SlickEQ more tips & tricks

Part 1. SlickEQ free version

1.1. Listen to your favorite music through SlickEQ

SlickEQ is good enough to be used as hi-fi equalizer. On Windows you can use <George Yohng’s VST Wrapper for Foobar2000 player> to listen to your favorite music through it!


  1. Set output level to -3 dB to prevent clipping
  2. Set “calibrate” to 0 dB to leave harmonics added at the edge of hearing threshold
  3. Don’t over-EQ the music. Keep gain values below 3 dB.


1.2. Save your CPU cycles when mixing!

SlickEQ is a bit CPU heavy. We performed optimizations for Sandy Bridge architecture but for modern energy saver simplified CPUs in thin notebooks or for old CPUs the CPU load may be too high.


  1. Turn EQ Sat off and set Out Stage to Linear. If non-linear processing is not used, SlickEQ may consume 3 times less CPU cycles! If you already have some saturation on a track you may choose to turn off the saturation in SlickEQ.
  2. Turn stereo mode to “Mono” if you’re processing a mono audio signal. In this case SlickEQ will consume 2 times less CPU cycles! NOTE: some DAWs report that they have a mono track and in this case stereo mode button is grayed and SlickEQ operates in mono mode automatically.
