Most popular EQ plugin out there, possibly the best.
This EQ plugin is practically an industry standard, and has a really nice GUI. It comes standard with lots of presets, too, which can be a good thing if you just want to try and stick them on your sounds in the mix or use as examples to go off of. I will say, though, that sometimes it can be easy to overlook DAWs simple, but effective, built-in EQ plugins.
Best workhorse EQ on the planet
Like the title says, simply the best EQ on the planet. Why? It is highly flexibel, has awesome workflow and sounds awesome. And on top of that it is beautiful to look at. My go to EQ everyday. I wouldn't use it for coloring because it is very transparant. But there's plenty of other coloring EQ's on the market today.Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 2
Probably the Best Equalizer I have Used
This is one of if not the best equalizer plugin that I have used. I use it up front on each channel in the mix to shape the signal right out of the instrument plugins. For example, I use it on a synth as the first plugin in the chain. I also use it in my master chain as the first plugin. The thing I like about this EQ is that it allows me to see what I am doing so clearly. I almost don't have to hear the music to know what it is going to sound like. And, this version 2 has an auto gain feature that while not perfect does a great job at keeping the levels going out of this plugin quite even with what was going into it. That is always a chore during the gain staging process and this EQ takes easily an hour out of the process for me.Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 2
This is really my favorite EQ. I ve tried many free EQ before that, and it seemed that they always had colour to the sound, which could be then difficult to mix. The processing is very professional though and can not be applied to filter effects as well.Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 1
The Perfect EQ.
The Perfect EQ.
Everything about this EQ is perfect. The sound, the look, the features, the workflow. I love this EQ because, although I use it mostly for subtractive EQing, the additive EQ sounds super transparent, especially in the higher frequencies.
I'd recommend getting to know whatever EQ you have already, but if you have the money to spend, get to know this one instead and it will most likely improve your production quality.Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 2
5 stars, 2nd most used EQ
5 stars, 2nd favorite plugin EQ. Goes Massenburg, ProQ 2. I'd be fine with just the 2 plugin EQ options honestly, I rarely use anything else...ever. Most used plugins I have. The feature set on the Pro Q is nice & a big part of how it gets used as often as it does. It's a solid problem solver.
The Massenburg is a better sounding plugin EQ, but it's feature set is limited. It does what it does very well & that's it. No bells & whistles & that suits me just fine.
The ProQ 2 covers the mid side, the ease of finding problem frequencies, etc. & general problem solving, etc. it's what has made it a go to for EQ work where the Massenburg isn't a fit.
Lastly- the GUI is, I'm sure already mentioned, but refreshing & it's how I wish more developers would think.
It's a plugin for shits sake.
I'm not interested in some massive GUI representation of a NEVE or API.
Actually that, in addition to being a hassle just serves to remind me of said plugins failings.Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 2
oh so easy
Personally, I believe that a great graphic display and simple workflow ergonomics are paramount to a fantastic equalisation plug-in and FabFilter's Pro Q checks both of these boxes. It is for this reason that I absolutely love this Plug-in!Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 1
The best EQ
This is an amazing EQ plugin and it is very very quick, i like how it more or less guesses whether you want a HPF or LPF according to where you click. The HD display also makes it much easier to see every single frequency you want to manipulate on its spectrum analyser. Also the amount of points and curves you can make allow so much freedom to mix however you want. The frequency automation is also very responsive which is great.Version: FabFilter Pro-Q 1
