Eventide SplitEQ, Advanced EQ Tool For Transient and Tonal Control

Eventide today announced SplitEQ, in their words an advanced equalization tool unlike anything else on the market. It’s the follow up to the groundbreaking Physion


SplitEQ is a mixing/mastering EQ (now on sale!) that enables you to surgically address common equalization problems, even in a complex mix. Eventide’s patented Structural Split™ technology splits the incoming audio into Transient and Tonal signals. Once the signals are split, you can apply equalization and panning separately to each, making many tough EQ problems easy to solve. 

For example: “I want to increase the low thud of the kick drum, but a low-shelf boost will also make the sound muddy.” In SplitEQ, this problem is easy to solve—simply apply a low-shelf boost to the Transient signal only.

Splice Rent-to-Own

Under the hood, SplitEQ operates two EQs in parallel, one for the Transient signal, and one for the Tonal signal. This allows you to adjust Transient or Tonal signals independently or together. Because there are twice as many EQs, there are also twice as many controls and curves on the plot. SplitEQ provides linked controls for adjusting Transient and Tonal values together and uses color-coding to show which signal a control affects. As you learn to use SplitEQ, you will be delighted to discover how many common EQ problems it can solve, as well as the numerous new creative possibilities it inspires.

Whether you’re working on individual tracks, a full mix, or cleaning up a two-track loop, you’ll find SplitEQ to be an inspiring and powerful tool that allows you to approach material in a new, musically and sonically meaningful way.
