Features

Perfect your live workflow


Real-time mixing support for enhanced sonic performance

Your experience
makes the difference

smart:EQ live analyzes the audio signal, interprets it musically and creates a spectral balance in real-time. This helps you to concentrate on what’s important and to creatively focus on the main event. Now you can enhance the listening experience for artists and audiences, instead of having to constantly troubleshoot.


Most of the time, live engineers are occupied balancing the unexpected and the necessary. Constant problem solving is your daily routine. The lack of time for proper sound checks, quick changes in the people speaking, sudden shifts in frequency and volume won’t allow you to catch a break. Often two hands are just not enough – and that’s where smart:EQ live comes into play.



 

Tweak the AI for your personal mixing style

Just what you need,
only when you want it

smart:EQ live is an adaptive equalizer that follows its own rules. The content-sensitive algorithm is a reliable mixing assistant for all types of live shows. With its custom-made profiles you direct the plug-in how it reacts to different sound sources. It will always follow your lead.


Optimize the smart:engineTM to your personal mixing style with various settings. Threshold and the limit line serve as initial guidelines for the adaptive EQ. Adjust the reactivity of the self-learning bands as well as their bandwidth and sensitivity. Give smart:EQ live precise instructions – it takes care of the rest.



Built for live

Super-flexible and resilient

The user-friendly interface of smart:EQ live is especially designed for live use. Informed by years of hands-on experience, the practice-oriented selection of parameters facilitates a targeted adaptation and control of the plug-in to your purposes.

smart:EQ live is a powerful partner in any situation and for all types of audio signals. The plug-in also serves as a basic audio safety net. The smart:filter is very resilient to feedback.
