H-EQ (Native) from Waves is a hybrid equalizer plug-in featuring vintage and modern EQ inspired by the EQ sections found on the finest British and American analog consoles. Each of the seven bands can function with seven different filter types per band, including a newly-developed, asymmetrical bell filter.

The plug-in allows for applying different EQ settings to the Mid and Side content of MS signal, and a flexible real-time frequency spectrum analyzer with multiple display options helps visually reinforce the EQ processing. An intuitive keyboard graphic provides the ability to choose center frequencies by clicking on its virtual keys.
