GlissEQ is an analog-style equalizer in PC VST plug-in format. The most
interesting thing GlissEQ offers is its dynamic equalization performance. Using
almost any existing equalizer, you always get what you have set: e.g., if you
specify a +6 dB boost at 100 Hz you get exactly a +6 dB boost at 100 Hz, also
visible on the spectrum analyser. GlissEQ offers a slightly different approach.
When you specify +6 dB at 100 Hz, you don't necessarily get +6 dB of gain.
Actual filter gain is adjusted dynamically according to the program material you
This `dynamic nature' of GlissEQ gives you a much more friendly, assisting
filtering experience. Boosting up the highs will not necessarily create the
fatiguing effect of overload. Instead, you will get a pleasant
transient-emphasizing effect bringing life and dimension to your track: thus,
GlissEQ sounds simply musical.
This transient emphasis works for every frequency you tune the filter to: e.g.,
it can be useful at the lower and the mid frequencies to give more punch to the
track. Moreover, the strength of transient emphasis and the overall filter gain
adjustment can be controlled with a special 'Dyn' control. In reality, this
'Dyn' control adds a whole new dimension to the equalizer as you know it!
Beside this wonderful `dynamic nature' GlissEQ offers a built-in FFT spectrum
analyzer. Moreover, the spectrum of the track can be exported to any other
instance of GlissEQ thus making interchannel spectrum overlays possible. This
can help you to free frequency ranges in one track to allow the instrument in
another track occupying these frequencies breathe.

Why GlissEQ is so unique?
With GlissEQ you can emphasize the transients in a very natural and musical way.
E.g., say you have a poorly defined bass. In this case, you simply need to tune
a moderately wide Peaking filter around 80-100 Hz with Dyn around 7. Then simply
add a gain. And so, even if your bass had almost no outstanding transients, it
will have now.
The same applies to the higher frequencies.
In the end, it makes everything much more pronounced.
Please note the following: most of the time during equalizing you won't always
need the given filter gain, because parts of the program material can already be
crowded with some frequencies. The standard filter will increase these
already-loud frequencies, too, which would not sound musical. Dynamic EQ in such
situation will decrease the filter's gain, thus making the equalization sound
better and somehow more natural/musical.
What's New Version 2.5, 24-mar-2005
1. Cursor point readout implemented. This readout is shown in the bottom left
corner of the control surface.
2. Import function implemented. You may use this function to load EQ band
definition file generated by Elevayta SpaceBoy plug-in.
