For the reason that the plug-in development uses the JAVA framework you need to have an installed JAVA Runtime Environment.
If you don't have the JRE (JAVA Runtime Environment) installed then you'll get it here:

Plug-in Installation:

Windows VST:
Just unzip the dedicated ZIP-File and copy the plug-in folder into your VST plug-in directory.

Apple Mac OS Audio Units and VSTs:
1.) Unzip the dedicated ZIP-File
2.) Copy ParametricEqualizer.vst to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
3.) Copy ParametricEqualizer.component to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

Important: To use the Audio Units you need to copy the *.vst as well.


Updates the equalizer parameter. The update usually happens automatically by hitting the <return> key after changing a parameter.

The equalizer works like an analog parametric equalizer which changes the phase of the signal. If the phase check box is selected then the green curve represents the phase change caused by the selected filter combination.

Filter Type:
The following filter types are available:

+ EQ (standard peak equalizer)
+ Low Shelf
+ High Shelf
+ Low Pass
+ High Pass
+ Band Pass
+ Notch

Q defines the bandwith or steepness of the selected filter.

Frequency [Hz]:
The center frequency of the EQ peaking filter, Notch or Band Pass as well as the 3dB cut-off frequency of the Low-/High-Shelf or Low-/High-Pass filter.

Gain [dB]:
Amplification or attenuation of the selected filter.
