+1 to my understanding as well. Pretty similar to a multiband compressor / expander. That said, what is the difference between a dynamic EQ and a multiband compressor / expander? At least internally, they should basically work the same.
Applications that come to my mind (for both of these processors) are:
- The lowend of a chugga chugga guitar needs to be tamed down in level, but only when it occurs and not always (like a static EQ would do).
- Some piercing frequencies in a vocal needs to be tamed down, but only when it occurs etc...
