rs-met has released EasyQ, a new free EQ plug-in for Windows.
EasyQ is an easy-to-use equalizer with an arbitrary number of filter stages in series connection. Each of the filter stages can operate in one of the following modes: peak/cut (aka bell or parametric EQ), high- or low-shelving, notch and low- or high-pass (both with either 6 or 12 dB/oct slope).
EasyQ is easy on the CPU and just does what an EQ is supposed to do without performing any additional voodoo. As such, it is well suited to serve as a go-to EQ for routine equalizing tasks.
EasyQ is free and is available for Windows as a VST effect plug-in.
