Sound On Sound review of Flux Plug-ins
Epure is a five-band EQ plug-in that, at first glance, appears very similar to many others. However, hidden away are a number of features that lift it out of the sea of EQs out there. For one thing, it has the common feature from all the Flux plug-ins of morphing between presets, which I found especially useful on an equaliser.
Then there is a stunning piece of user interface design in that the display auto-ranges as you adjust the EQ cut and boost. In the first screen, right, I have boosted a low-frequency peak EQ by just under 6dB. In the second, I have increased that to just over 6dB and as you can see, the display has changed its resolution. I have seen this feature on EQ plug-ins on other platforms but to see it implemented on a Pro Tools plug-in is brilliant. It makes subtle adjustments so much easier, as you can really see what you are doing. I also like the way that each section has its own colour-coded line showing what effect it is having, and then the shaded area shows the overall response: so simple and yet so effective.
