The proximity:EQ+ plug-in lets you amplify or silence certain parts of your room acoustics – depending on your vision of the perfect sound in post-production. Whether music or speech – proximity:EQ+ lets you edit sound spaces as never before, including editing natural reverb, frequency-selective derevereration, and isolate and remove room modes.

Move Your Sources Closer
Often enough when interviewing, the recording microphone is placed too far from the source; or the grand piano turns out muddy because too much reverb is recorded. In these situations, proximity:EQ+ lets you draw the voice significantly closer and give the muddy piano a crisper sound in post-production.

Lowering the spatial components increases the direct sound, putting the sound source front and center. Frequency-selective dereverberation allows you to precisely separate direct from indirect components of the signal.

Give It More Space
Other times, the microphones end up getting too close to the sound source. Your mix then lacks spaciousness. proximity:EQ+ seamlessly distances the sound source without affecting its original character. This makes your entire mix more transparent and opens new ways of creating sonic depth.

By adapting the proximity feature, you can emphasize the natural spaciousness of the recording and thus freely adjust the distance from the sound source. You can also automatically create an acoustic fade-out - an atmospheric ambience effect particuarly convenient for the post-production of filmns.

Optimize Room Acoustics
Even when you meticulously plan a setup and perfectly position the microphones – the acoustics of a given room simply are what they are. The sophisticated technology of proximity:EQ+ opens entirely new possibilities for amending detrimental room modes in post-production while leaving the direct sound entirely untouched.

The plug-in separates the direct sound and the reverb of a recording. With the help of frequency-selective adjustments, proximity: EQ+ even lets you edit undesired room resonances distinctly from the natural reverb of a recording.
