Sound Radix has updated its SurferEQ pitch-tracking equalizer plugin for Windows and Mac to version 2.0.2.

This update adds new features, improves CPU usage and squashes quite a few bugs.

SURFEREQ tracks the pitch of a monophonic instrument or a vocal source and can adapt its bands’ frequencies relative to the music in real-time, maintaining the natural harmonic balance of the sound source and making it possible to shape the source’s timbre relative to the notes being played.
