Phoenixinflight has released 10EQ, a free graphic equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.
10EQ is a VST plugin based on the API 560 Graphic Equalizer. Originally developed in the 60’s, it was used in many API consoles in the 70’s and 80’s.
Just like its hardware counterpart, 10EQ is a very versatile tool and can be used for many mixing and mastering purposes. It features 10 bands of equalization with a special “Proportional Q” design, which automatically narrows or widens the filter bandwidth. The CPU usage of the plugin is very low, so it can be used in large quantities at the same time. 10EQ contains 20 presets, which provide useful starting values for further adjustments.
10EQ Graphic Equalizer features
- 10 EQ bands: 16 kHz/8 kHz/4 kHz/2 kHz/1 kHz/500 Hz/250 Hz/125 Hz/63 Hz/31 Hz.
- Every band has a boost/cut range of 12 dB.
- Instead of constant Q values, the filter bandwidth widens at lower boost/cut levels and narrows at higher settings.
- Low CPU usage.
- 20 presets included.
10EQ is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
