FabFilter equalizer the Pro-Q 2
An equalizer is the basis of every mix to make sure that you remove unwanted frequencies or boost the right ones. Usually every channel has an equalizer. But which equalizer is good to use?
Every DAW has its own standard equalizer with a different user interface. What is exactly the difference? In our opinion, you will start to notice the difference when you work with an EQ plugin (for example, the PRO-Q 2 by FabFilter or from iZotope) by yourself.
If you want to seriously get into an equalizer the Pro-Q 2 is a good choice. The user interface is really good and you can make very precise adjustments without putting in too much effort. It is important that the workflow is good so you don’t lose too much time tweaking your equalizer in the creative process. You can make 24 EQ-bands, which is a lot for EQ!
Check PluginBoutique for more great features by the Pro-Q 2 like the EQ matching, Dolby Atmos support and solo functions for every EQ band.
‘The best equalizer on the market!’
Reverb is one of the most used effects in the audio world. Reverb can be used in different shapes. The right adjustment of reverb in a mix is incredibly important for a good result.
FabFilter uses visual elements in Pro-R to amplify the user experience. Because of this you know exactly what you are doing, so you can create the sounds that you are looking for!
Instead of splitting the entire spectrum in a traditionally way with crossovers, you can use the Pro-MB to make direct new bands with the frequency range that you want to work on.
The interactive multiband display clearly shows that the rest of the spectrum doesn’t get changed. You can also make a crossover system by linking various bands.
