THE EQ PLUG-IN I WISHED I HAD...
Hi, I'm Björgvin Benediktsson, Icelander, Musician, Audio Engineer and Founder of Audio Issues.
I’m the author of the #1 Amazon best-seller, Step By Step Mixing: How to Create Great Mixes Using Only 5 Plug-ins. I've worked as a live sound engineer, a broadcast recording engineer, a professional touring musician, a freelance mixing and mastering engineer, and an audio educator since I started my career in 2006.
Since 2009 I've been helping musicians and producers like you gain the confidence and skills to make professional music they can be proud to release. The Audio Issues EQ is the plug-in I wish I had when I was starting out and I'm excited to share it with you today so you can fix your muddy mixes, remove the harshness from your high-end, and add that professional sheen to make your mixes radio-ready and release-worthy.
The top module allows you to find all the frustrating frequencies that you want to eliminate from your mixes.
PRE AND POST ANALYZER
See both the incoming signal before the EQ and a post-analyzer that shows you how the frequency response changes after your EQ moves.
HIGH AND LOW-PASS FILTERS
The top module includes a high and low-pass filter with 6 - 18 dB/octave slopes so that you can clean up your low end and tame your highs.
Six-Band Visual EQ
The top module has both a low and high-shelf and a four-band parametric equalizer with +-20 dB boosts/cuts so that you fix any EQ problem with ease.
Make your mix tighter in the low end or wider in the highs with the mid/side mode. You can choose between Left, Right, Stereo, Mid, or Side modes for any of your EQ'ing needs.
Whether you need a narrow notch or a broad boost, the variable q allows you to dial in the exact bandwidth you need to make your tracks stand out.
With a solo-band functionality on each node you can get surgical and hear only what you need to hear to pinpoint the frequencies you want to fix.
dB Resolution Controls
Fine-tune your EQ moves by switching between 15 or 30 dB screen resolution so no matter how much, or how little EQ'ing you need to do, you're in control.
On/Off and In/Out
Instantly reset every node when you've gone too far and easily gain-stage your tracks so that they sit with the rest of your mix.
The Analog Enhancing Frequency Flatterer
The bottom-module is a boost-only additive EQ focused on the flattering frequencies you want to add to your tracks to enhance the sound of your music.
Switch between two different frequency characteristics in each of the seven slots depending on what your tracks need.
Thump and Punch
Add low-end thump or punch to your kick drums, bass guitars, or 808s.
Warmth and Weight
Add low-mid warmth and weight to your vocals, guitars, synths, and keys with the turn of a knob.
Tone and Power
Make your bass instruments cut through the mix on small speakers when you add tone and power.
Bite and Clarity
No more tracks drowning in a busy mix. Add bite to dull tracks and clarity to your entire mix.
Attitude and Edge
Bring out the best of your rock guitars and mix in-your-face vocals that jump out of the speakers.
Presence and Brilliance
Get clean, clear and present vocals, brilliant acoustic guitars, and high-end snap from your snare.
Air and Space
Add professional high-end sheen to any of your tracks and space to your entire mix.
Focus Your Frequencies
Add the exact amount you want to enhance your tracks with the gain and focus knobs.
Automatic Gain Compensation
It's never been easier to get proper gain-staging throughout our dual-module EQ. This is the perfect mode for EQ'ing in the context of the mix so that you can hear whether you're making things sound better or just louder
What Have Users Said About the EQ?
"Thank you so much, this EQ is simply amazing !!! I love the interface and the frequency analyzer and the vocabulary reminder, so useful when you want to discuss a frequency problem. Simply Amazing EQ. This is a Must have! Thanks again."
"The plug-in is great! Started using it last night on tracks. Thanks for making it so user-friendly. Thanks for all your hard work to deliver a stellar product!"
"You’re a goddamn genius! It’s about time someone made something this simple, straightforward and so comprehensive at the same time… I’m a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and DO NOT aspire to be a mixing engineer, but I need a decent rough mixes to demo my material, which I do myself… this EQ is the best I’ve ever used… thanks man, cheers!"
"An immediate and hugely practical understanding of the frequency spectrum and fantastic examples of positive and negative aspects of the key audio frequency bands as related to achieving better mixes.
- Alan Doyle, Recording Engineer, Sound Designer and Score Developer
"I'm able to get a clean and tight low end on this song I'm working on. I cut some of the mud out of the kick and bass, then I let the kick have a little extra 50 Hz and added a little bit around 800 Hz on the bass guitar. That made the low end clear and punchy. This is a great guide to get things moving in the right direction!!! Thank You!!!!"
- Jeff Smith, Mixing Engineer

What is a Langspil?
You may have noticed the EQ preset "Langspil" in the promotional images on this site and elsewhere. I chose the preset "Langspil" because it's a horrendous-sounding traditional Icelandic instrument that sounds like a cat scratching its nails down a chalkboard while simultaneously coughing up a hairball while a baby is being woken up by a 28K dial-up modem. In terms of EQ curves, making a Langspil sound better would probably look something like that, and if the Audio Issues EQ can make a Langspil sound better, it'll work for anything you throw at it!
