CONEQ plug-ins are multi-channel software equaliser components for applying the CONEQ correction filters from within a host application. CONEQ plug-ins are a software alternative to Real Sound Lab's flagship product, the APEQ hardware equalizer.
The CONEQ correction filters are obtained using the CONEQ Starter or CONEQ Workshop applications and then loaded into the CONEQ plug-in. The CONEQ plug-in is inserted as the last plug-in on the master track/bus and used at all times when monitoring a recording session and editing or mixing the material. However, the CONEQ plug-in only improves the sound quality of the equipment and not that of the mix. Therefore, the plug-in must be disabled (bypassed) when exporting the final production.
There are four editions of the CONEQ plug-ins: CONEQ P2, CONEQ P8, CONEQ P2pro, and CONEQ P8pro. They differ in the maximum supported filter resolution and the maximum number of channels that can be filtered simultaneously.
