xEQ is a parametric EQ/Tone Control Audio Unit. It consists of Low and High shelf filters and three Peak/Cut filters.

It is very useful for placing around distortion effects. Place one xEQ before your distortion effect to act as a preamp's tone control. Place another xEQ after your distortion effect to simulate a speaker cabinet's frequency response curve. We provide some example presets that are useful starting points for tailoring your tone. Presets that start with TC are tone control curves and those marked with an SC are for speaker cabinet response curves.

What's New:
The parameter and label colors can now be set by the user in the registration/preferences panel. The color settings will apply to all Twister AUs so that this only needs to be changed once.
We've added more options for setting parameter values. Parameter displays can be still be controlled with the big knob. But, now you can now adjust parameter settings by dragging and clicking on the parameter readout. Dragging vertically changes the value quickly and dragging horizontally changes the value slowly for finer control. The values can also be adjusted with a mouse scroll wheel by hovering over the parameter readout. Scrolling vertically gives faster change and if you have the ability to scroll horizontally (a Mighty Mouse, for example), horizontal scrolling changes the value slower for finer control.
