MathAudio has released version 1.1.0 of Guitar EQ, an equalizer plugin that helps to detect and compensate for the unwanted resonances in classical and acoustic guitars.

MathAudio Guitar EQ

The body of classical and acoustic guitars is an acousto-mechanical resonator that amplifies sound generated by strings by means of multiple resonances. Ideally, these resonances should be uniformly distributed along the frequency range and have similar gains. In reality, however, some of these resonances usually have larger gains.

Our experiments have shown that one or a few strong resonances can destroy the guitar sound because of the so-called “masking effect”. We’ve also found out that the digital correction of the largest guitar resonances can substantially improve the quality of the guitar recordings.

The MathAudio Guitar EQ plug-in helps you to detect and compensate for the unwanted guitar resonances. It also allows you to fine-tune the volume and the timbre of every note on your guitar.

Changes in Guitar EQ v1.1.0

  • Change the volume and the timbre of every note.
  • New “Undo” and “Redo” buttons help to fine-tune the target curve and use it with different microphones and pickups.
  • New “Load target curve” button helps to maintain a consistent quality of the sound in different environments (e.g. at home and at studio) by means of loading the same target curve.

Guitar EQ for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) costs $79.95 USD.
