Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Incredible Versatility from This EQ and Filter Engine

Note: This is a specially priced version of Pro-Q 2 for qualified students and teachers. Proof of eligibility is required. For more information, call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer.

More than a powerful EQ plug-in, the FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is ready to become your go-to sound shaping tool. Make subtle tweaks or heavily filter your audio with a wide range of filter types and up to 24 EQ bands. Make your snare drums crack, add brilliance to vocals, or even match the EQ curve of one track to another. If you only had one EQ plug-in for production and mixing, Pro-Q 2 would be a smart choice. Engineers at Sweetwater normally would use at least two or three distinct filter and EQ plug-ins to cover all of the functionality offered by the FabFilter Pro-Q 2 plug-in.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 Filter/EQ Plug-in at a Glance:
  • This EQ can sound transparent or analog-like
  • Piano Roll display makes musical mixing easier than ever
  • Auto Gain mode makes mixing smoother and easier
This EQ can sound transparent or analog-like

In addition to the ultra-transparent Linear Phase mode on the FabFilter Pro-Q 2 plug-in, you'll find a Natural Phase mode that has an undeniably analog vibe to it. Natural Phase mode matches the magnitude response and phase response of an analog equalizer, without unwanted audible artifacts. At Sweetwater, we know that digital EQs begin to show their true colors when you start boosting heavily, and that's where Pro-Q 2 is most impressive.

Piano Roll display makes musical mixing easier than ever

Mix engineers at Sweetwater know that where you set your EQ frequencies has a huge impact on your mix. If you're cutting a frequency that falls close to the key of the song you're mixing, you'll notice a drop in energy and excitement and may not know why. The piano roll view in Pro-Q 2 shows you at a glance what note range you're working in, allowing you to make more musical EQ choices and better-sounding mixes.

Auto Gain mode makes mixing smoother and easier

When you're making heavy boosts or cuts to an EQ, you're altering the overall volume level of that track. The Auto Gain mode in the FabFilter Pro-Q 2 plug-in compensates the main output based on how you're boosting or cutting. When you need to make an EQ tweak after your basic mix levels have been set, you can do so without upsetting the overall balance of your mix.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 Filter/EQ Plug-in Features:
  • Comprehensive EQ and filter plug-in for Mac and PC

The FabFilter Pro-Q 2 could become your go-to EQ and filter plug-in!
