DirectionalEQ is unique from all the App Store because it combines EQ and pan and this is awesome. I explain…
DirectionalEQ is a stereo 5 bands parametric EQ. Each band comes with the same controls. A Gain (+/-20dB), Frequency (16Hz to 22kHz), Filter Q, At this moment everything is “normal" but just below 2 more knobs: A Degree and a Directional Gain. (Below again, Mute, Solo, and the the filter types: band-pass (two types), notch, low-/high-pass, low-shelf, high-shelf and peak).
The Degree knob (-45 to 45 degrees) will pan a band and the Directional Gain controls overall gain in the direction set by the Degree control.
As you can see below, the UI is very simple. For example, no master out level meter, which can be a little bit annoying when you are using the Stand Alone version of DirectionalEQ. Also, and this is not because of the App, but because of what DirectionalEQ allows you to do, you can be a little bit lost while you are shaping an audio signal. Take care of what types of EQ filter you are using on all bands.
Use the Mute and Solo button to check what you are doing...
I love, no, I really love the concept, the processing quality and the Solo button is really helpful…
You can also use it as a conventional 5 bands EQ without to use the 2 Degrees knobs.
A Killer App! A Must Have for real sound engineers....
