Product Description for the Sound Magic Neo EQ
Neo EQ is a revolutionary concept in equalizer technology. Totally different from traditional EQ, Neo EQ is able to automatically detect and lock in the most audible/sensitive frequency. This makes the whole EQ process much easier and more effective than traditional EQ.
Auto Detect Fundamental and Harmonic Frequency
Mixing engineers spend years learning how to hear frequencies and fine tune the EQ. To get that perfect EQ, you have to acquire a lot of professional knowledge, which can be quite time consuming and relies heavily on having "golden ears". Then the tweaking starts, boosting or cutting each targeted frequency by just the right amount. Too much or too little boost/cut will not do a good job. And that's not the end of the nightmare: there's also Q to consider and this alone can make or break a sound, the track - the entire mix! EQ is always where the value of the mixing engineer is put under the microscope.
Auto Analysing and Tracking the signal changes
Neo EQ does a lot of the work that a mixing engineer did in the past. Send an audio signal to Neo EQ and it will analyze that input and find just the right frequencies for you. You won't need to hunt for the right frequency by yourself anymore or worry about whether you can find the correct one. After Neo EQ finds that perfect frequency for you, you can adjust the bass, the basic frequency and the harmonic for it. This not only saves a lot of time, it can give you amazing insight on how those with years of training zero in on exactly what needs fixing.
Superior Sound Quality
Neo EQ is more efficient, giving you way more effect with much smaller changes. A 2dB boost sounds similar to an 8dB boost on a common parametric EQ. The bottom line? You end up with much less distortion by increasing the efficiency of the EQ. Less boost/decay and narrower bandwidth makes any distortion far less than traditional EQ. Measurement results prove that Neo EQ only brings around 5% of the distortion of a traditional parametric EQ unit.
Unique EQ Style Settings Greatly saves your time
And Neo EQ takes the guesswork out of messing with the Bandwidth/Q settings. Sound Magic has analyzed hundreds of mixing engineer's EQ methods and developed three special algorithms for bandwidth. Pick your musical/engineering style and Bandwidth will be automatically calculated for you.
Digital Clone the Tonal Balance
Another key feature that Neo EQ provides is that you can analyze a piece of audio first, then hold the frequency characteristics of it and apply that setting to other audio tracks. In this way, you can clone a static EQ setting from one audio track to another easily. This is a way of to clone tonal balance from one piece to another.
3 Processing Modes
Neo EQ2.0 has 3 stereo modes for different usages in different situations. Stereo is the common mode we mostly use to process stereo or mono signal. M/S Mono Mode will transfer the stereo signal into an M/S signal, then only process the M (Mono) channel. This is often useful in mastering and will let you process the instruments located in the middle while the ones located on left or right are not influenced. M/S Side mode will only process the S (side) channel of the signal. This is very useful when you need to adjust the stereo field of the whole mix.
Neo EQ provides different extension presets packs to expand and simplify its usage. Piano, Drum, String and Guitar packs will enable Neo EQ to handle your piano, drum, string and guitar sounds with that professional style and ease. Pop pack will enable Neo EQ to better fit into a pop music style. With these extension packs, you can more quickly and more easily achieve your ideal sound for your music!
