Neo Harmonic opens a new direction for EQ. With its custom shaped filter response curve (based on several years of research), Neo Harmonic can bring new sounds to user's projects.
There's an EQ theory called "Yin and Yang" which says that adjusting one band will automatically influence the others. Neo Harmonic takes this theory to a new level by not only boosting/cutting the selected frequency, but also exciting the harmonic partials of that frequency, extending changes throughout the whole audible frequency band. The result is a unique sound which traditional parametric EQs would be hard pressed to achieve. Neo Harmonic will give its users a fuller sound, with more detail and clarity than is possible with a traditional parametric EQ.
Sound Magic's research also shows that for each recorded track there exists a harmonic shape that can really make your track shine. Sound Magic has provided several of these universal curves that can handle many common sounds on "everyday" sorts of tracks. Understanding that all music is unique, there is also a special draw mode which allows users to draw their own custom harmonic curves by simply using the mouse. Drawing curves that bring out the best in music is easy with this feature. This aspect of Neo Harmonic not only provides far more sound possibilities than traditional parametric EQ, it also makes it much easier to use.
Another key feature Neo Harmonic provides is its ability to emulate the sound style of vintage EQ units, such as SSL and so on. Utilizing the Sound Magic Award Winning Modeling Technology, Neo Harmonic is almost a sampler for vintage EQ. It embodies several algorithms that can "sample" traditional EQs allowing for easy future expansion.
Neo Harmonic can be used as either an EQ unit or an Exciter. In Mixing users can use different vintage EQ settings to achieve different styles of sound. Thicker, stronger and more powerful sounds are available when they are using the SSL style, and they can readily switch to a clearer and more transparent sound by dialing up other vintage units.
During a recording session, Neo Harmonic will help its users better control the sound of their recordings. For vocal and guitar sounds, Neo Harmonic can process both the basic frequencies and their harmonic partials which is difficult (or impossible!) to do with other EQ units. With Neo Harmonic, users can achieve a special, unique style of sound timbre for both the vocal or the guitar. And the low CPU load and fast response times make Neo Harmonic great for live recording. Neo Harmonic is provided as a Windows VST or Add-on for Supreme Piano 2.
