    A simple question.

    The Parametric EQ plugin, regarding the
    Q value in the sweepable mids, I can hear
    the bigger sweep it takes as you lower the
    value of Q but would like and can't seem to
    find any info in the help file of what exactly those size those sweeps are at different values. I'd like having a mental
    picture to go along with what I hear.

    Thanks and good day.

    Traditionally, the Q is the width of the band. It is a bell shaped curve, with the selected frequency as the center. You can make the Q narrow and effect only the selected frequency or widen the Q and effect a broader range. This would explain why you can hear it more at wide settings.

    I hope that helps!
