Heya,

here's another creation of mine, a graphic equalizer.

As of the current version it features:
  • 31 bands (1/3rd octave width)
  • boost/cut range of +-12 dB in .1 dB steps
  • master gain (can be set manually or automatically => prevents clipping for the most part)
  • minimum phase (=> no pre-echo)
  • approximates a smooth frequency response (=> no 'steps' between the bands)
  • import/export presets
  • mono and stereo mode


Since this is my first fb2k plugin that's a bit more complex this plugin should be considered experimental, use it at your own risk.
Please let me know if you encounter any bugs, thanks.

There's still room for optimizations and new features.. cool.gif

Download

Usage
1) Install the downloaded zip file using the Components preferences page.
2) Add "Graphic Equalizer" to the list of active DSPs (Playback - DSP Manager preferences page).
3) Configure it.

Example frequency response in green (compared to built-in EQ in red):

Note that the boost in the lowest octaves isn't possible with the built-in EQ.

Hey this really rocks.
I was born with a visual impairment, so I have super hearing. Ok, it isn't super, but it's pretty sensitive and there are certain frequencies that really annoy me like those around the 250 range. I don't wipe them out completely, but I like having control of them and other ones, so your plugin is like an early Christmas present.

Thanks sincerely for developing it.

If I had any requests, it would be to make the EQ accessible from a menu, otherwise, awesome work.

By the way, I registered just to compliment and thank you.
You have to show appreciate for other people's work, especially when they're providing the results free of charge.
