FabFilter Pro‑Q 3 Help
FabFilter Pro-Q 3 is available as an AUv3 plug-in for iPad in the App Store. Using Pro-Q 3 on a touch screen is slightly different from using it with a mouse:
In the EQ display:
In most host apps, the AUv3 plug-in version of Pro-Q 3 opens at the default interface size for AUv3 plug-ins, which is quite small and doesn't have enough space to show the band controls. You can fully use all of Pro-Q 3's features directly from the EQ display and the pop-up menu, but we recommend to use a host app that offers resizing for the best user experience, such as AUM, Auria, or n-Track Pro.
Unlike the regular plug-in, the AUv3 plug-in offers no resizing or full screen mode from the plug-in interface itself: this must be provided by the host app.
To organize presets on iOS, open the presets menu and swipe to the left on any preset or subfolder to see options to delete or edit it. When editing a preset or folder, you can rename it and move it to another folder.
The Pro-Q 3 app that contains the AUv3 plug-in serves as a stand-alone host that simply routes audio from the microphone to the plug-in and plays it back in real-time via the speakers or headphone output. You need to manually start the audio engine using the Audio On/Off switch at the bottom, but first make sure that the speaker volume is not too high to avoid excessive feedback! We do recommend to use an AUv3 host app like Auria, Cubasis, AUM or GarageBand to take full advantage of Pro-Q 3's features.
