Eli Kranzberg reviews Eventide EQuivocate, a brand new powerful and precise paragraphic EQ plugin developed by Eventide. It's like Logic Pro’s Linear Phase EQ and Match EQ combined, and on steroids!
The plug-in itself, along with the soon to be released mastering limiter Elevate, has been developed by Newfangled Audio. They are a new company launched by the creator of Eventide’s Black Hole, H3000 Factory, and H910 plug-ins.
EQuivocate is a perfect EQ plugin for mixing and mastering.
It uses filters which are modeled on the MEL scale, which is based on the 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.

Logic Pro’s Linear Phase EQ & Match EQ on Steroids
The “paragraphic” part of the name is because, unlike traditional graphic equalizers with fixed bands, you can drag the center frequency in each of these bands to shift the weighting. There is also an excellent Match EQ feature on it that is simple and intuitive.
EQuivocate is like Logic Pro’s linear phase EQ and Match EQ combined and on steroids!
