PE-1 Linear Phase Parametric Equalizer
SoniqWare releases PE-1, a seven bands stereo linear phase parametric equalizer with analog-like fully de-cramped frequency response, graphical editor, and exclusive shape controls.
PE-1 is a 7 bands fully parametric stereo equalizer which, besides sonic quality, possesses several unique and valuable features. First, it implements linear phase filters which totally preserve signal details and clarity, especially during transients, by avoiding the smearing usually caused by conventional non-linear phase filters. Of course, the filters in PE-1 can be selected amongst the usual shapes, including bell (peaking), band-pass, notch, (resonant) low-shelf, (resonant) high-shelf, low-cut and high-cut with different attenuation slopes, for a total of 11 filter shapes. The different bands also have unique filter shape controls allowing to tune the shape of the amplitude response of the bell filters, from usual bells to plateaus, exhibiting totally different sonic qualities and feel. This is performed individually for each equalizer band and really brings unprecedented control over the frequency response and tonal shaping of your material. Last but not least, the frequency responses are totally de-cramped, meaning that the response is not squeezed down in the HF region as it is the case on most digital equalizer implementations. This property actually simulates the behavior of professional analogue audio equalizers and results in greater sonic clarity. In the same vein, several modes are available for the Q factor dependency with filter gains, some of which mimic the feel of analogue equipment. Another smart feature, the user has access to an auto-gain function, where the master gain is adjusted according to the equalizer settings, in order to preserve the same perceived volume and minimize clipping. Further participating to the usability, the frequency response of the filters can be edited graphically using convenient handles on a large display. Finally, the interface also allows to use host automation features, as well as to store and retrieve programs. PE-1 handles all professional sample rates, up to 192 kHz.
