Music Tech AwardsThe Pro-Q Equalizer received awards from Computer Music and MusicTech.

The Graphic User Interface brings some wonderful colors and is decently large and very clean.

This Equalizer has exactly two things that any EQ should have: easy to use and it sounds good. The user interface is very intuitive for both novices or for those experienced engineers.

Pro-Q allow you to add a filter where you want without any band restrictions and also you can select and affect one or more bands simultaneously by simply selecting them.

Also the built in spectrum analyzer is very useful and efficient to search those mistakes which usually are not perceived by your ear.

All features and innovation of Pro-Q makes it a “must have”.
