AirEQ was designed with a vision of achieving musical, technical and sonic excellence. Simple, intuitive and quick to use, AirEQ is a musical equalizer plugin at its best. The Water and Fire curves, as the Character and Strength parameters were adjusted by ear, so mixing engineers can focus on one thing - making music sound great. With its unprecedented Character and Strength parameters, Air and Earth, ease of use, intuitive and musical features, AirEQ is an equalizer which is truly unique in design. Additionally, with its transparent and precise sound, zero-delay processing and low CPU, you will always get the best quality processing without any compromise. That's why AirEQ is ideal for Mastering, Mixing, Post-Production, and any situation where getting the best musical EQ sound, fastest performance, and intuitive workflow is of the utmost importance. AirEQ’s revolutionary Character parameter goes Beyond Analog : in order to adjust precisely and continuously the resonance of each band, it changes the shape of the EQ curve, from the smooth Water curve to the focused Fire curve. It is the most elegant and artistic way to control resonances quickly and intuitively. Water : the smoothest sound possible, open and natural, ideal for transparency. Clear highs, compact bass and balanced mids. Fire : very tight and focused sound, with punch and impact, ideal for precision. Snappy mids, sharp highs and powerful lows. Neutral : the usual equalization curves, perfectly matched to their analog references. The Air and Earth are a new and easy way to adjust high and low frequencies. The Earth is amazing to boost the very low end of any track, because it never sounds boomy thanks to the unique design of its phase response. The Air is an incredibly smooth and silky high frequency adjustment, perfect for breathing life into any track. AirEQ has been designed to fasten the workflow of mixing engineers, so they can reach quickly, and intuitively, the sound they have in their mind. The musical Q/Gain adjustement, along the Strength behavior, used with the ultra-musical analyzer, is the perfect combination of listenting, intuition and analysis within the same plugin interface. Hide the analyzer for an "ears-only mode", right-click on band switches for advanced options, shift-click on the Q for per-band Character, rename bands to make your own presets, assign each band to Left or Right, Mid or Side, class bands by frequency order.. Equalizing has never been that quick, easy and elegant.
I couldnt be bothered reading back through all the thread, but i just updated the Air EQ from the original plug on release day. Will there be an increase in audio quality of the plug? or no change?
...my UAD plugs - in the end I found I didn't end up using plugs by Slate, Fabfilter, Plugin Alliance, AirEQ, etc. Since then I decided to stop wasting my time (and money) endlessly demoing and shooting out plugs, and I am content with the UAD plugs I have, and the occasional UAD...
Ah! I figured it out. You just log in to the gobbler installer and do it from there...... dead easy. Turns out there's only the new air eq atm but a couple more additions are imminent
