Привет,

currently I am trying different EQs to determine which best fits my needs for both workflow and sound.

Currently I'm in love with your GlissEQ because I can overlay spectrums from other instances of the plugin, and that's extremely helpful to place instruments in the mix.

But:

I learned that due to it's feature of dynamically adapting filter gain, the GlissEQ can not be phase linearized without tremendous CPU load (really still a problem with Dual Cores soon to be Quads ?)

I fear to go for Gliss now, because isn't it true that especially at low frequencies I think one should be as phase linear as possible ?

So should I better also get CurveEQ for the basses only (which unfortunatley lacks the nice spectrum overlay feature of Gliss) ?

I must admit I'm not very familiar with the Dyn button right now and oftenly set it to 0 (zero) to work with the EQ as I'm used to from other EQs.

Is the GlissEQ (more) phase linear when setting dyn to 0 (zero) ?

Спасибо,

Gerry


GlissEQ has no phase-linear mode at all.  You may try CurveEQ for that.

However, I doubt you really need phase-linear filters for bass frequencies.  You may just try using wider bell shapes.  Steep filter changes in the lower frequencies may indeed sound a bit boxy.


Thanks I will go and listen to the CurveEQ,

though I find the GlissEQ more convenient to handle and his spectrum overlay is a killer feature.

Regards

Or you may boost the exact frequency you want a little bit and add two even lesser boosts either side of that.

Say you want a boost of 4dB at 150Hz, then boost 2 at 150 and then 1 at 100 and 1 at 200 or something similar.

This is a not so known mastering EQ technique, but it doesn't harm if you use it at the mixing stage, as well!
