DrumQ

DrumQ

Take control of your drum's space in the mix!

Quickly dial in your drum tone as well as its appearance on smaller speakers and open room for all the other competing elements. DrumQ is a static/dynamic EQ who's frequency centers are set to octave multiples of the resonant frequency of the drum. A secondary, "Alternate Resonance" can also be added to subtly or drastically change the character of the drum as well.

How often when looking at old mixes, do you find that the cuts and boosts on your drum eq's are centered around multiples of the drum's resonant frequency? Perhaps this realization has led to you always keeping a calculator app open?

At aiXdsp, we don't just want to get rid of unnecessary mouse-clicks, but unnecessary calculators as well! Loop a section of the drum in question and turn the "Tune Frequency" knob until the blue vertical line on the spectrum window lines up with the fundamental resonant frequency of the drum. You will see that all of the EQ frequency centers have now changed to octaves of that new "Tune Frequency". In many if not most cases, you will also see that the drum itself has some strong peaks or dips that those frequencies.

Try cutting and boosting at these different octaves and rejoice in not having to fiddle around with calculators, fine tuning and direct entries just to get the frequencies right. Got it wrong? No problem, turning the "Tune Frequency" knob automatically adjusts all bands across all octaves!
