thank you for your intensive review and constructive feedback (as usual

So far in the vst, the analyser is the main problem. It basically doesn't move, even in real time mode. It's unlike any other EQ analyser I have seen.
The cpu usage seems perfect in any mode, 1% - in the vst
The second problem with both the vst and AU is that when moving dots it "tears" and makes horrible "zipper" noise..
The AU continues to be majorly problematic in other areas.
Just now i turned it to linear phase mode, and all it did was start making "gurgles".Sound all distorted.
Then, POOF - crash.
Hm, AU runs perfect on our machines, no crashes (OSX 10.9, Logic 10.7)
It is correct that in Logic you get "zippernoise" in non IIR modes, if Logic buffer size is small (e.g. 32/64 smp).
It happens also with others plugins using convolution engines. But we already have ideas how to avoid this.
The latency reporting is broken in the AU. I put it in low latency mode, it has the 41ms latency. I put it back into zero latency mode, it doesn't adjust. The vst on the other hand is fine.
Well, yes we noticed a problem there, we will fix this.
Also, please make it possible to alter the Q (width) of the solo mode.
The narrow-band sweeping mode was designed as a quick tool, wo big configuration. If you need a more sophisticated sweeping filter, you could use one of the regular filter configured as band pass (gEQ12 has plenty of them)
Also, is there an auto gain? I can't find it.
We left out AutoGain by intention. We working one a separate product doing auto gain staging and level matching.
Plenty of filter choices, selectable filters per band, solo mode, good sound, etc. Again, it gets to the point where it's almost more or less exactly like acon Eq which is a bit less money, except acon has more control over the shape. Otherwise the EQ's are exactly the same. People will make their choice to buy yours if they prefer the gui, or vice versa.
I think it is time someone did something a bit out of the ordinary. Time to stand out from the pack. As it stands, i am happy to test your Eq but there is no logical reason to buy it, but sure i am happy to test it for bugs for you. If i hadn't chosen the acon last year, bear in mind, yours would have been a very strong contender for me once the bugs were fixed.
This is a quite fair comment. Fancy filter types, linear phase, oversampling, not really rocket since, but must have's. What stands really out in gEQ12 is the interactive EQ and spectrum display. Maybe you have time to watch the video
While you are EQing, you want to get most possible information to work.
... Add a spectrum grab like proQ2. Add a matchEQ ...
We offer Euphonia
for this tasks, from our point of view far beyond EQ matching.
