Stepped controls in SlickEQ

Why do you want to use stepped controls in an equalizer? I see 2 possible reasons:

  1. To quickly adjust the sound you like (something like a coarse tuning before the fine tuning)
  2. To quickly match 2 instances of the plugin

Probably you didn’t know that SlickEQ supports stepped controls by right mouse drag or Ctrl + mouse drag on knobs.

This is how the snap points are defined by default:

lowBandFreqParam=”30,40,60,85,120,175,250,350,500,700,1k”
midBandFreqParam=”100,150,250,400,650,1k,1.5k,2.5k,4k,6.3k,10k”
highBandFreqParam=”500,750,1.2k,1.8k,2.8k,4.4k,7k,10k,16k,25k,40k”
hpFreqParam=”10,15,20,30,40,60,85,120,170,250,350″
lowBandGainParam=”-18,-16,-14,-12,-10,-8,-6,-4,-2,0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18″
midBandGainParam=”-18,-16,-14,-12,-10,-8,-6,-4,-2,0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18″
highBandGainParam=”-18,-16,-14,-12,-10,-8,-6,-4,-2,0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18″

And now the secret information. The snap points can be changed! Unfortunately it doesn’t work per-preset basis but only as global setting.
