DSP Engine: Parametric Equalizer

MUSE - Precision Audio Control: Parametric Equalizer

Introduction

The Parametric Equalizer is part of the MUSE suite. For more information on accessing MUSE, see here.

Each MUSE configuration comes with a Parametric Equalizer by default. You can configure multiple equalizers if desired using the "Add Filter" button. You can also use the Parametric EQ from inside of the Procedural Equalizer if you only want to apply it to a subset of the channels.

When using the Parametric EQ, be sure to keep an eye on Headroom Management to avoid clipping.
