Product Description for the Sound Radix SurferEQ
Up until now, EQ's were set to a fixed frequency range. In reality, fundamental frequencies and the harmonic series change with the pitch of the instrument or vocal track. This characteristic makes the standard, fixed-frequency EQ less effective when it is used to manipulate the instruments/vocals harmonics.
SurferEQ tracks the pitch of the instrument or a vocal track and can change the EQ frequency accordingly in real-time, making it possible for the first time to naturally control the fundamental frequencies or harmonics of a track. Just set any of the EQ bands to a desired harmonic and watch SurferEQ move with the track, staying always relevant to the music.
For over a year, we've meticulously developed an accurate, real-time pitch detection engine with virtually no octave errors. There's no need for endless parameters tweaking. It just works.
When developing our original analog-behaving asymmetric EQ algorithms (No cookbook EQ here!), we've made every effort to preserve the size and energy of the original recording. SurferEQ sounds natural even when it is pushed to its extremes. In addition to the HP, LP, shelf and bell shaped filters, we've developed a unique four mode harmonic filter. It takes on a whole new life when it moves with the pitch and makes it possible to achieve new sounds as never heard before.
We are excited and proud to finally put our creation in your hands. We hope you'll find it inspiring and creative as we have. Surf on!
SurferEQ is available for Mac & PC in AAX, RTAS, VST and AU formats, in 32 and 64 bits where applies.
