FabFilter Pro‑Q 3 Help
Since its original release in 2009, FabFilter Pro-Q has become the trusted workhorse EQ plug-in for many engineers and producers around the world, widely praised for its superb workflow, excellent sound quality and extensive feature set. With version 3, we're bringing Pro-Q to a new level, introducing features like dynamic EQ, surround support up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2, per-band mid/side processing, and much more.
FabFilter Pro-Q 3 gives you the highest possible sound quality, a complete feature set, and a gorgeous, intelligent interface that is designed to help you get 'that' sound quickly and easily.
At first glance, FabFilter Pro-Q 3 looks quite similar to its predecessor. But looks are deceiving! Of course, the clean design and intelligence of Pro-Q 2 is still present, but a lot of exciting new functionality has been added to improve your sound and workflow:
And of course, all the goodness of the Pro-Q 2 is still here: highest possible sound quality, Natural and Linear Phase processing, univeral slope support for all EQ shapes, EQ match, a gorgeous, resizeable interface with full screen more for easy and precise editing, up to 24 EQ bands, intelligent band solo mode, stereo or mid/side processing, intelligent multi-band selection and editing for maximum ease and efficiency, spectrum grab, GPU-powered graphics acceleration, double-click text entry of parameter values, different display ranges: 3 dB and 6 dB ranges for mastering, 12 dB and 30 dB for mixing, Pro Tools hardware control surfaces support, MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B comparison, and an extensive help file with interactive help hints.
Upgrading from Pro-Q version 2 to the new Pro-Q 3 is safe and easy: installing Pro-Q 3 will not replace or delete the previous Pro-Q 2 and Pro-Q version 1 plug-ins. All versions will co-exist and can be used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Pro-Q 2 or Pro-Q 1 without problems! Of course, FabFilter Pro-Q 3 opens all presets from Pro-Q 2 and Pro-Q 1 without problems. See Upgrading to Pro-Q 3 for more information.
