Burnley 73

Sonimus Burnley 73 is inspired by the classic 1073 equalizer. Our new plugin carefully recreates the characteristic sound of each EQ band, and the unique personality of both the 1073's inputs saturation: LINE and MIC.

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.


  • 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.
