Sonible Smart EQ+ Tutorial and Review
The Smart Module of frei:raum.
With the intelligent smart:EQ+ plug-in, audio tracks take on distinct personalities. The special thing about it? The perfect mix is ready within 30 seconds.
Thousands of hours spent mixing have inspired us to create an EQ with added value, without turning the tonal balancing of a recording into a nervous tightrope act. And here it is: the smart:EQ+. It’s the perfect tool if you want to let technology work for you or complete audio post-processing on the fly. As part of the EQ+ series, the smart:EQ+ takes care of finding the optimum sound characteristics, thus ensuring audio quality that’s a treat for the ears.
The linear-phase 8-band EQ has a feature that allows processing to occur at a revolutionary speed: the ability to learn. The smart plug-in analyses your audio material, identifies spectral imbalances, and proposes fully automatic solutions within seconds. The familiar look of the user interfaces lets you work in the most intuitive way, so that you can immediately make use of all the smart:EQ+ has to offer.
Always one step ahead:
More Presence in the Mix: With the smart:EQ+, you can do magic in audio quality for the most discerning. And magic is hardly an exaggeration. Each band can either be used in the unique “smart mode”, offering automatic detection and removal of problematic resonances, or in classical mode for manual EQing. The complex smart filters make your audio material more distinct and add the character you need to the entire mix, lending more powerful audio muscles to the selected frequency ranges or tracks.
Radiant Quality in Broadcasting: For those editing audio material for film, television or radio, the clock seems to tick especially loud. In just a short time, ready-made mixes have to be finished, and they also have to convince your listeners. Thanks to the smart bands, the smart:EQ+ proves a reliable partner when sending individual tracks or entire mixes through an automatic correction loop. For the restoration of audio material, you can activate the plug-in to dramatically improve quality. In doing so, interfering resonances (superelevation) and extinctions of the smart:EQ+ are detected and corrected.
Video Sound in Screening Quality: Mixing video sound often turns out to be a real obstacle for audiophile editors, and it always seems to come up right before reaching your goal. As producers, we enjoy the smart:EQ+ function ourselves, which provides flawless audio quality in no time at all. Even without sound editing skills, you can use voice mode to get your optimal video sound mix. Once you’ve marked one area, the self-learning EQ does the rest by itself, and creates an audible sound balance.
