Equalize from Acon Digital is a parametric equalizer plug-in that allows for freely adjusting not only center frequency, gain and bandwidth, but also the filter slope of each band, anywhere from 3 dB to 120 dB per octave. The EQ features three different filter modes: minimum phase, linear phase, or mixed phase. In minimum phase mode the plug-in operates with zero latency, whereas linear phase mode preserves the phase relationships but adds latency. The mixed phase mode allows for setting a range of latency from 5 to 120 milliseconds while preserving the phase relationships as far as possible to control potential pre-ringing artifacts, a common problem with linear phase filtering.
Frequency response, including bandwidth and filter slopes can be adjusted using virtual handles. A real-time analyzer monitors every aspect of the processing, with easy switching between full, mid, side, left or right channel processing for each band. The software automatically routes the audio signal internally to ensure the best results and lowest possible latency.
