Multi-Q is a three EQ models in one plugin, a graphic, parametric, and tube EQ.

You can use all three EQ's at once if you wish or just one band. The filters turn off at 0 dB of gain to save precious CPU, so don't be afraid to load it up to just use one band. Multi-Q also has low and high pass filters, a drive for tube distortion, mid/side processing, oversampling, and a phase inversion. Use the 3 buttons on the right side to switch EQ UI focus and have at it!

Although the UI looks like famous analog EQ's, this isn't supposed to be a hardware emulation, just a familiar interface and a starting point for creativity. Each EQ model's parameters were determined by my own EQing practices and I hope you find it useful!
  • Graphic EQ : 10 EQ bands from 31 to 15K hertz each with -12 to 12 dB of gain. These bands also use proportional bandwidth to behave more like hardware.
  • Parametric EQ : 4 EQ bands, each with its own frequency selecting knob and -12 to 12 dB of gain.
  • Tube EQ : 2 sets of EQ bands each with a boost and cut knob for highs and lows. There's also a frequency selecting knob for each set of bands and a shard bandwidth knob.
  • High and Low pass filters.
  • Drive for tube-style saturation.
  • Output trim to control the output volume.
  • Reset button to reset all sliders for the chosen model to 0 dB.
  • Quality menu to select between no oversampling and 2 times oversampling.
  • Stereo menu to select mid/side processing choices - which are stereo, mids, or sides.
  • Phase invert button
  • CPU monitor that can be toggled on or off
  • Ability to type values into the dials and faders.
  • Filters individually turn of when set to 0 dB to save on CPU, same goes for the drive and the high/low pass filter when set to 20 and 20K hertz respectively.
  • Mac Universal (M1 and Intel) AU and VST 64 Bit.
  • Windows VST3 64 Bit.

I'm liking the parametric and tube EQ for top down mixing. :)

3 different equalizers in a single plugin and some additional useful features, like separate HP/LP filters, saturation, m/s option, what more can you expect? I usually sometimes use some other graphic eq's, but their bands are not exactly the ones which perfectly match my needs, the bands here seem to be better selected in my opinion. Even more flexibility concerning frequencies allows the parametric eq, while the tube eq with only two bands but selectable bandwidth has it's own qualities. Good concept, well made!
