Quartet and Trio DynPEQ version 1.3.3, currently supports Pro Tools 10 and above (AAX & AAXDSP); along with Audio Unit workstations on Mac OS 10.6 and above.
Trio DynPEQ is a plug-in offering three bands of dynamic parametric equalization geared for monophonic input processing.

A single band is a parametric filter, selectable to peak/dip or shelf, with a corresponding dynamics curve. The RMS energy of the input signal is measured in the band of interest, and the band energy is applied to the dynamics curve to modulate the boost/cut level of the parametric filter. A band can easily be configured to act as a static parametric band or a traditional dynamics processor, in addition to its unique functionality.
Great care has been taken under the signal processing hood so that the operation of this new paradigm is performed as unobtrusively as possible. We realize that the best processors are the hardest to detect.
In addition to DynPEQ, Trio offers other useful processors to the audio engineer. The input signal is filtered by a DC-blocker that can be tuned all the way down to 0 Hz. Gain controls for both pre-DynPEQ and post-DynPEQlevels assure that the plugin cooperates with the rest of the processing chain.
Because of the complexity of this plugin, there are special operational features that assist in your work. There are A/B registers within the plugin itself for comparative listening, along with DynPEQ and effect cut buttons. There is a persistent store outside of the plugin and workstation for useful DynPEQ band settings, for operations such as microphone enhancement, control of resonances, de-hum, brightness, and your own creations.

“The DynPEQ plugins are a Swiss army knife with the precision of a scalpel.”
—Tom Marks, Re-Recording Mixer, Warner Bros.
“Wholegrain’s DynPEQ algorithm is unparalleled in its field. The speed and musicality of its processing made me recognize that this is a tool I cannot work without. The DynPEQ plugins are as lightning fast as they are smooth and artifact free–to say nothing of the fact that Quartet embodies the best brick wall limiter I have ever used! A game changer for sure.”
—Nathaniel Kunkel, award-winning producer and engineer, Studio Without Walls
