In this free video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers demonstrates five useful features of the bx_digital V3 EQ plugin from Plugin Alliance.
bx_digital V3 has a flexible soloing system where the parameter being changed is soloed while the user is changing that parameter. When the parameter is released the full bandwidth audio is restored. Any combination of frequency, gain and Q can be soloed.
A system of small latching buttons next to each control allows every control to be ganged with its counterpart in the other channel (whether working in L&R or M&S mode). Similar to but far more flexible than the unlinking of channels in a multi-mono plug in.
With a corresponding counterpart at the treble end, these controls dial in a "dip then a bump" curve which can be applied positively or negatively in one of three preset shapes. It sounds inflexible but the curves are well chosen and it is surprisingly useful.
A global control which allows complex EQ curves to be exaggerated, diminished or even inverted while keeping their relative levels consistent. Very useful.
Not a full-blown dynamic EQ, this should be seen as a de-esser with extended capabilities.
