MD, thanks for the info.

Yes, we will work more on the docs.  I guess the most hard thing to understand is how vintage processing, saturation and gear options work.  This will be possibly fixed in the next release.

As for destroying of mixes, gear options CAN destroy them if used improperly.  It can be also true that not all gear options are generally usable, and may be usable only in specific situations.  Only EQ itself (with gear options disabled) is maximally clean and transparent.

Anyways, if you want to preserve your mix 100%, you can disable gear options and saturation.  Vintage processing can be left enabled for additional presence effect.  Clean EQ is the only neutral operation mode while saturation and gear options were added for additional sound tweaking.

Fortunately, I use both platforms, but is there any chance of a Mac version of this?

Also, I had some feedback:

When altering a preset, I occasionally don't get the results i'm looking for and need to start over.  Unless I'm missing something, you have to close and reopen the plug in order to reset the preset.  Other plugs will just allow you to open the preset window and click the pre to reset it.  Any chance of integrating that into the Curve EQ?

Wicked Plug!!!,


So, reset button does not work for you?

no, i'm afraid it doesn't

for example.......

if i go to the 12 band EQ preset, make some adjustments and then press "reset"...... all the red dots dissappear and leave me with one grey at 16hz and one at 18k. it does not bring me back to the presets orignal setting.

please advise,


gc, okay, got your problem...  In fact, factory presets are not meant to be fixed and they won't return to original state when you press reset button.

You can temporarily store current preset by pressing 'cpy' button.  Later if you want to restore original preset, you can press 'xch' button.  However, this will work only if you do editing on a single preset.

Hi Aleksey,

It would be great to have an on/off button, like on the Pultec UAD-1.

This is very necessary for me because using the on/off button on the Cubase SX plug in skin, turnes the whole plug off and so you hear the jump in latency, and then when I turn the plug back on I get stuttering, and then I have to stop it, wait 2 secs then open it again.

I have a P4 1.7 optimized for audio so am surprised by the amount of CPU used here - but thats not the big issue for me, the issue is that i like to be able to compare the A/B the 2 different EQ settings in curve eq and then be able to A/B/C with bypassing the EQ, but smoothly without the audio dropping out.

I'm hoping that this is something eady for you to do.

I'm still trying out the demo, and this would help me to see the differences using this eq makes.



MD, got it.  I'll try to insert that feature somewhere (eh, there are already too much buttons in there).

Hi Aleksey and everyone,

it it possible for you to increase the FFT size than the current 2k? i guess this way the mixes will sound smoother because ive been getting a lot of hiss on some .wav files.

it would be really great if it had the option to choose the fft size up to 1000k.

btw, is there any way to make it work with Cool edit Pro/2000?

Could you give me a link of .wav files which give you hiss when processed by CurveEQ along with .fxp preset file?  I'll check it out.

BTW, increasing window size will surely increase overall quality, but not too much actually.  I think with 44.1k and 48k sample rates maximal 'sane' window size is 4096 samples.  Moving higher won't give anything useful.  If sample rate is higher, then of course, window size must be larger too.

1000k is an insane number.  Processing it real-time will load 100% at least a 1.5 GHz processor while calculating filter kernel (in CurveEQ style) will require 500 times more time.

To sum up, 2048 that is used in CurveEQ is a good alternative between performance and quality.  I had thoughts to go 4096 from the very start, but that was very slow.  Processing was as fast as with 2048, but filter kernel creation was too slow.

I think CurveEQ can be execute under CoolEdit with VST-DX wrapper if CoolEdit has no native VST plug-in support.
