What is parametric EQ (PEQ)?
Modified on: Sun, 3 Nov, 2019 at 8:21 PM
It is a DSP filter. For PEQ, each filter cuts or boosts a range of frequencies and each filter has three controls. Frequency: the center of the frequency range to be cut or boosted, gain: the amount of boost or cut and Q: the "sharpness" of the boost or cut, with higher Q meaning a narrower filter. Thus parametric EQ allows a single filter to be very narrow or quite wide.
An application note points out the difference between parametric EQ and graphic EQ.
