SonEQ 2 is a modular EQ plugin for macOS and Windows, available in AU, VST 2.4, VST 3, and AAX formats (32/64-bit).
The SonEQ 2 modular approach makes it fully customizable. There are 5 modules: Low, Low Mid, Hi Mid, High, and Preamp.
In the default setting, the modules run in ascending order from low to high, with the preamp on the end. You can move the modules around in any order you like, and you can also add modules (up to 16 total). For example, you could add another Low Mid with different settings, or another Preamp for a second
If SonEQ 2 was to become your go-to EQ, the modular approach could be a great feature. You could essentially create and save custom EQ layouts for different instruments and uses. I think the idea of having no more and no fewer controls than you need on a plugin is appealing.
Sonimus say they are bringing analog character and tone to the digital mixing world, and that starts with the Low module. The Low module is inspired by the legendary analog Pultec EQ. It allows you to boost and attenuate the selected frequency simultaneously.
I’m a fan of the Pultec-style EQ and wish I owned an original rather than a clone; I don’t use it all the time, but when I do, I love it.
The Low Mid (45Hz – 4kHz) and Hi Mid (400Hz – 9kHz) modules are similar; each has a boost/attenuate knob and a sweepable frequency selection. The Low Mid has a Hi Q button, and Hi Mid has a Mid Q, which allows you to narrow the curve of the EQ band. It means the SonEQ 2 can be either a broad EQ or far more surgical.
The High module has a stepped frequency selection, as the Low module does, ranging from 6-15kHz.
The preamp features a pair of useful filters (HP/LP) and a drive knob that adds some saturation and some more analog flavor to your audio. Lastly, there is an output knob and an interesting little WOW switch that adds some stereo width.
SonEQ 2 sees a few upgrades from the first version, including oversampling up to 16X. Oversampling can make a significant difference, but the higher you go, the more it hits your CPU.
I can see a lot of people enjoying being able to set up lots of custom instances of SonEQ 2.
