Equalization in sound recording and reproduction is the process of adjusting the volume of different frequency bands within an audio signal.

Eq116 vs. ozone 9 FIR EQ vs. mAAT EQ Orange for Linear Phase Quality

I love the eq116 Linear phase mode filters but I did some research I was told that "Maat EQ Due to the double IIR Filter the lowcut becomes a Linkwitz-Riley Filter. For me and many others it’s the king of the surgical filters and it can really work miracles." really have this degree difference between eq116 and maat eq orange or Ozone 9 digital (surgicel FIR eq) ? Ozone 9 also has very clean FIR filters and the CPU uses it very well and is affordable, or eq 116 linear phase eq is very clean transparent and does not tire the CPU too much.
but matt orange eq $ 1000 is really that good
there really is a quality difference like what to give this money (mAAt Orange EQ 1000$)

Samplitude Eq116 High Freq (High SelF) octav question

i use eq116 for mastering.
there are two types of high shelf mode 6db oct and 12db oct for high self. but
the senses are different.
Which one do you usually prefer? 6db oct or 12db oct for High Freq Shelf Eq ? (eq116)

every music is different ok but, I'm really curious about the overall approach

Samplitude/Sequoia EQ116 Best Digital EQ ?

I use Logic for sound design and MIDI many years but, I use Samplitude/Sequoia for Mix and Mastering. there is something that caught my attention about Eq quality. eq116 this eq is the cleanest eq I've ever heard.

I compared it with many eqs with EQ116. i think The eq116 is the cleanest eq I ever heard. but i tried Dmg audio or uad cambridge or uad massenburg eq, and others..
Do you have a more transparent eq plugin than eq 116 ? ist it best ? or
Which is more transparent compared to
Algorithmix EQ blue or orange,
UAD cambridge
UAD Massenburg
Brainworx Eq V3
DMG Audio Equality
or ?

because, when I try eq116 high shelf or HPF cut, I'm in love with eq116 again, everything is clear as cristal is heard with this eq. I wonder about your things.

Samplitude - Parametric EQ vs. EQ116

I have a lot of old projects made in Samplitude Pro X, which has its default Parametric EQ.

Whenever I open these old projects in Samplitude Pro X3, the standardized EQ in the objects is still the old Parametric and not the current EQ116. :confused:

Is there a way to convert Parametric to EQ116, when I right click on the EQ buttons in these projects? :unsure:

Printing compression and EQ while tracking ITB

Hi guys and girls,
Hope you're having a good week.
I think this is a pretty straightforward question.
I can understand that you would want to track a sweet sounding outboard compressor on a vocal or acoustic guitar, or get a more focused sound with an outboard EQ coming in.
The thing is, would you do this with plugins?
Would there be any advantage to setting up plugins and printing them into the recording on the way in, as opposed to just using them later on the recorded sound?
I can see how this might me good to tame transients on a bass for instance, but does it affect sound quality in a positive way as well?
Having said all that, do you ever set up plugins that way (when you're taking a break from the outboard gear)?

Freq Analysis with Note Names

Hey there!
I'm doing some alternate tunings using my DAW's built in pitch shifter which works in cents. I'd like to get a plugin that tells me the exact frequency of a single isolated pitch. Ideally, the plugin would tell me what note the pitch is close to. I found an Android app called Frequency Analyser Pro which shows me note names and it's incredibly helpful, but it's been a little inelegant holding my phone up to my headphones. I'm hoping there's a plugin I can insert into a given track. Any ideas? Any ideas generally on cool tools to help me with custom tunings and related math stuff? Thanks much for your time!

EQ & compression

Hello, new to the forum and I seek wisdom and prosperity.

I'm thinking about the way to mix e.g. a guitar.

First you filter out frequencies, then at some stage you compress.

My thought about this (I may not have understood compression completely yet) is that when i EQ out some Hz, but then add a compressor, won't that compressor boost the Hz i didnt want to some extent?

How would it affect the sound if I were to switch it around. First compression, then filter and EQ?

Please, enlighten me!
