IQ-Analyser V1.7.4 (changelog)

best vst vst3 au aax rtas dynamic eq


The analyser with Energy*-Curve shows you specifically what to do.

The Energy*-curve finally unveils the frequency points which are ideal for the post-production with an EQ .
In conventional analyzers the displayed curve is always characterized by the loudest spot – the IQ-Analyser shows 
you the frequency range considering the time factor: 


Therefore the appearance of the curve is not determined by the loudest position, but rather by the average, from the beginning to the end of the measurement.

User Feedbacks:

I bought  the IQ-Analyser two days ago and am impressed! The analyser is a real enrichment!

I´d like to say you scored a big hit again! The IQ-Analyser is just the tool that I've always wanted.
At the very first test he has unmasked one hihat, which did its mischief in the lower midrange ;-)
This will certainly be - together with the IQ-Eq -  my absolute standard tool.

I've been looking for a precisely and reliably working analyser and found it with the IQ-Analyser. I wouldn´t want to work without, it's in use everyday - annoying frequencies are quickly discovered and my productions sound better now.
