Dynamic EQ - free or cheap? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Anyone know of a freeware or cheap dynamic EQ?

Can't seem to find one anywhere

I know of gliss EQ but would quite like a free one as I'm trying to go all-legit and can't quite afford the $99 for it Crying

hmmm, could well be. But it doesnt look like it'd be flexible enough for my needs lol.

Does any other functions appear once you select any of the dynamic options?

Cheers for the effort mate, much appreciated Big Grin

Well normal ones are static whereas dynamic ones are, well.....dynamic lol

let me give a couple of examples....

1) you boost the top end of your drums with a normal (static) eq.

This makes it more trebly yes, but it can also make it more hissy and sound harsh.
now if you applied the same boost with a dynamic eq, you can make it so that the boost is only applied to the transients and not all the time. Therefore the boost is reacting in a dynamic way to the input audio.
Resulting in sharper top end that doesn't become fatiguing.

2)
You are mixing drums for a 'real' drum kit. You want to boost say kHz of the snare in the overheads but without boosting the cymbals, hats.
Using a good dynamic eq you can make it so that only the loud snare causes the eq to apply the boost, leaving the rest of the audio untouched.

I could give lots more examples but i think you will get the gist Big Grin
