FabFilter Releases Pro-Q Plug-In
FabFilter has released Pro-Q, a new EQ plug-in for Mac and PC that claims to provide clean and accurate sound and a never-before-seen feature set.
With Pro-Q it’s easy and intuitive to create and edit up to 24 EQ bands with multiple curves. Pro-Q has a zero latency mode, but – unlike so many other EQs – greater transparency and precision is possible with the option to switch to a linear phase mode with adjustable latency. There’s also a built-in, real-time frequency analyzer that gives instant visual feedback of your signal’s frequency content – be it pre- or post-EQ.
With total control of the frequency curve and unparalleled visual feedback relaying instant analysis of the signal processing also comes superb sound quality. Pro-Q’s groundbreaking filter algorithms offer precise analog modeling and unlimited internal headroom. There’s also a mid/side EQ option for the ultimate in sparkle and width for your mixes.
The plug-in also incorporates FabFilter’s clutter free ‘what-you-use-is-what-you-see’ feature so only displays the curves that are in use with their associated controls.
