Sound Magic releases Neo GraphicEQ effect plugin

Related: , , , Posted in news on Dec 13, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Sound Magic has announced Neo GraphicEQ, an adjustable 16 bands graphic equalizer plugin for Windows.

Sound Magic Neo GraphicEQ

Neo GraphicEQ is a new type of Graphic EQ which enables its users to adjust the specific frequencies they want to modify. Unlike traditional Graphic EQs, Neo GraphicEQ does not use band pass filters to do the job. Instead, it uses a new kind of Linkwitz-Riley Splitter to separate the frequency bands and then process them. This gives you adjustable bands – you pick the frequencies you want to adjust! Because the Linkwitz-Riley Crossover filter tends to have the lowest phase distortion of all filters, Neo GraphicEQ will have a better sound quality than traditional graphic EQs.

Neo GraphicEQ features

  • Internal 64-bit floating point precision.
  • Innovative Linkwitz-Riley Splitter Design.
  • 16 Adjustable Bands.
  • Support up to 32Bit/384KHz resolution.

The plugin is available for Windows (VST) priced at 49 EUR.
