Pitch-Tracking Equalizer

Up until now, EQ's were set to a fixed frequency range. In reality, fundamental frequencies and the harmonic series change with the pitch of the instrument or vocal track. This characteristic makes the standard, fixed-frequency EQ less effective when it is used to manipulate the instruments/vocals harmonics.

SurferEQ tracks the pitch of the instrument or a vocal track and can change the EQ frequency accordingly in real-time, making it possible for the first time to naturally control the fundamental frequencies or harmonics of a track. Just set any of the EQ bands to a desired harmonic and watch SurferEQ move with the track, staying always relevant to the music.

For over a year, we've meticulously developed an accurate, real-time pitch detection engine with virtually no octave errors....

For over a year, we've meticulously developed an accurate, real-time pitch detection engine with virtually no octave errors. There's no need for endless parameters tweaking. It just works.

When developing our original analog-behaving asymmetric EQ algorithms (No cookbook EQ here!), we've made every effort to preserve the size and energy of the original recording. SurferEQ sounds natural even when it is pushed to its extremes. In addition to the HP, LP, shelf and bell shaped filters, we've developed a unique four mode harmonic filter. It takes on a whole new life when it moves with the pitch and makes it possible to achieve new sounds as never heard before.

Version 2.0.0
What's New?

Side-chain input: Makes it possible to use pitch from another track to process polyphonic audio tracks to make "space" in the mix.
Spectral Gate (normal and reversed): Allows engaging or disengaging the EQ when the input level crosses a set threshold level.
Live mode with zero latency
Four new and extremely creative Harmonic Filter modes
Morphing filters
Surf-time control: Allows setting the speed at which SurferEQ will "Surf" from one note to another.
HP and LP Surf-frequency limit: Allows setting a limit to the high- and low-pass filters when Surfing.
Undo/redo
PACE iLok for protection and easy mobility
Completely re-designed, retina-compatible and OpenGL optimized vector graphics UI
Spectral Level Meters
Frequency analyzer

pitch Surfer EQ v 1.2.0 Apr 8, 2013 MacOS X UB
New Features

MIDI support: SurferEQ now has MIDI note input and supports 3 operation modes (described in detail below)
AAX compatability. 32 and 64 bit, Pro Tools 11 compatible
Settings window allows tweaking pitch tracking parameters

Improvements

Improved filter transitions (Fixed "pop"s on extreme settings)
CPU usage optimized by up to 75%
Trial version is now a 30-day fully functional trial

Bug-fixes

Graphics compatibility with Retina displays
Fixed keyboard input issues in some Windows hosts
Fixed rare crashes in Windows

MIDI Modes

MIDI mode 1: Note Overrides Detection

Designed for easy correction of the pitch-detection engine when required. A MIDI Note On input will override the internal pitch-detector. On MIDI Note Off, the pitch-detection engine will resume its operation.
MIDI mode 2: Surf By Note

Designed for frequency specific ducking. Pitch / Frequency is controlled by MIDI, Internal pitch-detection engine is disabled. MIDI Note On / Off toggles Surf-enabled bands.
MIDI mode 3: Instrument Mode

Designed to be played like an instrument where the source audio acts as an oscillator. Pitch / Frequency and sound are controlled and triggered by MIDI Notes.
