Description.

Highlights:

  • Improved the EQ curves, to deliver a sharper, cleaner, and more pleasant rhythmic sound.
  • Allows for building your own custom EQ by switching between 4 EQ bands and 1 preamp module.
  • Combine up to 16 of its 5 modules in any way you want.
  • Use the classic Sonimus "WOOW" switch to make your final mixes more spatial and enhance the stereo width.
  • Saturation can be disabled by setting the Drive to the minimum ("off" label displayed) resulting in a transparent sound.
  • Up to 16x oversampling.
  • Mono and Stereo operation.
  • Optimized for low CPU usage.
  • Undo & Redo actions.
  • GUI scaling (80% up 150%).
  • Zero-latency (except for oversampling).

In-depth:

  • Add, remove, and rearrange up to 16 modules in one single instance of the plugin, tailoring your own EQ plugin.
  • 5 SonEQ modules to choose from:
  • Low band Module: Similar to one of the most famous analog EQs, the low-frequency controls consist of two filters that work interactively. One boosts lows while the other attenuates. Choose from 4 center frequencies: 20, 30, 60, and 100 Hz.
  • Low-Mid band Module: this band is a bell filter ranging from 45 Hz to 4000 Hz with a generally soft and very musical sound. Engage the HiQ to use the band for a "surgical" treatment.
  • High-Mid band Module: Ranging from 400 Hz to 9000 Hz, the high-mid band features a larger bandwidth and smoothly shaped bell, making it ideal for this type of frequency equalization.
  • High Module: taking inspiration from a variety of equalizers famous for their ability to apply a soft and silky sheen to the audio material. SonEQ2's high boost is great for adding a natural "air" to an individual instrument or an entire mix.
  • Preamp Module: clean and add warmth to the signal using the filters and drive from the preamp module.

That thing is amazing and now my goto EQ for most EQing tasks.

SonEQ 2 is an amazing enhancement of its little brother SonEQ and SonEQ pro.
If you don't know these EQ here are the main characteristics of the SonEQ plugins family :
- It is a frankenstein equalizer plugins where each band is modeled after different famous EQ, and these EQ sounds so good
- Despite having few controls these EQ are very versatile : LP and HP filters, low band mimics a pultec shelf, and high shelf. Whatever you do with this plugin, it always sounds good !

This new version, sonEQ2, is way more expensive but believe or not, it sounds even better to my ears than the other iterations ! The sound is really something crazy.

The second new thing is a new very useful feature : it is now a modular EQ where you can add up to 16 bands of any of these "frankenstein" band, each with its on character. It also features integrated oversampling (with selectable rate) and the option to remove the labels/values on the knob to have the pleasure to mix only with ears.

Pros :
- great analog sounding.

- flexible yet simple
- great for mixing with the ears and not the eyes.

- great for working quickly.

cons :
-more expensive than its brothers.
