Description : Parametric Equalizer
Equalizer is perhaps the oldest and most popular of the sound processing tools. From the earliest days, the main function was to correct or strengthen by increasing or decreasing certain frequencies.
Over the course of a century, engineers have developed countless equalizers. Few have become a legend, our thOQorange is one. The most popular version for recording and recording is the parametric equalizer or PEQ, first perfected by Massenburg in 1972. It offers maximum flexibility with just three controls. Used properly, PEQ is a powerful tool and the best friend of every audio engineer in search of the perfect sound. However, how Spidey (and Voltaire) always remind us: “With great power comes great responsibility.” Created by a stupid or cost-limited software engineer, he can become your greatest sonic enemy.
Why develop another parametric equalizer (PEQ) when there are already hundreds on the market? The answer is simple … because there is room for improvement! These were customers of the original LinearPhase PEQ Red and Orange who asked Algorithmix to develop a classic equalizer for recording and mixing tasks with unrivaled clarity and transparency. Over the course of several years, our dock Christoph carefully analyzed many of the best and gathered an extensive knowledge base on the best practices of analog equalizer. Based on this, he realized not one or two, but a whole collection of equalizers. Result? The quintessence of analogous predecessors based on new ideas. We know that you will find your favorite sound.
We wanted to take the analogue to another level, so we developed many respected hardware equalizers, creating idealized digital versions based on this inspiration. Unlike models or simulations that carry analog baggage, SantaCruzEQ has no noise, distortion, or other secondary effects inherited from analog.
SantaCruzEQ12 is the most comprehensive collection of classic EQ architectures ever put together in one package. You will get accurate, idealized examples of the legendary analog equalizer circuitry, complemented by progressive new models. SantaCruzEQ, whether vintage, modern or experimental, is a sound sandbox in which every mixing and mastering engineer can tinker with.
