Postby docdued; Sun Jul 09, 2006 11:33 am Free 10-band parametric EQ from ddmf

Hi everybody,

complementary to the LP10, which is a linear phase EQ for mixdown/mastering purposes, the IIEQ is a minimum-phase 10 band parametric EQ for VST under Windows. The goal was to design a track EQ that can be used in many instances while offering more control than the usual EQs that come with DAWs. It is available for free at http://www.ddmf.eu. Any feedback is, of course, much appreciated :D !

Enjoy (hopefully), docdued

Good work, thanks for this!

I have a few requests though:

- Linear knob movement please! I hate circular ones..
- Ability to type in Freq, Gain & Q values directly.
- Individual bypass for each band.

Also I spotted a typo on your web page: I think the line "plus 8 shelving bands with variable gain, center frequency and Q" should read "plus 8 peaking bands with variable gain, center frequency and Q"

:)

Also, the level meter scale seems a little arbitrary: a 0dBFS test tone reads as if there is still lots of headroom..

I like what I hear though, and I really like the fact that there is no poncy graphic curve display; it forces you to use your ears!

Thanks for your suggestions! I will try to implement them asap. Concerning the level meter: I have constructed it such that 0 dB corresponds to 75 percent on the scale; thus in principle everything works as expected. I should draw a line or something at 75 percent to make it more clear that this is the 0 dB limit though.

I have some addiction, I download almost all DLL's, even if I'm sure I don't need them...

Anyways, I have no need for your EQ, so perhaphs you can just forget my remarks; in Logic for PC (old software, so not a big problem for you) the EQ pumps on the attack of incoming audio, like a compressor, or some-one speaking too loud in the mic.
It's a cool effect, but perhaps not intentionally created?
Bug or feauture?
Who knows :)

No keeper for me though, but that's more because I have recently thrown away hundreds of DLL's / VST's to finally start making music instead of downloading all this free plugins...

That's not intended :( . I really have no idea at the moment how this can happen, and with Logic for PC no longer available it's gonna be difficult to find out...

Seems a little buggy in Cubase SX3, and similar in Wavelab. Sometimes the knobs stop making changes to the sound, i.e. they move but the sound is not affected. Also I get some pops when inserting the plugin.

Finally, the frequency values stated do not seem accurate, the 16 khz cut / boost seems to actually be at 20 khz ... am I incorrect ? I can reproduce the sound of the GEQ for the most part, but the frequency values do not agree :)

Really nice EQ, but got the same bug here that soundpalace wrote about - sometimes knobs stop making changes to the sound :(
