Waves Audio has launched a new surgical dynamic equalizer with 6 floating, fully-adjustable parametric filter bands. The F6 Floating-Band Dynamic EQ offers advanced EQ and compression/expansion controls per band, mid-side processing options and more.
The ultimate problem-solving EQ, F6 can be used for diverse equalization, compression, expansion and de-essing processes, whether you’re mixing or mastering, in the studio or live. Each of the six floating bands features advanced EQ and dynamic controls that let you zero in on any problem spot – and treat it only when the problem arises.
Rather than treating a frequency one time and leaving it there for the entire track, F6’s EQ settings are sensitive to the dynamics of your track. This way you can select not only by how much, but also precisely when a specific frequency will be boosted or cut, compressed or expanded.
Take vocals for example: A singer’s tone changes throughout a performance depending on their position to the microphone. An EQ setting that works well when the singer is close to the mic and singing softly will not be as effective when the singer backs up and starts belting. F6 moves in time with the singer, kicking in when the vocal level crosses a certain threshold that you’ve set – and laying off when it falls below that threshold.
With the F6, you can EQ more precisely, with filters that can be as narrow or as wide as you like, free-floating bands that can overlap, variable EQ shapes, and threshold-sensitive EQ settings. F6 is ideal for isolating specific problems on individual tracks and fixing them transparently only when they pop out. The plugin’s advanced mid-side processing capabilities give you even greater ability to carve out EQ space in a busy mix, so you can breathe more life into your mixes.
Music is dynamic. The intensity of any piece of music constantly rises and falls. With the F6 dynamic EQ plugin, you finally have the perfect EQ tool to match this dynamic variation.
