Voxengo has announced the release of version 2.0 of HarmoniEQ, a parametric, harmonically-enhanced equalizer plug-in for professional music production applications, available in AudioUnit and VST plug-in formats, for Mac OS X (v.10.4.11 and later) and Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) computers.
Harmonic enhancement HarmoniEQ applies to the sound is an inherent element of its overall sonic quality. HarmoniEQ also features dynamic equalization modes that offer you a vast palette of sound-shaping capabilities, suitable for mastering.
Since the easiness of tuning was one of Voxengo's goals when producing this plug-in, HarmoniEQ features a single control surface to control the equalizer curve. HarmoniEQ's control surface workflow implements Voxengo's best findings in the area of "user-equalizer" interaction. Just drag the filter control points to the right places. You can enable up to 7 filter bands, with the filter type freely-selectable from peaking, low-shelf, high-shelf, low-pass, high-pass and notch filter types.
Another useful element of HarmoniEQ is its control surface's frequency range which goes up to 38 kHz. Such extended range allows you to make smooth "air" boosts easily. While HarmoniEQ is best suited for EQ boosts, its EQ cuts also sound great.
The following features were added to HarmoniEQ since version 1.x:
- Better overall dynamic behavior.
- Low-pass, high-pass and notch filters.
- Real-time spectrum display with zooming.
- Input signal level control.
- Multi-channel support.
- Multi-platform support.
- Mid/side processing.
- Channel routing matrix.
- Preset manager.
- User interface coloration.
- User interface re-scaling.
- Channel grouping.
- Plug-in instance naming.
