Graphic/Bar EQ VST

Post by uthemus » Fri Oct 24, 2014 7:50 pm

Hey Everyone--I'm new to the forum. Just curious if anyone has a recommendation for a (free) graphic/bar EQ VST. I'm currently running a 64-bit version of Ableton 9 on a MacPro. Thanks in advance!

i don't know of any free EQs that are better than EQ8 in Live... if you put an instance of Spectrum on to your track you should be able to get a lot of detail
The Ableton Device Spectrum not only shows you the frequencies being generated by your music in real time, it also will show you the specific note that a frequency corresponds to. Hold your mouse anywhere over the graphical display in Spectrum and a box in the lower right corner will show you the exact frequency, decibel level, and corresponding note based on where your mouse is.

Thanks, H2O. Totally agree with you on EQ8 in Live; however, I should redact and indicate that I am looking for an equivalent of Spectrum but with Bars. :oops: :roll:

yeah, i was afraid that's what your true/specific aim was. sorry, i did actually google around for a minute before i posted. i thought BlueCat's EQ had bars. when that didn't pan out i tried a several more sites but found nothing for Mac. i was hoping the spcetrum/EQ8 combo would give you something close.

good luck.
