Transparent phase is our new phase suppression algorithm, click here to find out more about transparent phase.
Transparent phase combines the best of both the analog and digital worlds. At lower filter frequencies it employs an analog phase model and at higher filter frequencies uses an innovative phase suppression algorithm to deliver precision at low frequencies and transparency at high frequencies.
The following diagram shows the four phase models in Crave EQ (analog, digital, transparent and linear) for a peaking filter at 5kHz. The transparent phase model is set to a lookahead/crossover of 5ms/800Hz. The crossover is configurable to trade-off latency against phase suppression.
In the above diagram, the analog phase model faithfully recreates the phase characteristics of an analog Butterworth peaking filter at 5kHz using a very small amount of latency (just 1.1ms at a sample rate of 44kHz).
The digital phase model provides zero latency at the expense of deviating from analog phase at high frequencies.
The transparent phase model has analog phase at low frequencies and approaches linear phase at higher frequencies with a narrow transition band between the two regions.
The linear phase model stays at 0° accross the frequency spectrum at the expense of much higher latency.
Decibel meter scalable from -90dB/+30dB to -12dB/+12dB. Input levels added alongside output levels.
Above the decibel meter is a new peak hold indicator (click to reset).
Linear phase latency is now adjustable.
Automatic gain compensation adjusts the output gain to compensate for the effect of filtering on perceived loudness.
Input gain controls complement the existing output gain controls.
Use the extended preset functionality to specify exactly what parameter subsets a preset will affect.
Use the extended preset functionality to specify default settings for new plugin instances.
The filter bypass is now exposed as an automation parameter.
The gain and frequency display of the current cursor position are highlighted on the axes.
The AAX format is now supported for Pro Tools users.
Crave EQ is now available for macOS 10.9 and above.
The spectrum analyzer now has a smoothing control. Also, the resolution and latency of the spectrum analyzer is clearly marked.
You can solo a band from the context menu or via double-click.
Filter bands, knobs and axes can be controlled via the mouse wheel.
Filter slope can be controlled via Ctrl mouse wheel on Windows and Command mouse scroll on macOS. You can make finer adjustments to bands by holding Shift while dragging.
