It took only 3 days* to reimagine the last 50 years of EQ
*3 days since release! Our developers have been working for years on SplitEQ™. And, it benefits from Eventide’s 50 years of devotion to audio!
George Massenburg invented the Parametric Equalizer nearly 50 years ago when he showed up at the 1972 AES with a white paper titled, “Parametric Equalization,” laying the groundwork for his sweep-tunable EQ. Since then, it’s been perfected and can’t get any better. Or can it?

SplitEQ takes a fundamentally new approach. Rather than throw the kitchen sink at the entire signal, it’s a surgical device that first splits the signal into two sonically meaningful parts so you can work on each part separately.

Those who have tried SplitEQ have found that it gets them where they’re headed faster and better.
For many, it’s already replaced their old EQ. Here’s what some say:
