Logic Pro has no less than 7 EQs in its EQ folder. From EQ that emulate the shapes and sounds of analog hardware, to EQ that can match the sound of one signal to another. Few DAWs rival Logic’s EQ capabilities.
But when you think of EQ in Logic, I bet there’s one that comes to mind before all others. And that’s the Channel EQ.
The Channel EQ is kind of the epitome of the Logic Pro experience. Big and blue, the Channel EQ does one thing, and it does that one thing well. And that’s precise, digital EQing.
A parametric EQ with 8 filters to choose from, the Channel EQ bestows its users:
- Low and high-pass filtering (6 dB/octave up to 48 dB/octave)
- Low and high shelves for thoughtful tonal shaping
- 4 parametric bands for intentional EQing
But that’s not much different from any other digital EQ, is it?
Ah, but that’s not what makes the Channel EQ so special. Here are the reasons I love the Channel EQ:
- Open an instance of the Channel EQ or Linear EQ with a single click. Whether it in the next available Audio FX slot, or first on a Channel Strip already brimming with plugins.
- A scalable, high-resolution Spectrum Analyzer that pairs wonderfully with Logic’s fully resizable plugins.
- Process Stereo track channels independent from one another. EQ the left, right, mid or side content independent from one another.
And if that wasn’t enough, the Channel EQ provides:
- A high-quality, oversampling mode.
- Adjustable resolution for the Spectrum Analyzer.
- Various flavors of Q-coupling.
Do you see what I mean? The Channel EQ is loaded! So today’s let’s dig into some of its awesome features.
