FabFilter releases Pro-Q 2 equalizer plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

FabFilter has released Pro-Q 2, an updated version of its equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2
New features — such as Full Screen mode, unique Natural Phase processing, Auto Gain, Spectrum Grab, Gain-Q interaction, and slope support for all filter types — make Pro-Q 2 a cut above its predecessor in every way, while staying true to the original vision of combining high sound quality with unsurpassed interface workflow.

Completely redesigned EQ engine

For Pro-Q 2, FabFilter has completely redesigned the internal filter engine from the ground up — not only improving the existing Zero Latency and Linear Phase processing modes, but also introducing a unique Natural Phase mode. Besides perfectly matching the magnitude response of analog EQ’ing, Natural Phase also closely matches the analog phase response, without introducing noticeable pre-ring or a long latency. Last but not least, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is more than twice as CPU-efficient as its predecessor.

Universal filter slope support

Very steep filter slopes of up to 96 dB/octave are now available, and, uniquely, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 lets users change the slope of any filter type — not just the usual Low/High Cut filters. This makes it possible to create super-narrow bell filters, very steep or gently sloping shelves, and more. In addition to the existing Bell, Low/High Shelf, Low/High Cut, and Notch filters, Pro-Q 2 also features new Band-Pass and Tilt Shelf filter types.

More interface innovations

Furthermore, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is boosted by an abundance of user interface innovations. Spectrum Grab enables users to directly adjust peaks in the real-time spectrum analyzer display. Pro-Q 2 offers flexible interface resizing, in addition to a Full Screen mode that makes it easier than ever to do ultra-precise adjustments. EQ Match lets users match the spectrum of another track in just a few seconds. All this power is neatly integrated into a gorgeous, uncluttered interface that lets users focus freely on music and workflow.

Original and trailblazing

Of course, Pro-Q 2 features everything that was great about the original Pro-Q — up to 24 EQ bands, innovative interface with unsurpassed workflow and multi-band selection, per-channel EQ’ing in L/R or M/S mode, real-time spectrum analyzer, intelligent solo mode, double-click text entry, stereo/mono plug-ins, Pro Tools hardware surface support — as well as all the trailblazing FabFilter bells and whistles that users have come to expect and love — perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, GPU-powered graphics acceleration, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample-accurate automation, advanced optimization, and more.

New in Pro-Q 2

  • Different interface sizes and additional Full Screen mode.
  • Operates in zero latency mode, linear phase mode with adjustable latency or the unique Natural Phase mode.
  • Spectrum Grab: just grab and adjust a peak in the real-time spectrum analyzer right away!.
  • Filter shapes: Bell, Notch, High/Low Shelf, High/Low Cut, Band Pass, Tilt Shelf.
  • Universal filter slope support for all filter types, up to 96 dB/oct.
  • EQ Match feature to automatically match the spectrum of another track via the side-chain input.
  • Phase Invert option to change polarity.
  • Highly improved CPU optimization: Pro-Q 2 uses less memory and is more than twice as efficient as its predecessor!.
  • Optional Gain-Q interaction.
  • Auto Gain and Gain Scale.
  • Built-in spectrum analyzer with Pre-EQ, Post-EQ and SC modes, adjustable range, speed, resolution, tilt and freeze.
  • Optional piano roll display to quantize EQ frequencies to musical notes.
  • Large output level meter with peak level readout.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for 149 EUR/$199 USD/£124 GBP. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-Q 2 and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. Existing FabFilter customers can purchase or upgrade to Pro-Q 2 with a discount from their online user accounts.

FabFilter 10th Anniversary Sale – 40% off all plugins

FabFilter has announced a limited time sale in celebration of its 10th anniversary, offering 40% off its plug-ins and bundles.

The company is proud to toast this occasion by announcing a generous ten-day sale, with a discount of 40% off all bundles and plug-ins, from April 14 to 24. In addition, FabFilter will make a charitable donation to Stichting MEMO, a local organization bringing children in their early years in contact with young professional musicians and their passion for making music.

Ten years ago, FabFilter released its first plug-in, FabFilter One, a basic but powerful synthesizer, promising exceptional sound quality and an eye for detail in both audio processing and design. That promise still holds true today, and the dedication to superb signal processing and well-designed, modern user interfaces and workflow remains undiminished.

FabFilter One and its Volcano followup ultimately led to the Creative plug-in range, with FabFilter Saturn being the latest addition. Renowned for their unique drag-and-drop modulation system and smart interface design showing only the components that are actually being used, all Creative plug-ins positively succeed in balancing a huge range of inspiring possibilities with enviable ease of use.

With the release of the high-quality compressor plug-in Pro-C in 2007, FabFilter laid the foundations for the ongoing Pro series, highly regarded for their high-quality transparent sound, beautiful interfaces, and well-thought-through workflow. Co-founder Frederik Slijkerman: “FabFilter Pro-Q, our EQ plug-in, is one of our absolute bestsellers and still one of the best examples of what FabFilter is all about: beautiful sound, fantastic workflow! We were really able to realize our vision of power converging with simplicity and elegance.”

Coming full circle, fellow FabFilter co-founder Floris Klinkert claims, “FabFilter Pro-MB is really a result of the 10 years we’ve now been working on audio plug-ins. It combines advanced dynamics algorithms with a forward-thinking, modern interface, rethinking the concept of multi-band processing.”

The sale ends April 24th, 2014.

Newpool Music launches Hiding Jekyll Lable Tennis Remix Contest

Hiding Jekyll Lable Tennis Remix Contest

Newpool Music has announced its Lable Tennis Remix Contest, a chance to remix a track by Hiding Jekyll and win prizes from Ohmforce, Sonic Charge, Fabfilter and XILS-Lab.

Hiding Jekyll’s open minded journey through different electronic styles along with his continuous testing of various live setups finally matured to become a real trademark sound. His aspiration to organize the material in a way that makes it possible to constantly manipulate his tracks, thus comprising both a unique studio and live performance which sometimes can’t be repeated another time, is his strife for authenticity. This is the core of Hiding Jekyll, a name which is synonymous with his activities as a producer and live unit.

With his single Lable Tennis, out in spring 2014, we want to give you the opportunity to create a remix of this minimalistic beauty. You’ll be able to win some valuable prizes from Sonic Charge, Ohm Force, Fabfilter and XILS-Lab. Just be sure to read the instructions and follow our terms and conditions. We wish you good luck and a lot of fun.

The submission phase begins January 27th, 2014 and ends February 27th, 2014 at 23:59 UTC. The decision phase begins February 28th and ends March 3rd. The winners will be announced soon after.
