game changer

Pro Q helped me really grasp the concept of additive and subtractive EQ while it enabled me to perform those tasks more efficiently. The cross-track visualization component and surprisingly low DSP usage really puts the bow on the present and shuts the mouth of any fab filter naysayers. I was able to afford one FabFilter app and I was very happy I made that decision Pro Q when my mixes started immediately improving and sounding so much more professional. Looking forward to slowly collecting all of these desktop-level apps for my ipad.

Inaccurate!!!! 👎🏼

I used a single pure tone to measure the accuracy of this EQ and it turned out to be off by 20Hz at least. I used a free app called NA tuner for A&B, the NA tuner gave correct reading. I emailed customer service ( Ralph ) just to hear that it works fine on their end, after several emails they requested video of my test and the sample I used, I sent them multiple times, after 3 weeks of emailing back and forth all I got is, we didn’t receive the sample even though the email thread includes multiple attachments of the same wav file. They are playing me and wasting my time just so they won’t admit that their Auv3 isn’t accurate. Last time I purchase anything from this developer.

Wow wow

I started using my ipad for live gigs with an interface with aum , I was looking for a good equalizer for my iPad 6 generation shouldn’t take up much CPU process, also something to be able to work with midi And guess what I don’t have nothing bad to say I think it just works great. I am also very happy with the compressor on every band in two words.! Just great. !Thanks
