Although better known for the incredible product SPAN, Voxengo now turn their expertise towards the development of this multiband EQ, Voxengo Overtone GEQ. This is your Christmas gift for day six.

Voxengo Overtone GEQ

The plugin features two sets of seven bands. You can change the EQ setting so that each side has different settings. The graphical user interface also displays the two sets in an easily understood way. It is possible to either use different settings on A and B or keep them together by using the A+B button.

Available Formats on Voxengo Overtone GEQ

Voxengo Overtone GEQ is available in AU and also in VST plugin format. Furthermore, it comes with multi-channel operation support. It supports up to 8 input/output channels. Voxengo Overtone GEQ offers extensive internal channel routing capabilities. It also supports mid/side channel processing.

What Else Can This Plugin Do Besides EQ?

Besides its EQ functionality, Overtone GEQ also applies seven harmonic enhancement modules to your music. This includes on for each EQ band. Therefore, this creates harmonic textures in your music that is unavailable on most EQ plugins. This latter feature is one of the plugin’s most popular features.

Overtone GEQ was initially created so that audio engineers could apply quick fixes to their work. It allows them to apply EQ shape adjustments. The plugin creates harmonic richness in the audio being created.

What Did I Like About Voxengo’s Overtone GEQ?

The fact that you can’t see the wave formations on the GUI means that you only have your ears to rely on. I think this is great because as sound creators, our ears need to be our best judge. Therefore, having seven levers to change the sound is a good idea.

Another thing I like about Overtone GEQ is the two different levels A and B. I like the fact that you can shape them differently and create different amounts of EQ in your listener’s hearing. That is a clever way of working and one that more VST plugin developers should be inspired by.

What Didn’t I Like About Voxengo’s Overtone GEQ?

The fact that you can’t see the actual waveform is a negative point. This is because it is often easier to judge by seeing the waveform and increasing or decreasing EQ levels. I am not really a fan of EQ’s where you can’t see the actual waveform. However, the fact that you can only hear the difference is a good thing.

The initial idea was just somewhere to put his ideas on the subject of music marketing. However, it has been going strong since then and (at the time of writing) this website is just over 3 years old. Ideas don't dry up because the industry is always changing. New websites with new features are being launched all the time. Therefore, Writer's Block does not feature. I hope you enjoy the blog.
