Viator Graphic EQ is an analog graphic EQ.

Unlock the true potential of your audio with Viator Graphic EQ, a plugin designed to bring the classic character of analog EQ hardware right to your digital audio workstation. Whether you're a professional producer, mixing engineer, or an aspiring musician, this plugin will overcharge your audio processing experience.

Dynamic Filter Bandwidth: Taking emulation to a whole new level, Viator Graphic EQ's dynamic filter bandwidth feature ensures an exceptionally accurate representation of analog hardware behavior. As you raise the gain positively, the filter bandwidth slightly narrows, producing a harmonically pleasing and organic sound. When lowering the gain negatively, the bandwidth narrows even further, granting you precise control over your audio like never before.

10-Band Precision: Viator Graphic EQ offers an impressive 10 bands of equalization, granting you the flexibility to sculpt and shape your audio with surgical precision. Each band is optimized to cover a broad frequency range, allowing you to tame problematic frequencies, enhance essential elements, and unleash your creativity with unmatched control.

Lowpass & Highpass Filters: Craft smooth and seamless transitions in your audio by utilizing the built-in lowpass and highpass filters. Whether you want to add a touch of warmth to your mix or eliminate unwanted rumble and hiss, these filters are the perfect tools to clean up your audio and make it shine.

Intuitive Input & Output Controls: I understand that a seamless workflow is crucial for any audio professional. That's why Viator Graphic EQ comes with a user-friendly interface, providing intuitive input and output controls. Easily adjust your audio levels to achieve the perfect balance while maintaining the highest audio quality throughout your signal chain.

Real-time VU Meter: Stay informed and in control of your audio levels with the real-time VU meter. The VU meter provides accurate visual feedback, allowing you to monitor your audio's dynamics and make informed decisions during the mixing process.

Not used it a lot yet but it looks very, very promising. Like LV60 but more character, less smooth, less clinical (and doesn't dull the tone when you turn it on). Similar to Multi-Q but a bit warmer and less rough sounding (I suspect it's a tweaked and re-skinned version of multi-Q because the CPU usage is identical). So far it looks like a really great sounding EQ with a surprisingly moderate CPU footprint but there is a glitch. The sound cuts out (Tracktion waveform free 11) any time I try to adjust either the HPF or LPF. Also, design wise, I'm not sure about the wisdom of having filters that cover the whole 20-20,000 range. It seems to me like 1khz is a reasonable limit for filters in 90% of situations and makes for less fiddly control. Also, it would be nice to know what the markings represent in terms of db. I'm going to assume they indicate 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, but would be nice to know, all the same. Incidentally, this is a very unsubtle EQ so you won't need to boost or cut further than that first marking (whatever it represents) in most cases.
