FabFilter Pro-Q

FabFilter has announced the release of Pro-Q, a top-quality precision EQ plug-in with both zero-latency and linear phase modes, up to 24 bands and an intuitive interface for effortless and precise editing.

FabFilter’s software instruments and effects have won the company many awards and fans across the globe thanks to their simple philosophy – to develop plug-ins that sound every bit as good as they look. The Pro-Q precision EQ is no exception, combining a clean and accurate sound and a never-before-seen feature set that has none of the sacrifices you normally have to make when choosing an EQ. And with all of this power crammed behind a great looking interface, Pro-Q could easily become your ‘go to’ plug-in for every EQ application – be it musical, surgical or creative.
