Powerful & Precise Human Ear EQ.

Perfect for mixing and mastering, EQuivocate's auditory filters and match EQ functionality make it incredibly powerful, simple to use, and natural sounding. EQuivocate uses filters which are modeled on the human ear. Each of the 26 critical bands tickles a different part of your inner ear, making any combination of settings sound as natural as possible. Combining this with a linear-phase filter shape that reduces pre-echo makes EQuivocate an EQ with a difference you can hear.


  • Simple yet musical, the 26 linear phase auditory filters are shaped to approximate the critical band filters in your ear.
  • Match EQ feature matches the tone of one track to another. Blend two tracks to sound like they came from the same source, complement each other for better separation, or make a final master have a similar tone to a reference track.
  • Click and swipe your mouse across the gain slider field to draw an EQ curve. Then toggle Draw Curve off to fine tune.
  • Use the output level Auto button to automatically compensate for level changes introduced by the EQ.
  • Solo the output of one or more bands to easily find problem frequencies.
  • Add or remove filters to customize your sound.
  • Includes artist presets from Richard Devine, Jeremy Lubsey, Alex Saltz, Sebastian Arocha Morton, Richard X, and John McCaig.
  • Start with the presets or create your own. Use the Compare button to toggle between two unique settings.

the 26... filters are shaped to approximate the critical band filters in your ear.

I have to say I wasn't aware that I had 26 band filters in my ear :)

Despite the BS-sounding description, I will definitely try this, though.

um it requires ILOk.

Nah it only requires an ilok account not an ilok stick. This is a very interesting plugin, it can so some amazing filtering as you can solo many individual bands at once while leaving others completely open. Its a good flavour.

This EQ is very intuitive to use, probably my favourite eq in terms of usability.

Unfortunately after placing a few of them in a project my project, the audio began to crackle. It appears to be very CPU heavy.
