50hz, 80hz, 160hz and 300hz.
  • Low Shelf: low band control with four selectable frequencies: 35hz, 60hz, 110hz and 220hz.
  • Mids: bell style filter with six selectable frequencies: 300hz, 700hz, 1.6khz, 3.2khz, 4.8khz and 7.2khz.
  • High Shelv: fixed high shelf filter for high frequency control.

Gain & Output

  • Gain: The red knob controls the saturation level with two types of saturation: LINE and MIC.
    The right portion of the knob’s circumference controls the LINE saturation, which imparts a very subtle effect. >The left portion of the knob’s circumference governs the MIC saturation, which is warmer and can be aggressive when set to high values.
  • Output: Controls the output volume.

    The EQ sounds great, but I don’t use the drive since I have a hardware preamp with the Neve sound (Heritage 73jr). Recommended for nice 73 style EQ.

    I always buy new fancy eq plugins … but somehow I always return to Sonimus Burnley 73 on most of the tracks. It’s such a musical eq and with nice saturation in the preamp section. Combined with Kush AR1 compressor and the Fabfilter EQ3 these tre plugins make an great Channel strip in my DAW.

  12. Ahmed Alian (verified owner)

    This is the best 1073 emulation iv ever heard. This doesnt just add harmonics — im not sure what is happening under the hood. What i do 100 percent know is that putting this on all my channels and dialing in the correct amount of drive … priceless sound. I will not be using the buzzwords, but i will be recommending the Burnley 73 to anyone who wants “that sound” and dont let the price make you think otherwise. Cheers x

    Really sounds nice. Easy to work with. You can actually hear a difference in the sound when the knobs are turned.

    (mostly anyway as Audio is very fragile) i also use Burnley 73 with small amounts only, but that small treatment at the right spot makes all the difference

  17. Brian Goodworth (verified owner)

  18. FACUNDO (verified owner)

    Burnley 73 is perfect tool ; transparent magic, like water make pebble s’tones. Sorry for this poetry in this hours : ) Jahn Neu

  20. Lee (verified owner)

    I first tried out the SonEQ Free, what a great eq and to be free, outstanding!
    I purchased the Burnley 73 and the greatness continues.
    I use this plugin on almost every project I work on now, plus the emulation quality is possibly the best in comparison to other brand versions.

  21. José Antonio Delgado Millán (verified owner)

    Magnífico!!!!

  22. samy cisternas (verified owner)

  23. Aidan L. (verified owner)

    This is for sure my favourite 1073 emulation that I’ve heard. Love the saturation options and the tone of this plugin. Highly recommended!

  24. Paul Robinson (verified owner)

    Love the Burnley 73, such a classy sounding plugin, can add so much to a track. (I was born in Burnley, home of AMS Neve).
    The Tuco is just lovely as a master buss compressor, it just sounds ‘right’ I use it on every project.

    Great emulation of the best, I hope they do more compressor plugins, reverbs and tape machines

    This little eq can make a big difference to your sound. Especially on drums but not only. It just makes things sound fuller to me. The saturation knob was well thought out and you can use it as little or aggressive as you like. This is naturally a warm sounding eq and hard to use in harsh way. You have to use your ears here though. This eq is all about using your ear and sound shaping, not for precision. I love it for that. I’m a fan of it!

    For Burnley 73.

    Review by Toby Pearce for onetrackperweek.com

    Working to a strict production schedule of completing one track every week, it’s vital that I have the right tools at my fingertips. The Sonimus plugins are my secret weapons – they bring a touch of analog to my music. The Burnley 73 is perfect compliment to modern EQs, which are often infinitely adjustable. The parameters are pre-adjusted, which makes finding only the most musical frequencies easier and faster. The Saturation knob adds the final magic, and I often use it to add cohesion to my busses. After many years, I wouldn’t be without this tool.
