FabFilter Pro-Q 3

FabFilter Pro-Q 3

FabFilter is one of the few equalizers with dynamic alignment. Automatically adjusts the attack and release time, cuts off conflicting frequencies and equalizes the sound volume. The plugin has many built-in presets of different genres of music adjusting by beatmaker itself.

Another advantage is "spectral links". This is the separate graphical interface for comparing the spectras of several tracks in a single window. FabFilter Pro allows you to determine the frequency intersections of different instruments (e. g. syntheizer and bass) and edit them during the track plays.

The main disadvantage of FabFilter equalizer is really high price.
