Quartet DynPEQ (Native only)

"A twist on EQ and multiband compression that could change the way you imagine your everyday processing setup."
–Darwin Grosse, review in Recording Magazine, June 2017.

This multi-channel capable plugin contains four DynPEQ bands, each band a traditional parametric filter with a dynamics curve controlling additional boost/cut, feeding an analog peak limiter to catch high crest factor overloads.

• Multichannel processing to preserve spatial balance, as opposed to multi-mono
• Bands can be traditional static parametric, broadband dynamics, or DynPEQ
• Dynamics applied to parametric filter--no fixed bands or crossover frequencies
• Time-domain dynamics and filtering for a speedy response
• Total RMS sidechain measurement for smooth and robust modulation
• Sidechain search for fast and accurate parametric band finding
• Wholegrain design of dynamics for transparent results
• Overload counters for gauging frequency and severity
• Band toolchest library pre-loaded with starting points and ensemble configurations
• A/B registers and audition controls, supplemented with session registers for switching via automation
• License and installation package includes Trio DynPEQ
• Includes Pro Tools stereo plugin for conversion from L/R to M/S (sum/difference) and back.

"Wholegrain's DynPEQ algorithm is unparalleled in its field. The speed and musicality of its processing made me recognize that this is a tool I cannot work without. The DynPEQ plugins are as lightning fast as they are smooth and artifact free–to say nothing of the fact that Quartet embodies the best brick wall limiter I have ever used! A game changer for sure."
—Nathaniel Kunkel, award-winning producer and engineer, Studio Without Walls.

Whole-grain's Quartet (including Trio) DynPEQ is one the very best tools I've found in years.

Despite its GUI, which has yet to be of great improvement, it's a mind-blowing tool for dynamic equalization. Unbelievable! It probably has the fastest attack I've ever seen until now in a frequency-dependent digital circuit. It's very accurate and precise tool. But I need to say it's not for newbies yet (that would be GUI-dependent). It's learning curve requires quite a bit of knowledge, time and effort.

The guy who created it, Duane, is a very pleasing and helpful person (besides kind of a genius, of course). if you go to one of his seminars, it becomes clear that this is a tool made with love and passion in such a way it cannot go wrong.

This could very well be the best sounding dynamic eq on the market. While some other plugins feature a flashier GUI, just judging the sound, Quartet has fantastic filters which do not sound cold or sterile but natural and smooth, and the dynamic function can work in an undetectable way which leaves the impression that no work is being done, while switching to bypass shows a massive difference. Limiter is also fantastic and more than just an addition. Highly recommended.
