SonEQ Pro is a four-band equalizer inspired by various high-end analog equalizers. We've adapted and incorporated the best qualities from these hardware classics into a single cohesive, yet versatile software design. As such, SonEQ Pro aims to serve as a first choice equalizer for mixing engineers of all genres.

Our first plugin, SonEQ (Free), began as a hobbyist's labor of love, but quickly became a powerful "go-to" mix tool for many amateurs and professionals alike. Drawing on expertise in analysis and design gained through creation of our later plugins, Satson and Sweetone, we set out to build a completely new EQ from the ground up. Thus, SonEQ Pro was born.


  • Improved modeling. SonEQ Pro sounds remarkably close to the analog equipment it emulates.
  • Refined EQ curves. Curves maintain their integrity and purity of form near the Nyquist, resulting in more analog-like sound and behavior.
  • Four bands + HP/LP filters.
  • Low-Band Bell Filter Switch. Transforms SonEQ Pro's low-band into a bell filter upon engagement.
  • High-Cut Control. Combines a low-pass 6dB/oct. with a shelf filter for soft and smooth sounding cuts.
  • High Band, SonEQ Pro's high boost is very soft and silky, great for imparting a natural sense of "air" to an individual instrument or entire mix.
  • Mid Band, this band has a musical sound but it can be very aggressive if required.
  • High-Mid Band, sounds very musical and natural, due to its large bandwidth and smoothly shaped bell.
  • High-pass, while the slope is highly effective for cutting, it's the carefully sculpted attenuation near the slope that makes this filter especially soft and sweet.
  • Low-pass: The low-pass filter is a smooth 12 dB/oct, which combines two 6 dB/oct filters in cascade.
  • SonEQ Pro's pre-amp section is designed to impartsubtle warmth without overt coloration of your mix.
  • Zero latency, no group delay, and careful optimization for low CPU consumption.
  • Internal 64-bit floating point double precision.

If you love the sonEQ, you ll love this one ! (and you ll support sonimus !).

It's a wonderfull coloring/tone shaping tool that never sounds bad and that contains history !
It is an homemade mix of famous analog units :

The drive is nice and adds low end presence, there's a pultec shelf for the lows, .

an agressive low-mid/mid band, a smooth high-mid bands, and wonderfull high-shelp trop produce air and shimmer .

There is also different high-frequency cuts filter/bands type, that allows to tame the high in a very musical way (different configuration of high shelf and low-cut filter that are perfectly connected to do the job)

Some examples of use :

- Pultec shelf and drive on drums/bass to shape the low-end with no mud.

- shimmer and agression on vocals with the high mid and shelf.

- tame high frequency of a violin in a musical way to let the vocals cut through the highs.
