Waves Audio announces the availability of its new GEQ graphic equalizer plug-in ($200 MSRP, with a special introductory price of $99). Developed primarily for live use, but also useful in the studio, Waves GEQ is a full-featured graphic equalizer plug-in with both Classic and Modern mono and stereo components, featuring 30 ISO bands plus high- and lowpass filters, a high precision floating parametric EQ bell filter, and a real-time analyzer.
GEQ Classic components use traditional proportional Q filters inspired by the renowned DN series 1/3-octave equalizers, which narrow the filter width as you increase a band’s gain.
GEQ Modern components use special Flat-Top filters, which eliminate the artifacts associated with band interaction, and provide perfect plateau and stair-stepped responses. Users can set band gains one-by-one, or draw their curve via touchscreen or mouse.
Finally, GEQ’s integrated real-time analyzer lets users compare the difference between two sources.
