This website contains detailed descriptions of the DynPEQ plugins and dynamic parametric equalization in general. We know that even though the processing opens up a large space of possibilities, it is understandable for people to say, “Yes, but what does it do?” To that end, the pro audio community has been discovering many applications for which DynPEQ is well-suited and a few for which DynPEQ is uniquely suited.

Look for Us on the Avid Blog

Our video featuring Nathaniel Kunkel and Alan Meyerson has been published on the Avid Blog. We added a precis of what’s in it for those in a hurry. You can also find the video without the writeup here.

We talked to DynPEQ product advocate and re-recording mixer Tom Marks on the sound of Sense8 season two. Check out Sense8 on Netflix. The Tom Marks interview is published on the Avid Blog in July 2017.

Wholegrain and DynPEQ were featured in the Avid Blog in January 2017. Check out this cool article.

Version 1.3.3 Is Here!

We have released version 1.3.3 of the DynPEQ plugins. New features are increasing the maximum boost and cut range of the processor and improving audio modulation quality. For the Pro Tools plugin, the 1.3.3 release supports in-app installation and the new stem formats included in version 12.8. For the Audio Units plugin, 1.3.3 has extended its compatibility range back to Mac OS X version 10.6.

The DynPEQ band toolchest in version 1.3.3 contains repaired bandsets for RIAA decoding and new bandsets for Red Book deemphasis. If you are a user of 1.3.2 or lower and would like to audition the revised bandsets, please contact support for help in doing so.

Version 1.3.3 is a free update for holders of a 1.3 license (with license strings QuartetDynPEQv2 or TrioDynPEQv2). To get the update distribution, either contact your reseller or drop us a line for Quartet or Trio upgrade instructions.

Read All About It!

The DynPEQ plugins are the subject of a review by Darwin Grosse in the June 2017 issue of Recording Magazine.  Here is a highlight.

“Perhaps the aspect that has me most interested in using this product is the way it makes me think about my work–while it is clearly both an EQ and a compressor/expander, it is viable to approach it like a super-EQ.”
