What Is EQuivocate?
Eli Krantzberg from Logic Pro Expert was given early access to EQuivocate. Watch his video review to see how this EQ plug-in differs from others and to hear it perform EQ matching on a mastering workflow example.
How Does EQuivocate Work?
EQuivocate uses filters which are modelled on the Mel scale which is based on critical bands in human hearing. 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.
"Perfect for mixing and mastering, EQuivocate's auditory filters and match EQ functionality make it incredibly powerful, simple to use, and natural sounding.
Use EQuivocate’s Match EQ feature to make the sound of your track match or complement the audio signal streamed to its side-chain. You can also use it to make a final master match the tone of a reference track, or help fit a sound into a dense mix. Unlike other match EQ plug-ins, EQuivocate provides a transparent match without trying to model imperceptible differences which can cause a match EQ to sound unnatural. Feed your favourite song or individual track into it and instantly morph your tone to match.
The 26 filters are distributed along the Mel Spectrum but you can customize the filters and their frequencies. When combined with usability options like Automatic Level Compensation, Draw EQ Curve, and individual solos for each critical band, EQuivocate is as powerful as it is precise."
