Linear phase equalizer

SplineEQ is a linear phase equalizer plugin. Designed to be simple and flexible, SplineEQ allows you to create filters using Bézier splines, the best known way to design curves.

Features

- Linear phase equalizer. Offers a better sound quality than the more common minimum phase equalizers by not affecting the phase of sound, only the intensity of frequencies, which makes it easier to achieve good sounding results. Also has the advantage of not incurring aliasing artifacts.

- Spline-based filter design. Filters are simply created by designing a spline curve which can be made to adopt any imaginable shape. No filter types to choose from, all points simply define part of the shape of the filter's spline curve. The actual filter's frequency profile is displayed as a dashed curve...

SplineEQ is a linear phase equalizer plugin. Designed to be simple and flexible, SplineEQ allows you to create filters using Bézier splines, the best known way to design curves.

Features

- Linear phase equalizer. Offers a better sound quality than the more common minimum phase equalizers by not affecting the phase of sound, only the intensity of frequencies, which makes it easier to achieve good sounding results. Also has the advantage of not incurring aliasing artifacts.

- Spline-based filter design. Filters are simply created by designing a spline curve which can be made to adopt any imaginable shape. No filter types to choose from, all points simply define part of the shape of the filter's spline curve. The actual filter's frequency profile is displayed as a dashed curve when it differs from the ideal spline curve (this can be changed by changing the filter's resolution).

- Up to 60 bands (only up to 4 in the free version of SplineEQ) or as low as 1. You can create or disable bands by double clicking on the visualisation area of the interface and adjust them either in that area or using the knobs or even the automatable parameter sliders in the host's interface.

- Simple curve modification functions. You can modify the curve as a whole using the transpose function to shift the curve up and down by up to 10 octaves, affect the overall gain to shift all gain settings up or down evenly or even change the gain scale to apply a ratio to all gains, thus enabling you to either flatten, exaggerate or reverse the shape of a curve.

- Frequency analyser. More intuitive than your usual logarithmic curve frequency display, this frequency analyser shows you the intensity of frequencies before and after the filtering with colours. It's also fine tuned so that intensities at different frequencies are represented in a way that matches closely to our perception. It moves in a fluid manner in sync with the source sound and has a frequency resolution of about 10 Hz.

- Smooth and fluid graphics. The whole interface responds fluidly to change, even the frequency visualisation has a great frame rate and all the graphics are perfectly anti-aliased.

-Infinite dB to +60 dB gain range. This allows you to completely silence entire ranges of the spectrum or to really bring back some fainter harmonics by boosting their amplitude thousandfold. Gains are represented logarithmically between -60 dB and +60 dB and linearly below -60 dB. Given the uniquely immense gain range there's also a built-in limiter whose knob lights up when over the adjustable threshold.

- Smooth transitions. Changing parameters, either by adjusting the knobs, the graph or by parameter automation is always done smoothly and creates no audio artifacts.

- Adjustable resolution, latency and CPU usage. The resolution of the filter can be lowered or increased (up to roughly 22 Hz) and the processing latency can be changed to obtain a lower CPU usage or a lower latency.

- Good performance. Linear phase equalizers always require more power than other types of equalizers. However SplineEQ is as fast or faster than other linear phase equlizers, often with less latency.

- Presets are available here and can be saved or open (not with the free version of SplineEQ). Their format is compatible across all platforms and hosts and can be edited with a text editor.

- Affordable. SplineEQ is much more affordable than other linear phase equalizers because it is designed to be simpler and is made to be the first entry-level professional linear phase equalizer.

- Also supports all sampling rates (384 kHz included), is available on both Windows and Mac (Intel and PowerPC), in VST (2.4) and AU format, in 32 and 64 bits. All input, output and processing are done in 64-bit floating point format and in stereo.

SplineEQ SplineEQ v 1.2 Oct 30, 2015 MacOS X Intel
It has a new stereo visualisation mode in which the colour of a band indicates its position in the stereo mix. Also the preset buttons look different in preparation of more interface changes in the near future.
Photosounder SplineEQ SplineEQ v 1.1 Jun 24, 2014 MacOS X Intel
  • Added vertical zoom so that the visualisation range can go from +60/-infinite dB to +/- 3 dB

  • Added horizontal zoom up to 10x. The zoom level is control with the mouse wheel, moving left and right is done by holding the right mouse button

  • New interface with redone graphics and 48-bit colour depth with dithering

  • Selectable interface size in 3 sizes, 780x566, 1060x566 and 1220x666

  • Latency reporting method changed for better latency compensation in some hosts

  • Changed the way resolution and delay are calculated and extended the maximum resolution to 16 (equivalent to ~16,000 bins at a 44.1 kHz sampling rate)

  • Fixed the 64-bit VST on Mac
  • Photosounder SplineEQ v 1.0.9 May 16, 2012 MacOS X Intel
    SplineEQ 1.0.9 was just released. The Limiter is completely changed and sounds much better.
