I'm looking for an EQ that shifts all the adjustments based on the lowest note being played. Why don't all paid EQs have this? As the fundamental pitch moves, the EQ affects the overtones differently.

Surfer EQ? Looks like it can both track pitch of incoming audio and respond to MIDI notes.

In logic you can set up modifier. Use midi note as source and EQ frequency as target.
Wouldn’t use it tho, unnecessary

Which DAW? Many can do that natively, e.g. Bitwig or Logic.

Always keep forgetting about that Apusoft, need to check that one out at some time. Looks pretty interesting & appealing.

I use it a lot - very simple to use as a creative eq

Good to know, thank you. They also seem to have some other interesting stuff on their site.

Besides the ones mentioned, Rob Papens EQ does some crazy modulating madness.
