Classic PEQ Blue - Education
Algorithmix PEQ Red & Blue
The software processors under review here, Algorithmix's Linear Phase PEQ Red and Classic PEQ Blue, seem set to take the digital plug-in advantage to a new level, going well beyond what is feasible (or even possible) in any kind of outboard, digital or analogue. According to Algorithmix, their Red EQ offers not only linear phase purity of sound, but also a unique proprietary technology which allows for continuous slope adjustment of shelving filters. Blue, meanwhile, is a modelling design offering "the most complete collection of classic equalisers ever in one plug-in", importantly including two designs which have analogue sonic characteristics, but which are "impossible to implement in the analogue domain".
