Matthew Lindsay has released NCL EQ, a flexible high-quality 10 band parametric equalizer plug-in.

It’s designed to be clean, precise and to minimise digital artifacts such as frequency warping. Uses include mixing, tracking, and mastering.

NCL EQ features

  • 64 bit internal precision.
  • Oversampling of the high bands.
  • Selectable filter types.
  • AB to quickly compare settings.
  • Adjustable meter ballistics.
  • Key commands for quick editing:
    • – Control left click zeros gain controls.
    • – Holding alt increases knob stiffness.
    • – Holding shift allows fine tuning of the frequency control in steps of 100 Hz.
    • – Holding shift+tab allows fine tuning of frequency in 1 Hz steps.

NCL EQ is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

Note: NCL EQ was made in synthedit, but all the DSP and a large section of the GUI uses custom modules coded in C++
