Visual EQ Console AUv3 Plugin by 4Pockets.com

4Pockets.com released Visual EQ Console AUv3 Plugin, an incredibly useful EQ that shows the spectrum of your sounds in real-time while you tweak them to find the sweet spots. There are 10 different filter types that can be applied at 4 different band, with a built-in limited to prevent you from going crazy with the resonance.

Visual EQ Console AUv3 Plugin iTunes Description:

This is an AUv3 compatible effect plugin which is intended for use inside your favourite DAW such as Cubasis, Auria, Meteor, AUM or GarageBand etc.

Visual EQ Console is a studio quality multi-band EQ console with the ability to analyse audio in real time giving an accurate and reliable spectrum representation of the frequency response. 

It includes your typical set of 4 parametric filters which are stable even when parameters are being changed. We also include low and high shelf as well as low and high pass filters, that's 10 filters in all.

We use a high quality highly hardware optimised FFT to plot the frequency response through the filters so you can see exactly what effect your changes are having on the sound. The scrolling interface automatically adjusts to the hosts window size to allow a double height display in an appropriate DAW.

One of the main problems with most Studio type EQ's is they don't give a true representation of the frequency response, often hiding the inpact of low and high pass / shelf filters on the frequency response. This plugin accurately tracks the response all the way through the audio chain and is backed up by the spectrum analyser so you can be confident that it is having the desired effect.

We also include a Compressor / Limiter section to ensure those settings never get too aggressive. 

You can load and save custom console presets as well as copy and paste settngs between instances. This is great if you need to setup multiple instances with the same settings.

Plenty of options are tucked away under the hood so as not to clutter the display. 

Main Features:

○ 4 resonant paramettic filters (A-D) .
○ All filters adjustable +/-24dB.
○ High and Low Pass filters.
○ Low and High Shelf Filters.
○ Touch interface with multi-touch for controlling filter Q.
○ Spectrum Analyser with Pre and Post monitoring.
○ Vertical shift and scale options for the spectrum.
○ Create and save custom presets.
○ Copy / Paste presets between instances.
○ Compressor / Limiter with Auto Makup Gain.
○ Twin VU meters
○ Quick Reset options for each section of the console.

I see a let’s play with all these filters and eq’s coming up. Is fabs offering worth the extra cash?
To prevent me from going crazy with the resonance, no shit, my ear drum thanks you for that!

IMHO, yes. The waveform that is plotted comes in at very high resolution, and you can control how that waveform is visualized. The slope on the ProQ is the highest I’ve seen anywhere. That seems to be preset in 4Pockets. ProQ is not limited to 6 bands. This might sound like overkill for most purposes, but for surgical equing, I have had to use more. The ProQ is easier to use then most EQ’s I’ve seen, so for beginners it is very intuitive, and the more experienced users will appreciate the accuracy. You can see the waveform before and after processing to see if you suddenly created more problems instead of fixing problems. I said it before, the ProQ will be the absolute LAST parametric I ever purchase. It goes on absolutely everything I do. Fast, intuitive, won’t kill the CPU...the list goes on and on why I believe it’s superior.

Next up is their multiband compressor, which could very well be the last compressor I ever buy for iOS as well. Once again, congratulations to 4Pockets for putting out the first one for iOS, but sometimes I feel I need my scientific calculator to set it up. I bought a pitch shifter (which to their credit warned me about latency before purchase) but even with the most simplest settings, the latency is completely unusable in a live context: anything with transients (drums/vocals/bass) will be so out of time and out of sync with the program material, and anything you bounce to disk in your DAW will have to be microscopically re-synced with everything else. 😡In conclusion, I sit back and observe reactions and results from our community before I automatically buy anything from 4Pockets.
