Precision Equalizer is a stereo or dual mono four-band Equalizer and high-pass filter made primarily for use with program material.
The Precision Equalizer is modeled on the behavior of real-world analog mastering filters, and uses the classic parametric controls arrangement. Both channels of the Precision Equalizer feature four bands of filtering grouped in two overlapping pairs: Two for low frequencies, two for high frequencies. A +/- 8 dB shelving or peak/notch filter is available for each band with five peak/notch responses per band. Each band can be enabled/disabled for auditioning and DSP savings.
The Precision Equalizer features .5 dB stepped gain controls and stepped frequency controls traditionally found on hardware mastering EQs for repeatability. The high-pass filter is a far-reaching 18 dB per octave. The Precision Equalizer offers flexibility thru auditioning two separate A and B EQ configurations with the Stereo cycle button, while the Dual button allows the Precision Equalizer to function in dual mono, when disparate channel adjustments are necessary. In stereo mode, the left and right controls are linked – moving a knob on either channel will cause the corresponding channel to move. Stereo EQ configurations can be transferred from A to B, or B to A using parameter Copy buttons.
- Based on analog mastering EQ filters and classic control arrangements.
- Upsamples to 192kHz for the most exacting sonic accuracy.
- Two sets of two frequency ranges per channel.
- 18 dB per octave high-pass filter aides in sub-harmonic management.
- Flexible Stereo/Dual configuration with A/B auditioning.
A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized.
