TotalEQ 1.3.0 is available, this update is free for owners of the plugin and includes:
Added Apple M1 support
Minimum macOS requirement is now 10.11 with metal graphic card
Fixed high cpu usage and crackles with small buffer sizes
Fixed q text box being editable when no q parameter is available
Fixed high gain jumps when exiting solo mode fora a band and “eq loud” is activated
Fixed band unselling when restoring a session with a soloed band
Fixed muted bands being unmuted if a band is soloed and then unsoloed
Versatile visual equalizer for every task
HoRNet TOTAL EQ is a precise and versatile equalizer with a handy spectrum analyzer. The peculiar feature of TOTAL EQ is that every parameter of each equalizer band can be controlled from the control point on the frequency chart, this simply means that you will never have to look around to find the controls for the band you are editing, but everything will be there right at your mouse pointer reach.
The equalizer itself is very versatile providing up to 12 different bands, any of them can behave like digital precise EQs or can have analog character. The analog emulation in this plugin is the most advanced we have ever made, of course it emulates the saturation of analog gear but also the component tolerance so that no band behaves like another. In a few words it means a slight level of unpredictability that make things more interesting and “alive”.
Each band can work like any of the 17 different available filter type, including low pass, high pass, band pass, high shelf, low shelf and the classic fully parametric peak equalizer.
In addition to the standard eq controls specific to the filter type, every band can work as a dynamic filter borrowing the automatic attack and release and the automatic threshold from our HoRNet DynEQ, this approach gives you easy control on the dynamic behaviour of the each band without needing many controls and making dynamic EQ as easy as dragging a dot on the screen.
Each band of the EQ has Mid/Side capabilities allowing you to select individually the source and to correctly fine tune the frequency response of your stereo image.
The plugin also provide global controls that allow you to enable or disable analog emulation and saturation globally, and the ability to link input and output so that when you change one the other gets updated accordingly and you can easily drive the analog engine of the plugin without changing its output level.
To take EQ decision more easily we also added the “EQ LOUD” button that stands for “equal loudness”, borrowing the code from our CLMS plugin we are able to keep the loudness level constant no matter what you do to your eq bands, this in turns gives you the ability to judge your EQ decisions removing the infamous “loudness bias”
The demo is fully functional except for the fact that every now and then it will silence out, you cannot save parameter values with your session and the plugin will not respond to automation coming from the host.
