With five parallel bands, two series bands, and no pre-warping effects, the SONORIS Parallel Equalizer plug-in delivers clean and hard-to-overdo adjustment of frequencies via seven preconfigured minimum-phase bands. Designed for demanding mastering and mixing applications that require finesse and subtle yet effective sonic manipulation, this digital processor provides the ability to work in stereo, split (mono), or mid-side modes with 64-bit internal resolution.

The Parallel Equalizer has constant-Q bell filters on bands 3 to 5, shelving filters for bands 2 and 6, and low-/high-cut filters on bands 1 and 7. The built-in spectrum analyzer and high-resolution meter ensure accurate display of frequency content and levels in real time, and the plug-in's GUI is resizable via draggable handles. Full automation is supported, allowing dynamic or snapshot-style EQ changes. Unlike EQs that are made to be easy for users of all experience levels, the Parallel Equalizer is best in the hands of skilled engineers.

Seven Preconfigured Bands
This minimum phase parametric EQ is suitable for mixing and especially mastering. It has fixed filter types on each band, and bands 2 to 6 are connected in parallel. The filters are built in a feedback/feedforward manner to provide cutting and boosting, like in analog graphic equalizers. Bands 3 to 5 are constant-Q bells, and 2 and 6 are shelves. Bands 1 and 7 are low/high cuts, connected in series with the rest.
Parallel Filter Topology
The main feature is that this EQ is more subtle and needs more work to set up correctly because there is some interaction between the bands. In normal series-connected EQs, the gains of two bands just add up, but in a parallel EQ they don't.

The filters are parallel to each other as well as the unprocessed signal. So, if you have a low-shelf boost and switch on a low-frequency bell boost too, it just doesn't do much more. You can't easily overdo things, but you do have to work harder to get it right. Also, the signal path is cleaner because the filters all work on the same input, and they have correct gain up to Nyquist.

Processing Modes
Besides working in stereo, the Parallel Equalizer can also process audio in mid, side, or split (left or right) modes.
Display
The plug-in has a large graphical display that shows exactly what you get. The size of the plug-in can be changed to your liking by dragging the lower right-hand corner.
