basiQ is an acronym for Baxandall Simulation Equalizer, a free 3-band equalizer plug-in with photorealistic graphics from Kuassa, Inc.
As the name implies, the engine is modeled after a design of classic baxandall equalizer well known for its smooth shelves and natural-sounding responses, similar to the tone control on a hi-fi systems. The simple controls allow you to shape the frequency from many sources to your needs, from opening up an air on guitar leads, adding a gentle shimmer on vocals, giving extra oomph on your synth basslines, or even getting more presence from your masters.
It's well-suited for mixing or mastering purpose although the neutral characteristic of basiQ are more suitable as a sweetening device or giving some transparent tilt to your mix rather than a surgical device.
I love it. The processing is absolutely transparent. It behaves exactly like the tone controls of very-high quality analog preamps. I use it as a tone control to tame some older analog pop music recordings. It runs as a plug-in in PureMusic on an old MacBook used as media server for my main Hi-Fi stereo system at home. Its CPU load is very low. And it's free! Highly recommended.Read Review
