Eventide has released SplitEQ, an advanced equalisation plug-in featuring patented Structural Split technology.

The culmination of a multi-year effort, SplitEQ works in a fundamentally different way from traditional EQs for corrective and creative rebalancing, enhancing, repairing, and widening any musical signal or other audio source.

Eventide SplitEQSplitEQ is a parametric EQ with eight bands of precise, musical filters. Eventide’s Structural Split engine divides the incoming audio into separate Transient and Tonal streams that feed the eight bands, and lets engineers view the two streams independently. This approach makes common EQ problems easy to solve even in a complex mix and opens up exciting new musical possibilities.

‘We’re incredibly proud of what our developers have accomplished. They’ve built on the Structural Split technology at the heart of our earlier plug-in, Physion, to do something truly groundbreaking: SplitEQ is a fundamentally new type of musical tool.’ says Eventide founder, Richard Factor.

SplitEQ takes the structure of sound into account. It splits any sound into two streams, mimicking human perception of its tonal and transient elements. After that, users can cut or boost only that part of the sound on which they’re focused. SplitEQ is not just a corrective tool. It is also a new type of creative tool for adding dimension to mixes through its independent Left/Right and Mid/Side panning options. As one of SplitEQ’s developers, Peter McCulloch, asks: ‘We can all hear the transient and tonal parts of a sound, shouldn’t our EQs?’

SplitEQ features an innovative real-time spectrum analyser so one can see and hear the sound in new ways. Users can Solo only the transients, a single band, or only the transients on a single band. The analyzer lets engineers track down problematic resonances or transients by displaying the tonal and transient streams separately, adding a new dimension to their troubleshooting toolkit.

Controls for the underlying Split technology allow fine-tuning and experimentation. EQ curves can be globally or independently scaled. Peak, Notch, Bandpass, High-Shelf, Low-Shelf, Tilt Shelf, High-Pass, and Low-Pass filter types are available with slopes from 6dB to 96dB/octave.

The plug-in’s graphical user interface includes zoom options and can be re-sized. SplitEQ includes a comprehensive library with over 150 presets. A/B buttons allow quick auditioning of two presets or settings plus Undo/ Redo functionality.

SplitEQ is available for Mac and PC in VST, AAX and AU formats for US$179.
