MAAT Incorporated has announced the release of thEQorange, a cross platform plug–in for equalization and correction of digital audio. They say that the new product continues the legacy of the famed Linear Phase PEQ Orange, while introducing several firsts to the equalization marketplace. Here's the full details in the company's own words...
Available for both Windows and macOS, thEQorange builds on the groundbreaking foundation of Algorithmix’s no–compromise LP EQ Orange, while bringing that reference quality into the 21st Century. thEQorange is a two–pass, time domain equalizer that employs 80 bit floating point internal precision. It reduces pre and post–echo, while also providing exceptional pass and stopband ripple behavior, normally not achievable with frequency domain linear phase equalizers. Its complex internal architecture, sophisticated signal windowing, and applied calculation precision all contribute to its exceptionally natural sound and exacting fidelity.
Several features of thEQorange attests to MAAT’s philosophy of maximum workflow efficiency, and none more so than the exclusive Contribution Control™. Contribution allows an engineer to isolate only positive additions to a mix, only negative gain changes, the sum of both, and “normal” mode; all EQ changes along with the original input signal. The Contribution Control helps to aurally keep track of your progress, while speeding the work. Thom Wettstein at Mondstein Records, finds that Contribution and other convenience features save him time and makes thEQorange comfortable to work with. He likes the ability to re-order the bands, “…listening just to the cuts or boosts. It’s easy to find the sweet spot.” Though Swiss–based musician, engineer, label head and producer Wettstein enjoys the well–crafted user interface, the strength of the plug–in, “…is the de-masking of the mid frequencies. It’s very transparent.”
The plug–in is delivered in all modern formats, including cross–platform AAX and VST 2 and 3 as well as AU for macOS. Sample rates up to 384 kHz are supported for post–production of true HRA workflows.
