Crave DSP Crave EQ v1.3.4 WIN
Size 6 Mb
Crave EQ was built with one purpose: uncompromising sound quality. To that end, we have created 3 highly accurate EQ models based on an ideal analog equalizer. Each model is aimed at delivering the best possible sound for a specific task.
For pure analog sound, the analog phase mode is a reproduction of clean analog hardware – an essential feature for professional quality mixing. This kind of modelling requires a small amount of latency which we’ve managed to keep astonishingly low at just 48 samples – 1.1ms at 44kHz or 0.5ms at 96kHz.
When zero latency is a must, the digital phase mode offers a true analog EQ curve with digital phase. Digital EQs based on FIR filters often struggle with bass resolution and digital EQs based on IIR filters often have poor high frequency response. Our filtering technology ensures accuracy across the whole frequency spectrum with very little CPU usage.
For scenarios that call for linear phase, the linear phase mode offers the same true analog EQ curve as the other modes with zero phase. As you may know, higher quality linear phase processing requires higher latency. To ensure you’re always getting the highest quality, the appropriate latency is selected based on the sample rate of the host.
3 Equalizers in 1: Digital, Analog, and Linear Phase EQ
Crave EQ provides three EQ processing modes: analog, digital and linear phase. All modes offer stunningly accurate filters.
Accurate analog emulation with only 48 samples of latency – 1.1ms at 44100Hz.
Detailed bass resolution and undistorted high frequency response with zero latency.
Mastering grade linear phase processing.
What’s New in Version 1.3
Transparent Phase Model
Transparent phase combines the best of both the analog and digital worlds. At lower filter frequencies it employs an analog phase model and at higher filter frequencies uses an innovative phase suppression algorithm to deliver precision at low frequencies and transparency at high frequencies.
The diagram below shows the four phase models in Crave EQ (analog, digital, transparent and linear) for a peaking filter at 5kHz. In this example, the transparent phase model is set to a lookahead/crossover of 5ms/800Hz.
Decibel meter scalable from -90dB/+30dB to -12dB/+12dB. Input levels added alongside output levels.
Above the decibel meter is a new peak hold indicator (click to reset).
